After two separate attacks by Palestinians in Jerusalem over the previous two days, Israel’s prime minister promised a “strong” and “rapid” response.
The assaults happened after a nine-person death toll from an Israeli army incursion in the occupied West Bank.
Benjamin Netanyahu declared he will seek more steps to “fight terror” during a security cabinet meeting.
The Israeli army recently announced that it would increase the number of troops in the occupied West Bank.
His remarks came after Israeli police said that a Palestinian child, 13, was responsible for a shooting that occurred in Jerusalem’s Silwan neighborhood on Saturday and gravely injured an Israeli parent and son.
According to a prior statement from an Israeli police force official, the attacker assaulted five people as they were about to pray, leaving two of them in a “serious condition.”
