4 Terror Attacks in 12 Hrs – Jerusalem Light Rail to Avoid Shuafat

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Security officials have decided enough is enough: four terror attacks on the Jerusalem Light Rail in 12 hours has ended the route through the capital’s northern neighborhood of Shuafat, at least for now.

Jerusalem Arab terrorists hurled firebombs and rocks at the Jerusalem Light Rail in two separate attacks in less than an hour on Monday night as the train passed through the capital’s Arab neighborhood of Shuafat. Two other attacks occurred earlier in the day.

Passengers instinctively ducked, and mothers with babies threw themselves down on to the floor of the train, some of them bursting into tears, according to witnesses quoted by the Hebrew-language 0404 website.

Miraculously, no one on the train was physically injured, although passengers were traumatized and the train itself was damaged in each of the attacks.

One of the passengers in the second attack of the day told 0404, “Suddenly the train was hit by two flaming firebombs… there was great panic and mothers laid down with their babies on the floor of the train. It is absolutely surreal, what we are going through here. Just unbelievable.”

The website noted that three masked Arab terrorists  hurled rocks at another Light Rail train during the first attack of the day.

Depending on size, the CityPass firm that runs the Light Rail must pay NIS 3,000 to NIS 5,000 to replace each window smashed by terrorists hurling rocks and firebombs at the train. Insurance does not cover the cost of replacing equipment damaged in terrorist attacks.

Arab rioters in Shuafat completely destroyed the infrastructure three Jerusalem Light Rail stations in the area at the start of Operation Protective Edge, preventing the train from passing through the neighborhood for a number of days. As it did then, the line will operate — at least temporarily — between Mount Herzl and Ammunition Hill, with the route ending at Ammunition Hill.

The northern Jerusalem neighborhoods of Shuafat, Beit Hanina, Pisgat Ze’ev and Neve Yaakov will thus be deprived of service due to Arab terrorism in Shuafat.  Jews live in at least two of the four neighborhoods, with a Jewish section recently having started in a third neighborhood as well.

Arab Terrorist from Jerusalem Shoots at Jewish Homes

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Border Police shot and wounded Saturday an Arab terrorist from Jerusalem who shot at homes in a community in Samaria during the Sabbath, putting bullet holes in houses but causing no injuries.

The 20-year-old terrorist who constantly fired at the Pisgat Ze’ev community in northern Jerusalem was finally shot in the Shuafat neighborhood and is in serious condition in Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

Police sharpshooters ambushed the terrorist, who was whisked away in a Red Crescent ambulance after being shot. Security personnel caught up with the ambulance at a checkpoint and escorted to the hospital.

Police suspect that the terrorist did not act along and are investigating the possibility that others are involved.

Last week, Palestinian Authority official Jibril Rajoub, who once headed Yasser Arafat’s Preventive Security forces and now directs the PA Soccer Federation, said last week that the Palestinian Authority supports Arab terrorists who attack Jews living in Judea and Samaria.

Elsewhere in Jerusalem, Arabs in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City used their rooftops to as launching points for hurling rocks at Jews passing by, an infant suffered light head wounds. He was treated at the same hospital where the Shuafat terrorist is being cared for.

More than 360 incidents of violence have been reported in Jerusalem this month. Police have arrested more than 600 terror suspects, most of them young people from eastern Jerusalem, and 200 indictments have been filed.

Arab Riots Near Ramallah

Friday, August 8th, 2014

A mob of Palestinian Authority Arabs rioted near the Samaria-based PA capital of Ramallah, not far from the Jewish community of Beit El, north of Jerusalem, on Friday afternoon.

Several hundred rioters hurled rocks, firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and fireworks at IDF soldiers who at first used standard riot control methods in attempts to contain the mob.

When that failed, IDF soldiers allegedly opened fire, according to the Palestinian Authority’s Bethlehem-based Ma’an News agency. It is not clear how many of the rioters were wounded, if any.

Escape or Infiltration Attempt from Gaza?

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

IDF soldiers fired in the air after spotting a group of Gaza Arabs approaching the security fence from the northern part of the region.

The soldiers fired after the Arabs ignored several warnings that were shouted at them, telling them to leave the area.

After the warning shots, the group retreated. The identity of the Arabs is unknown.

About two hours earlier, a Code Red incoming rocket alert siren was triggered in the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council district. Israeli officials subsequently announced the alert was a “false alarm.” Local sources insisted, however, that a rocket did land in an open field in the district.
