Herzog urges ‘aggressive war’ on terrorism

Opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) writes on Facebook that the government should “stop stuttering and start acting.”

Herzog says he will support the government from the benches of the opposition if it imposes a closure on Palestinian neighborhoods and “locations of friction” in Jerusalem, and if it “widely deploys military and police forces and recruits reserve soldiers to the extent necessary.”

The leader of the Labor party calls for “an aggressive war militarily, legally and via intelligence against Islamic websites and web incitement and temporary closure of the Temple Mount to all visitors.”

“We must think ahead of the day after, on regional and diplomatic steps that will restore calm,” he writes.
