10,000 Deployed To Secure President Trump’s Visit To Israel


More than 10,000 police officers will be deployed to secure President Donald Trump on his two day trip to Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

Trump will arrive at Israel’s Ben-Gurion Airport May 22 and then fly to Jerusalem with a fleet of nine helicopters to visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial center and the historic old city, the Jerusalem Post reported. He will land at the King David Hotel, a favorite of visiting politicians and diplomats.

Trump’s convoy will be made up of 56 vehicles, including 13 limousines and over 10 motorcycles. His hotel suite in Jerusalem is currently being installed with bullet proof glass.

A police spokesman told the Jerusalem Post that a full range of regular police units would be mobilized during the visit with further counter-terror units, border police and undercover officers deployed in coordination with the Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security apparatus.
