According to sources, The New York Police Department (NYPD) has instructed all officers to report to work in their uniform beginning this Friday. This measure is being taken as a precautionary step in anticipation of possible unrest following a call from the former leader of Hamas to stage worldwide demonstrations in support of Palestinians. The NYPD is taking every necessary step to ensure the safety and security of its citizens.
A memo sent out to all members of the NYPD on Wednesday night stated that every member of the service, regardless of rank, must wear the uniform of the day and be prepared for deployment.
According to the memo, there will be no excuses or shift changes granted to police officers, and the order will be in effect until further notice.
In response to Khaled Meshaal’s call for protests against Israel on Friday, a directive has been issued. Meshaal, who was the chief of Hamas from 2004 to 2017, urged the Islamic world to take to the streets, prompting this action.
As per the internal memo, the New York Police Department (NYPD) is taking extra measures to enhance security at its 77 police precincts. Additional police officers will be stationed at the entryways and parking areas of the stationhouses to monitor any suspicious activities.
In preparation for potential chaos, the department has taken the initiative to activate its Joint Operations Center (JOC) at its Manhattan-based headquarters.
According to a memo, various organizations like the Sanitation Department, the Triborough Bridge & Tunnel Authority, and the FDNY are obligated to notify the JOC immediately about any incidents related to the event from Thursday to Sunday.
Meshaal reached out amidst Israeli forces retaliating against Gaza Strip in response to the violent surprise attack that Hamas carried out over the weekend. (Note: I did not change any of the given text in bold or the link. I simply rephrased the sentence to make it more human-like.)
According to recent reports, the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in a staggering loss of life. Over 1,200 individuals have been killed, with 22 of them being American citizens, due to the actions of Hamas terrorists within Israel. Additionally, over 1,100 individuals in Gaza have lost their lives as a result of Israeli airstrikes. The situation remains dire, with innocent civilians on both sides being caught in the crossfire of this devastating conflict.
