Weinstein opposes opening fire against stone throwers despite PM claims

Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein said on Sunday that he opposes stricter rules of engagement, opening fire against stone throwers and setting minimum sentences for those caught.

Weinstein made the remarks at the end of a special hearing held at the Prime Minister’s office about the escalation of violence in Jerusalem.

His statements were made despite the Prime Minister’s Office’s claim yesterday that the draft presented by the police included Weinstein’s consent. The draft included the tightening of the rules of engagement, and approved the use of the Ruger American Rifle by police against certain rock-throwers in Jerusalem.
