Opposition leader Herzog: The government must restore security

Government must stop stammering and take immediate action to restore security, said opposition Zionist Union leader Yitzhak Herzog Tuesday, ahead of the cabinet security meeting called to approve stronger measures against the rising wave of terror. He proposed imposing a lockdown on Palestinian neighborhoods and flashpoints in Jerusalem, the large-scale deployment of soldiers and police; mobilizing army reserves, combating the incitement carried on the Internet, and the temporary closure of Temple Mount to all visitors. Herzog also advised the government to “think about regional and diplomatic steps for de-escalating the violence.”
