The terrorist who killed Yosef, Chaya and Elad Salomon in Halamish last Shabbat “should simply never smile again,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday, advocating the death penalty in this case.

“It is time for the death penalty for terrorists,” Netanyahu said during a shiva call he and his wife, Sara, made to the Solomon home in El’ad.

Netanyahu said the death penalty was anchored in law, but that a ruling on this matter needs the consent of judges trying the case, and they want to know the government’s position.

“My position as the prime minister is that in this case, with such a lowly murderer, he has to be taken out to die. He should simply never smile again,” he said.

The terrorist, Omar al-Abed al-Jalil, 19, from Kobar, was “neutralized” when shot in the stomach by a soldier from the IDF’s Oketz canine unit, on leave at the time – a neighbor of the Solomons in Halamish – who ran to the home when he heard the screams.
