Beit Fajjar Locked Down Following Ariel Terror Attack

Friday, March 18th, 2016

The Arab settlement of Beit Fajjar (Beit Fajr) in Gush Etzion was locked down by the IDF, allowing no entry or exit except for emergencies, according to Haaretz, following the terror attack on Thursday in Ariel.

The two terrorists who stabbed the female soldier as she stepped off the bus were residents of Beit Fajjar. The woman was stabbed 6 or 7 times in the neck and upper body before being shot by nearby IDF soldiers.

The residents of Beit Fajjar has an extensive history of terror attacks, in particular, repeatedly attacking the Jewish community of nearby Kibbutz Migdal Oz as well as a number of the attacks at the Gush Etzion junction, including the murder of Hadar Buchris in November 2015 and a stabbing attack in December 2015.

Beit Fajjar’s terrorists are mostly associated with Tanzin/Fatah – the military wing of the PA/PLO.

Presumably, the two traveled out to Ariel to commit their terror attack, after deciding that Gush Etzion is too well guarded, as most terrorists in the Gush end up dead before, during or after their attacks.

Apparently in Ariel too.

IDF Captures Palestinian Shooter in Gush Etzion

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

On Monday, the IDF cleared for publication that on Sunday night IDF forces arrested an Arab terrorist, right after he shot at the gate of Kibbutz Migdal Oz, in Gush Etzion.

IDF saw the terrorist shoot at the south gate with an improvised gun, and began a 10 minute chase, which resulted in his capture.

Over the past few weeks, there has been an increase in Palestinian terror attacks in Gush Etzion, including shooting at buses, roadside bombs, firebombs, and of course stone throwing. Kibbutz Migdal Oz has been a particularly favorite target of theirs.

It is not known at this time, if the terrorist is linked to other shootings in Gush Etzion.
