Bomb Wounds One at Rachel’s Tomb

At just after 11:00 pm on Monday evening, a pipe-bomb was again thrown into the Rachel’s Tomb compound at the edge of Bethlehem, near Jerusalem.

This pipe-bomb, thrown over the security wall, landed in the upper parking lot, exploded, and wounded a 25 year old man.

The injured man was treated and then evacuated by a medical crew.

Firemen were called to the site to make sure a fire didn’t break out from the explosion.

IDF forces searched for the terrorists.

Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel) is one of the most ancient and important Jewish sites in Israel, and was not handed over to the Palestinian Authority during the Oslo Accords.

To protect the area from repeated attacks by Palestinian Authority terrorists, a large wall was built up around the tomb, parking lot, and road leading to the site.

    If Islam also believes that Abraham is their "father" as well (through Ishmael) this site should be holy to them as well. I think Israel needs to revisit International law: http://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/opinions/dont-confuse-me-with-the-facts-israel-and-international-law/2014/01/05/0/

  2. Nonsense! Its time to finish the job of settlement and throw the bums out…the face of terror is islam in all, ALL, of its manifestations; "They Must Go!"

  3. Gary Dalin says:

    The wall now needs a new fence 50 meters on Arab side to prevent this. Each time add another 50 meters.

  4. Larry Singleton says:

    Why are ANY holy sites given to these terrorists? Why they are in the Temple Mount is something I will never understand.

    Our mother Rachel weeps again for her children in abandoning her to the arab pagans who do not respect her and their history.

    Would you abandon YOUR mother to the philistines?
    Take it back and expel thephilistine pagans since their religion is Dagan who drinks blood which is what the philistines do.
