Otzma Leyisrael: Hevron Riot from Softness to Hamas

Knesset members Aryeh Eldad and Michael Ben-Ari, who head the Otzma Leyisrael party, respondeded to Thursday afternoon's riot in the Judean city of Hevron by saying, Thursday evening, "The policy of the [Binyamin] Netanyahu government regarding procedures for opening fire abandons the lives of soldiers and civilians in Israel."

The statment by the two continued, "The riot by the Palestinian police officers is a direct continuation of the softness shown by the Netanyahu government in the cease-fire agreement with Hamas [which ended Pillar of Defense counter-terror campaign in Gaza]."
