Yesha Council: Treat Every Rock Throwing as Attempted Murder

The Yesha Council expressed its sorrow on Tuesday evening following the passing of Adele Biton, and sent its condolences to the entire Biton family.

“Rocks are murder weapons. Rocks kill and to our dismay, in many cases, rock throwing is perceived as mere “Disorderly conduct.” Little Adele and her family paid the price of Israel’s policy of restraint. Over the past two years, they bore the difficult ramifications of the rock throwing that takes place on a daily basis,” sources within the Yesha Council said.

“The Yesha Council calls upon the Israeli government and IDF to treat any rock throwing as attempted murder and deal with the terrorism with an iron fist,” the sources added.
