Stoning Attacks Continue in Binyamin Region

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Arab terrorists hurled stones at an Israeli public bus Thursday evening as it traveled in the Binyamin region, between the Arab towns of Hizme and Anatot.

No physical injuries were reported by Hatzolah of the Binyamin region in any of the attacks, but there were no details regarding damage to the vehicles.

About two hours earlier, a group of 10 Arab terrorists hurled rocks at Israeli security forces, stationed in an outpost at Neve Ta’alach. No injuries were reported in the attack. The troops used routine mob dispersal methods to deal with the attackers.

At around the same time, a separate group of attackers threw stones at IDF soldiers at an observation outpost north of the Jewish community of Ofra. No injuries were reported in that attack, which took place close to the site where a 23-year-old terrorist attempted to knife soldiers earlier in the day. He failed in his attempt to murder Israelis, and instead was himself shot and killed.

Terrorists Arrested in Firebomb Attack That Burned Toddler and Family Near Beit El

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

The IDF cleared for release that security forces arrested three terrorists who attacked a vehicle near the Jewish community of Beit El on October 24, 2015.

The three attackers are accused of hurling two firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at the car in which the Sofer family was traveling with their children. The seat in which their three-year-old daughter Tahel was fastened was struck by one of the firebombs.

It immediately ignited.

Tahel’s parents managed to stop the car, pull everyone out, tear off the little girl’s clothing and put out the fire, just as rescue teams arrived. Little Tahel suffered burns on at least 35 percent of her body.

The Sofer family had been driving on Highway 60 just before the start of the Sabbath when the firebombs were hurled at their car. The parents and two children were burned. The victims were rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.

“The attack was one of several pre-planned attacks targeting Israelis in the area,” the IDF said in a statement. It was carried out during the start of a wave of terror that included stoning, stabbing, firebombing, shooting and suicide terror attacks, and which continued for a number of months.

The three Palestinian Authority terrorists had been out “celebrating” another ‘Day of Rage’ on the Friday they carried out their attack.

Earlier that week, the United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) had declared the site of the Tomb of Rachel — the ancient Biblical Matriarch of the three monotheistic faiths – to be solely a Muslim site, though it existed long before the founding of Islam.

A year later – in the latter half of October 2016 – UNESCO did the same with Jerusalem and the Jewish faith, effectively erasing all links between the Jewish People and Jerusalem, naming all her sacred sites solely by their Islamic names. The Temple Mount — site of the Jewish Holy Temple – also the location of the Al Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock, and the Western Wall, the sole remnant of the retaining wall of the Second Holy Temple, are referred to in the recent UNESCO Executive Board resolution on Jerusalem only by their Muslim names.

The holy city of Jerusalem is stripped of her glory in Judaism and Christianity by UNESCO, as was Rachel’s Tomb the year before.

How fortunate that reality has so little to do with UNESCO pronouncements.

Israeli Forces Thwart Knifing, Eliminate Terrorist at Ofra Junction [video]

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Israeli security personnel thwarted an Arab terrorist who tried to carry out a stabbing attack on Thursday afternoon at the Ofra junction bus stop and hitchhiking post in the Binyamin region.

Forces at the scene shot and “neutralized” the terrorist, according to Hatzolah of Judea and Samaria. The IDF confirmed in a statement that the attacker is dead.

“Palestinian assailant armed with a knife attempted to stab an IDF soldier guarding a bus stop near the community of Ofra,” said an IDF spokesperson. “Responding to the immediate threat, forces at the scene shot the assailant, resulting in his death.”

Soldiers removed a knife during a subsequent search of the terrorist’s body as forces sought to ensure there were no other weapons or explosive devices on his person.

No Israeli at the site was injured in the attack.

A 15-year-old, Mordechai Tzadok, from Beit El witnessed the attack and told TPS what happened:

“I arrived at the bus stop with a friend to hitchhike back home. We saw an Arab coming out of the village and advance towards us, seeing that there were too many people, he turned back to another station. He entered the station wearing a sweater, and we realized there was a knife in his sleeves. He entered the station and shouted a few words, the soldiers shouted back at him a few words, we heard gunshots, we ran and we saw towards the terrorist was dead.”

Palestinian Authority Police Terrorist Wounds 3 IDF Soldiers

Monday, October 31st, 2016

A Palestinian Authority Police officer wounded three IDF soldiers at around 5 pm Monday (October 31) in a shooting terror attack at the “Focus” checkpoint that secures the entrance to Ramallah, the capital city of the Palestinian Authority.

The checkpoint is located close to the Jewish community of Beit El, in the Binyamin Region.

“A Palestinian gunman arrived at an IDF crossing at the entrance to Ramallah and opened fire at forces at the scene, injuring three IDF soldiers,” the IDF said in a statement following the attack.

“In response to the immediate threat, forces shot the assailant. The soldiers have been evacuated for medical treatment.”

One soldier was listed in serious condition with a gunshot wound to the hip. Two other soldiers were listed in good condition, both having sustained shrapnel wounds. All of the wounded were evacuated to Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center in Jerusalem.

The terrorist was shot and killed by other forces at the scene.

Arab media has identified the terrorist as Mahmoud Turkeman, a member of a Special Forces Unit of the Palestinian Authority Police and a resident of Qabatiyeh, which is a village near Jenin.

This attack represents a serious escalation from previous attacks in recent months, and is an echo of a similar attack by another Palestinian Authority Security Force officer less than a year ago in the same place.

In that attack, three IDF soldiers were shot at the Focus checkpoint by a member of a high-ranking Palestinian Authority security detail in Ramallah.
