Zionist Union MK: Deploy infantry in major cities

MK Yoel Hasson (Zionist Union) calls on the cabinet to deploy IDF infantry battalions in city centers where there has been “intelligence warning” against terror attacks.

“The IDF is a defense force. Right now the citizens of Israel need defense in the home front which has become the battle front,” he says.

The extreme measure Hasson is offering has not been implemented since the Six Day War in 1967, when Israel retook the city of Jerusalem from the Jordanians. Police are expected to recommend that the government impose a closure on Palestinian villages and neighborhoods near Jerusalem, however.
