Otzma Yehudit Party chief MK Itamar Ben-Gvir said in response Sunday night: "Jewish blood is not cheap! Terror attack after terror attack - you can't stand it already, all the suffering and destruction. We said and we warned that a government which is dependent on the Islamic Movement will, in the end, seriously harm the country's security - and that is what is happening."
