1 Judge Out in Manslaughter Trial of IDF Soldier

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

One of the judges has been recused in the manslaughter trial of an IDF soldier who shot and killed an injured Arab terrorist in Hebron.

Lt. Col. Yogev Yifrah, one of a panel of three judges in the military court, was removed due to his prior acquaintance with a witness who is slated to testify in the case, according to Walla!

Sgt. Elor Azaria is accused of killing the terrorist after he was already on the ground and disabled moments after he and a second terrorist had stabbed an IDF soldier in Hebron.

The trial is scheduled to continue as soon as Yifrah is replaced with another judge, by the president of the Jaffa Military Court, Col. Maya Heller.

Israel Demolishes Home of Henkins’ Hamas Killer

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

IDF soldiers and engineers demolished the family home of Hamas operative Zir Ziyad Jamal Amar on Tuesday.

The family home of Rajeb Ahmed Mohammed Aliwa, the mastermind behind the attack, has already been demolished.

Amar was one of several terrorists in the Hamas cell responsible for the murder of Neria residents Rabbi Eitam and Na’ama Henkin as they traveled a road in Samaria last October.

The couple was shot to death before the horrified eyes of their four children while driving the road between the Jewish communities of Elon Moreh and Itamar.

The children, though badly traumatized, were miraculously not physically harmed.

Israeli security forces hunted down the terrorists involved in the attack – a Hamas cell from the Shechem area – and captured them several days later.

A fund has been set up for the future care of the four orphans who survived the attack.

Daphna Meir’s Arab Killer is Convicted in Military Court

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

The killer of 39-year-old Otniel resident Daphna Meir, z’l, was convicted in a military court, the IDF spokesperson announced Tuesday.

A 16-year-old resident of the Palestinian Authority town of Yatta at the time he murdered the wife and mother of six, the Arab terrorist attacked Meir in her kitchen this past January.

Meir, a nurse in the neurosurgery unit at Soroka Medical Center in Be’er Sheva, tried to fight him off as he stabbed her in the head and upper body. Three of her children were home at the time, and heard the sounds of their mother being attacked.

The screams of her oldest daughter at home at the time prompted the terrorist to flee, while Meir called security forces and reported the attack. Medics came promptly but were unable to save her.

Meir was known for her strength and courage, but also for her serenity and leadership in the community. Two of her six children were foster children. Her husband told visitors during the shiva mourning period that the family wanted to focus on healing and “lifting up the Jewish people,” rather than avenging her death.
