After a discussion between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan and Israel Police Acting Commissioner Motti Cohen, the three men agreed Sunday to allocate additional forces to “continue the struggle against violence” in the Arab sector, according to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office.
“Prime Minister Netanyahu condemns the acts of murder and violence in the Arab sector,” the PMO said.
The prime minister called on the Arab sector leadership to “act responsibly and cooperate with the authorities in order to bring about a substantive change in the situation.”
Netanyahu also called on the public to “refrain from violence of any kind in the context of protest action,” according to the PMO.
“All of us must act responsibly and cooperate in order to fight violence,” the prime minister said.
