November 10, 2014 14:16

Knesset Interior Committee chairwoman Miri Regev (Likud) called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to continue to "personally handle" the issue of terrorism, after a Palestinian terrorist stabbed an Israeli soldier in Tel Aviv on Monday.

"The government has to decide on a plan of action that will restore the sense of personal security to the citizens of Israel," she said, calling on the public to be alert in light of recent events that have rattled the country. Security forces and police must increase their presence throughout the entire country, she urged, and ensure terrorists receive "severe" punishment.

"We must eradicate terror," the Likud MK said, "and at the same time send a clear message" that no one is above the rule of law.
