Jews driving through Hebron on Sunday morning were surprised to be hit by a barrage of rocks. Many private cars as well as a bus were hit at the Erez junction, near the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

One of the vehicles had its windshield shattered. No one was injured, thank God.

The drivers were surprised to realize the rocks were being thrown at them from behind a TIPH vehicle, which was being used for cover.

Temporary International Presence in Hebron (TIPH) is an international civilian observer mission stationed in the city of Hebron. It was first established in Hebron in 1994, and then shut down a few months later. After multiple attempts, the temporary presence was more permanently reestablished  in 1997 and continues operating until today, with a temporary break in 2006 during the Palestinian riots and attack on TIPH headquarters.

The stated mandate of the mission is “to promote by their presence a feeling of security to the Palestinians of Hebron and to help to promote stability in the city.”

It appears that TIPH is doing their job very well, as these Palestinian Authority citizens felt very secure in using a TIPH vehicle as cover for attacking Jews.

Following the attack, a number of the Jewish citizens began to chase after the stone throwers, but the latter managed to escape into Palestinian Authority controlled Hebron (H1) which makes up more than 80% of this ancient Jewish city, and where Jews are forbidden to enter under Palestinian Authority Apartheid laws.

According to its mission statement, TIPH monitors the situation in Hebron and reports on breaches of the agreements on Hebron between the Israeli and the Palestinian side, as well as international humanitarian law and international recognized human rights standards.

Please inquire at +970-2-222-4445 for general information, and to report this incident (24/7) try +970-1-800-100 600. Their email is info@tiph.org.

    Get some MRAPs ,

  2. Do Israelis carry guns for protection?

  3. Never trust any organisation which is supposed to monitor any infringement of any agreement.
    If it hurts the Jews, then it is good for the terrorists.

    Send them to hell, and get them out of Hebron.

  4. Sounds like a waste of money to have people driving around indefinitely with no real purpose. Who's paying for this service? And shouldn't their mission be over now that the Palestinians in Hebron feel secure enough to throw rocks at Israelis? If I was scared of the IDF, I wouldn't throw rocks at them, so their work is over, isn't it? Or is this part of the game "Just the TIPH?"

  5. Lisa Kamins says:

    they are not humanatarian vehicles. They are a shield for the philistines.
    They should be removed from Israel like in 1967 and never to return. Zahal is the only shield to be operating in the Jewish State of Israel.
