Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat called for the arrest of those guilty of "incitement," which he blamed for the Palestinian stabbing attack that left two Israelis dead and three others wounded in the Old City on Saturday.

Barkat said that the government needed to take "drastic" measures, though he would not specify the nature of those measures.

The mayor said that the Palestinian Authority was responsible for inciting "lone wolf" attackers by failing to condemn other terrorist atrocities like Thursday's fatal shooting of a Jewish couple near the West Bank settlement of Itamar.

Barkat made the remarks in an interview with Channel 2 just moments after arriving at the scene of Saturday's stabbings.
