Disguised Israeli Police Launch Surprise Attack on Palestinian Rally


Israeli police officers disguised as Palestinians, some with Palestinian flags tied on their forehead, infiltrated a demonstration in the West Bank, before they open-fired with pistols and threw smoke grenades at the protesters.
Nearly 400 Palestinians took part in the rally in West Bank city of Ramallah on Wednesday, according to Israel Police. AFP news agency reporters, who also managed to film the events, cited lower numbers, saying up to 150 Palestinians were protesting near the Beit El military checkpoint.


The demonstrators were throwing stones at Israeli security forces and burning tires to protest Washington's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. At one point, several men among them, wearing traditional Arabic kufiya scarves and a Palestinian flag wrapped around the head, revealed themselves as Israeli law enforcement.


They pulled out pistols, threw smoke grenades and captured several Palestinian protesters. In a Ruptly video, they can be seen donning balaclavas labeled "Police" as the remaining protesters scatter.


At least three Palestinians were arrested, Jerusalem Post reported citing the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) spokesperson's unit.


One of the protesters was fired at his lower body, the report added, saying that "the IDF and security forces will continue to act" against Palestinian demonstrators.
