- An Egyptian border guard policeman infiltrated Israeli territory, and shot and killed two IDF fighters manning a guard post. Another fighter was killed during the pursuit of the shooter. The Palestinian terrorist organizations did not formally react to the attack, but the Palestinian media outlets issued a wide variety of joyous responses. The Egyptian army said in its statement that the policeman was preventing drug smuggling.
- This past week there were three terrorist attacks in Judea and Samaria: two shootings and one vehicular ramming attack; three IDF fighters were wounded. Two uninvolved Palestinians were shot near Neveh Tzuf; one of them, a three year-old child, later died. The IDF is investigating the incident. Israeli security forces continued counterterrorism activities in Judea and Samaria, detaining Palestinians suspected of terrorist activities and seizing weapons, a lathe used in the manufacture of weapons and funds for financing terrorist activities. Palestinians in Judea and Samaria continued throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails at Israeli vehicles.
- The Gaza Strip remained relatively quiet. Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) delegations are currently in Egypt, holding meetings with each other and the Egyptians. Estimates have been made for Operation Shield and Arrow’s property damage to the Gaza Strip. The al-Nasser Charitable Association and Iran’s Martyrs’ Foundation distributed funds to the families of shaheeds in Gaza.
- The Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership held meetings with foreign diplomats, among them the Chinese ambassador to the PA and the president of the German Bundesrat. The PA leadership is worried about UNRWA’s financial situation, while Hamas criticized the renewal of American support for the agency. Administrative detainees threatened to go on a hunger strike beginning on June 18, 2023.
- During the early morning hours of June 3, 2023, an Egyptian border policeman infiltrated Israeli territory, and shot and killed two IDF fighters manning a post on the Egyptian border. Several hours later, when attempts to communicate with the two proved futile, an IDF force dispatched to verify the situation found them both dead. A large number of forces were deployed to the area and instituted a search. In the afternoon the forces identified the Egyptian policeman in Israeli territory. An exchange of fire developed and the Egyptian was shot and killed. One IDF soldier was shot and later died; another was wounded. IDF forces continued searching the area to negate the presence of additional terrorists (IDF spokesman, June 3, 2023).
- According to the initial investigation, Muhammad Salah, 23 years old, from al-Qaliuba northern Egypt, premeditated the attack. He deserted his position, and armed with a gun and two knives, he walked the three miles to an emergency crossing. He used a knife to cut the zip ties closing the crossing and entered Israeli territory. He then walked to the IDF post, stood in a blind spot, shot the soldiers and ran away. According to initial assessment he was working alone and not a member of any organization, although it is suspected he had a jihadist-religious background; a copy of the Qur’an was found on his person.
- A spokesman for the Egyptian army claimed an “operative in the security forces securing the border was looking for drug smugglers.” According to the Egyptians, he broke through the crossing and “in an exchange of fire three Israeli soldiers were killed and two wounded;” searches were conducted and legal measures instituted. The spokesman offered condolences to the families of the soldiers who had been killed and wished the wounded a speedy recovery (Egyptian army spokesman Twitter account, June 3, 2023).
- The Palestinian terrorist organizations did not formally react to the attack, apparently because of their relations with Egypt. However, unofficially, the Palestinian media outlets and social networks touted the “IDF’s operational failure” and praised the Egyptian border guard for killing the soldiers. They also published cartoons expressing their glee (Shehab, June 3, 2023). Many mentioned Suleiman Khater, the Egyptian policeman who, on October 5, 1985, shot and killed seven Israelis, four of them children.

- PA Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh said he was shocked and deeply sorrowed by al-Tamimi’s death. He demanded the “criminals” be prosecuted and not allowed to evade punishment (Facebook page of PA government spokesman Ibrahim Melhem, June 5, 2023).
- The PA foreign ministry called his death “a crime against humanity,” and called for an international investigation of the killing of Palestinian children in general and of al-Tamimi in particular, as well as for a UN standing committee and the International Criminal Court to take responsibility.

