Jerusalem Terror Victim in Critical Condition After Stabbing

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

A 25-year-old Jerusalem yeshiva student was stabbed in the neck Thursday around noontime by a 19-year-old Arab terrorist on Bar Lev Street near the Israel Police national headquarters.

The public is being asked to pray for Aron Moshe Chaim ben Chana, the Israeli student who is currently hospitalized in critical condition at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center as a result of the attack.

The terrorist, a resident of an eastern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood, attempted to first grab the weapon of a nearby security officer, but failed to steal it. He then pulled a knife and stabbed the yeshiva student.

Special forces who were on patrol in the area tackled the terrorist and took him into custody. A second person was injured during that struggle.

The attack took place at a Jerusalem Light Rail stop near Ammunition Hill, where approximately one year ago, an Arab terrorist also attacked Israelis who were standing at a Light Rail stop nearby.

Thursday’s victim was treated at the scene by Magen David Adom medics and then evacuated — with the knife still in his body — to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center. He was sedated and placed on a respirator, medics said.

The second victim was also treated for less serious wounds sustained during his struggle with the terrorist.

Light Rail service was temporarily suspended to allow security personnel to gather evidence at the site and conduct their investigation.

Service has been resumed.

Arabs Attack Jewish Hikers on Jerusalem Day

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

A Jewish hiking club came under attack by Arabs in Jerusalem’s Shiloach (Silwan) neighborhood.

The club, Amitim L’tiyulim, one of the largest hiking clubs in Israel, with over 10,000 members, began their hike at Jerusalem’s Ammunition Hill, going through Mount Scopus and ending at Sultan’s Pool.

The club hikes all over the country.

Every week they pick a new trail, in which to discover and investigate the land of Israel.

But as the 240 hikers in this particular trek crossed through the Shiloach neighborhood, in the old Yemenite village, they were attacked by Arab stone throwers, and one hiker, Yaakov Lubeton (32) suffered a head injury.

The group called for a paramedic, who treated the injured man, and Border Police also arrived to secure the area.

Amit Ararat, one of the founders of the hiking club, told JewishPress.com that despite the attack, the group decided to carry on, and they continued with their hike to discover and investigate Jerusalem.

Funeral for Karen Yemima HY”D [photos]

Monday, October 27th, 2014

The funeral of Karen Yemima Mosquera was held Monday night, after midnight, starting at the Shamgar Funeral Home and ending on the Mount of Olives, where she was buried.

Hundreds of people attended the funeral.

Karen Yemima, an Olah Chadasha, was in Israel as part of her conversion process to Judaism. She died on Sunday, after being critically wounded in the Jerusalem Light Rail terror attack last Wednesday. In that attack, an Arab terrorist drove onto the train platform and ran over 9 people, killing Karen Yemima, and 3 month old Chaya Zissel Braun.

The state of Israel flew in Karen Yemima’s family from Ecuador following the attack.

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and the Ecuadorian ambassador to Israel were at the funeral.

The funeral of Karen Yemima was delayed by an hour, as the family of the terrorist planned their funeral at the same time, and police were concerned the terrorist’s funeral would exhibit the typical Arab violence associated with the funeral of killed terrorists, and they did not want any disruptions to Karen Yemima’s funeral or danger to the participants.

The funeral for the terrorist was held under heavy police guard with only a few dozen participants as the police demanded.

But dozens of other Arabs in the Shiloach (Silwan) did go wild while the funeral was going on, shooting fireworks at police. Police responded with riot dispersal tools.

Second Victim From Jerusalem Light Rail Terror Attack Dies

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

Karen Yemima Muskara (22), a tourist from Ecuador, is the second victim to die from last week’s terror attack on the Jerusalem Light Rail platform near Ammunition Hill. She was being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem following the attack.

The victim was in Israel, and in the process of converting to Judaism. [We have a reader report that she completed her conversion to Judaism and was just waiting to receive her Teudat Zehut – Israeli ID card.]

She will be buried tonight, Sunday, at 12:30am (time updated). The funeral will start at the Shamgar Funeral Home and then head to the Mount of Olives.

The public is asked to go to the funeral.

The terrorist, Abdel Rahman al-Shaludi, also killed 3 month old Chaya Zissel Braun when he drove his car onto the train platform, running down nine commuters.

Shaludi, a member of Hamas, was subsequently shot by a policeman and died a few hours later in the hospital.

Following his death, Arabs in eastern Jerusalem began to riot again.

Violent Arabs Again Target Jerusalem Light Rail

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Jerusalem Arabs are continuing to target the Jerusalem Light Rail in violence intended to ensure the transit system will “never pass through Shuafat,” a northern Arab suburb of the capital.

Shuafat is also home to the family of 16 year old Muhammad Abu Khdeir, who was murdered last week. Six Jewish suspects have been taken into custody in connection with the case, and three have reportedly confessed to the crime.

Three Light Rail stops were utterly destroyed last week by Arab rioters, despite the fact that the rail is used by Arab commuters on a daily basis, as well as Jews, to reach their jobs in the city.

Nevertheless, extremist Arabs have said they are determined to destroy the Light Rail’s infrastructure to ensure the rail system cannot pass through Shuafat “ever.” Officials, meanwhile, have said it will take months to repair the damage to the stops once the violence has ceased.

The route of the Jerusalem Light Rail currently ends at Ammunition Hill (Givat HaTachmoshit), as it is no longer possible to use the infrastructure at Shuafat and Beit Hanina. This also cuts off access for the numerous Jewish residents who live in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Neve Yaakov.
