Who shall live and who shall die?

The IDF has removed some roadblocks from highways in Judea and Samaria and one cannot help but wonder when the next terror attack will result. Anyone want to take bets?
In total, roadblocks were lifted from six roads near Tulkarem, Nablus, Balata and Ariel.

Sources in the civil administration said that the decision to remove the roadblocks was made recently in line with government policy for alleviating restrictions on Palestinians in the West Bank due to the drop in terrorist activity.

“Lately, in light of increased stability and calm in the region, the IDF and the civil administration are making efforts to facilitate Palestinian movement throughout the territories,” one official said.

Since 2008, the IDF has evacuated some 30 manned checkpoints throughout the West Bank, leaving 11, mostly located along the Green Line.

“Nowadays, Palestinians can travel from northern Samaria to southern Judea within record time while crossing maybe one checkpoint, when three years ago it would have taken a few hours and they would have had to cross several checkpoints,” another officer said.

Israel is also continuing to allow Palestinian battalions to train in Jordan. Eight battalions have already deployed in the West Bank, consisting of about 4,000 policemen trained by the United States.
What could go wrong?
