Arab Terrorists Escalate Attacks on Israeli Drivers After UN Resolution 2334

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

In the wake of UN Security Council resolution 2334(2016), Arab terrorists are becoming even bolder, with stoning attacks against Israeli drivers escalating Monday even further.

Below is a list of some of the attacks that took place on Monday:

Arab terrorists smashed the windshield of an Israeli Egged bus in a stoning attack Monday night at the intersection of Uzi Narkiss and Neve Yaakov in Jerusalem. Miraculously, the driver managed to keep the bus moving, and none of the passengers were physically injured in the attack.

Arab sources reported an improvised explosive device was thrown at Israeli military forces Monday afternoon during operations near the northern entrance to the town of Bethlehem. No injuries or damage reported and all personnel returned safely to base.

A gang of some 15 Arab terrorists attacked a transport van filled with Jewish students on Monday morning. The van came under a hail of rocks as it was traveling the road north of the Adorim junction. None of the passengers were physically injured, but there was no word on whether the vehicle was damaged.

Terrorists also attacked an Israeli bus driver Monday late morning on the Gush Etzion-Hebron Highway, also known as Highway 60. The attackers hurled stones at the bus as it passed the Arab village of Beit Omar. None of the passengers were physically injured, but again, no word on damage to the bus. Beit Omar is known as a terrorist stronghold in the Judea region and a hotspot for stoning attacks on Israeli drivers.

There were more stoning attacks at midday on Israeli drivers traveling the Gush Etzion-Hebron Highway between Beit Omar and the junction to the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur, south of Gush Etzion, 20 minutes’ drive from Jerusalem. No one was physically injured, but at least one car was damaged in the attack.

Ten minutes after that attack, Arab terrorists were back on the same road, attempting to kill Israeli drivers by stoning. This time the ambush took place south of Beit Omar, and from an easterly direction. The driver whose car was hit reported no physical injuries to passengers in the vehicle, but the car was damaged.

Meanwhile, north of Jerusalem, Arab terrorists were stoning Israeli drivers between the Jewish community of Neve Tzuf and the community of Nahliel. No physical injuries were reported there.

In the Binyamin region, four terrorists were spotted as they were stoning Israeli drivers on the road between the Jewish communities of Beit El and Psagot. There were no physical injuries, but no word on damage to the vehicles.

Closer to Jerusalem in the early afternoon, terrorists hurled rocks at an Israeli bus traveling along Highway 443, known as the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem Highway. The attack occurred near the A-Tira Bridge. No one was physically injured in the attack.

by Ilana Messika
The Jerusalem District Court has Abu Dis resident sentenced Mohammad Badr to 16 years in prison following his conviction for stabbing an Israeli on HaNevi’im Street in Jerusalem last May. One person was wounded in the attack.

Badr was sentenced on three separate counts of attempted murder, possession of a weapon (he was carrying a knife) and illegal entry into Israel.

“According to the facts of the indictment, and on the basis of the confession and conviction, the suspect entered Israel illegally and decided to stab a Jew with the aim of killing him,” the judge stated in the verdict. “The defendant’s actions . . . were very serious, which miraculously did not cause fatal casualties.”

The Court added that Badr’s attack was part of the wave of terror attacks that swept the country beginning in September 2015.

In addition to his 16-year prison term, Badr was also ordered to pay compensation in the amount of NIS 80,000 as part of a plea bargain.

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.
