VIDEO: PM Netanyahu Visits the New Command Center of the Jerusalem Municipality Observation Unit

VIDEO: PM Netanyahu Visits the New Command Center of the Jerusalem Municipality Observation Unit
[VIDEO IN EXTENDED ARTICLE] Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday 26 Marcheshvan, visited the new command center of the Jerusalem Municipality observation unit, which operates observation balloons throughout the city and gives the municipality and the Israel Police real-time intelligence coverage of disturbances and violations of the law. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat briefed the prime minister on the unit, which serves as the aerial operations branch of the municipality, the Israel Police and the enforcement authorities, and on the way in which it assists the security agencies that operate in eastern Jerusalem in locating disturbances, large-scale gatherings, demonstrations, and the throwing of stones and firebombs. Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "I am impressed by the genuine effort to market our capabilities, both to protect and to intervene in real-time against disturbers of the peace and terrorists. No effort is spared here; this has great effect. This morning we demolished the home of a terrorist. This is a significant and important step and there will be more home demolitions; there will be many more steps. We have nothing against the residents of eastern Jerusalem but we will not tolerate attacks on our citizens and we will act against those who do these things and against those engaged in incitement. With a determined and vigorous hand, we will restore security to Jerusalem." Mayor Barkat added, "Mr. Prime Minister, first of all, thank you for coming to the command center. Your interest is very important here because we know that with your support we will be able to boost personal security for the residents of Jerusalem. I think that what has been formulated in recent days, with your help and that of the Israel Police, is a concept that will undoubtedly and dramatically increase our ability to respond to what we, unfortunately, experience in the city of Jerusalem. We had a very, very difficult day yesterday but we are looking forward and know that we will overcome and cope. You have seen what we are planning, what happens in the municipal command center, and I am pleased that you are here. It is good that you are backing us." (YWN – Israel Desk, Jerusalem)
