Police defend handling of dispatch call during mob attack of American students

Police on Saturday defended emergency dispatch operators after reports that they bungled distress calls placed by a Palestinian man protecting 5 lost American yeshiva students from being attacked by a Palestinian mob in Hebron Thursday.

“An investigation of the incident has found that it was dealt with immediately and professionally, with coordination between the police dispatch and the IDF,” the Judea and Samaria police said Saturday.

Police added that the incident was a difficult one, in that it took place inside area A, which is under Palestinian control.
