Two Israeli officers hurt in shooting attack

Monday, September 06, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff  

Palestinian terrorist gunmen opened fire on an Israeli Border Police vehicle on Monday lightly wounding two officers.

The Israelis were conducting a routine patrol along the "Green Line" separating Israel proper from the so-called "West Bank" when the passengers of a passing Palestinian vehicle opened fire.

The terrorists managed to flee the scene and find safety in nearby Palestinian Authority-controlled areas.

Shooting attacks against both Israeli security officials and civilians have drastically increased since the start of renewed peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority last week.

Most attribute the attacks to efforts by rogue Palestinian elements like Hamas to torpedo the peace talks. But many Israelis also note that if the Palestinian Authority is either unable or unwilling to control its own people, then it cannot be a viable peace partner.
