Israeli media informed the attacker who raided a group of officers in East Jerusalem on Sunday. Six of them were injured, the Jerusalem Post website reported.
According to reports in the Jerusalem Post, the incident took place in the Ash-Sheikh Jarrah district, which was one of the hotspots in the current conflict. According to the newspaper’s website, six police and border guards were injured. The driver of the vehicle was “quickly shot and neutralized” by a policeman. Medical officials reported that “a total of six people were injured, but all were conscious.”
“There are fights between Jews and Arabs in many cities in Israel,” commented the Jerusalem Post on Sunday, citing the Israeli security service Shin Bet, which reported that several dozen people had been detained accused of attacks on “Israeli citizens”.
The Reuters Agency said 33 Palestinians, including eight children, were killed in the Israeli air raids on Sunday. The Gaza health department later said the death toll had reached 40.
According to the Palestinian side, the record of the firefight that has been taking place since Monday has been 188 people killed in the Gaza Strip, including 55 children, and 1,230 wounded.
The Israeli side claims that rockets launched by Hamas killed 10 people and injured 288 people.
The appeal of the Red Cross
According to Robert Mardini, director general of the International Committee of the Red Cross, the intensity of the current phase of the conflict is “something we have never seen, with uninterrupted air strikes in the densely populated Gaza and missiles reaching Israel’s large cities.” The organization called on the parties to the conflict to make a ceasefire on Sunday.
