Police Tactics, Intelligence-Sharing Tip Scales in Jerusalem's War on Terror

(Jerusalem Post) Daniel K. Eisenbud - More than 3,500 police officers working around the clock have helped turn the tide in the wave of Palestinian terror attacks in Jerusalem, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Tuesday. With the last major attack in Jerusalem having taken place on March 9, he said the relative lull in violence is attributable to hyper-vigilance, preemptive tactics and extensive intelligence coordination. "Over the last couple of months, there's been a change in tracking and finding potential terrorists, and police units are deeply involved in tracking social media sites where potential terrorists are making contact with one another and transferring information," he said. "Based on this information, police have been able to reach potential terrorists and have them arrested before they can carry out attacks."
