The Algemeiner reports: JNS.org – The Israel Police will establish a special unit to secure the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan announced on Tuesday.

The unit’s officers will “protect visitors to the Temple Mount and will have the most advanced intelligence and technological resources in existence available to them,” Erdan said at an event in honor of Jerusalem District Police officers.

“I envision Jerusalem becoming within two years not only the holiest city in the world but one of the safest cities in the world, with the most advanced technology that exists today,” he said. “The city will become a role model for advanced cities throughout the world, both in terms of the skills of the police deployed in and in terms of the technologies that exist there.”
