    Less than 48 hours after terrorists killed a female Border Police officer guarding the Old City’s Damascus Gate and wounded two others in the Muslim Quarter, police arrested 350 Arab suspects who illegally entered Jerusalem from the West Bank. Noting that the three assailants who carried out Friday night’s coordinated attacks that took the life of Staff Sgt. Major Hadas Malka, 23, came unlawfully from the village of Deir Abu Mash’al, near Ramallah, police enforced a massive crackdown.

    “Police security measures are continuing at the Damascus Gate and around the walls of the Old City, with special patrol units and SWAT teams that are arresting suspects and removing individuals from the area to keep it safe,” said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld on Sunday.
