MK Binyamin Ben-Eliezer (Labor) said on Wednesday that the IDF should have shot at the activists that attacked soldiers earlier this week.

"The gang of criminals took a brick, threw it at an officer's head and almost killed him," he said during a Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Meeting with head of the IDF Manpower Directorate, Maj.-Gen. Orna Barbivai. "Too bad the IDF didn't arrest anyone; too bad they didn't shoot; too bad they didn't react."

The former defense minister said that if someone tries to kill an IDF soldier, it shouldn't matter if the person is Jewish or Arab.
