The security barrier that was placed at the entrance to Jerusalem’s Jabel Mukaber neighborhood was removed by the Jerusalem District Police after the various Israeli security forces decided that it was no longer needed. The Jerusalem District Police stated that it removed the security barrier in order to allow the residents to return to their normal routines.
The security barrier was placed there after the deadly car ramming attack in Jerusalem about a month ago. Over the past month, Israeli security forces conducted several operations in the neighborhood and arrested Palestinian rioters and stone throwers. Indictments will be filed against them soon. Now that the security forces’ operations in the neighborhood have come to an end, the security barrier is no longer needed.
