Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed his justice minister, Ayelet Shaked, to form a committee whose mandate will be to expedite legal processes permitting authorities to raze the homes of Palestinians who perpetrate acts of violence against Israelis, it was announced late Monday night.

The decision was made at the conclusion of an emergency cabinet meeting whose aim was to discuss the government's response to the escalating riots in Jerusalem and the Palestinian territories.
