In wake of an attempted bombing in downtown Jerusalem Sunday morning by a Palestinian man, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat issued a statement saying that "thanks to the vigilance of light rail security forces of the Jerusalem municipality, a major attack was avoided."

Barkat advised the public to "continue with our routine, keep vigilant and never give in to terror. "

"We must pursue the terrorists everywhere without compromise and without restraint."



Barkat also thanked security forces on behalf of all Jerusalem residents.
