Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will convene an emergency meeting after the end of the Rosh Hashana holiday on Tuesday evening to discuss the challenge of ending the acts of rioters who throw stones and firebombs in Jerusalem and area.

Defense Miniser Moshe Ya'alon, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked, Transportation Minister Israel Katz, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, members of the State Attorney's office, and other security officials are expected to take part in the meeting. 

On Sunday night a man died after his car lost control in Jerusalem after what police say may have been a stone-throwing attack. In a separate event on Monday morning in the capital, a police officer was lightly injured when rioters pelted him with stones on the Temple Mount.
