Israel Speeds Up Security Camera Placements in West Bank

(Ha'aretz) Amos Harel - In the past year, the Israel Defense Forces has accelerated the installation of a comprehensive network of surveillance cameras throughout the West Bank. More than 1,700 cameras have already been put in place on roads, intersections and in Israeli communities, including cameras clearly visible as well as hidden cameras. Along Route 443 from Jerusalem to Modi'in, an operations room has been set up that collects data from many cameras in an effort to reduce stone-throwing and firebomb attacks on this major artery. There has also been increased use of drones, helmet-mounted cameras and cameras installed on military patrol vehicles and those of civilian security personnel.
