Israel control over E. JerusalemThe Israeli today approved a $ 90 million dollar socio-economic development plan for annexed east Jerusalem which focuses on increased security and police presence in the area, the municipality said.

"One of the main goals of the plan that was approved is to bring about a significant decline in violence by means of integrated activity to reduce gaps in infrastructure, employment, education and social welfare and by boosting enforcement and personal security," said a statement from city hall.

The plan involves an increase in the number of policemen on the beat as well as a greater number of security cameras.

"According to Israel police assessments, the plan will lead to a significant decline in the short- and medium-term of over 50 per cent in displays of violence," it said.

Police figures quoted by the municipality indicate that in March and April, there were 390 incidents of stone-throwing at the security forces and vehicles in east Jerusalem, as well as dozens of cars stolen and break-ins.
