    The Facts

    • An armed Palestinian man shot and killed 5 people on Tues. in Bnei Brak, an ultra-Orthodox town near Tel Aviv. The gunman was shot dead at the scene.

    • The attack, which left 1 other critically injured, comes just a few days after a stabbing attack in southern Israel and a shooting attack in Hadera, both claimed by IS.

    The Spin

    Pro-Israel narrative

    This is but the latest in a recent outbreak of violent terrorism across Israel. With Ramadan coming up, Israeli security forces must be on the look-out for more heinous terrorist activity, especially in Jerusalem where attackers may seek to damage the fabric of Israeli life.

    Pro-Palestine narrative

    While tragic, such operations come as a reaction to Israeli acts of aggression against Palestinians. Attacks carried by Israeli settlers, right-wing militants and occupation soldiers are driving the security situation by radicalizing Palestinians to seek revenge.
