“Live” fire was used today (20 May) at IDF forces during the riots west of Tul Karem. There were no wounded. The source of the fire was not identified and therefore the IDF did not respond with live ammunition. The IDF strongly demands from the Palestinian Authority to immediately deal with the violent disturbances-which originate in its territory-aimed against the security forces, and seriously views the use of live ammunition in the disturbances. The IDF acts with restraint in order to return the quite to the area yet in every instance in which the lives of its soldiers are threatened by the use of “live” fire, its response will be harsh.
