Police chief: Increase in terrorism result of resumption of peace talks

December 25, 2013 14:10

Police commissioner Yochanan Danino said on Wednesday that the security forces have noticed a disturbing uptick in “grassroots terrorism,” something which was predicted once peace talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority resumed.

As a result of the increased tension on the security front, defense officials have beefed up army and police forces in so-called “sensitive areas,” according to Israel Radio.

Danino made the remarks during a condolence visit at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where the traffic cop who was stabbed by a Palestinian in the West Bank two days ago is currently hospitalized.
