An Israeli minister has warned Palestinians that if they do not stop protesting against the occupation’s latest measures in Al-Aqsa Mosque there will be a mass expulsion and ethnic cleansing campaign against them, 972mag has reported.

In a posted on Facebook, Regional Cooperation Minister Tzachi Hanegbi wrote: “Remember ’48… Remember ’67”, in reference to the Nakba, the forced expulsion of Palestinians in 1948 and the creation of the State of Israel, and the Naksa, Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. “This is how a ‘Nakba’ begins.”

“You’ve already paid that crazy price twice for your leaders. Don’t try us again because the result won’t be any different. You’ve been warned!” he concluded.
