IDF Won’t Do this after ‘Peace': 11 Terrorists Arrested in Night Raids

Israeli forces arrested 11 Palestinians in overnight detention raids across Judea and Samaria early Tuesday morning, Ma’an and an IDF Spokeswoman reported.

Local Arabs told Ma’an that Israeli troops stormed the Samarian city of Nablus early Tuesday and detained three youths suspected of terror activities.

Several Israeli military vehicles drove through the al-Dahiya and al-Taawon neighborhoods in the city after midnight and detained Anan Mahir Ubeid, Majdi Akkubah, and Ismail Aukal, locals said.

Meanwhile, in the Jenin district, locals said Israeli forces raided the village of Jabaa and detained four young terror suspects. The soldiers entered several homes and a bakery, to arrest Ayman Fashafsha, Ahmad Khalilya, Shalash Shalash, and Hasan Khalilya.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said altogether three Arabs were detained in Jabaa, two in Nablus, two in the village of Qatanna near Ramallah, one in Dura near Hebron, two in Hebron, and one in Tubas.

As long as it is still in charge of Judea and Samaria, the IDF will be able to continue to carry out these raids, which are the foundation of its strategy to choke the terrorist infrastructure before it can be established. This winning strategy has been in place since March of 2002, when a seder night Hamas suicide bombing attack on Park Hotel in Netanya killed 30 and injured 40.

Since then, Israel has been successful in maintaining an effective network of informants, with current intelligence being applied to thwart terrorist attempts and to arrest new and emerging “activists” before they get to murder Jews.

But as soon as the situation will change, God forbid, the effectiveness of this strategy will be degraded, since every IDF entry into the same towns and villages will count as an invasion of a sovereign state.

Pass it on.

    There will never be peace, the past testifies to that. So it’simportant that the Israeli Defense Force stay as diligent as they are now.

  2. Artie Brown says:

    The article should state in the headline that Israel will not be “legally allowed” to do abort terrorist threats if this terrorist breeding ground comes under the title of a palestinisn state.

  3. Great!-11 less murders on the street

  4. Tongapxp Pxp says:

    I was not sure, so went to wikipedia where is stated Nablus is located in Palestina, so, why and what for the “idfs stormed the city” who gave them that right?

  5. Anonymous says:

    There has never in history been peace between Arab and Jew. The negotiations are a waste of effort. The arrest of these terrorists is also a waste, because they will be released in the next "piece" talks. Better to bulldoze their homes. That would be a permanent message to the Arabs.

  6. Under the current situation there will never be peace no matter how much Secretary Kerry pressures and threatens Israel. The hobby of these people is not to work and enjoy life but to kill and the target are the Jews who want to live in peace and enjoy life, which they want to disrupt and ruin and they DO. Until education is changed and the hate and incitement ends and forgotten, and that will take at least 2 generations to become adults, the IDF must continue on the same path. What will make it all easier is if Israel puts the entire Judea and Samaria area under Israeli law and then these scum savages will have to live under that law and obey it or else!
    It is tiring to continuously talk about this issue and dance around it; time to take action that will make the difference.

  7. Invasion in which sovereighn state?.
