Deputy Defense Minister Eli Ben-Dahan (Bayit Yehudi), who grew up in the southern city of Beersheba, called on the international community to stop the Palestinian Authority's incitement to terrorism following Sunday night's terrorist attack at the city's central bus station.

"The international community must urgently act to curb the incitement and the encouraging of terrorism by the leaders of the Palestinian Authority, and not to plummet into initiatives such as internationalizing Temple Mount, which only encourage terrorism," said Ben-Dahan, referring to recent suggestions to place the site under international supervision.

Speaking of the attack in Beersheba, the deputy minister added that "unfortunately, the terrorists don't stop. This is a stepping up from knife attacks to shooting."

"I call again on the government to expel the families of terrorists. This is the only step that will deter them from carrying out the next terrorist attack," he said.
