The police reported that this operation is part of a series of both overt and covert ones in Jerusalem and in the region.

 

"The Israel Police will work hard against anyone who chooses to attack uniformed personnel wherever they are, as well as those who attack policemen while carrying out operational activity," the police announced in a statement.
