It is worth mentioning that this latest attack took place a few days after Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and his government, decided that the dangerously escalating Price Tag attacks carried out against the Palestinians, not only in the West Bank, but also in the 1948 territories, “are not acts of terrorism”.
