On July 25, police removed advanced security cameras—together with metal detectors, which had been installed at the entrance to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, in an attempt to appease Muslim rioters in Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem.
The cameras and metal detectors had been installed following the terror murder of two Israeli policemen by three Israeli Arabs on July 14.
The removal of the cameras was part of a decision by PM Netanyahu’s security cabinet to replace existing security measures with new, “advanced technologies,” at the cost of $28 million over a six-month period.
