Broad support in Knesset for bill to deport terrorists’ families to Gaza

MKs from all coalition parties and some in the opposition signed a bill to deport terrorists’ family members, which Knesset House Committee David Bitan (Likud) submitted Wednesday.

The idea for the bill came from Transportation and Intelligence Minister Yisrael Katz, after Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit said last week that expelling Palestinian terrorists’ families from the West Bank to Gaza violates Israeli and international law and could play into the hands of those seeking to have Israel tried for war crimes in the International Criminal Court.
