Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that a ministerial committee on legislation had passed a law introducing the death penalty for those convicted of terrorism.
“Today in the Ministerial Commission on Legislation, together with Minister Ben Gvir, we passed a law on the death penalty for terrorists,” Netanyahu wrote on his social media page.
The head of the Israeli government promised that he would continue to act in the field of security to create a “deterrent factor against terrorists and guarantee the security” of the country. The document states that the death penalty threatens anyone who “intentionally or through indifference causes the death of an Israeli citizen, when the act is committed for racist motives or hatred of a certain public… and with the aim of harm the State of Israel and the revival of the Jewish people in their homeland.”
Meanwhile, the UN demands that Iran abandon the practice of the death penalty. The call came after Iranian authorities announced their intention to execute two participants in the protests, while discussions continue in Russia on the introduction of the death penalty. Statements about the impossibility of such a punishment in the country within the framework of the Basic Law of the State Duma were called far from the truth. As reported by the Public News Service, Konstantin Zatulin, First Deputy Speaker of the Lower House for CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots, insists on this point.
