    The Chief Rabbi of the West Bank settlement of Kiryat Arba has issued a ruling that would allow killing civilians in times of war.



    Raabi Dov Lior made the comment in a verdict, a copy of which has also been sent to Israeli Minister of Military Affairs Moshe Ya'alon.

    In the verdict, the rabbi claimed that in times of war, it is permissible to fiercely attack what he described as the enemy population, even if it means to hurt and take innocent lives.

    In the case of Israeli massacre in Gaza, the verdict reads that the army is allowed to instruct even the destruction of the whole area to avoid suffering of the Israeli people.
