Following the stone throwing attack that moderately injured a toddler on Thursday evening, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat called for increasing criminal sanctions on stone-throwers.

Barkat also visited the injured toddler in hospital and spoke with the victim's family.

"It must be made clear to everyone that a stone is a weapon for all intents and purposes and it must be viewed this way," Barkat said Thursday.
