In a hateful post on X, the deputy mayor of occupied al-Quds, Aryeh Yitzhak King called to bury alive hundreds of Palestinian civilians imprisoned by “Israel” since October 7.
King has deleted the original post on X but a screenshot of the post remains online.
His post specifically referenced recent footage released by the IOF stripping Palestinians to their underwear, as King attempted to justify the act by saying “Muslim Nazis” in Gaza were being eliminated.
It is believed that the Palestinian men were detained in Beit Lahia, north of Gaza. “Israel” claims they are members of the Palestinian resistance movement Hamas.

“If it were up to me, I would have dispatched D-9 bulldozers and put them behind the mounds of dirt and would have given the order to cover all these hundreds of ants, while they’re still alive,” King said in his deleted post.
The Israeli occupation conducted an abduction campaign for #Palestinian men in #UN shelters, the men were stripped in the streets in the cold, and these men were taken to unknown locations.

“They aren’t human beings and not human animals. They’re subhuman and that’s how they should be treated,” he added, saying: “Eradicate the memory of Amalek, and never forget.”
Back in November, Netanyahu said “Israel” was “committed to completely eliminating this evil from the world. You must remember what Amalek has done to you, says our Holy Bible. And we do remember”.
“Amalek” refers to the arch-foe of Israelites in ancient times, a term also previously used by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Today, Palestinian media reported, citing local sources, wide-scale raids carried out by the Israeli occupation forces across the cities and refugee camps of the occupied West Bank.
Palestinian media reported that Israeli forces arrested Palestinian youth Youssef al-Khatib, during an incursion into the city of Areeha in the West Bank. It’s noteworthy that al-Khatib had been released as part of the recent prisoner exchange deal between the Palestinian Resistance and the Israeli occupation that took place during the seven-day truce.

Later, the media confirmed the release of al-Khatib, who was physically assaulted by the occupation forces.
Israeli occupation forces raided Nablus from the al-Tur neighborhood and the al-Yasmeena neighborhood in the old town of Nablus as well as the town of Qabalan to its south and arrested Mohammad Talal, from the town of Yatma south of Nablus, after storming and searching his house.
