Economy Minister and Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett lauded on Wednesday the advancement by a preliminary Knesset vote on a bill to limit presidential pardons for terrorists.

"If this bill had existed previously, perhaps many murderers would have understood that it isn't worth it to kill Jews," Bennett said in response to the passage of the initial reading of the bill that is co-sponsored by his party's chairwoman Ayelet Shaked.

"We will continue to advance the bill and pass it as soon as possible," Bennett said.
