MKs Demand More Vigilance on Mount of Olives


In the wake of continued rock attacks and vandalism in the Mount of Olives cemetery in Jerusalem, two Members of Knesset held their fourth tour of the site.

They called for a constant police presence to ensure the safety of worshipers, tourists and motorists in the area.
