MK Omer Bar-Lev (Zionist Union) called on Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee chairman Tzachi Hanegbi to call an emergency meeting on the escalation.

“From Molotov cocktails and rock-throwing to stoning a bus in Jaffa and stabbings in Jerusalem, Kiryat Gat and Petah Tikva of soldiers and civilians, the pace of security events is dizzying and raises concerns that it is not a series of lone events. Whether we call it an escalation or the third Intifada, it is clear that the public’s sense of security has crumbled,” Bar-Lev wrote.

The MK added that it is important for the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee be updated by security officials in order to oversee and follow what is happening, and make sure the right things are being done to bring calm.
