PA Security Police Officer Was A Terrorist in Damascus Gate Attack

Monday, February 15th, 2016

Once again, a U.S.-trained Palestinian Authority Police office has used his skills — and his foreign-supplied and funded equipment — to attack Israelis in a terror attack.

A Palestinian Authority Security Officer was one of two terrorists who opened fire Sunday night at Border Guard Police in Jerusalem.

The attackers opened fire just before 11 pm, as the Border Guard night shift were receiving their orders at the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

The officers noticed a suspicious-looking Arab man approaching the group and asked him to show them what was in the bag he was carrying. He pulled out an assault rifle and aimed it at them.

Omar Ahmed Amru, a Palestinian Authority Security officer, died in a hail of bullets as the officers quickly opened fire. His partner, Mansour Yasser Shawamra, began shooting at the officers from a distance of approximately 100 meters away. He, too, was shot and killed by the Border Guard officers.

In the bag officers found explosives and a knife. None of the Israeli officers were wounded.

This is not the first or second or even the third time Palestinian Authority Security Police have been involved in terror attacks on Israelis during this terror wave.

On January 31, three IDF soldiers were shot at point-blank range in a terror attack by a member of the Palestinian Authority Security detail assigned to the Ramallah district attorney. The terror attack occurred at the ‘Focus’ checkpoint near the Samaria Jewish community of Beit El.

On Sunday shortly before the Damascus Gate attack, terrorists shot at a home within Beit El. Miraculously, no one was injured in the attack. IDF personnel are searching for the terrorist.

Hamas Confirms Beit El Terrorist Was Member of PA Security Force

Monday, February 1st, 2016

The Hamas terrorist organization confirmed in a statement late Sunday the terrorist who shot three Israeli soldiers at an IDF checkpoint near Beit El was a Palestinian Authority police officer.

According to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news outlet, Amjad Jaser Sukkari, 34, was a Staff Sergeant from Shechem (Nablus). His body was returned by Israel to the Palestinian Authority security forces several hours after the incident and was buried the same day.

The attacker drove up from Ramallah to an IDF checkpoint next to the Jewish community of Beit El on Sunday afternoon, got out of his car with a handgun and shot three Israeli soldiers at point-blank range. Two were seriously wounded and a third less severely so. Other soldiers immediately returned fire and killed the terrorist on site.

Gaza’s ruling terror group “hailed the heroic resistance operation carried out … by PA security forces member Amjad Sukkari,” Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri told the Alresala newspaper.

He deemed the shooting a “natural response to the Israeli field executions of Palestinians.

“This attack showcases the rejection of security coordination with the occupation, even among members of the PA security forces,” Abu Zuhri pointed out.

The Hamas official claimed that Sukkari worked as an escort for the chief of the Ramallah prosecution office.

Late Sunday night, the IDF surrounded Ramallah to implement a partial closure of the Palestinian Authority capital city in response to the attack. Only residents who can prove their status were being allowed in and out of Ramallah.

3 IDF Soldiers Shot by PA Police Officer in Beit El Terror Attack [video]

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

Three IDF soldiers were wounded in an Arab terror attack Sunday morning at the ‘Focus’ checkpoint near the Samaria Jewish community of Beit El, near Ramallah.

It now appears that the terrorist was a member of the Palestinian Authority police detail assigned to escort and provide security to PA leader Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah.

“A gunman opened fire near Beit El, north of Jerusalem,” said an IDF spokesperson. “Forces at the scene responded to the attack and shot the assailant, resulting in his death.”

One of the injured soldiers, age 21, was taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem with a gunshot wound in the neck.
He is in serious condition.

A second soldier, age 21, was taken to Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center with gunshot wounds to the stomach and extremities. He is also in serious condition.

The third soldier, age 20, is also at the Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center after sustaining gunshot wounds to the extremities. He is in good condition.

The terrorist arrived by car at the checkpoint from the direction of Ramallah. He used a handgun to carry out the attack.

A Facebook post in Arabic uploaded just prior to the shooting was spotted by a source that has requested anonymity.

