Reinforcements for security forces arrive in Jenin

JENIN (Ma'an) -- Reinforcements arrived on Wednesday for the national security forces in Jenin, in part of a campaign to increase security in the city.

Around 560 armed special forces officers arrived at Horsh al-Saada camp in 70 military vehicles. They were greeted by Jenin governor Talal Dweikat and Gen. Fathi al-Tayeh.

“This force arrived to help security forces in their efforts to maintain the safety and security of the city,” Dweikat told Ma’an.

He added that they are there “to protect the belongings and money of people and apprehend anyone involved in the recent attacks in Jenin”.

Security forces have arrested dozens of people suspected in shooting at government buildings and vandalizing shops and cars in Jenin last month.

Dweikat said that most Palestinians want order to return in the area.

He added that this campaign did not have a specific time limit, and said that “we will continue to provide our services to all Palestinians to give them a calm life and a safe and stable environment”.
