Right-wing MKs Meet Arab Leaders over Rock Attacks


MKs Michael Ben-Ari and Aryeh Eldad of Ichud Leumi met Wednesday with Arab leaders in the Mount of Olives (Har Hazeitim) neighborhood of Jerusalem. They sat down with leaders and local Arab residents in an attempt to find ways to put a stop to frequent rock attacks on Jewish visitors to the Mount of Olives cemetery.

The MKs thanked the Jerusalem Police for their work in fighting the attacks, but called for more to be done, including the establishment of a continuous presence along roads leading to the cemetery.
