As the street filled, the Palestinian fired into the crowd. A video taken by bystanders shows him escaping into an alley after emptying his firearm. There he is attacked by dozens of Israeli military police.

Shooting early in the day

The shooting follows an incident earlier in the day that left three Palestinians dead in the West Bank. The occupation police raided the town of Jaba in search of jihadists. And those militants were killed in that battle.
