4 Wounded in Gush Etzion Road Terror Attack

Earlier this week in Judea, a senior police official was murdered, his wife and son wounded in a road terror attack near Hevron.
Arab road terrorists often use huge boulders to create obstacle courses in the road to slow down drivers -- and then hurl huge rocks at their hapless victims in the hope of murdering them.

Four Israeli citizens were wounded Thursday morning in a road terror attack near the Jewish community of Tekoa.

The victims were traveling in a car with Israeli license plates when they were attacked by Arabs hurling a barrage of heavy rocks and boulders.

The windows of the vehicle were smashed by the heavy rocks, and four of the people riding in the car were wounded by flying glass and by the hard missiles with which they were struck.

All four were taken to a medical clinic in the nearby Jewish city of Efrat, about ten minutes away from Jerusalem, local sources said.

Just yesterday (Wednesday) Israel Police Lt.-Col. Baruch Mizrahi was laid to rest in the police cemetery at Mt. Herzl, a victim of a terror attack in Judea on nearby Highway 35, on the outskirts of Hevron. Mizrahi was murdered and his pregnant wife and 9 year old son injured when a gunman shot them with an AK-47 assault rifle from the side of the road as they were traveling to attend a Passover seder in Kiryat Arba. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Tekoa is located on the opposite side of the sector, among the hills of eastern Gush Etzion in the shadow of the Herodian, the burial place of the Biblical King Herod.

The community is situated next to the ancient village of Teq’ua, now an Arab village. A number of residents in the two communities have quietly established good relations. Ironically, it was Teq’ua residents who called friends in Tekoa for help when they came under missile fire from Gaza during the last mini-war, Operation Pillar of Defense.

  7. animals afraid to show their faces

  8. Get these guys and put them in jail or do whatever you wAnt with them. Throw a boulder on them is a good idea for starters

  9. Sure, make peace with the Palestinian scum so then they can fire rockets into Israel. Why even bother?

  10. Stay home, be vigilant, God bless!

  11. Karen Bryant says:

    God’s the one that will have to deal with them. They will ultimately face His judgment.

  18. Tony Mark says:

    Animals have more principals…

  19. Tony Mark says:

    Animals have more principals…

  20. My prayers go out to those who were injured. When can we learn peace and humility?

  21. I think that it is now time for the government of Israel to bring in the DEATH penalty for terrorists that kill civilians, and in any so called Peace talks offer to return their coffins ONLY after the Palestinians have made Peace with Israel

  22. Anonymous says:

    The death penalty will not work. The government would never enforce it and, if it did, would only encourage world-wide protest. Rather, it should restore the checkpoints that it took down and should pass legislation specifically authorizing motorists to use firearms against those hurling rocks or firebombs at them. And it should deploy armed decoy motorists to fire at those who are attacking motorists.

  23. And what about ourselves? It is time for some soul searching! In Deuteronomy 7:2 God commands us not to make any covenant with the locals. And our leaders are on their knees begging them to sit with us! What can we expect, beside the due punishment?

  24. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Hashem will avenge the blood of His People B"H

  25. Sequeira Mendes says:

    Those people are very well behind the Wall.
