On the heels of a violent weekend rampage, culminating in the Sunday arrest of a terrorist who drove his vehicle into four Border Police officers in east Jerusalem’s E-Tur hours earlier, the Public Security Ministry announced the deployment of 500 police reinforcements to the capital.

While visiting the four wounded officers at Shaare Zedek Medical Center Sunday afternoon, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch conceded that the spike in violence necessitates more police officers on the streets.

“You cannot stop the lone terrorist who decides to carry out such attacks,” he said. “We have added some 500 officers to patrols in Jerusalem in recent days.”
