Officials at the Prime Minister's Office are mulling the option of releasing shocking photographs of the terror attack aftermath in Itamar to the foreign media.

 

The perpetrators of the massacre in the West Bank community entered a family home late Friday and slit the throats of three children and their parents while they were sleeping.

The images in questions are ones not usually published in Israel following terror attacks. Should officials decide to go ahead with the move, Israel's Government Press Office will hand over the photographs to global media outlets.

 

According to sources familiar with the discussions, the purpose of publishing such photos would be to shock the world and prompt condemnation of the Palestinian Authority over its responsibility for incitement against Israel.

 

Bibi: Why are Israel critics silent? 

In a televised speech Saturday evening, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered his condolences and encouragement to relatives of the victims and to Judea and Samaria settlers.

 

"Don't let your spirits drop," the prime minister said, while stressing that security forces will make every effort to nab the perpetrators of the attack.

 

Netanyahu also demanded that the international community condemn the brutal killing.

 

"I noticed that some of the states that rushed to the Security Council to condemn Israel, the Jewish State, for planning to build a home somewhere, are slow in issuing a harsh condemnation over the murder of Jewish babies," he said.

 

"There' is no justification whatsoever, no excuse and no forgiveness for the murder of babies," the PM said.
