Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said that Israel was "Not on the verge of a third uprising (in the West Bank). We should act responsibly, especially the other side, which shoulders most of the responsibility."
Aharonovitch added that "We are preparing for the possibility of riots on Temple Mount. We are aware that stones have been brought there but forces are in place and at the ready." (Itamar Fleishman)
