Police chief Insp.-Gen. Roni Alsheich on Sunday called on the public to remain alert but not change its daily routine after eight people were wounded in a Jerusalem terror attack.
Speaking at the scene of the attack, Alsheich said that it is "not surprising" that there were those attempting to shatter the tranquility of the holidays and hurt Israeli morale.
He said, however, that the public in Jerusalem is strong and will not be deterred by such attacks.
Alsheich said that despite the attack, there is "no change in the situation assessment and no need to change behavior." He said that everyone planning to come to Jerusalem should come, as the police is well prepared.
The police chief admitted however, that the success of this attack could embolden other such attackers.
