The police and intelligence agencies have witnessed a slow but significant reduction in the clashes and terror attacks all over Israel including Jerusalem over the past 10 days, acting police chief Bentzi Sau said on Tuesday.

Speaking at a press conference, Sau said that Israeli police are planning for the arrest of "hundreds" of East Jerusalem residents who are suspected in taking part in rioting including the throwing of rocks and firebombs.

Sau also said that six teams of special investigators would soon be sent to Jerusalem to work with the Shin Bet and other security officials in continuing efforts to bring an end to the current wave of violence - efforts which Sau said are working. 

 "In the last two weeks we've managed to bring quite back to the Temple Mount partly due to the distancing of inciters," claimed the acting police chief. "There is an important and significant decrease in stone throwers."
 
Sau accredited this decrease of violence to "efforts of dialogue with local leadership and community."
