Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that the Israeli occupation intends to increase its efforts to combat Palestinian resistance in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank, following a carramming incident near Jerusalem.

At Sunday’s cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said that his far-right government will take a widereaching stance against Palestinian resistance in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The Israeli occupation forces and Jewish settler movement have been deliberately escalating their aggression against Palestinians, emboldened by extremists in the Israeli government who have given them permission to act with impunity.
