Palestinians inciting Temple Mount violence, Netanyahu tells UN’s Ban

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon about continuing violence on the Temple Mount.

Israel is working to end the violence, the prime minister says. “Unlike the Palestinian side’s incitement, Israel is taking pains to preserve the status quo,” Netanyahu is quoted as saying in a statement from his office.

He adds that Israel would respond aggressively to stone-throwing and firebomb attacks, which have caused the deaths of innocent Israelis.

The Prime Minister’s Office statement did not offer Ban’s responses.
