The police and intelligence agencies have witnessed a slow but significant reduction in clashes and attacks all over Israel, including Beit-ul-Moqaddas over the past 10 days, acting police chief Bentzi Sau said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press conference, Sau said Israeli police are planning for the arrest of “hundreds” of East Beit-ul-Moqaddas residents who are suspected of taking part in rioting, including throwing rocks and firebombs, World Bulletin reported.

Sau also said six teams of special investigators would soon be sent to Beit-ul-Moqaddas to work with the Shin Bet and other security officials in continuing efforts to bring an end to the current wave of violence, efforts which Sau said are working.

“In the last two weeks, we’ve managed to bring quiet back to the Temple Mount partly due to the distancing of inciters,” claimed the acting police chief. “There is an important and significant decrease in stone throwers.”

Sau accredited this decrease of violence to “efforts of dialogue with local leadership and community.”
