A Florida dentist was fired after he was caught on video tearing down posters of hostages who were taken by Hamas fighters during the Palestinian militant group’s deadly terrorist attacks on Israel earlier this month.

Dr. Ahmed ElKoussa is now getting death threats for his actions, his lawyer told Insider on Thursday.

“He acted on his best judgment at the time and removed them without any ill intention for the Jewish community,” said ElKoussa’s lawyer, Hassan Shibly, the founder and lead attorney of Muslim Legal, adding that his client has been “slaughtered online and paid a big price without even being given a chance to clarify.”
