Southern Police Chief Cmdr. Yossi Prienti held a special evaluation on Saturday with representatives from the IDF, Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency), the Home Front Command and Magen David Adom officials. The meeting concluded with a decision to maintain an increase in numbers of emergency forces in the southern district, many of whom were sent as reinforcements since the Eilat terror attack on Thursday.
The reinforcements are designed to allow swift arrival at numerous rocket impact zones. All public events have been canceled. Police will continue to be on increased patrols in Eilat and in the hotel region, and checkpoints will remain in the area to check all incoming traffic.
