Mossi Raz, a lawmaker from the left-wing Meretz party, accused Ben Gvir of “trying to set the area ablaze and stir up a war, just as he did in May” 2021.

On that date, the Israeli police charged the ultra-nationalist politician with stoking violence by putting a table under an awning in that neighborhood, which increased protests on the Palestinian territories, leading to Tel Aviv’s invasion of the Gaza Strip.

The lawmaker’s new statement sparked riots in the area, resulting in several injuries.

The Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas), which controls the Gaza Strip, condemned the threats from the National Religious Party leader and warned on an escalation.
