Friday, April 21, 2017

Opposition leader and Zionist Union chairman MK Yitzhak Herzog on Friday responded to MK Erel Margalit (Zionist Union), who expressed his support for the terrorists who are imprisoned in Israel and who this week launched a hunger strike led by archterrorist Marwan Barghouti.

"The Zionist left wants peace but also persecutes terrorists.

I strongly condemn any support for the striking prisoners, most of whom have Israeli blood on their hands and expect MK Margalit to clarify his words," said Herzog.
