Outlawed Islamic Movement Head Arrested Where Arab Hunger-Striker is Hospitalized

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

The head of the outlawed Islamic Movement in Israel, Sheikh Raed Salah, was arrested Thursday afternoon at HaEmek Medical Center in Afula, according to local sources.

Hunger-striking prisoner and Palestinian Authority journalist Mohammed al-Qik is hospitalized at the medical center.

It is not clear what Salah was doing at the hospital or why he was taken into custody.

The medical center has become the site for numerous protests by Arabs expressing solidarity with al-Qik as he continues his hunger strike, hoping to win freedom from administrative detention. Al-Qik was taken into custody last November. The court was shown classified evidence indicating he is an “active Hamas agent involved in operational terror,” according to a decision by the court to deny a petition for release.

On that basis, Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled Wednesday that al-Qik will not be allowed to go free, regardless of what path he chooses. “His life is in his own hands,” wrote the panel of judges in their decision.

Alert Israelis Foil Terror Stabbing Attack in Afula

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Israeli citizens stopped what might have been a real tragedy in Afula Tuesday evening when they spotted three suspicious-looking young Arab men on Arlozorov Street.

Israel Police officers launched a search for the suspects and within minutes had stopped and searched the trio when they spotted one throwing away an object, which turned out to be a large butcher knife.

The other two men likewise were carrying matching butcher knives, sharpened in clear readiness for an attack.

All three men lacked entry and identification documents and were residents of the Palestinian Authority city of Jenin.

They were immediately arrested and taken to the local police station for questioning.

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Nine Israeli police officers were wounded and a 20-year-old Arab terrorist was killed Thursday evening in clashes that took place in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

Masked Arabs attempted to block Israeli security personnel from entering the neighborhood to search the home of the terrorist who stabbed a yeshiva student earlier in the day at a Light Rail station in the capital.

The rioting Arabs hurled firebombs and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) at the security forces.

Also Thursday, a 20-year-old Jewish man was stabbed by an Arab terrorist in the northern Israeli town of Afula. A few hours later, an IDF soldier was stabbed twice in the chest in another terror attack in the same town. According to Yossi Fahima, director of Magen David Adom emergency services in Afula, the victim was conscious when he was evacuated to a nearby medical center in serious condition.

The terrorist was captured and arrested within minutes of the attack. “The terrorist was not wounded, other than from blows he received from civilians, and [he] was rescued from the angry mob,” Fahima said.
