'Wholly Unacceptable': US Slams Israeli Minister's Nuclear Threats On Gaza

Israeli minister Amichay Eliyahu was suspended over his nuclear remarks on Gaza.

Washington:

The United States on Monday condemned as “wholly unacceptable” comments by a junior member of the Israeli cabinet who appeared to voice openness to the idea of Israel carrying out a nuclear strike on Gaza.

“We continue to believe that it is important for all sides of this conflict to refrain from hateful rhetoric,” deputy State Department spokesperson Vedant Patel told a briefing.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday disciplined the cabinet member in question.
