“identity not clear”

February 11, 2010 at 2:13 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Yesterday an Israeli Druse was murdered by a Palestinian. That is what the Guardian has to say:

The suspect tried to flee but was quickly apprehended. His identity was not clear. Such attacks were once common in the West Bank, but have become relatively rare as Palestinian forces have increased security over parts of the territory.

JPost gives this information:

Khatib was sitting in his Sufa jeep with the window open when the PA police officer, who was wearing civilian clothes and was later identified as Muhammad Hatib, approached, pulled out a knife and thrust it into Khatib’s chest. (…) IDF sources said the attacker was the head of bureau for the PA’s Ramallah police chief. IDF sources said that the PA police were trained by a European Union organization, based in Ramallah, called the EUPOL COPPS (the EU Police Co-ordinating Office for Palestinian Police Support). EUPOL COPPS representatives were unavailable for comment.

And Ynet:

Palestinian sources in the West Bank town of Jenin reported that a large IDF force raided the home of the terrorist who murdered Sergeant-Major Ihab Khatib (28) at the Tapuach junction on Wednesday. The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit confirmed the report. (…) The terrorist reportedly served as a senior officer in the Palestinian security forces.

Hence, according to the Guardian the story must be like this:

Palestinian forces are securing the West Bank. In the meanwhile an unidentified officers of these very forces kills an Israeli soldier (an effort to secure the West Bank???). And the evil evil Juices rade the very home of this officer of whom it is not clear who he is, but only where he lives, what he is doing for a living and who his close family is.

Just a few weeks ago members of the Palestinian forces murdered an Israeli civilian.



Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on Wednesday condemned the stabbing of an IDF soldier at the Tapuah checkpoint by a Palestinian police officer. (…) However, one emerging trend is difficult to ignore. Most of the fatal attacks in the West Bank in recent years were carried out by members of Palestinian security forces.
