Benjamin Netanyahu Promises Israel Will Use 'An Iron Fist' to End Arab Protests


Violence has spread across the region as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict escalates after taking place at Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa Mosque with Israel and Palestinian Hamas militants engaged in heavy fighting in the Gaza Strip over the past few days over a years-long fight over Jerusalem.

Israel will "stop the anarchy and restore governance to the cities of Israel, with an iron fist if needed, with all forces needed and all authorities required," Netanyahu said.

Israeli President Reuven Rivlin blamed the "silence of the Arab leadership" in Israel for unrest within the country taking place in mixed Jewish-Arab communities and added it is "encouraging the rupture of the society."
