To this decision the leadership of the police came after a hard day, during which almost did not stop the riots in Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem. During the riots killed three Arabs, hundreds of participants of the clashes with police were injured.
Representatives of the Israel police said that the attack carried out on the Temple mount a week ago, changed the situation in the area and has made adjustments to procedures to ensure safety.
