Security Cabinet Approves Completion Of Barrier Around Jerusalem

The Jerusalem Post reports: The security cabinet late Thursday night approved the immediate renewal of construction work on the security barrier around the area of Jerusalem, in an effort to halt Palestinian terrorist attacks against Israelis.

It was one of a series of measures the cabinet took just hours after US Vice President Joe Biden flew out of Ben-Gurion Airport for Jordan.

There are also gaps in the barrier around Jerusalem that need to be completed.
