The security presence at schools in the capital will be “significantly increased” amid fears of attacks, Channel 2 reports.
The request, which came after many concerned parents of Jerusalem students turned to the municipality to complain, was approved by Israel Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino.
“Terrorists can just enter and slaughter our children,” one parent said.
“From the beginning of the year, there has been no security guard at our kindergarten. There are more than 100 kids in the school, and there is still no security guard,” another parent wrote on the Jerusalem municipality Facebook page.
