Pro-settler lobby calls for IDF action due to bus bombing

Monday’s bombing of a Jerusalem bus must be the catalyst for an IDF operation, the heads of the Knesset’s Land of Israel lobby, MKs Bezalel Smotrich and Yoav Kisch said Tuesday.

Smotrich (Bayit Yehudi) said Israel needed to repeat 2002’s Operation Defensive Shield, in which the IDF took back security control of West Bank cities relinquished in the Oslo diplomatic process. He noted reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering removing the IDF from those cities again.
