Checkpoints to be erected in East Jerusalem

For the first time in decades, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu orders the setting up of checkpoints at the entrance to East Jerusalem’s Arab neighborhoods, following Tuesday morning’s fatal terror attack in a Har Nof synagogue.

The prime minister also instructs security forces to carry out raids on the homes of suspected terrorists in the city.

In addition, two more Border Police contingents will be assigned to the capital.
