Something very bad has happened in Hebron. A shooting incident. Palestinians opened fire on Jewish worshippers returning from the Cave of Makhpela. When the rescue services arrived they opened fire on them too. So far they're talking about at least 11 dead, 20 wounded. These numbers aren't final. It's a long time since the event occured and there should be more accurate numbers by now. Bish reckons the numbers are probably higher. A TV guy just gave the same assumption. They're saying on TV that the Palestinians were shooting and throwing grenades for about half an hour. Ehud Yaari says the Islamic Jihad took responsibility. He explains that the Islamic Jihad is directly connected to Iran and Hizbullah and can no longer be seen as an independent Palestinian organization.
