Gov't. Mulls Response to 2nd Bulldozer Attack

Ad Feedback

CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - Following Tuesday's terror attack in Jerusalem, security officials are mulling responses to protect the city's residents.

At 2:00 p.m. yesterday, an Israeli Arab from east Jerusalem drove a bulldozer into a bus and five cars, injuring between 16 and 24 people, one seriously, before an Israeli from a town in southern Judea and a Druze Border Guard shot and killed him.

Yesterday's incident marks the fifth terror attack by an east Jerusalem resident since the beginning of the year.

Twelve Israeli Jews have been killed and many more wounded in the attacks.

In 2005, the Israeli government stopped its deterrent policy of razing the terrorists' homes.

Other punitive measures used in the past include expelling the terrorist's family and/or voiding the Israeli identity cards of immediate family members.

Yuval Diskin, head of the Shin Bet (General Security Agency), favors returning to more stringent measures to address the problem of deterrence with Arab residents of east Jerusalem.
