Israel will open five new police stations in East Jerusalem, Minister of Internal Security Gilad Erdan has announced. “Over the years, a large gap has opened between the western and eastern parts of the city in terms of policing, and that’s the gap we want to fill with these new positions,” Erdan said.
“Our national sovereignty begins by exercising our sovereignty over Jerusalem.” There are currently no Israeli police stations in Palestinian neighborhoods in east Jerusalem apart from in the Old City, police spokeswoman Luba Samri stated.
Minister Erdan said that the creation of these posts is part of a four-year plan that provides for the recruitment of 1,200 new police officers in Jerusalem. This move by Israel is of utmost significance since the Bible prophesies that Israel will never allow Jerusalem to be divided even though the world community is insisting that she must. The prophecies always prove out to be true!
