U.S. intelligence analysts conclude the Russian plane was not brought down by surfaceto-air missile. An American infrared satellite detected a heat flash at the same time and same
place over the Sinai as the plane, but no evidence a missile was involved. Analysts believe it
could have been some kind of explosion on the aircraft itself, either a fuel tank or a bomb.
U.S. officials do not rule out that ISIL could have been responsible for bringing down the
flight. (NBC News) (http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/russian-plane-crashes-in-thesinai/satellite-shows-heat-flash-when-russian-metrojet-plane-crashed-no-n456161) (ABC

One Palestinian is killed and three Israeli soldiers injured in two attacks in the West Bank.
According to the Israeli army, the Palestinian was shot dead after attempting to stab soldiers
at a military checkpoint near the Beit Einun village in Hebron. In a second incident in the
same area, a driver rammed and injured three Israeli paramilitary border policemen with his
car before fleeing the scene. None of the three were injured seriously. (The Daily Star)