It was the second time this year the al-Nasser Charitable Association, with the support of the Iranian Martyrs’ Foundation, distributed funds to the families. The first time was in March 2023 before Ramadan.
- According to reports, on previous occasions families with children younger than 15 and older than 60 had not received financial aid, enraging many Palestinians who vented their anger on the social networks. For example, Khalil Amer Abu Ibrahim wrote, “Is someone 16 years old a shaheed of the homeland and someone 14 years old only a number?! Dozens of families lost their children because jihad [i.e., PIJ] operatives hid out in their building. I lost my three children in an attack, they were human shields for some anonymous resistance operative hiding in my house” (al-Nasser Association Facebook page, June 2, 2023).

He also met with Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, who stressed Egypt’s support for the rights of the Palestinian people, adding that the Egyptian government would continue its initiative to rebuild the Gaza Strip launched by President el-Sisi two year ago (Mostafa Madbouly’s Facebook page, May 31, 2023).
- Hussein al-Sheikh, secretary of the PLO’s Executive Committee, met with the Chinese ambassador to the PA. They discussed preparations for Mahmoud Abbas’ visit to China, which is scheduled for the middle of this month (Hussein al-Sheikh’s Twitter account, June 1, 2023).

- Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian delegate to the UN, who participated in the conference, said they were worried by the UNRWA’s financial crisis, which was liable to peak during the last four months of 2023. He said they would continue their efforts to convince other countries to contribute to the agency (palsawa, June 4, 2023).
- Ahmed Abu Houli, a member of the PLO’s Executive Committee and head of its deputy of refugees’ affairs, said that despite the promises to support UNRWA, the pledges were insufficient.

- According to recent reports, UNRWA signed an agreement with the United States administration to renew America’s annual contribution to UNRWA, which was suspended under Trump. Hamas condemned the renewal of American funding because, it claimed, it represented the agency’s surrender to American pressure under the guise of a financial crisis (Shehab, June 3, 2023). Relations between UNRWA and Hamas became strained when Matias Shamali, UNRWA director in the Gaza Strip, was interviewed by Israeli TV’s Channel 12 after Operation Breaking Dawn (August 2022), and called the IDF’s attacks “very sophisticated” and not directed against civilians. After the interview Hamas declared Shamali and his deputy “undesirable” and they left the Gaza Strip.
- Ramzi Awda, chairman of the “international academic campaign against the occupation and apartheid,” wrote about the increase in the number of Western municipalities which were boycotting Israel. He wrote that various measures had to be taken to preserve the “wave,” among them researching the environmental factors that caused the boycotts, which would aid in creating conditions to multiply their numbers; showing respect for those municipalities; and twinning them with Palestinian municipalities. The Palestinian municipalities, he wrote, had to ask their twins to boycott Israel, and provide all the documents necessary to denounce Israel’s policies; and increase the ties between official diplomacy and popular diplomacy to garner support from Western municipalities for the Palestinian issue and a boycott of Israel. He wrote they had to work in the international arena at the municipal level to create international pressure that could change the policies of Western countries in favor of the Palestinians, especially in preparation for the vote to accept “Palestine” as a full UN member (al-Hayat al-Jadeeda, June 4, 2023).
- In the meantime, according to reports, other cities have decided to sever relations with Israel. The Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), which manages the BDS movement, welcomed the decisions (Wafa, May 17 and 31, 2023).
- Edmilson Rodrigues, mayor of Belém in the State of Pará, Brazil, announced the freeze of establishment relations with Israel, including the cancellation of the twin cities agreement with Tel Aviv, in response to what he claimed was “the apartheid crime against the Palestinians and the repeated violations of Palestinian rights.”

The committee called on the PA to adopt the administrative prisoners’ demands and to activate all their diplomatic tools for exerting pressure on Israel (Wafa and Safa, June 5, 2023).
