This morning, a Palestinian terrorist carried out a shooting attack at a security checkpoint that served as an entry point for workers from the territories adjacent to the community of Har Adar, near Jerusalem. A border police officer and two security guards were killed, and another Israeli was seriously injured.
Recent years have seen interesting developments in the evolution of legal and policy counter-terrorism initiatives at both the national and international levels. These developments have been partially driven by an earlier lack of legal frameworks for responding effectively to the bitter experience of terrorist attacks that have taken lives around the globe. The years since the watershed 9/11 attacks have also seen an upturn in counter-terrorism legislation at the national level and policy declarations at the international level, reflecting the expanding understanding on the part of lawmakers and political leaders that counter-terrorism efforts must be prioritized on legislative, policy and political agendas; supported by funding and personnel resources; and engaged with as a global strategic challenge.
