An Israeli security guard was seriously wounded by a Palestinian in a stabbing attack near the Western Wall in the old city of Jerusalem on Sunday afternoon. The terrorist was shot and killed by an Israeli policeman.
The IDF reported the detonation of an explosive device on Saturday on the border fence separating Israel from Gaza. No Israeli troops were in the vicinity at the time of the explosion and no injuries or damage was reported.
The ‘Zeppelin’ observation balloon being used by police is ‘part of a complete intelligence network that includes security cameras and other advanced, undisclosed technological means,’ said Commander Shimon Ben Sahvo.
