The ideal of holding the conference has sparked outrage among the Palestinians who maintain that the conference is part of Israel’s efforts to cover up its crimes in the Palestinian territories.
Till Friday, several events will be held through the international conference. Thousands Of Israeli police and counter-terrorism officers have been deployed throughout the streets of city. Police checkpoints have also scattered all around the area, and random checks have been conducted to secure the city.
