New security measures cause drop in terror activity in Jerusalem

Violence in the capital had abated significantly by Tuesday after police set up multiple roadblocks and heavily armed checkpoints, coupled with intensive spot checks, in east Jerusalem Arab neighborhoods.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said roadblocks placed over the past several days in Jebl Mukaber, Shuafat, Silwan, Ras el-Amud and Isawiya have been instrumental in stymieing further terrorist activity.

“The results of our emphasis on roadblocks and checkpoints throughout the capital can be felt on the ground,” Rosenfeld said on Tuesday.
