Four Palestinians attempting to enter Israel through a West Bank checkpoint with a gun, a knife and a dozen bombs were arrested.
The men, who also were carrying a gun and a knife, were suspected of being on their way to carry out a terror attack, according to reports. The location of their target was unknown. They were attempting to enter Israel through a checkpoint near Jenin.
The suspects are being questioned by the military.
I was very sorry to learn of the murder of Juliano Mer-Khamis, 52, an actor who famously described himself as “100 percent Palestinian and 100 percent Jewish.”
Born in Nazareth to a Jewish mother and Arab-Israeli father (making him halachically Jewish), Mer-Khamis, a onetime paratrooper in the Israel Defense Forces, co-created and ran The Freedom Theatre, a company for Palestinian children and youth from the refugee camp of Jenin.
