Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered the mobilization of thirteen Border Police reserve companies as a "preventive and deterrent measure" following the recent wave of terror attacks. This is in addition to three companies that have already been called up.

Last night (Friday), Prime Minister Netanyahu told US Secretary of State John Kerry to ensure that the Palestinian Authority stops its incitement against Jews and Israelis, which Netanyahu blames for the recent attacks. Kerry responded that Israel must not disrupt the status quo.

The Prime Minister's office says that the security establishment will meet tomorrow in order to look into recent actions by the Muslim Brotherhood and the Islamic Movement.

Netanyahu has recently ordered action to be taken against the Islamic Movement and its increasing incitement.
