Kalandia Crossing West Bank

The terrorist was killed after civilian security guards shot and neutralized him.

Around 200 people arrived at the Kalandia crossing to riot after a stabbing attack occurred Friday night, according to Channel 10.

The IDF sent an extra battalion to Hebron recently as it prepared for renewed Palestinian violence against Israelis, in the aftermath of multiple terrorist attacks in Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The sudden spate of attacks comes at the end of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha and just before the High Holy Days, a period that marked the start of a months-long wave of violence last year.
