Egypt Cites ‘Existential Threat’ from ISIS, ‘Terror Groups’

Thursday, March 12th, 2015

Egyptian Interior Minister Magdi Abdel Ghaffer warned in a speech Wednesday that his nation is facing an “existential war” in its battle against “terrorist groups.”

Speaking to a meeting of Arab interior ministers in Algeria, Ghaffar urged Arab nations to use all their resources to counter the imminent danger. The terrorist organizations, he said, “not only aim to come to power but also to divide Arabic countries and destroy their military and security capabilities…”

The danger posed by fighters from Daesh, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), has escalated after local-area terror groups pledged allegiance to the organization, the state-run MENA news agency reported.

The Sinai-based Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis and similar local groups in Libya are now linked to Daesh, with Ansar having since changed name to “Sinai Province.”

Egypt proposed creating a joint Arab force to preserve Arab national security. The proposal is to be presented again at the Arab Summit, slated to take place later this month.

UPDATED: Arab Attacks Jerusalem Light Rail Guard – Get Taken Down [video]

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

CORRECTION: We initially reported this as two separate attacks. There was only one incident. There was some confusion as to the exact location from the different reports we received.

An Arab attacked a guard on the Jerusalem Light rail on Thursday morning, according to an 0404 News report.

The incident took place near Sha’ar Shechem (Damascus Gate) when an Arab tried to attack a Jerusalem Light Rail guard near the Old City.

Within seconds, the well-trained Jerusalem Light Rail guards had the man on the floor and handcuffed.

A Border Police patrol in the area then arrested the man.

The man who was arrested is reportedly supposed to be under house arrest for a separate security incident.

Jerusalem Light Rail’s New ‘Zero Tolerance’ for Arab Violence

Tuesday, October 21st, 2014

The CityPass company that owns and manages the Jerusalem Light Rail has implemented a new zero-tolerance policy for Arab violence aimed at the passenger line.

Guards on the train and inside train stations are now being instructed to act with zero tolerance against Arabs suspected of perpetrating attacks against the Light Rail.

Two Arab suspects were asked a short time ago to undergo a brief security check. They refused and instead attacked the guards. Within seconds, both found themselves on the ground, neutralized by the Light Rail guards, who held them until Israel Police arrived to take them into custody.

According to the Hebrew-language 0404 website, Long before the murder of Shuafat teen Mohamed Abu Kdeir this summer, Arabs attacked Light Rail guards, refused spot checks and cursed and attacked citizens riding on the train. They nevertheless were allowed to benefit from the service available to other riders.

Eyewitnesses told “0404” the suspects were screaming in order to create a provocation.

“No one started up with them,” one person said. “They attacked first, (when guards attempted a security check) and then they arrested them. They were screaming like crazy.”

Light Rail guards who are very professional and effective in their work have been given instructions that from this point forward, the safety and serenity of the riders on the train is to be maintained at all costs.

Terrorist Infiltrator Foiled Near Gaza Border

Sunday, September 28th, 2014

An armed Arab infiltrator was caught red-handed Sunday by the security coordinator of Shokeda religious moshav in southern Israel.

The suspect, who was carrying a knife and a hand drill, is believed to have sneaked in through the border in the Nachal Oz area. It is not yet known how he managed to get through the security fence and past the IDF lookouts.

He then walked over to Shokeda in the Sdot Negev Regional Council district, about seven kilometers (4.3 miles) from the Gaza border.

The suspect was turned over to security forces for further questioning.

The area’s kibbutzim and moshavim are usually filled to capacity with holiday tourists at this time of year. This year, however, they are still seeing vacancies, said Amit Lavkov, tourism association CEO.

“People want to make sure it’s really calm and the cease-fire has lasted,” Lavkov said. “There are fewer tourists than last year.

Border Police Foil Arab Axe Attack

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

Border Police officers blocked an axe-toting Arab from carrying out a terror attack near Jerusalem early Thursday morning.

Officers operating near the Palestinian Authority village of Beit Jala, close to Jerusalem, noticed an Arab man trying to hide an unusual object underneath his clothing, a spokesperson said.

The suspect, a 29-year-old resident of Bethlehem, was ordered to drop to the ground. When he did, an axe dropped to the ground along with him.

“The alertness and preparedness of the soldiers as well as their determination and readiness to engage [with the suspect] prevented a terrorist attack,” said the Border Police spokesperson.

Security personnel immediately arrested the suspect. During questioning he told investigators he was planning to travel to Jerusalem to attack an IDF soldier.
