Fears of escalation in Israel-Palestinian violence

A Palestinian protester uses a slingshot to throw back a tear gas canister fired by Israeli security forces during clashes at the main entrance of the West Bank city of Bethlehem on October 16, 2015Deadly violence between Israel and the Palestinians flared Friday as a Jewish holy site was torched in the West Bank, prompting a “very concerned” US President Barack Obama to call for calm. More than two weeks of violence have sparked concerns of a full-scale uprising and Obama called on both Israeli and Palestinian leaders to tamp down inflammatory rhetoric. The arson attack on Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus came as Palestinians called for a “Friday of revolution” against Israel and as clashes along the border with the Gaza Strip saw Israeli fire kill two Palestinians and wound 98.
