Israeli National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir stated that the parliament will discuss the draft law providing for “death penalty for Palestinian detainees” on Monday.
According to the news of the Israeli newspaper Maariv, far-right Minister Ben-Gvir said, “The Parliament will discuss the preparations for the first vote of the bill that provides for the death penalty for Palestinian prisoners on Monday.”
Ben-Gvir stated that the party that proposed the bill on the execution of Palestinian prisoners was the Jewish Power Party, which he leads, and that they expect all MPs in the parliament to support it.
IT WAS ALSO DISCUSSED IN MARCH
In March, the Israeli parliament approved the bill submitted by Ben-Gvir in the preliminary session, which allows the death penalty to be imposed on Palestinian prisoners found guilty of killing Israelis. The bill, supported by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, caused a reaction from the Palestinians.
In order for the bill to come into force, it must be put to vote in 3 more sessions after the preliminary session.
THE DEATH PENALTY WAS IMPLEMENTED ONCE IN ISRAEL
There is no death penalty in civilian courts in Israel. In military courts, this punishment can be given in extremely exceptional cases. This power has been used only once in Israeli history, against a former Nazi criminal, in a 1962 case. (AA)
