IDF Arrests PA Terror Cop’s Brother, Revokes Family Work Permit

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Israeli forces have arrested the brother of a Palestinian Authority special forces police officer who attacked IDF soldiers at the ‘Focus’ checkpoint outside Ramallah a day earlier.

“Manning a checkpoint is a challenging mission,” said IDF Spokesperson Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner in a post on Facebook. “Hours of mundane service watching vehicles go by, looking for suspicious movements. Hours and hours of being prepared to respond to that split moment when an attacker engages.”

Muhammad Turkman was killed by the other Israeli soldiers at the checkpoint when he shot and wounded the three IDF troops in Monday’s attack.

His brother, 23-year-old Muhannad Turkman was arrested less than 24 hours later, in a raid that took place in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.

IDF soldiers also revoked the Israeli work permits issued to the family during the raid at their home in Qabatiya, south of Jenin, said the IDF.

Local residents hurled stones and cinder blocks at the soldiers who came to make the arrest and burned tires in the street. They also threw firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at the troops.

One of the Israeli soldiers wounded in Monday’s attack by Turkman’s brother sustained a gunshot wound to the hip and was listed in serious condition, but he has since been upgraded to fair condition at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

The two other soldiers sustained shrapnel wounds and are listed in good condition, medical personnel said.

Ram-and-Stab Terror Attack at Checkpoint Near Ofra

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

An Arab terrorist tried to kill IDF soldiers over the Sabbath using his car and a meat cleaver in an attempted ram-and-stab attack at a security checkpoint in Samaria.

The terrorist tried to run the soldiers over near the Jewish community of Ofra, northeast of the Palestinian Authority capital city of Ramallah, then got out of the vehicle brandishing a meat cleaver.

“Responding to the threat, the force fired towards the assailant,” said an IDF spokesperson. “The assailant then exited the vehicle … and attempted to stab the soldiers.”

The soldiers shot and “neutralized” the attacker, who presented an obvious, immediate threat.

“The assailant was evacuated to a hospital to receive medical treatment,” the IDF spokesperson added. He was taken in serious condition to Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center.

A short while prior to the attempted attack, gunshots were heard outside of Ofra, local sources reported.

Israeli security forces were investigating to see whether Arab terrorists attempted and failed to carry out a separate attack, according to the Hebrew-language 0404 website.

Arab Terror Stabber Sentenced to 17 Years, Fined NIS 50K

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

An Arab terrorist has been fined and sentenced to prison by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court after his conviction on charges of attempting to murder IDF soldier on December 27, 2015, near the Jerusalem Central Bus Station.

The 21-year-old soldier who was stabbed in the attack near the Center One shopping mall in the Romema neighborhood was moderately wounded. He was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center and later listed in stable condition.

The terrorist, 30-year-old Siyad Komboz, was found guilty of attempted murder and weapons possession along with a number of other serious charges. He confessed to the attack, telling his interrogators that he had wanted to kill Jews and “die as a shahid,” the Arabic word for “martyr.”

Komboz was sentenced to 17 years in prison and fined NIS 50,000. However, he will receive a generous monthly stipend for his “work” from the Palestinian Authority via the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) prisoner’s fund. It will equal or exceed the average monthly salary of most Arab citizens living in PA territories, as a reward for his efforts to murder an Israeli Jew. When he is released, the Palestinian Authority will also support his rehabilitation and guarantee him a job.
