IDF deploys six more battalions to deal with possible unrest in Judea, Samaria

Following consultations including the chief of staff, Lieut. Gen. Gady Eisenkott, the IDF decided Thursday to deploy six more battalions in Judea and Samaria ahead of the Muslim prayers on Friday. Meanwhile, the commander of the Jerusalem District of the Israel Police, Deputy Commissioner Yoram Levy, said there could be casualties if the Palestinians do not keep the peace during Friday prayers. He predicted that an especially large number of worshippers will attend. "Don't test us", he warned, saying the police know how to respond in a strong and determined manner.
