IDF extracting an Israeli driver after accidentally entering a PA controlled area.

On Friday afternoon at 12:20 PM, an Israeli accidentally entered a Palestinian Authority controlled village in the Shomron. He called up the Shomron Moked (Security Center) and said that he didn’t know which village he was in.

The Shomron Emergency Rescue Unit and IDF began searching for him.

At 1:10 PM Shomron Emergency Rescue Unit identified his location, and that there were Palestinian Authority policemen next to him.

The IDF went into the village and extracted the driver and his car, unharmed.

In 2000, two Israelis who accidentally entered into Ramallah ended up lynched, mutilated, and murdered by the local Arabs.

  1. If we make a wrong turn, we’ll get murdered. Meanwhile hundreds of thousands of PA Arabs come into Israel every day to work, to shop, to get medical treatment, to go to the beach. Who’s the Apartheid regime?

  2. Having no relations to either Israelis or Palestinians, I'm puzzled that this is considered a rescue situation. Even the reference to something happening 14 years ago somewhere else does not add much "danger" to the scene, as it is described.

  3. Jens, I know it sounds strange, but there is danger. The example of 14 yeats ago shows the extreme. But very often there is an attempted stoning and a murder, so the example is given for that reason. I and my family on an outing also made a wrong turn, and not knowing the area, we went on, the road narrowing, just at the end of the road as we could see further down. we saw the road blocked with tires metal and other things to prevent us from continuing. From experience, we know that this is the prelude to stoning and we would no where to go. At that point an Israeli army jeep came out of a side road coming ahead of us.One man got out to go to us while his men saw to the clearing of the road. The officer who came to us chewed us out for coming down this road without a weapon or without regard to danger. We learned from this – not to go where we don't know where it leads, We were no lonber in the U.S. I never forgot the lesson

  4. I don't know why you are puzzled. "Palestinians' attack Jews on a daily basis. Their leadership glorifies this behavior.

    There are signs near the entrances to many arab villages that say that entry by Jews into these areas is illegal and life threatening.

    On Thursday a 20 year old Israeli girl walking alone was butchered to death by an Arab. Meanwhile an Israeli car was attacked by Arabs on highway 443.

    So yes, Jens, when Israelis find themselves in these situations, they need to be rescued.

    It is a sad and unfortunate fact that when Jews travel unprotected near Arabs anywhere in our land, that the Arabs often attack us.
