Israel beefed up security across Jerusalem in preparation for the World Holocaust Forum, as footage filmed on Wednesday shows. Dozens of world leaders are expected at the event in Yad Vashem Remembrance Center to commemorate 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz.
«Our units will be escorting the convoys back and forth as swiftly and as quickly as possible on the Thursday afternoon when the... Еще main event will be taking place here at Yad Vashem. We've asked local residents in fact to stay home, not come into the areas where they know that the Israeli police are patrolling, carrying out security measures, and will be escorting the different representatives. But the local residents are patient. They understand that this is a huge scale operation, one of the largest in fact over the last five years here in Israel,» said Micky Rosenfeld, the Israel Police National Spokesperson.
French President Emmanuel Macron, US Vice-President Mike Pence and Russian President Vladimir Putin are among the leaders attending the event.
