( Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised to invest tens of millions of shekels in bolstering security in Judea and Samaria.

Netanyahu spoke with the head of the Samaria Regional Council, Yossi Dagan, about how the Israeli government will continue to strengthen security in Judea and Samaria, Haaretz reported, citing Israel Radio. Judea and Samaria as well as Jerusalem have been hit particularly hard during the current wave of Palestinian terror.

“We are acting with all the means at our disposal to strengthen security in Judea and Samaria. The activities of the security forces are focusing at this stage on the roads. The IDF is acting and will continue to act with the full support of the political leadership at all times and everywhere it is needed,” Netanyahu said.

Israel government funds will cover lighting on roads, better cellphone coverage, and fortifying security in places with frequent terror attacks.
