Netanyahu scolds rioting Arabs following shooting death of Kafr Kana youth

Israel is a state of law and it will not tolerate rioting and unrest, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement on Saturday, hours after disturbances broke out in Kafr Kana in reaction to the police shooting of an Israeli Arab youth.
“We will act against those who throw stones, block roadways, and call for the establishment of a Palestinian state instead of Israel,” the premier said.
“Whoever doesn’t respect Israeli law will be punished to the fullest extent,” Netanyahu said.
The prime minister said he would instruct the interior minister to “examine revoking citizenship from those who call for the destruction of the State of Israel.”
