IDF Stops Jerusalem Arab Teenager with Automatic Machine Gun

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Alert Military and Border Police officers caught a 15-year-old Jerusalem Arab early Monday morning trying to enter the city with an automatic weapon.

IDF soldier Daniel Malkha was on duty at the Shuafat checkpoint at 2:45 a.m. Monday when he asked the teenager to go through a routine check with a metal detector.

The device sounded a warning that the teenager was carrying a metallic object, and when a second check revealed the same result, Malkha asked the suspect to take off his sweat jacket.

The teenager was seen with a Carl Gustav automatic gun stuck in his pants, and Malkha and his commander disarmed the boy.

He now is being interrogated by security officials.

Officers noted that there are “repetitive attempts” to attack Israelis.

Below the picture of the gun is a video of a Carl Gustav assault rifle that was captured in the Six-Day War in 1967.

Update: Four Hurt in Suspected Gush Etzion Hit-and-Run Terror Attack

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Four young boys have been injured by a vehicle in Gush Etzion in what is suspected as a terrorist hit-and-attack.

Security forces have found and are questioning the Palestinian Authority driver of the black Subaru car that hit the youth but have not confirmed that it was a terrorist attack. However, an eyewitness at the scene said it appeared that the driver intentionally hit the boys before speeding off.

The vehicle struck the victims at the entrance to the community of Alon Shvut. One person suffered moderate injuries, and three others were injured lightly. They were standing at the same spot where Hams terrorists last summer kidnapped and later murdered three yeshiva students.

In a separate attack, two people were lightly injured in an Arab rock-throwing attack on their tourist bus.

Nearby, an explosive device reportedly was thrown from a house in Bethlehem over the wall separating the city from Rachel’s Tomb (Kever Rachel).

Security forces shot the terrorist, whose condition is not yet known.

Police Appeal Decision Allowing Glick Onto Temple Mount

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

The Israeli police have appealed the decision of a Jerusalem court that granted human rights activist, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, permission to once again go up to the Temple Mount.

The police also asked permission to prevent Glick from going up until they receive an answer to their appeal, according to a YNet report.

The police claim, Glick’s “going up to the Temple Mount could lead to riots and a public safety risk.”

The soft-spoke Rabbi miraculously survived an Arab assassination attempt in October last year in Jerusalem, when he was shot four times at close range.

Glick’s primary source of income is working as a tour guide on the Temple Mount.

Unfortunately, the police would prefer to prevent Glick from working and entering the Temple Mount, than dealing with the Muslim instigators that harass him and other Jewish visitors to the Jewish people’s holiest site.

Police Arrest Suspect in Jerusalem Hit-and-Run Terrorist Attack

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

Police and Border Police Monday morning captured the suspect in Saturday night’s hit-and-run terrorist attack that wounded four police officers, including a 20-year-old woman, with light to moderate injuries.

He is about 30 years old and is from the Shuafat neighborhood in northern Jerusalem.

The attack in eastern Jerusalem capped off a day of terror that spread from Ma’aleh Adumim to the capital.

The hit-and-run terrorist was driving his Skoda car from the area of the Mount of Olives (Har HaZeitim) when he saw a group of policemen on the sidewalk. The driver drove over the curb, hit the victims and escaped as police shot at the vehicle, which later was found abandoned.

Other Arabs joined the culture of violence by throwing rocks at rescue vehicle and at the car of Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, who arrived at the scene. He was not injured, but his car sustained light damage, as did the motorcycle of a volunteer rescue worker.

Earlier in the day, approximately two dozen Arabs were injured by police  trying to disperse riots in Jerusalem’s A-Tur neighborhood, which the past several months has been a hotbed of terrorist activity.

The riots followed two stabbing attacks by Jerusalem and Palestinian Authority terrorists. Police killed a terrorist, reportedly 17 years old, near Maaleh Adumim after he stabbed a Border Police officer in the neck. He is being treated in the hospital for light to moderate wounds.

The family of the attacker claimed that the terrorist really was not a terrorist and did not attack police, who they said “executed” him.

A state of mourning was called in A-Tur, and a general strike left schools and institutions closed.

Continuing widespread violence in eastern Jerusalem has included more rock-throwing attacks on the city’s light rail system. Violence is fueled by terrorist cells and also by Palestinian Authority media that repeatedly describe Arab attackers as innocents.

WAFA, the official Palestinian Authority news site, reported Sunday that Mohammed abu Ghannam, the father of the 17-year-old killed in the incident near Maaleh Adumim, “expressed his belief that the Israeli version of such incidents is intended to acquit Israeli soldiers and whitewash their crimes.”

The father said, “One who attempts to stab soldiers doesn’t wield a large knife and start running toward armed soldiers.”

He did not offer a different method of how terrorists attack with a knife.
