VIDEO: IDF braces for more violence after day of terror

After a Wednesday full of several terror attacks throughout Israel, including two within the Green Line, security forces are expected to increase readiness all over the country.

Two Palestinians, both residing illegally in Israel, committed attacks on Wednesday, raising concerns among many that one terror attack will inspire another.

Four reinforcement brigades deployed to the West Bank last Thursday will continue to be active over the next few days, according to two main modes of operation: An increase in nighttime arrests of those active in popular terrorism, such as leaders of riots, high-profile agitators and stone-throwers, alongside containment of the many ongoing riots in the West Bank.

Forces have been instructed to halt riots from spreading to roads, towns and army posts.

In contrast to the Second Intifada, during which terrorists committed suicide attacks deep within Israel or made murderous infiltrations into settlements alongside enormous protests including thousands of rioters, it appears that there are no current plans to limit the movements of the Palestinian population.
