Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke this morning, Sunday, at the Likud faction meeting ahead of the cabinet meeting about the increasingly tense security situation.

"Since the beginning of the events, I have held a series of meetings and assessed the situation with all the security forces, including those in the field," Netanyahu said.

The Prime Minister added, "We are receiving an updated picture of the situation and recommendations for action, and we are acting accordingly."

"We are conducting this with composure, determination and responsibility - and we will continue to do so in order to maintain security," Netanyahu said, addressing the ministers. "I also expect you to act with the responsibility demanded of you."

This evening, the Political-Security Cabinet is scheduled to meet again, at which time decisions will be made regarding future conduct on the Temple Mount.
