Senior Officer: Riot Headlines Exaggerated


A senior officer in the Central Command addressed on Tuesday the riots throughout Judea and Samaria.

"I believe the headlines are more dramatic than the events themselves," said the officer, adding that the recent riots were "larger and the level of violence was higher than it was in the same area in recent months."

He added that a significant calm was felt today.
