    The footage showed the plainclothes soldiers drawing their weapons and then arresting three people.

    An Israeli military spokesperson said that around 350 Palestinian protesters hurled rocks and firebombs at the Israeli forces. They also rolled burning tires and aimed fireworks at troops, she said, adding that the troops reportedly heard shooting.

    In response, the soldiers shot at several protest leaders, wounding at least two who received treatment by an Israeli medical team at the scene before being evacuated to Israeli hospitals in Jerusalem. One protest leader was arrested, she said.

    Palestinian witnesses said the violence was triggered by protesters who were angry over escalating tensions and the death of four Palestinians who killed or attacked Israelis in the past several days.

The real solution till Mashiach comes is the death sentence for murderers with blood on their hands presently in prison, and the death sentence for any potential terrorist caught in the planning stages. The death sentence should be enacted within 48 hours of the crime.
