Police finalize security preparations for Passover in Jerusalem’s Old City

Two days after an unsolved bus explosion in Jerusalem, and amid protracted tensions over what many are deeming a third intifada, police said on Wednesday that nothing is being left to chance when tens of thousands of Jews and Christians gather in the Old City for Passover.

Over 3,500 police officers from a range of units – including Counterterrorism, Undercover, and Special Patrol – will be deployed throughout the capital, with an emphasis on the Old City, where large-scale ceremonies will be held.
