The Tel Aviv-Jaffa municipality has announced that, due to the security situation and Friday's attack, it is preparing special security measures.

Security patrols in educational institutes and municipal facilities will be upgraded, with a special emphasis on patrols near kindergartens and educational institutes, as well as crowded areas. A command and control center will work 24 hours per day, constantly updating police about suspicious activity seen on cameras throughout the city.

Furthermore, municipality inspectors have been ordered to increase their alertness and to report any unusual incidents they see in public. The municipality also calls on the public to continue as usual and to exercise restraint, but also to increase their alertness and to report all unusual activity.

All school trips are continuing as usual, though in accordance with Education Ministry instructions.

Tel Aviv-Jaffa Mayor Ron Huldai says, "I understand the hearts of parents in light of the current tensions. This evening I held a meeting with the Prime Minister and all the senior security officials. It was agreed to significantly increase the presence of security forces around the city's educational institutes over the next few days."
