The Knesset will hold an emergency meeting on Monday, during its recess, to discuss the escalation of violence in Jerusalem.

Yesh Atid initiated the discussion, with backing from Zionist Union, Meretz and the Joint List.

“Rock-throwing and Molotov cocktails have become routine and this situation cannot continue anymore. We must bring security back to the residents,” Yesh Atid’s spokeswoman said. “The State of Israel must use any means necessary to fight terrorism.”

A Joint List spokesman said the party’s MKs plan to speak out against “the escalation on the part of security forces and the government, the harm to the [al-Aksa] mosque and intrusions by settlers.”

Monday’s meeting will also address the ongoing strike in Christian schools, whose representatives claim that they receive less funding than other schools.
