 Benny Gantz: Israel steps up operations in Judea and Samaria

The army has set up checkpoints in Judea and Samaria near the settlement of Ariel amid a search for additional suspects who may have been involved in a mass-casualt attack that thwarted in Tel Aviv, reports Army radio.

Defense Secretary Benny Gantz said Israel will step up anti-terrorism raids, while not specifically linking the army's efforts to Thursday's alleged thwarted attack.

“We we will send more forces and take more measures, strengthen cooperation between defense departments and accelerate the construction of the separation barrier”, & mdash; he said at the awards ceremony for distinguished officers, adding that last week the security forces foiled a number of attempts to harm Israelis from the territory of Judea and Samaria.
