Mourners carry the body of Ahmad Al-Balboul to his funeral at Manger Square in Bethlehem. Al-Balboul, a fighter from the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, was killed along with three other militants by small arms fire the previous evening from undercover Israeli Special Forces as they waited in a car outside a bakery in Bethlehem. Such killings occur as part of Israel’s policy of ‘focused foiling’ otherwise known as targeted killing: The assassination of individuals considered to be engaged in activity that threatens the security of the Israeli state. 2008.
