More violence in "Occupied Territories"

This yesterday:
Palestinian Police Storm Parliament

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Dozens of disgruntled Palestinian police officers stormed the parliament building Monday, complaining they do not have enough firepower to confront Hamas, and legislators upset over the growing chaos demanded that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas reshuffle the Cabinet and fire his security chief.

The protest and parliament's rebuke of Abbas came a day after the worst fighting between Hamas and police in nearly a decade. Three people were killed, including the deputy police chief in the Shati refugee camp near Gaza City, who was shot in the head after he and his men ran out of bullets during a Hamas assault on their station.

And now this today:
Knife attacker killed in W Bank

A Palestinian woman has been shot dead by Israeli troops at a military checkpoint in the northern West Bank after she stabbed a female soldier.

The army said the woman took out a knife and attacked the soldier, lightly wounding her in the face.

Other soldiers shot the attacker in the legs, the army said. Both women were treated at the scene, but the Palestinian later died.

But is anyone listening?
