Tough Israeli response to attack risks backfire: experts

Ultra-orthodox Jews watch emergency personnel clean up and secure the area of an attack by two Palestinians on Israeli worshippers at a synagogue in Jerusalem on November 18, 2014Tuesday’s deadly attack on a Jerusalem synagogue marked a new level in the violence plaguing the city but a tough Israeli response could trigger further escalation, experts say. After two Palestinians burst into the synagogue armed with a gun and meat cleavers, killing four worshippers and wounding nine other people, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged a harsh response to the brutal murders. Israel has already progressively upped security in and around the Holy City following a series of deadly incidents involving lone Palestinian attackers. Political and security analyst Daniel Nisman said there was likely to be a “bigger deployment” of police and border police throughout Jerusalem and even talk of deploying the army in the annexed eastern sector.
