Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben Dahan said there is no such thing as a lone terrorist, and that behind each one is the Palestinian Authority’s incitement.

Ben Dahan called on the Attorney-General to authorize the army to demolish terrorists’ houses immediately after they attack and not wait a year.

“Demolishing terrorists’ houses and deporting their families is the best deterrent and most efficient way to deal with terrorism by individuals,” he said. “A wave of terror won’t scare us. We returned to our land in order to stay.”

In an interview with Army Radio, Ben Dahan called on civilians to legally carry a firearm and to “be alert and prevent another terrorist attack.”
