Cold blooded terror in Israel!
A security guard was shot dead at the entrance to an Israeli settlement in the West Bank on Friday evening.
Two terrorists opened fire on the man in the city of Ariel and fled, the Israeli army said. According to the rescue workers, the security guard succumbed to his injuries. The army launched a manhunt for the perpetrators.
Videos from a surveillance camera testify to the attack, according to the Israeli media. It also shows how the perpetrators flee after the attack. One drives away in a car, the other walks away from the crime scene.
Unbelievable: The spokesman for the radical Islamist terror organization Hamas, Hasem Kassem, described the attack as a “heroic operation at the end of the holy month of Ramadan”. It is part of “our people’s response to the attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque”.
Tensions between Israelis and radical Palestinians have recently increased because rockets have repeatedly been fired from Gaza into Israeli territory. Massive riots broke out in Jerusalem on Friday morning on the square in front of the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
Palestinian rioters threw stones and firecrackers on the Temple Mount, including at the Western Wall. The Israeli security forces took action against the predominantly young men. Since the end of March, 14 people have been killed in several attacks on Israelis.
