Israel: Palestinian militant factions deny Islamic State claim of Jerusalem shooting incident

Palestinian militant factions have today denied a claim by the Islamic state that three Palestinian men who led a fatal shootout stroke and stroke strokes in Jerusalem were members of the militant group.

The Islamic state took responsibility for Friday’s attack in which one Israeli policeman was killed and another wounded, according to the QAMA news agency.

Israeli security officials did not immediately respond to requests for comments on what the SITE tracking group described as the first time the Islamic state had claimed an attack on a territory controlled by Israel or affiliated with the attackers.

However, a senior Hamas official, the Islamist group that governs Gaza and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), said the three attackers, all of whom died on the spot, were its own members.

“The three martyr heroes who carried out the operation in Jerusalem have no relationship with Daesh (Islamic State), which are associated with the PFLP and Hamas,” Hamas “Izzat al-Reshiq said on Twitter.

The PFLP issued a statement identifying two of the attackers as members. “The FPLP press office army army cries two of its heroic comrades, two released prisoners,” he said.

Israeli police said Friday that all of the attackers were from Palestinian cities in the occupied West Bank. Two attackers, both from Ramallah, were between 18 and 19 years old and the third was 30 years old from Hebron, police spokeswoman Luba Simri said.

The attacks took place simultaneously in two areas near the Damascus gate of the ancient walled city of Jerusalem.

Two Palestinians were shot dead after they opened fire and tried to beat a group of Israeli police in a scene, police said. In the other, a Palestinian policeman mortally wounded the border before being shot down by the police.

A wave of attacks by Palestinian streets began in October 2015, but has since declined. Israel accuses the incitement of violence by the Palestinian leadership.

The Palestinian Authority, which exercises limited autonomy in the West Bank denies it and says the assailants acted out of the desperation of the Israeli occupation of land sought by the Palestinians for a state.

Peace talks between the two countries erupted in 2014. Palestinians want to establish an independent state in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, territories Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East war.

Darjeelingprotests:Policeman stabbed during Gorkhaland stir, two GJM workers die in firing

A policeman and two political workers have died in clashes in Darjeeling on Saturday as violence has convulsed the picturesque mountain resort and the army crossed the street to press against protests demanding a separate state of Gorkhaland.

Local sources said Kiran Tamang, an officer in the Indian reserve battalion, was stabbed in the back with a traditional Gorkha knife while security forces struggled to contain the crowds of thousands of people who burned police cars and looted Government property shouting slogans against the government.

“Five years that you have enjoyed now, when elections are held, violence starts because it has lost credibility,” said Mamata Banerjee, the main minister in Calcutta, Gorkha Janmukti Morcha who heads events. It is expected that before August – Elections in the Autonomous Territory Gorkha Administration – controlled by the GJM.

Undersecretary of GJM, Binay Tamang, Gorkha Janmukti Morcha carrying the demonstrations, claimed that two supporters were shot dead by the police, but their identity could not be determined immediately.

Deputy director general of police (order) Anuj Sharma denied that police had fired on protesters, but the local television footage showed bullets fire forces in the air.
“We want a judicial investigation into the firing, and the police did not fire rubber balls or water cannons, they opened fire with .303 caliber bullets, are we enemies of India?” Tamang told reporters.

Thousands of tourists fled Darjeeling – known as the queen of the hills – as clashes erupted on June 8 between government forces and GJM. Parts of the hill – led by ally GJM BJP – gathered to press a 100-year petition to separate Gorkhaland plains from West Bengal, a claim strongly opposed by Banerjee.
Supporters of Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM) are involved in government institutions such as hydroelectric projects and health centers.

These are the first deaths in the protests as the spiraling violence in the hills after a police raid in the office of the GJM chief, Bimal Gurung, who is hiding. Experts fear that blood can fall Darjeeling riots in the 1980s, when hundreds of people died when the state government brutally repressed the movement.

An autonomous Hill Council with special administrative authority has been established as a compromise, but is plagued by allegations of corruption dilatory and governmental projects.

The government reported that it will not bow to the GJM, but faces an unprecedented crisis, just weeks after the Trinamool Congress has made history by recording its first victory on a hill in the city when Mirik won.

Saturday scenes in Darjeeling and Ghoom looked like near a battlefield with charred buses, police vehicles and stones and mutilated dozens of balls scattered on the road. There were blood stains on the road in the Lebong Basket Front street of the University of San Jose.

Police fired tear gas and GJM supporters who began throwing stones at them. Many GJM women also work in the streets to protest. GJM supporters had the advantage of knowing the terrain and local roads that shocked and surprised the security forces.

“Mortal supporters take advantage of the local advantage and attack the police.It is unfortunate.We expect it to withstand vandalism in the hills with people,” said Darjeeling’s mediator, Trinamool’s president, Goutam Deb, who is Also Minister of State for Tourism.

Meanwhile, Bikram Rai, an employee of the GTA media cell and the son of the MP of Darjeeling, Amar Singh Rai, who was arrested at his residence last night, was released on Saturday.
