The Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid reported yesterday Thursday at autistic his daughter during the speech he addressed to his 77th General Assembly United Nations Organization in New York.
“I have a child with special needs. Her name is Yaeli. She is autistic. Does not speaksaid Mr. Lapid.
He mentioned her to hurt him 11 day war between his country’s armed forces and Palestinian armed organizations in the Gaza Strip in May 2021, when rockets were fired at Israeli territory from the enclave ruled by Hamas.
Israel engaged in 11-day blitzkrieg with Hamas and other Palestinian armed groups that month. From May 10 to 21, 260 Palestinians were killed in Israeli strikes in the Gaza Strip, including militants, according to local authorities, while in Israel, rocket fire from Gaza killed 13 people, including a soldier, at the police and the army.
Prime Minister Lapid recalled a rocket attack on Tel Aviv during which he had to take his daughter to a shelter. “I had to wake her up at three in the morning so we could run to the shelter, explosions could be heard above our house,” he said.
“Everyone who preaches to us about the importance of peace they are welcome to try rushing to the shelter at 3am with a non-talking child. To explain to him, without words, in sign language, why some are trying to kill him”.
He added that he has been repeatedly asked why Israel does not lift the blockade it has imposed on the Gaza Strip for over fifteen years. “We are willing to do it—tomorrow morning. And more than that,” he said. Israel is willing to contribute to building a better life for Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, a densely populated enclave of 2.3 million people, he assured, but “on one condition: stop firing rockets and missiles at our children.”
