King is known for his stubborn support for settlements and the expulsion of Palestinians from their homes (social media)

Israeli Deputy Mayor in Jerusalem Aryeh King called on Friday for Palestinian prisoners from the Gaza Strip to be buried alive, after photos of the occupation army arresting dozens of displaced people in the northern Gaza Strip and stripping them naked except for their underwear.

King described the Palestinian prisoners as "Nazis," saying that burying them alive is the only way to deal with them, because they are "nothing but a bunch of ants."

One platform goer responded that he would be held accountable for the remarks at the International Criminal Court, but King mocked him, asking why he should be held accountable if he called for the killing of "Nazis."

The Israeli media quoted on Thursday, the Israeli army pictures of the arrest of dozens of Palestinians from shelters in the northern Gaza Strip, after forcing them to take off their homes completely except from their underpants, under the pretext of making sure that they do not carry weapons, and that some of them are fighters for the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas).

The photos showed the Israeli army gathering the semi-naked prisoners in sandy ground in front of a large pit, raising fears that the occupation was carrying out a mass execution.

In other photos, it appeared that the occupation army gathered the semi-naked prisoners in a military transport vehicle and took them to an unknown location.

Since the beginning of the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip on October 7, Israeli officials have made extreme statements to legitimize the killing of civilians in the besieged enclave.

Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Galant has said they are "fighting animals in the form of humans" in Gaza, Israeli Heritage Minister Amichai Eliyahu has considered one of the options for Tel Aviv to "drop a nuclear bomb" on Gaza, and former Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett asserted that they are fighting "Nazis."

King is known for his stubborn support for settlement in East Jerusalem and the expulsion of Palestinian residents from their homes.
