(Worthy News) – Jerusalem police began on Sunday to place portable concrete slabs between the predominantly Jewish neighborhood of Armon Hanatziv in the capital’s southeast and the Arab neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, in a bid to stem a series of terrorist and Molotov cocktail attacks carried out in the area over the past weeks.
The move followed the placing of concrete blocks in roads leading out of many Arab East Jerusalem neighborhoods, in a move criticized by some as de facto splitting the unified city.
The concrete wall, 300 meters long and about five meters high, was intended “to prevent the throwing of firebombs at the houses on Meir Nakar Street [in Armon Hanatziv] and to prevent the loss of life. It means nothing more,” a police spokeswoman said. [ Source ]
