News of Terrorism and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict (May 20-26, 2015)
Special Reports
May 27, 2015

This past week Israel’s south remained quiet. In Jerusalem there was a vehicular attack targeting a group of Border Policemen, carried out on the road to the Mt. of Olives. Two policemen suffered minor injuries. The terrorist operative was shot and killed. Fatah praised the attack. The Palestinian Authority’s media represented the event as a “traffic accident” and severely criticized Israel for the death of the terrorist. The PA, as usual, did not condemn the attack.

The Palestinian media recently reported that a dirt road was being constructed in the Gaza Strip along the border with Israel at a distance of a few hundred meters from the border security fence. The Hamas-affiliated media reported that the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas’ military-terrorist wing, was in charge of the roadwork. In ITIC assessment, the road challenges Israel. Its objective is to upgrade the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades’ control of the region near the border fence. It also improves Hamas’ operational capabilities against IDF forces on the other side of the fence, and Hamas’ ability to infiltrate terrorist operatives into Israeli territory.
