Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday accepted the recommendations of Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch and Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman for dealing with disturbances in Judea and Samaria.
The ministers formulated the recommendations after meeting with ISA, IDF, Israel Police and State Attorney's Office teams, which were:
The immediate issuing of administrative detention orders against rioters; Immediately increasing the number of those barred from various areas; Trying rioters in military courts; Giving IDF soldiers the authority to detain people; and Increasing both the number of special ISA, Israel Police, IDF and State Attorney's Office investigation teams and the resources for investigations. However, Netanyahu rejected the recommendation that 'rioters' be classified as terrorists.
