Sunday, Feb. 14, will go down as a landmark day in the terror campaign the Palestinians have been waging against Israel for five months. It marked the latest, deliberately ramped-up phase: After advancing from rocks, stabbings, car rammings and teen attacks, through the stage of loners to gangs of two and three, this week, it moved up to shooting and explosive devices.

A Turkish embassy spokesman in Tel Aviv said the incident of Aug. 17 began when a man broke into the building with a knife by jumping over the outer fence. He was shot in the leg inside the building after taking two hostages and threatening to kill them and set it on fire if he was denied asylum in Turkey. He was later identified as a Palestinian called Nadiv Injessa, 32, from Ramallah. He was released from jail a few weeks ago after serving time for various offenses including breaking into the UK embassy four years ago and demanding asylum there too.
