Following a police assessment meeting, and amid reports of a terror alert in the Tel Aviv area, it was decided on Friday to raise the alertness level and beef up security in crowded places across the city, mainly in its northern part. Police blocked roads and performed scans. In addition to the high level of alertness in Tel Aviv, police continue the extensive searches for the Tel Aviv terrorist Naasaht Milhem in northern Israel, near his place of residence. The main focus is in places such as Kafr Qara, Ar’ara and other towns in the Wadi Ara region.
The Jerusalem District Attorney’s Office on Friday indicted two residents of East Jerusalem, who are suspected of collaborating with members of Hamas in planning to carry out terror attacks against Israelis. The indictment also states that they planned to place a bomb under a stage at Arena Hall, ahead of a scheduled speech by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
A day after the shooting incident in Egypt, the ISIS terror organization took responsibility for the terror attack claiming it was carried out in response to organization leader Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi’s call . There were dozens of Israeli Arabs for Um El Fahem on the bus. However, Egyptian authorities claim the motive for the attack was criminal.
Heavy rain storms hit Northern Israel causing streams to over flow.
