Why did the Israelis soldiers open fire with deadly force, killing 9 and wounding at least 30? Why the over-reaction, even if they were being attacked? Why not fire into the air? Surrender might be a logical response to unexpected resistance--especially given that the whole operation was illegal and they knew it.
