Six companies of IDF soldiers are scheduled to enter Jerusalem Wednesday, the day after the Security Cabinet decided to beef up measures to combat terror.
Both security forces are coordinating and working together, but exact positions of deployment of soldiers have not yet been defined.
Police have not placed a curfew on violent Arab neighborhoods, a move that was cleared by the Cabinet but which will be carried out at the discretion of the police.
So far, no major violent has been reported in Jerusalem,.
Restrictions were placed on Arabs from Jabel Mukhaber, the home of several terrorists who have wounded and killed Jews in the past months, including three who were killed yesterday. Border Police closed one entrance to the area and placed a checkpoint a second.
