Israel Wanting To Staunch Palestinian Attacks, Extends Patrols Into East Jerusalem

Israeli police are expanding their presence into East Jerusalem's Palestinian neighborhoods to extend a lull in attacks on Israelis by young residents that began last fall.

“East Jerusalem is a high priority for us now, and our plan is intended to ensure the improvement of livelihoods both for Jews and Arabs,” police spokesperson Luba Samri said.

She said police are actively recruiting Arab police officers and seeking to foster cooperation with local Arab community leaders to “enhance civilians’ feeling of safety and trust in the law enforcement system.”

Jerusalem police Chief Yoram Halevy announced in August that in addition to the temporary police stations already in place on the outskirts of East Jerusalem, another six stations manned by 1,200 officers will be operating as part of a $262 million plan over the next four years.

East Jerusalem is a sprawling network of villages that has become a hotbed of violence, drugs and crime. Israeli security forces have been combating a string of assaults that erupted last fall by young assailants armed mostly with knives.

Since September, Palestinian attacks have killed 34 Israelis and two visiting Americans, while 207 Palestinians have been killed, most of them identified as attackers by Israel, according to the Associated Press.

Reported attacks have declined dramatically in the past two months, from 103 in June to fewer than 10 in July and August combined.

A lot is happening in Israel these days. The number of Israel's enemies is increasing and the many nations and their government are hating Israel the more.

Jesus christ, in the Bible had already prophesied what would be in the nearest future of our time. And we are already in that time, for this is the last generation that would see the invasion of Israel like never before. Gradually we are coming to that point. 

If you are doubting, see it here in the Bible. It must surely come to pass. Just keep your eyes on Jerusalem for there lies the climax fulfillment of Bible prophecies. 

Luke 21:20-22 KJV
"And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. [21] Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. [22] For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled."
