Jewish Home party Chairman Naftali Bennett called today, Sunday, on military prosecution to seek a death penalty for the terrorist who murdered 3 members of the Salomon family in the Samarian community of Neve Tzuf (Halamish) on Friday night.

Bennett wrote on his Twitter account: “The possibility of the death penalty exists in military courts. There is no need for legislation, only a request.”

Last night, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu decided, in light of the escalating security situation, that no changes will be made to the security system at the entrance of the Temple Mount until the Political-Security Cabinet’s meeting Sunday evening.

Last night, Police installed new cameras at the entrances to the Temple Mount compound. At the same time, security forces conducted a wave of arrests in Judea and Samaria which saw the arrests of 29 wanted persons, including senior Hamas figures.
