Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has accepted proposals by the ministers for public security and justice, who called for far-right groups to be labeled as terrorist organizations.

The recommendations included the immediate release of administrative arrest warrants for suspects, increasing the number of restraining orders placed on suspects, and trying them in military courts.

The recommendations were made after Public Security Minister Yitzhak Ahronovitch and Justicer Minister Yaakov Ne'eman met with the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), police, prosecutors, and the army. The ministers also called for greater resources to be made available for investigations.

Netanyahu rejected the call to categorize far-right elements as terrorist organizations.
