An Israeli lawmaker has called on her country’s military to use nuclear weapons in response to Hamas terror attacks that killed 1,200 Israelis.
Revital “Tally” Gotliv, a member of the right-wing Likud party in the Knesset, has repeatedly called on her country on her social media accounts to wipe Gaza off the map.
Israel’s military arsenal has expanded, and although the country is believed to have had a significant number of nuclear weapons since the 1960s, the small country, located in a hostile area, has never officially confirmed its nuclear power.
Since Saturday, when Iranian-backed Hamas terrorists brutally attacked Israeli towns and cities in the south, Israel has declared war on Palestinian terrorists and launched a counteroffensive that Israeli leaders say will involve significant destruction of Gaza to take.
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 warning. before considering the introduction of armed forces. Doomsday weapon! This is my opinion. May God preserve all our strength.”
The message was written and posted in Hebrew and has been translated.

Jericho missiles are a generic name for a family of ballistic missiles first developed by Israel in the 1960s.
She encouraged her country’s military to “shell mercilessly at Gaza!”
“Only an explosion that rocks the Middle East will restore the dignity, strength and security of this country,” he wrote. “I urge you to do everything you can and use Doomsday weapons fearlessly against our enemies.”
Israel, she declared, “must use everything in its arsenal.”
She stressed that the Israeli government must respond quickly as Hamas is currently laughing at its country. She wrote that simply “flattening” a neighborhood in Gaza would not be enough. The government must ‘crush’ all of Gaza.
Following the terror attacks, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu immediately declared a state of war and has since promised “mighty revenge” against the Israeli attackers, which will end in victory for his country.
The Israeli army began bombing key Hamas locations in the Gaza Strip and issued warnings to civilians in certain regions before a wave of retaliatory attacks began on Monday morning.
Early Wednesday morning, a new wave of attacks on Gaza began.
Yoav Gallant, Israel’s defense minister, said he has lifted “all restrictions” on troops in their fight against Hamas.
Hamas wanted change and will get it. What was in Gaza will be no more,” he said, speaking to soldiers at the Gaza fence.
‘We started the offensive from the air, later we will also come from the ground. We’ve been controlling the area since day two and are on the offensive. It will only intensify.”
Gallant promised to show no mercy to the terrorists.
“Whoever comes to behead and murder women and Holocaust survivors – we will eliminate him at the height of our power and without compromise.”

Speaking publicly on Tuesday about the devastating Hamas attacks that have put Israel back at war with its hostile neighbor, President Joe Biden said: “Let me say again: any country, any organization, anyone who thinks they can take advantage get out of the situation, I have one. word: don’t do it.’
He called the Oct. 7 atrocity “unadulterated evil” and said his administration is reviewing intelligence to see if Iran or its allies helped. The White House said it cannot currently confirm whether Iran helped with the attack.
Hamas continued to fire rockets into Israel from Gaza on Tuesday, as Israel prepares a possible ground invasion in response to the attacks.
