Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has visited the site in the West Bank where Palestinian gunmen last week killed an Israeli couple in their car as their four children watched from the backseat.

The attack kicked off a bloody holiday weekend in which four Israelis were killed and four Palestinians were killed amid violent protests.

During the visit on Tuesday, Netanyahu pledged that his country will "break this wave of terror like we broke previous waves of terror." The day before, the Israeli leader promised that he will use a "strong hand" to quell violent Palestinian protests and deadly attacks.

Netanyahu also says Israel will deploy cameras along major West Bank routes to help prevent further such attacks.

Israel has already sent thousands of soldiers to battle the recent outbreak.
