Billionaire Elon Musk and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Kfar Aza kibbutz : American billionaire Elon Musk reached Israel on the fourth day (27 November) of the ceasefire. Here he met Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. During a live chat with Netanyahu on X, Musk said that there is no other way except the elimination of Hamas.

Elon Musk and Benjamin Netanyahu visited Kfar Aza Kibbutz, where Hamas militants launched a deadly attack on October 7 that triggered the war. According to a video released by Netanyahu’s office, Musk was wearing a protective uniform and was surrounded by a group of security personnel. Musk and the prime minister visited the homes of some of the victims, including the family of Abigail Aden, a 4-year-old girl with dual Israeli and US citizenship who was taken hostage by Hamas after her parents were killed. He was released on Sunday in the latest round of exchanges in Gaza during a ceasefire that expired on Monday.
Scenes of massacre disturbing: Musk
“It was disturbing to see the scene of carnage,” Musk later said in an X-Space conversation with Netanyahu. Musk said he was troubled by videos and pictures the prime minister showed him of killings of civilians, including children. Elon Musk is also scheduled to meet Israeli President Isaac Herzog and former Defense Minister Benny Gantz.
Government spokesman Elon Levy declined to say whether Musk was invited. Israeli Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi posted on Monday about the agreement his ministry had signed with Musk’s Starlink satellite internet company.
X accused of not removing anti-Semitic messages
“Thanks to this important agreement, Starlink satellite units can only be operated in Israel, including the Gaza Strip, with the approval of the Israeli Ministry of Communications,” Shlomi Karhi said in the post, without sharing further details.
Since purchasing Twitter last year, Musk has faced allegations from the prominent Jewish civil rights organization Anti-Defamation League and others for not removing anti-Semitic messages on the platform. Social media users have raised many questions on him regarding this.
