MK Moti Yogev (Jewish Home), who initiated the bill to allow the expulsion of terrorist families, responded to the opinion published by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit in which he opposes the enactment of the law, which has already been approved by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation.

"The eradication of deterrence by legal means may protect the State of Israel on the international level, but it places the lives of its citizens and soldiers at risk," Yogev said.

He also referred to the comments made by Prime Minister and Minister of Defense Binyamin Netanyahu at the Likud meeting, which expressed support for the bill approved last night by the ministerial committee.

"I welcome the prime minister's support for the law that Minister Bennett and myself are promoting, to expel the families of terrorists, and this is a deterrent law that conveys the message that Jewish blood is not worthless," added Yogev.

Earlier, the Ministry of Justice published a statement stating that "the position of the Attorney General regarding the bill, as presented to the ministers, is that the authority now proposed for enactment severely infringes upon the liberty and property of family members who are intended for deportation, for the act of another family member, More dangerous than themselves. "

The Justice Ministry added that the proposal is expected to create difficulties on the international level.
