TEL AVIV – Israel is beefing up its forces in the West Bank and conducting a spate of arrests as its leaders grapple with the deadliest spate of terrorist attacks on the country’s soil in years.
At least 11 Israelis have died in three attacks in the past week. Fearing more, the Israeli military said it is deploying 12 additional battalions to the West Bank — where Tuesday’s attacker came from — as well as two additional battalions to the Gaza border and 15 companies of special forces to support Israeli police. Authorities said police were suspending normal routines to focus on fighting terrorism in Israel.
