March 9, 2016 03:08

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held emergency consultations with his defense chiefs late Tuesday following the wave of terrorist attacks that gripped central Israel just hours earlier.

The meeting was attended by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Police Commissioner Roni Alsheich, the coordinator of government activities in the territories Yoav Mordechai, and representatives from the IDF and the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet).

The meeting ended with the participants resolving to take a number of immediate steps aimed at stemming the tide of Palestinian violence, including: sealing the gaps in the fence which runs through the Jerusalem area; building a fence in the Tarkumiya region; advancing legislation that would levy penalties for those who aid and abet illegal aliens and labor migrants; shutting down media outlets that propagate incitement; and revoking work permits.
