Israelis protest against deadly Palestinian attacks

Several hundred demonstrated in Jerusalem Wednesday evening, calling on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to act against a recent surge in deadly attacks carried out by Palestinians. Protesters gathered near Netanyahu’s residence, waving signs that said “Stop the terror wave.” There has been a spate of apparent “lone wolf” Palestinian attacks against Israelis in Jerusalem and the West Bank recently. Two men were

killed in separate West Bank shootings, and two people were wounded in stabbing attacks, including a female border police officer seriously hurt after being stabbed in the neck by a Palestinian woman. “Netanyahu is not acting strong enough against Palestinian terror,” said Mitchell Myers, who lives in the West Bank settlement of Shilo. Netanyahu has been making goodwill gestures to Palestinians for the holy Muslim month of Ramadan, he said, while “in exchange we have been getting terror day after day.”
