JNS.org Israeli border police on a raid to apprehend a terror suspect in the Palestinian refugee camp Qalandia near Ramallah were attacked by more than 1,500 Palestinian rioters, resulting in deadly clashes that left three Palestinians dead.

The Israeli Border Police were in Qalandiya to arrest Omar Al-Khatib, a Palestinian terrorist freed in the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap, Israel Hayom reported.

According to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), Israeli soldiers sent to assist the Border Police unit made the decision to fire on the rioters after they felt their lives were in danger. A video posted on Youtube by an onlooker shows an Israeli Humvee being pelted by stones, wood and other heavy debris from the surrounding rooftops.
