Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon condemned Jewish terror on Monday after a slew of attacks this week carried out by Jewish nationals.

"We intend to fight Jewish terror with determination and without compromise," said Ya'alon in a statement.

"This is a struggle over the character of the state of Israel and we have no intention of giving up this fight."

He continued by stating he intended to push for administrative detention of Jewish terrorists, in order to send a message to the citizens of Israel.

"This method will be one of steps taken to strike Jewish terrorism in order to bring them to justice and to protect the democracy of Israel and its citizens."
