What did you miss?
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced a number of measures in response to the two attacks in Jerusalem in two days. He did so after an emergency session of the Israeli security cabinet that met last night.
Netanyahu said he would take “strong, swift and precise measures”. He wants to punish the perpetrators and the people around them more harshly by immediately sealing their houses and then demolishing them.
Netanyahu also wants to arm more civilians. This requires a change in the law to make it easier to give certain people a gun permit.
