Israel enacted a series of stringent security measures late Tuesday following a day of intense violence that left three people dead and more than 20 injured in a wave of shootings and stabbings.

The nation's security cabinet approved the measures, which included 300 new security guards for public transportation, beefing up the ranks of Israeli police, and authorization for police to surround "centers of friction and incitement" in Jerusalem.
