The Israeli ministerial committee for legislation is expected to approve a proposed law which imposes a prison sentence of 20 years against any Palestinian who throws stones toward Israeli vehicles.According to Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency, the proposed law suggested by Israeli Minister of Justice, Tzibi Lvini, intends to raise the punishment of stone throwing at Israeli passersby up to twenty years, and five years for those who throw stones against Israeli forces .

Israeli news outlet Yedioth Ahronoth points out that the decision imposes an additional financial fine on families, as many participants in the current clashes in Jerusalem are minors, where the law does not allow to impose a severe penalties against them, such as high fines and long prison sentence.
