Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat says the government should take “drastic measures” to combat Palestinian terrorism.
He is interviewed at the scene of a terror attack in Armon Hanatziv, where a stabber and gunman raid a bus in a coordinated attack, and is visibly angry.
Inflammatory incitement & lies from mosques & Palestinian leaders is resulting in murder & terror in the streets of Jerusalem #ThisMustStop

“We will not return to normalcy after this,” he says. What is needed “are drastic steps that will change reality. More can be done, drastic steps in coordination with the Shin Bet [security service] and the police. I will leave it to them to say what the steps will be,” he says.
Barkat says he will welcome even a closure of Jerusalem if necessary.
