An IDF soldier was fired upon by Arab Terrorists and critically wounded in Hebron on Sunday evening.

Arab snipers fired on a military position, one soldier was hit in the neck and is in critical condition. The shooting was exactly where the baby, Shalhevet Pas, was killed years ago by an Arab sniper.

The soldier was airlifted to Hadassah Ein Karem hospital in Jerusalem.

The Hebron area is currently under complete lockdown and large security forces have gathered at the scene. Searches are underway for the attackers.

This attack takes place during the traditional Sukkot celebrations currently underway in Hebron.

  1. Mr Bibi N I really feel it is time for Israel to freeze peace talks. Abbas and his cronies and further the teenage thugs Abbas encourages to strike at Israel in the manner of geuarilla warfare since the opening of the talks. Israel there can be no two state solution under any circumstances, Arabs are totally untrustworthy, check out the Koran – lying behind Allahs name is permissable?

  3. When is enough enough? We abide evil in our midst and expect angels…this insanity will continue until when? For so long as any element of islam is among us we are doomed to continue on a misguided way…a way bereft of any sanity or logic!

  4. It's time to stand up to the weakling Obama. His Presidency is such a failed period in USA History that he's going to try and abuse Israel in some way to save his reputation. For Israel's sake and for the sake of sane Jews – tell Obam and his henchman NO. Palestinian behaviour has gone too far. Vivienne is correct and you Bibi and members of Knesset know it too.

  5. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Wake up…This talk about "Israel having a peace partner" is an arab fable

  6. carolinkc says:

    Freeze “peace” talks, do clean up in entire Arab area.

    Here’s a clue: assay and then remote-MINE the most likely sniper-hiding spots (and a few hidden security cameras wouldn’t hurt having up there, either).

    Jews have to learn to go after terrorists in Israel. Any one who is in suspicion should be offered to leave the country or be put under strict observance.

    I'm so sorry and our prayers are with him and his family
    God bless Israel. all our love to you all.

    Y the thought s only one way please view the coin both sides and then only judge it.

    carolinkc We think alike Carolinkc, Israel cannot continue to broker peace against this background of deliberate slaughter and cold blooded murder.  I believe the arabs have shot themselves in the foot and Kerry needs to cotton on.  Israel one Nation Arabs accept citizenship with grace or clear out once and for all.
