Barkat after Jerusalem attack: Tougher sanctions needed for stone throwers

Following the stone throwing attack that moderately injured a toddler on Thursday evening, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat called for increasing criminal sanctions on stone-throwers.
Barkat also visited the injured toddler in hospital and spoke with the victim's family.
"It must be made clear to everyone that a stone is a weapon for all intents and purposes and it must be viewed this way," Barkat said Thursday.
