Terror-plagued Rte 443 to get more lighting, security cameras
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that it was intolerable for one of the two main highways to Jerusalem, Rte 443, to be plagued by daily Palestinian rock, firebomb and other attacks. Security was also to be upgraded in Jerusalem. He ordered lighting and security cameras installed the full length of the highway. Two extra Border Guards men and hundreds of police officers would be deployed on the highway and at flashpoint areas in the capital. Netanyahu told a special meeting with the ministers of defense, public security, intelligence, transport and justice, as well as the Shin Bet Director, that there would henceforth be zero tolerance for stone-throwing and other terrorist acts.
