Police Release Full CCTV Video of Be’er Sheva Attack [video]

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

Israeli Police released the entire CCTV feed from the Be’er Sheva Central Bus Station attack on October 18, 2015.

In the video you see the terrorist stalking the targeted soldier from a distance. This goes on for close to 4 minutes.

Eventually the soldier goes to the bathroom and the terrorist follows him in, shooting him.

Hearing the gunshots, soldiers and eventually also the police gather outside, positioning themselves and waiting for the terrorist to come out, which he eventually does, leading to a gun battle where the terrorist is killed.

Be’er Sheva Eritrean Yelled “Allahu Achbar” During Terror Attack

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

The Eritrean man, Haftom Zarhum, who was shot and killed by a guard during the Be’er Sheva terror attack on October 18, and subsequently attacked by a mob, reportedly yelled out “Allahu Achbar” during the attack, according to the police investigation and witness accounts, Israel Channel 1 reported.

While Islamic terrorists almost always scream “Allahu Achbar” when they are trying to slaughter Jews, Muslims are also known to say it in times of emotional stress.

If accurate, it would explain why the guard mistook the Eritrean man for the terrorist during the attack.

Four people were arrested for beating up Zarhum after he was shot, thinking he was the terrorist.

IDF Golani Soldier Dead in Be’er Sheva Central Bus Station Attack [video]

Sunday, October 18th, 2015

An IDF Golani soldier has died of his wounds and eleven others were wounded after an Arab terrorist armed with a knife in his backpack entered the Central Bus Station in Be’er Sheva shortly before 8 pm Sunday evening.

The attacker stabbed an IDF soldeir and grabbed his M-16 rifle and began firing into the crowd of passengers waiting to travel to various locations.

Nearly all of the wounded were people in their twenties, officials said.

By 8:29 pm the bus station — a central hub in the Negev — was evacuated and sealed, with all public transportation shut down in the city amid fears by security personnel that additional terrorists could be at large. By 10:30 pm those fears were largely dispelled, although security forces were still hunting for a taxi that had run a checkpoint shortly after the attack.

Two of the wounded were still in very critical condition. Two others were in serious condition, four were listed in fair condition and one is in good condition. Four of the victims are police officers.

At least seven other people were hospitalized for trauma and shock. All were taken to the city’s Soroka Medical Center.

The sole terrorist was shot and killed by security forces at the scene. An Eritrean citizen who was initially also assumed to be a terrorist was critically wounded and was undergoing surgery.

The security guard who shot the Eritrean citizen said in his initial interrogation after the incident that he was convinced the man was a terrorist: “I saw him running toward me, not hiding like the others, so I shot him,” he told the Hebrew-language Ma’ariv newspaper.

Photo Essay: Shabbos Will Be White in Israel


This is not a snowstorm. This is a blizzard, even by New York’s standards.


More than a foot of snow has fallen in Jerusalem and Gush Etzion, three inches in Arad, and even Be’er Sheva saw the white stuff that will leave most of the north and half of the center covered in white on Shabbat.

High winds whipped the snow into drifts and downed several power lines.

Jerusalem is without bus service, and the two main highways from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem are closed, as are many roads in the Golan Heights, the Upper Galilee, the road from Gush Etzion to Jerusalem, and part of the highway north of Be’er Sheva

Power blackouts were reported in several parts of the country, and schools wereclosed from the north to Dimona.

Part of the main highway north of Be’er Sheva was closed because of ice on the road.

Snow fell, without accumulation, in Carmel for the first time in 20 years.

Snow will turn to rain in most of the country by Friday afternoon, but freezing temperatures will turn many roads to ice overnight.

Temperatures will rise slightly on Sunday and sharply on Monday and Tuesday, melting away much of the snow.

Later next week, weather models indicate that Israel is on target for more heavy rain, without snow, except on the Hermon ski slopes.

If you don;t believe snow fell on Carmiel, several miles east of Haifa, and Dimona, east of Be’er Sheva, here is proof from two YouTube videos.
