ALBAWABA -  Hardline Israeli Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gavir said any Palestinian who carries out attacks against Israel should face execution, using the electric chair. 

"Anyone who murders, harms and slaughters civilians should be sent to the electric chair," Ben-Gvir told his far-right Jewish Strength Party in a meeting, as cited by Israeli Channel 13 and quoted by Anadolu.

The minister is pushing for a death penalty bill in Israel's parliament, known as the Knesset, against Palestinians involved in carrying out attacks against Israelis.
