PM: Act Agressively Against Attacks on IDF

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered the security forces, Tuesday, to act aggressively against those who attack Israeli soldiers and commanders. A brigade commander was lightly injured by a rock thrown at his vehicle, Monday evening, when about 50 nationalist activists rioted at the Ephraim Regional Division's headquarters. The division commander escaped injury when a rock was thrown at his vehicle.

Netanyahu said, "This incident deserves all condemnation.  The security forces need to concentrate on defending our citizens and not on such outrageous lawbreaking."
