Arab Terrorists Escalate Attacks on Israeli Drivers After UN Resolution 2334

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

In the wake of UN Security Council resolution 2334(2016), Arab terrorists are becoming even bolder, with stoning attacks against Israeli drivers escalating Monday even further.

Below is a list of some of the attacks that took place on Monday:

Arab terrorists smashed the windshield of an Israeli Egged bus in a stoning attack Monday night at the intersection of Uzi Narkiss and Neve Yaakov in Jerusalem. Miraculously, the driver managed to keep the bus moving, and none of the passengers were physically injured in the attack.

Arab sources reported an improvised explosive device was thrown at Israeli military forces Monday afternoon during operations near the northern entrance to the town of Bethlehem. No injuries or damage reported and all personnel returned safely to base.

A gang of some 15 Arab terrorists attacked a transport van filled with Jewish students on Monday morning. The van came under a hail of rocks as it was traveling the road north of the Adorim junction. None of the passengers were physically injured, but there was no word on whether the vehicle was damaged.

Terrorists also attacked an Israeli bus driver Monday late morning on the Gush Etzion-Hebron Highway, also known as Highway 60. The attackers hurled stones at the bus as it passed the Arab village of Beit Omar. None of the passengers were physically injured, but again, no word on damage to the bus. Beit Omar is known as a terrorist stronghold in the Judea region and a hotspot for stoning attacks on Israeli drivers.

There were more stoning attacks at midday on Israeli drivers traveling the Gush Etzion-Hebron Highway between Beit Omar and the junction to the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur, south of Gush Etzion, 20 minutes’ drive from Jerusalem. No one was physically injured, but at least one car was damaged in the attack.

Ten minutes after that attack, Arab terrorists were back on the same road, attempting to kill Israeli drivers by stoning. This time the ambush took place south of Beit Omar, and from an easterly direction. The driver whose car was hit reported no physical injuries to passengers in the vehicle, but the car was damaged.

Meanwhile, north of Jerusalem, Arab terrorists were stoning Israeli drivers between the Jewish community of Neve Tzuf and the community of Nahliel. No physical injuries were reported there.

In the Binyamin region, four terrorists were spotted as they were stoning Israeli drivers on the road between the Jewish communities of Beit El and Psagot. There were no physical injuries, but no word on damage to the vehicles.

Closer to Jerusalem in the early afternoon, terrorists hurled rocks at an Israeli bus traveling along Highway 443, known as the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem Highway. The attack occurred near the A-Tira Bridge. No one was physically injured in the attack.

Paintbottle and Firebomb Attacks on Israeli Buses and Cars in Gush Etzion

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb at an Israeli public bus Sunday night as it traveled near the Jewish community of Ma’ale Amos in eastern Gush Etzion.

Miraculously no one was physically injured in the attack. There was no word on the condition of the bus.

Earlier in the evening and on the western side of Gush Etzion, Arab terrorists hurled a paint-filled bottle at an Israeli motorists traveling along Highway 60 past the Arab village of Beit Omar.

The village is located between the Gush Etzion junction and Hebron, just a few minutes south of the Arab town of El Aroub. The attack took place early Sunday evening.

No physical injuries were reported in the attack but the status of the vehicle was not clear.

Paint bottle attacks are becoming more common as terrorists become more inventive in their attempts to kill Israelis on the roads.

Bottles filled with paint shatter on impact when they hit a passing vehicle, spreading a thick coat of colorful paint on the windows of any moving vehicle. They immediately blind the driver, causing the vehicle to slow down at the very least, if not to crash.
