After the two shocking attacks that took place in Jerusalem, this evening (Saturday) there is heavy tension in Yosh, leading to many reports of attempted attacks, which turn out to be false.
The IDF will increase the forces in the West Bank by three additional battalions, while reinforcing ongoing security positions - this with the understanding that there is a need to prepare for the possibility of inspired attacks, which sometimes happens after attacks.

Following the attacks, Israelis embarked on a series of demonstrations all over Yosef. Dozens demonstrated at Tapuh intersections, Shiloh intersections, Kfar Etzion intersections, Rimonim intersections, Ma'ale Ephraim intersections, Karni Shomron intersections, Parsa intersections, Kadumim intersections, Shevi Samaria intersections, and Behad intersections. 3, Focus Square near Beit El, at the entrance to the village of Beit Purik, the Ariel intersection, the entrance to Kiryat Arba and other intersections.
As mentioned, the heavy tensions also led to reports this evening of attempted stampedes, which turned out to be false.
At the Tofu intersection, a Palestinian truck driver was frightened by the demonstrators who were there, turned in their direction and fled the scene.
Also at the Kedumim intersection, a Palestinian driver was afraid of the demonstrators, deviated from his lane - and was stopped.
In both cases, there were no casualties, and apparently these are not terrorist attacks.
In an attempt to lower the level of tensions, Samaria Brigadier General Shimon Siso decided, in an unusual step, to declare the area of the Kedumim junction as a closed military area.
