Yisrael Beiteinu Chairman Avigdor Liberman reiterated his support for handing down the death penalty to terrorists, in an elections video released on Twitter on Wednesday.
Viewers are asked to look at Arafat Irfaiya, the alleged killer of-19-year-old Ori Ansbacher
, and politicians who previously voted against a law demanding terrorists be handed a death sentence.
They include New Right leaders Naftali Bennett and Ayelet Shaked as well as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"Yisrael Beiteniu is the only party that really promotes a law [for] the death penalty [handed to] terrorists," he wrote alongside the video.
Israel does not have the death penalty in its legal code. The only person to be executed by an Israeli court was convicted Nazi war criminal, Adolf Eichmann, in 1962.
