Earlier in the week, the IDF deployed two additional battalions to its Judea and Samria Division, three companies to the Jerusalem-West Bank perimeter area, and two reinforcement battalions to the Gaza border, to deal with disturbances along the security fence there.
On Thursday night, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to stop inciting Palestinians to attack Israelis with knives and axes, in a press conference given in Jerusalem.
The violence is the direct result of false Palestinian charges that Israel is attempting to take over the Temple Mount and is executing Palestinians, Netanyahu said at the press event designed to present Israel’s case to the world.
He spoke just one day after Abbas delivered a speech on both points and then claimed that Israel had killed Ahmed Manasra, 13. The young teen along with his 15-year old cousin had stabbed a 13-year old Israeli in Jerusalem’s Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, terrorists carried out multiple attacks in Jerusalem and Ra’anana as Palestinian groups called for a previous “day of rage.”
Three Israeli were killed and several other wounded in two attacks in Jerusalem, including a deadly vehicular ramming and stabbing attack in the capital’s Geula neighborhood and another gun and knife attack on a bus in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood.
