Police to Increase Security at French Hill


Following repeated terrorist attempts in northern Jerusalem recently, Mayor Nir Barkat and the local police chief have decided to order a special municipal and police patrol be added to the security system of the neighborhood of French Hill and Hebrew University.

The patrol will be dedicated exclusively to this perimeter, in addition to regular police patrol vehicles in the area. This will be a pilot to be expanded to other Jerusalem neighborhoods as well.

Barkat explained, "We will continue to help the police and security forces restore the sense of personal safety for the residents of Jerusalem."