“Ahmad Abu Omer, 34, wrote in a post on his Facebook page prior to the attack at Beit El, “We deserve to live in this Land, but there is nothing that justifies living as long as there is the Occupation that kills our brothers and our sisters.” He added a photo of himself allegedly on the way to a terror attack with the caption, “We will overcome in the name of Allah.”

It is not clear what Abu Omer’s connection is to the shooter, or whether he was the shooter himself.

According to a local source, the terrorist who opened fire at the soldiers was Amjid Saher, a PA Police Officer who allegedly worked in the security unit that escorted and provided personal security to “Abu Mazen” — Mahmoud Abbas — when he is in Ramallah.

No Joy in Mudville: PA Bans Checkpoint Riot in Ramallah, Hamas Bans New Year’s Celebrations

Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

(JNi.media) On Wednesday afternoon, Palestinian Authority security forces prevented hundreds of protesters from continuing their march to the IDF checkpoint in Ramallah’s al-Bireh neighborhood, near the Jewish town of Beit El in Samaria, Ma’an reported.

Leading members of the Fatah movement were present at the march, including committee member Sultan Abu al-Einein, as well as PLO executive committee members Wassel Abu Youssef and Jamil Shihadeh. The secretary general of the Arab Liberation Front, Rakad Salem, and the secretary-general of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Qais Abd al-Karim, were also in attendance. The Ma’an report presented this as a peaceful march, which it could have been — at the start. But the same story reported that once they realized they weren’t going to be allowed near the soldiers, dozens of youth left the march and instead headed to an area in al-Bireh where they clashed with Israeli forces.

So they had their riot after all. Amira Hass, an Ha’aretz reporter and columnist [JP: and Israeli settler living in Ramallah], wrote on Wednesday that the PA security forces have been engaged for some time in physically preventing demonstrations that inevitably blossom into riots and clashes. The Palestinian leadership is finally getting sick and tired of losing their children to suicidal stupidity.

According to Hass, many Judea and Samaria Arabs believe the knives intifada only hurt the cause of a 2-state solution. But they can’t say it out of respect for the families of the dead terrorists.

There’s definitely a permeating sense of despair in the Palestinian territories. Perhaps a realization that the murderous fantasy is over, and all it got them is about a billion dollars deeper in debt, and several hundred crazed kids dead.

In Gaza, Hamas put the icing on the cake by announcing a ban on New Year celebrations. The decree forbids restaurants and hotels to host celebrations on the occasion of New Year’s Day, Ma’am reported. A spokesman for the police in Gaza said, “The decision to ban restaurants and hotels from celebrating New Year’s Eve came as it is incompatible with the teachings of our religion, and its being primarily a Western tradition.”

He explained that “the suffering of the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip due to the siege imposed on them requires respect for the sufferings and sacrifices.”

Road Terror in Samaria Shooting Attack Near Beit El

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

Arab terrorists opened fire at Israeli vehicles as they traveled in Samaria near the Jewish community of Beit El, near the Palestinian Authority capital city of Ramallah.

Israeli security forces were called to the site where terrorist snipers were ambushing Israeli drivers from the side of the road. Miraculously, no one was shot directly, although a vehicle was damaged.

Security personnel told TPS at least one driver managed to flee an attack without injury and reported it to nearby soldiers before continuing on her way to the nearby Jewish community of Kida.

The woman’s vehicle was confirmed to have been hit by at least two bullets — the bullet holes were visible — although the vehicle itself was still able to be driven.

IDF soldiers fanned out across the area of the attack to hunt for the shooter.

Palestinian Authority Terrorists Wound 4-Year-Old Girl with Firebomb

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Palestinian Authority terrorists celebrated another Day of Rage Friday by throwing a firebomb at Jewish family in a vehicle north of Jerusalem and wounding five people, including a four-year-old girl.

The family was driving on Highway 60 near Beit El in Samaria before Shabbat when the Molotov cocktail was hurled at their car.

The parents and two children suffered light burns.

The little girl, her parents and siblings were rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

The Palestinian Authority calls terrorist attacks “acts of resistance” which on Friday included riots, rock-throwing and other firebomb attacks throughout Judea and Samaria. One of their targets was Rachel’s Tomb, which UNESCO declared this week is a Muslim site even though it existed long before the founding of Islam.
