Three Palestinians were injured in attempted attack on an IDF post in Abu Dis on May 15; security operations likely in near term

TIMEFRAME expected from 5/16/2020, 12:00 AM until 5/18/2020, 11:59 PM (Asia/Jerusalem). COUNTRY/REGION Jerusalem


Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers reportedly shot and injured three Palestinian men in the town of Abu Dis (East Jerusalem) after they attempted to attack an IDF post on Friday, May 15. Soldiers opened fire as the men allegedly prepared to throw Molotov cocktails and explosive devices at them.

The incident comes during an increase in tensions in the West Bank following the killing of an Israeli soldier on Tuesday, May 12, a visit to Israel by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the killing of a Palestinian protestor on Wednesday, May 13, and the 72nd anniversary of the 'Nakba' on Friday, May 15.

A heightened Israeli security presence is to be expected throughout the West Bank and Jerusalem, with associated disruptions to transport in the near term.


Individuals in Jerusalem are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate a heightened security presence, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
