Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On attacked the security cabinet's decision to destroy the homes of terrorists, saying it is the kind of step he takes when he has no real answers in the war on terror. She said the decision is "stupid" and that Netanyahu and his ministers know it.
"Destroying homes is ineffective in preventing terror, it is unjust, unethical, not smart, and does not pass the test of international law," Gal-On said.
"It is cruel collective punishment for the purpose of internal public diplomacy that is intended to silence protest. It will only increase hatred for Israel among innocent people," she added.
