Bibi Calls for Concrete Safety Barriers at Jerusalem Bus Stops

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called for concrete safety barriers to be installed at hundreds of Jerusalem bus stops after a Palestinian terrorist ranmmed his card into a crowd of Israelis lined up at one.

Netanyahu on Monday announced the plan, proposed by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, the Times of Israel reported.

Under the plan, expected to cost $500,000, protective posts would be installed temporarily at bus stops deemed to be at the greatest risk of car-ramming attacks like the one that took place Monday afternoon.

The perpetrator, a 21-year-old Arab man from eastern Jerusalem, intentionally drove his car into a cluster of people who were waiting for a bus. He was shot dead.

An 18-month-old baby was one of the 14 people injured and remains on life support.
