An Israeli politician has come under fire for calling for 'doomsday' weapons to be used on Gaza.

Tally Gotliv posted on X, formally known as Twitter, about her horror of Hamas' attack on civilians in Israel over the weekend.

Hundreds were killed after militants launched a coordinated assault on the country and took more than 100 people hostage.

It was the deadliest attack on Israel in decades.

While Israel has now retaliated with a series of airstrikes that have also killed hundreds in Gaza, Gotliv believes the defence force needs to up the ante.

She wrote: "Only an explosion that shakes the Middle East will restore this country's dignity, strength and security!

"It's time to kiss doomsday. Shooting powerful missiles without limit. Not flattening a neighborhood. Crushing and flattening Gaza. Otherwise we did nothing."

That message has been flagged by X for violating their policies on violent speech.

In another post, she said: "Jericho Missile! Jericho Missile! Strategic alert. before considering the introduction of forces. Doomsday weapon! This is my opinion. May God preserve all our strength."

Gotliv also urged Israel to 'do everything and use Doomsday weapons fearlessly against our enemies'.

The Jericho I is an operational short-range ballistic missile system that was first publicly identified in the 1970s.

It had a range of 500 kilometres and was intended to carry a nuclear warhead.

Gotliv's comments have unsurprisingly caused a lot of backlash on social media, with many horrified that someone would call for a nuclear approach to the conflict.

One wrote: "Israeli politician Tally Gotliv, from Netanyahu's party, just called for the use of a nuclear bomb on Gaza. This is a sickness."

Another person called her a 'depicable human being' while a third said: "That would be very sickening if they go ahead with it."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has warned that the next few days will 'echo for generations'.

"The atrocities committed by Hamas have not been seen since ISIS atrocities," he said.

"Bound children executed along with their families. Young men and women shot in the back, executed. Other horrors I won't describe here.

"We have always known who Hamas is. Now the entire world knows. Hamas is ISIS. And we will defeat it just like the enlightened world defeated ISIS. This vile enemy wanted war and it will get war."

According to the Daily Mail, Netanyahu promised Israel would 'change the Middle East' once this latest conflict is over.

He reportedly told officials meeting in Jerusalem: "What Hamas will experience will be difficult and terrible.

"This is only the beginning... we are all with you and we will defeat them with force, enormous force."
