At least three Israelis were killed and 20 others were wounded in Jerusalem Tuesday in a pair of near-simultaneous attacks by Palestinians that mark the most serious escalation of a month-long wave of violence.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told the Associated Press that two attackers stabbed and shot people on a bus before one of the attackers was killed and the other was captured. Two people were killed in the attack. Israeli media, citing police, reported that 16 others were wounded.

The Jerusalem Post reported that the bus attack took place in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood in the southern part of Jerusalem. The paper said one of the deceased victims as a 60-year-old man, but had no further details.

Not long ago I posted a thread concerning Panic as rockets hit Russian embassy in Damascus. See link here

Discussing the recent attacks on Jews within the city of Jerusalem and now Fox news releases another attack just minutes ago.

Almost simultaneously, another attack at a bus stop in another part of the city killed at least one person before the attacker was shot and killed by police. The Jerusalem Post also reported that the perpetrator of the bus station attack rammed his car into the bus stop before getting out and stabbing pedestrians. In addition to the deceased victim, police said three others were wounded in that attack.

Police closed major highways leading in and out of Jerusalem, while Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called an emergency meeting of his Security Cabinet, where police were to present a plan to halt the violence. Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the country's internal security minister, Gilad Erdan, was considering a number of immediate steps, including a closure on Arab neighborhoods in east Jerusalem, where many of the attackers have come from, and making it easier to get gun licenses.

At the scene of one of the attacks, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat called on the government to seal off the West Bank and certain Arab neighborhoods of east Jerusalem to quell the wave of attacks that have struck the city.

Earlier Tuesday, Rosenfeld said a Palestinian man from east Jerusalem stabbed another man waiting at a bus stop on the main thoroughfare of Raanana, a quiet city north of Tel Aviv. The Israeli was moderately wounded and the attacker was apprehended and beaten by local residents before he was taken to a hospital.

Since the Jewish New Year last month, seven Israelis have been killed and dozens wounded in a shooting, a stoning and a series of stabbings. At least 27 Palestinians been killed by Israeli fire, including 11 identified by Israel as attackers and the rest in clashes between stone-throwers and Israeli troops.

On Monday, Palestinians carried out three stabbings in Jerusalem, leaving a teenage Israeli boy in critical condition.

The unrest began last month with clashes at Jerusalem's most sensitive holy site and quickly spread across Israel and into the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

The attackers, many of them teenagers, have had no affiliation with militant groups, and the seemingly random nature of the stabbings has made it difficult to predict or prevent them. The use of vehicles and firearms in Jerusalem on Tuesday, however, marked a more serious level of violence and bring back memories of the deadly attacks that plagued Israeli cities during last decade's second Palestinian uprising.

Netanyahu has come under heavy criticism for failing to stop the violence, and an opinion poll this week showed that more than 70 percent of the public is dissatisfied with his handling of the crisis.

Some of the attacks have been carried out by members of Israel's Arab minority, who frequently suffer discrimination and identify with their Palestinian brethren in the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza Strip.

In a fiery speech to parliament on Monday, Netanyahu accused the country's Arab leaders of helping incite weeks of violence.

Israeli Arab towns called a general strike Monday to protest recent tensions.

The violence erupted over the Jewish New Year last month, fueled by rumors that Israel was plotting to take over a site holy to both Muslims and Jews. The rumors ignited clashes between Israeli police and Palestinian activists who hurled stones and firebombs at them from inside the mosque, and the violence has spread.

Israel has dismissed the rumors and repeatedly said there are no plans to alter a longstanding status quo at the spot, revered by Jews as the site of the biblical Temples and today home to Islam's Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.


Netanyahu is being pressured to respond which could call for further attacks from the Palestinians which might include possible missile attacks from Hamas within the Palestine territory. This would reopen the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict that devastated the Gaza strip.

Clearly the Middle East issues in Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, Gaza strip, and Israel has been ongoing but something has changed and that is the Intenstivity and reoccurrence of the attacks that have been escalating in Israel?

I think we should keep an eye open to what is ongoing in Israel..... this could easily break out into another war and this time it could easily move into Syria .....eyes on Damascus.....meaning Israel makes an offensive strike on Damascus and with Russia sworn oath to Syria to protect it, will give the Russians but only way to answer back....... attack Israel.

There are too many ongoing issues in the Middle East for not one of them to escalate into a major international incident which could include the war expanding over borders into other countries. If Israel gets involved the Islamic world will not simply stand by and watch.

The israeli civilians will just start taking revenge themselves if the government doesnt come up with a plan. But dealing with some of these plaestinians, its literally trying to negotiate with half retarded murderous children. Which by the way are the ones they are sending to do these attacks. Yesterday they sent a 13 year old to carry out a stabbing attack.

