The Times of Israel reports: Senior Fatah official Jibril Rajoub was involved on Wednesday in an altercation with Israeli Border Police troops in the Old City of Hebron, during which he yelled at troops who briefly stopped a member of his group.
Rajoub was accompanying visiting Omani Foreign Minister Yussef bin Alawi on a tour of the city. The confrontation, which was captured on video, began when a Border Police officer “intercepted” a Palestinian accompanying Rajoub and the Omani minister, witnesses said.

During the altercation, Rajoub shouted at an officer: “Shut up, go to hell!” Rajoub also called the female officer “impudent.” He was also heard on video calling another Border Police soldier “crazy.”
