‘We don’t take chances,’ senior cop says about morning’s arrests

After a manhunt for two suspected terrorists that snarled traffic across the greater Tel Aviv area this morning ended with the release of the two suspects without charge, the greater Tel Aviv police chief tells Army Radio that “during days like these we don’t take chances.”

“The suspects were arrested — and even if they didn’t try to carry out a terror attack, we still did our job,” he says.

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai tells the radio station that “We’re all doing our best to continue life as normal.”

“I’ll continue going to Jaffa — a third of Jaffa is Jewish, and we live together,” he says.
