Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to "stop lying, and stop inciting."
Speaking during a special Knesset session in memory of assassinated minister Rehavam Zeevi, the premier called on the Palestinians to cease "turning murderers into heroes."
"We are focused on our mission, to fight the inciters and the murderers," the prime minister said. "The actions that are taken will make the message clear to the other side that terrorism doesn't pay."
"Israel is strong, and it will be here forever, whether our enemies like it or not," Netanyahu said.
