The Jerusalem Municipality promises to deal with the phenomenon of posters and ads featuring images of women being vandalized, reports Haaretz.

According to the report, the municipality promises that it will hire employees in the next three months to deal with the issue, and that it will work with police to formulate a plan to battle the phenomenon, including funds to install security cameras near major billboards.

The promises were made after a hearing at the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court in a petition related to the issue — which has been a common sight in Jerusalem in recent years.
