Israel concerned about renewed shooting attacks in Gilo

March 14, 2008 11:34 A.M. (Updated: March 14, 2008 11:34 A.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli police are concerned about the possibility of renewed shooting by Palestinian fighters from the Palestinian town of Beit Jala into the Israeli settlement Gilo, south of Jerusalem after Israeli forces gunned down four fighters in neighboring Bethlehem on Wednesday.

Senior Jerusalem police officers toured Gilo on Thursday night and gave instructions on how to respond to new shooting, Israeli media reported.

Emergency services in the southern parts of Jerusalem have been put on a heightened state of alert.

During the first years of the Al-Aqsa Intifada, Gilo was exposed to almost daily attacks from the Palestinian resistance, so that a number of Israeli residents displaced, usually to locations inside Israel's 1949 borders.
