Close to the end of the third day of the municipal strike that had wreaked so much havoc on the capital, a phone call from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Mayor Nir Barkat put an end to it all.

Behind the scenes, Jerusalem Affairs Minister Ze’ev Elkin intervened, with even an attempt to involve President Reuven Rivlin. This culminated in Barkat’s understanding that he had to finally find a way to climb down.
