Meretz Head: IDF Operation is Only to Punish the PA


MK Zehava Galon, head of the leftist Meretz party, claimed on Wednesday that the IDF’s Operation Brother’s Keeper, launched after three teenagers were kidnapped by terrorists, is no longer effective.

Galon claimed that the operation has strayed away from its original purpose and now is used by Israel solely to punish the Palestinian Authority.
