Opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) told US Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday that the current security situation between the Israelis and Palestinians "cannot continue."

During a meeting in Rome, Herzog pointed toward a two-state solution, saying "a separation policy is the only way to move things in the region."

He added that a joint regional security council including Egypt, Jordan, Israel and other countries should be formed to confront the issue of radical Islamic terror and promote confidence building measures in the Middle East.

"Israelis are being murdered in the streets and the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement is gaining focus around the world," Herzog said. "Israel cannot wait for lengthy diplomatic negotiations."

Kerry in turn expressed interest in such an initiative.
