The office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Jerusalem municipality have agreed to fortify approximately 1,000 bus stops in Jerusalem following the deadly ramming attack in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot last week.

In the first phase of the work, 300 bus stops will receive barriers to protect people at the stops from ramming attacks. This phase will focus on areas which are determined to be at higher risk of attack. In a later phase, an additional 700 bus stops in other parts of the city will receive fortification.

The Prime Minister's Office and the municipality have also agreed to strengthen police forces in the capital.

On Friday, a terrorist rammed into a crowd waiting at a bus stop in Ramot, killing three people, including a six-year-old child and an eight-year-old child, who were brothers.
