palestinian-rock-throwerAgainst the backdrop of growing violence in Yerushalayim in recent weeks, the Cabinet of Israel approved an amendment today that authorizes courts to sentence rock-throwers to up to 20 years in prison.

Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu, who has held a number of emergency meetings on the escalation in violence in the capital, has instructed ministers to push legislation against rock-throwers.

“Israel is taking aggressive action against terrorists, against rock throwing, against firebombs, and against fireworks. … We will legislate even more aggressive laws on this issue in order to restore calm and security to all parts of Jerusalem,” Netanyahu said at his weekly cabinet meeting today.
