A lawmaker in Israel has called for her nation’s military to use nuclear weapons to attack Hamas in response to the terror attacks that have left 1,200 Israelis dead.

Revital ‘Tally’ Gotliv, a member of the right-wing Likud party in the Knesset has called multiple times on her social media accounts for her country to wipe Gaza off the map.

In one tweet, Gotliv, who has previously been extremely critical of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu despite their shared party membership, wrote: “Jericho Missile! Jericho Missile! Strategic alert. before considering the introduction of forces. Doomsday weapon! This is my opinion. May God preserve all our strength.”

Jericho missiles are a general name given to a family of ballistic missiles that were first developed by Israel in the 1960s.

She encouraged her country’s army to “shell Gaza mercilessly!”

Nuclear weapon against Hamas will “shake the Middle East”

“Only an explosion that shakes the Middle East will restore this country’s dignity, strength and security,” wrote. “I urge you to do everything and use Doomsday weapons fearlessly against our enemies.”

Israel, she declared, “must use everything in its arsenal.”

Israel’s military arsenal is extensive, and though it is believed the country has possessed a significant number of nuclear weapons since the 1960s, the small country situated in a hostile area has never officially confirmed its nuclear power.

Following the terror attacks, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately declared a state of war and has since promised “mighty vengeance” on Israel’s attackers that will end in victory for his country.

Israel strikes Hamas sites and prepares for ground invasion of Gaza

Israeli Defense Forces have begun bombarding key Hamas sites in the Gaza Strip and issued warnings to civilians in certain regions before a wave of retaliatory attacks began Monday morning.

Early Wednesday morning, another wave of attacks against Gaza began.

Yoav Gallant, the Israeli defense minister, said he has “released all restraints” on the troops in their fight against Hamas.

“Hamas wanted a change and it will get one. What was in Gaza will no longer be,” he said, speaking to soldiers near the Gaza fence.

“We started the offensive from the air, later on we will also come from the ground. We’ve been controlling the area since Day Two and we are on the offensive. It will only intensify.”

The Israeli military says hundreds of thousands of troops are near the Gaza border “ready to execute the mission we have been given”.

Israel is expected to launch a ground offensive on the Gaza Strip soon – it says the mission is to “make sure Hamas won’t have any military capabilities”.
