BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli cabinet ministers are scheduled to discuss imposing tougher punishment against Palestinians who "riot" inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, according to Israeli Channel 2.
The channel reported Friday evening that after the Passover holidays, Israeli ministers will discuss the possibility to imprison "rioters" for a longer period.
The report highlighted that "riots" had increased recently inside the compound.
A proposal has been made recently, according to Channel 2, to place "rioters" under administrative detention, whether they hail from East Jerusalem or from the Islamic movement in northern Israel.
