Joint List MK Ofer Cassif slammed the IDF when he took to social media to say that “the claims about a Molotov Cocktail, [which may exist] or not don’t matter a thing."
On Sunday, an IDF soldier was struck by a Molotov cocktail during clashes between Israeli security forces and Palestinians in Hebron, according to Palestinian reports.
The soldiers responded to the cocktails with fire and hit one of the suspects, identified as Badawi Masalmeh, who later died.
The operation took place after police noticed a high amount of incidents in recent months where residents of Shuafat threw Molotov cocktails at roadways, endangering drivers.
The unidentified attacker reportedly told police that he attacked the synagogue in order to protest Israel.
The border police spokesman said that violent clashes broke out at the camp while they were conducting a security operation there.
Twenty-one fires were set on Thursday in the Gaza vicinity due to burning kites.
Community members say school and synagogue attacked; no injuries.
