Palestinian Authority Arab riots are attacking Israeli police and soldiers at the Kalandia, between Ramallah and Jerusalem, Tuesday morning in protest of the death of an Arab rioter in the same areas last night when the IDF tried to arrest a suspected weapons dealer.
Soldiers entered Kalandia at night to arrest the man and were met with dozens of rioters. When one of them threw an explosive device at the soldiers, they fired back and killed the attacker.
The Arab version is that the man was shot in cold blood and simply was sitting on the roof of his house watching the action.
The Palestinian Authority has damaged itself over the years with a severe credibility gap that firing media no longer can ignore since Hamas was caught red-handed time after time lying to them during the war in Gaza last summer.
The Palestinian Authority made matters worse for itself the past few weeks by claiming that two men were murdered even though autopsy reports, issued by Arab and Jewish doctors, proved otherwise.
The first case was a Jerusalem Arab bus driver who hanged himself. The PA version is that “settlers” murdered him.
The second case was last week when an autopsy showed that a Palestinian Authority minister, suffering from heart disease and high blood pressure, died from a heart attack brought on by stress during a clash with Israeli soldiers. Tear gas that was fired to disperse the rioters contributed to the stress.
Now comes the claim that soldiers, confronting dozens of Arabs going wild and throwing everything but the kitchen at them, decided to turn their attention to a supposed peaceful Arab who was bored and went on the roof to watch the riot.
