US says Israel minister’s Gaza nuclear comment was wholly unacceptable

WASHINGTON, Nov 6 (Reuters) – The United States on Monday condemned as “wholly unacceptable” comments by a junior member of the Israeli cabinet who appeared to voice openness to the idea of Israel carrying out a nuclear strike on Gaza.
“We continue to believe that it is important for all sides of this conflict to refrain from hateful rhetoric,” deputy State Department spokesperson Vedant Patel told a briefing.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday disciplined the cabinet member in question.
