Alert IDF Force Near Ni’ilin Prevents Terror Attack on Jewish Town in Samaria

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Alert IDF soldiers near Ni’ilin prevented a major terrorist attack after the start of Yom Kippur, as Arab terrorists opened fire Tuesday night at an IDF force operating near the Arab village of Ni’ilin. No casualties were reported among the Israeli forces.

“Last night our observation post identified suspects near the fence in the area of Ni’ilin,” an IDF spokesperson told the Hebrew-language 0404 website. “The suspects opened fire at military forces who rushed to the area, but did not injure or kill anyone. IDF troops returned fire, and the suspects fled.

“Forces from the Ephraim Regional Brigade searched the area and captured a number of suspects, who were then transferred to security personnel for interrogation,” the IDF said.

According to 0404, the IDF observation post and battalion forces also prevented a infiltration and terrorist attack that was to be carried out by Arab operatives at a Jewish community in Samaria.

Road Terror Heats Up: Double Paint-Bottle Attack on Israeli Bus Near Tekoa

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Arab terrorists hurled two paint-filled bottles at an Israeli bus traveling the road near the Jewish community of Tekoah late Monday night, on the eastern side of Gush Etzion in Judea, according to Hatzoloh emergency response service of Judea and Samaria.

Such an attack can be particularly deadly.

When a “paint bottle’ shatters upon impact as it strikes the vehicle, the paint splatters. Not only can the shattering glass injure the passengers and/or the driver — in addition to causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle — but the paint can cover the windshield and also windows, thus blinding the driver’s ability to see the road and other things around.

No information was available on whether any of the passengers were physically injured in the attack.

But it wasn’t the first attack of the day by any means, nor the first attack of the day near Tekoa, either. Earlier in the evening, Arab terrorists attacked Israeli motorists traveling near the junction leading to Tekoa. The passengers were not physically injured but the vehicle was damaged in the attack.

On the western side of Gush Etzion, Arab terrorists firebombed an Israeli public bus also Monday night as it traveled past the Al Fuwar junction near Kiryat Arba and Hebron. No word on the status of the vehicle, but no physical injuries reported among the passengers.

Stone-Throwing Terrorists Attack Rachel’s Tomb

Friday, September 23rd, 2016

A gang of some 15 Arab terrorists hurled stones Thursday afternoon at worshipers who were entering and leaving the Tomb of Rachel, on the outskirts of Bethlehem, a few minutes south of Jerusalem.

The sacred grave site of the Biblical matriarch is frequented by Jewish women in particular, who appeal to the soul of their Jewish ancestor for intervention with God on their behalf.

Israeli security forces used riot dispersal methods in order to bring the violence to a rapid conclusion. No injuries were reported and all personnel reported safely to base.

IDF Seals Off Arab Village of Bani Naim After Wave of Terror Attacks [video]

Saturday, September 17th, 2016

IDF forces have surrounded and sealed off the Palestinian Authority village of Bani Naim, located about five minutes south of Kiryat Arba in the wake of a terror attack committed by two of its residents. Only “humanitarian” cases are allowed to leave.

The move comes as part of the decision by the IDF to beef up its presence in the Hebron area after an escalation in terror attacks within 48 hours, three out of five of which took place in the city.

One of the attacks involved a vicious stabbing of an IDF soldier Saturday morning in Hebron.

The IDF deployed the Shimshon Battalion and the Kefir Brigade in Hebron. Brigadier-General Lior Carmeli, Commander of the Judea and Samaria Division, toured the locations of the terror attacks that took place in the area.

Bani Naim is the same village that was home to the terrorist who murdered 13-year-old Hallel Ariel, stabbing her to death in her bed after climbing in her bedroom window the morning after her school year ended.

Two terrorists carried out a vehicle ramming attack at Elias Junction entrance to Kiryat Arba just prior to the start of the Sabbath a few minutes before sundown on Friday.

IDF troops guarding the area shot the terrorists. The male terrorist was killed, the female terrorist was wounded and taken to the hospital. Three Israeli teenagers suffered minor physical injuries and major trauma; they had to be treated for both as a result of the attack.

The Elias junction is a hitchhiking post in Judea next to a Paz gas station on Highway 60.
