A Palestinian shot knifing an Israeli Border Police officer near Bethel

A Palestinian who stabbed an Israeli border Police officer outside Bethel near Ramallah Friday was shot by fellow officers. He was suspected of wearing a bomb vest which may or may not have been fake. The Palestinian Red Crescent evacuated the assailant, who had posed as a journalist, before it could be established. The officer was taken to hospital.

Expanded security forces were out at flashpoints in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Gaza border, ready for Palestinian disturbances after Friday prayers at the mosques. Police broke up a small gathering outside the Damascus Gate entrance to Jerusalem’s Old City; Hamas tried to organize street rallies in Nablus and Ramallah but only a few dozen turned out;  and small groups clashed with security forces in Hebron, Bethlehem, and the Kalandia check point, before they were scattered with tear gas and rubber bullets.

    They do not need more check points in Israel, they need more firing squads to protect against Islamist-polluted killers.
