Israeli military boosting forces in West Bank, spokesperson says

A day after a Palestinian gunman killed seven people in front of a synagogue on the outskirts of Jerusalem, the Israeli military declared on Saturday that it was increasing forces in the occupied West Bank.

“Following an IDF (Israeli Defence Forces) situational assessment, it was decided to reinforce the Judea and Samaria (West Bank) Division with an additional battalion,” the military said.
