Following a consultation with Israeli Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, Netanyahu instructed the officials to fortify the capital’s public transportation stations, which have increasingly been the scene of Palestinian car-ramming terror attacks.

Last year, similar barriers were placed in front of bus stops and light rail stations in Jerusalem as well as Judea and Samaria during a spate of vehicular attacks.
