Israel's security cabinet on Thursday broadened the rules under which stone-throwers can be targeted by live fire, a statement from the prime minister's office said.

"The security cabinet has decided to authorise police to use live ammunition against people throwing stones and Molotov cocktails when the life of a third person is threatened and no longer only when the police officer is threatened," said the statement.
