Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took aim at his Canadian counterpart on social media this evening.
Justin Trudeau said earlier today that the world is witnessing the killing of women, children and babies in the Gaza Strip, and that it must stop.
He said a human tragedy is unfolding in Gaza and Israel must exercise maximum restraint to protect civilian life.
Netanyahu tagged Trudeau in a rare rebuke this evening on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