Since 1 October Israel has killed 24 Palestinians, including 8 children, and injured at least 1,300





consider the history of the question of Palestine and the relevant United Nations resolutions to realize the obvious truth: that a historic injustice has been inflicted upon a people and a homeland, a people that had lived peacefully in their land and made genuine intellectual, cultural and humanitarian contributions to mankind. This people do not deserve to be deprived of their homeland, to die in exile or be swallowed by the sea, or to spend their lives fleeing from one refugee camp to another. Yet regrettably, their just cause remains at a standstill after the passage of all these years
[..]

The persistence of this matter prompts us to ask: do the votes by democratic countries against Palestine-related resolutions and the legitimate rights of our people serve peace and those who believe in the two-State solution? Or do they serve and encourage extremists and increase their hatred and racism, making them believe that they are above the law, to the point where they commit the burning of a Palestinian family in the town of Duma in the West Bank, claiming the lives of an infant, Ali Dawabsheh, and his father and mother? What is left of this family is an orphan child, Ahmed, 4-year old, who lies between life and death in the hospital as a result of his bums, while the killers remain free and have not yet been arrested

[..]

Is it not time to end this injustice? Is it not time to stop this suffering? Is it not time for the racist annexation wall to be dismantled? Is it not time for the humiliating and degrading checkpoints and barriers set up by the Israeli occupying forces in our land to be removed, for the Israeli blockade imposed on the Gaza Strip to be lifted, and for our people to move in freedom and dignity in their own homeland and outside? Is it not time to end the racist, terrorist, colonial settlement of our land, which is destroying the two-State solution? Is it not the time for the six thousand Palestinian prisoners and detainees in Israeli jails to see the light of freedom and to live among their families and communities? Is it not the time for the longest occupation in history suffocating our people to come to an end?

Hi, you made a quote with a link


“We are the masters,” says Israeli mayor, as 3 more Palestinians are killed


Did the Mayor say this? Cause it sends the wrong message, they are just the children of David, and David is dead.

The tabernacle is their for a Levite, how come a Israeli of semite heritage say, we are the masters?

So what you are telling me is that there is hate on both sides?

I also think you forgot to add that some of these killed Palenstines were agitating the soldiers by throwing rocks and making threats.

An elderly man pointing his finger at an armed soldier? Do you think this is wise to agitate someone with a machine gun?

In your last video of the young boy injured on the ground is the young man who had just stabbed an Israeli and had been shot. Why didn't you enclose this in your post?

Children throwing rocks? Isn't that how the child David killed Goliath?

you must mean the israelis, because most "palestinians" are illegal immigrants from egypt, lebanon and jordan. have made no contribution to society, except in innovations in modern terrorism.
Ahmad Shukeiri founder of the PLO born in lebanon
Yassir "happyfeet" Arafat born in cairo
Khaled Mashal chairman of hamas born Silwad, Jordanian West Bank

hamas and the PA have shootouts in the streets for control of turf, much like inner city gangs.
collateral damage is ok because "martyrs"

so imagine palestinian "mommy" Sayida to her 13 year old son.
Sayida-"ok, i packed your lunch in your hezbollah lunch box, and i sharpened your knife extra sharp, go shank some infidels and make mama proud."

Well, they would use their mechanized Army and Air Force like their Occupiers do. Since they don't have any tanks, bulldozers or attack aircraft, they have to suffice.

The Israeli 'government plan' is to wipe out the Palestinians. Remember that country, before it became Israel? The latest round of violence can be traced all the way back to 1948.

oh right! you mean when the british presented both sides with a partition plan for the land which would have given the arabs (egyptian, lebanese, and jordanian nationals) MOST of the land.
and they said "WE WILL PUSH THEM IN INTO THE SEA!"
didnt work out so well for them,
they had tanks back then by the way.
so yes, the violence can be traced back to then, to the violent duplicitous arabs of the region

Its much more ancient than that…

But yah, thats the day the Jewish people were allowed to occupy another country, and call it their own.

Just like that.

Sorry, the people already living there didn't all just evaporate out of convenience. Your arguments pale in comparison to the "settlers" crimes.

no its not. jews have been living on the land for 3700 years UNINTERRUPTED. israel was mostly uninhabited before the 19th century because it was mostly swamps and deserts.the jews bought up the land starting in the 1850s and immediately started improving it. immediately the "settlers" began drainig the swamps and irrigating deserts and lo and behold droves of arabs from the surrounding countries began flooding in looking for better opportunity.

now tell me ONE confirmed settler "crime" that matches sending out a 13 year old with a sharpened knife to go kill innocent women and babies?

Relax dude. Anyone can see by itself who are Oppressors and victims. There is no need to be nervous and pointing me as a:
«propagandeers» you're speaking about you? here take a mirror...

«there are no words that dont violate the T&C that i can use to describe you»
Words words words... it's going on for the last decades, since Israel occupied Palestine.
