Head of the opposition Isaac Herzog said on Thursday that the West Bank should be sealed until the wave of violence that Israel is currently facing subsides. 

"We are facing a large and dangerous wave of terror and we will know how to overcome it," Herzog wrote on Twitter. 

"Tensions should be decreased by taking the following steps immediately: a closure should be imposed on Judea and Samaria until the rage passes in order to prevent friction and potential acts of terror; visits to the Temple Mount should be decreased to the minimum level especially visits by extremist politicians other interested parties," Herzog offered.
