Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat pledged on Friday that Palestinians rioting in the capital "will pay a dear price" for their actions.

The mayor spoke to the Israeli press from the entrance to the Palestinian neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, which moments earlier was the scene of a firebomb attack that left four Border Police officers hurt.

"The message I have to those causing the disorder is that they are endangering their own lives," the mayor said. "We will prosecute them, and they will pay dearly."

Barkat called on "Arab community leaders" in east Jerusalem, including community councilors, mukhtars, and others "to take responsibility for their youngsters and restore quiet to Jerusalem."
