The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, sought Israel’s advice over counter-terrorism strategies for the UK in light of the Manchester Arena and London Bridge attacks.
After the mayor addressed more than a thousand attendees at Jewish Care’s annual dinner, he revealed that representatives from his office and Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley had been in touch with security officers in Israel.
He told the Jewish News: “My office has been in contact not only with Tel Aviv but other places as well.”
Mayor Khan stated that he had learned “lots of things, things like putting in place the barriers we have done in London. There are other things and we are using the advice we receive.”
He confirmed that British police officers regularly visit Israel and are in regular communication with their contacts there.
Mayor Khan added: “Just like the terrorists evolve, we have to find new ways to protect ourselves.”
