Jerusalem24 – In an interview with the Israeli daily newspaper, Ha’aretz, an Israeli police officer today said that their main concern is Lone Wolf attacks.
The officer said that concerns about lone-wolf attacks or copycat attacks in the occupied West Bank, Jerusalem, or Israel are shared with the other Israeli security services.
Ha’aretz reported that the police are worried about traditional attacks in the first week of Ramadan, but are reluctant to determine the current escalation situation.
According to the newspaper, another source of concern are the operatives of ISIS, or Islamic Jihad, after the liquidation of a cell affiliated with the movement in Jenin yesterday, Saturday.
The Israeli police are scheduled to intensify their activities and reinforce their presence in the old city of occupied Jerusalem, as well as mixed cities in Israel.
According to the newspaper, on the first day of Ramadan, the Israeli police avoided any exceptional events in Jerusalem; allowing Palestinians to reach Al-Aqsa and facilitating the entry of merchants to the old city.
The Israeli Minister of Internal Security Omer Bar-Lev will hold a security assessment session with the participation of Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai and senior officers, to draw lessons from the organized preparations so far to prevent the situation from deteriorating.
