Court Approves 45-Day Delay of Amona Evacuation

Thursday, December 22nd, 2016

The High Court of Justice has approved a request by the State to delay by 45 days the evacuation of the Jewish community of Amona.

The homes of 40 families – some 300 Jews – are built on a section of the town which the Court has ruled is privately owned by a citizen of the Palestinian Authority.

The approval came Thursday after Amona residents declared in a written document that they would evacuate the site peacefully, without conditions, without conflict or resistance, on the new evacuation date, which is to be February 8.

By that time, it is expected that the homes of 24 of the 40 families in Amona will have been moved by the state to a new plot of land within the community’s municipal boundaries – Lot 38 – which will by then have been officially declared state land and zoned for residential use. The land is currently held under the law of Absentee Landowners’ / Abandoned Property.

The other 16 families will have moved to temporary dwellings in the nearby town of Ofra, northeast of Ramallah.

Israeli soldiers set out in search of the attackers and found an abandoned vehicle in the field, and checked it to see if it had been used by the terrorists.

The victim, in his twenties, was treated at the scene before being evacuated by Magen David Adom medics to Tel Hashomer Medical Center with shrapnel wounds to the upper lip area and the cheek, Hatzolah of Judea and Samaria reported.

Last week, the car of a women from Neve Tzuf and her two children were shot at by terrorists in this same general area. No one was injured in that attack, but the car had multiple bullet holes in it.

On Sunday morning, the Israeli government approved a budget for 113 more bulletproof buses to be added to the nation’s fleet.

The proposal advanced by Likud Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz adds the buses over the next four years to the school and civilian bus lines in Judea and Samaria.

Firebombing and Stoning Attacks Kick Off New Week in Israel

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

It’s a new week in the Holy Land but some things are still around, like attacks on the roads of Judea, Samaria, the Binyamin region, Gush Etzion, mixed neighborhoods in Jerusalem and the like.

Early Sunday afternoon in the Binyamin region, local sources reported a stoning attack near the junction leading to the Arab town of Hizme. The attackers were hurling rocks at Israeli forces stationed at the site. No physical injuries were reported. All personnel returned safely to base.

At around the same time, Arab terrorists hurled rocks at vehicles as drivers traveled the Gush Etzion-Jerusalem road (Highway 60) near the Tomb of the Sheikh, between El Khader and the junction to the road leading to northern Efrat. No physical injuries were reported in any of the attacks, according to the Hatzolah emergency response team in Judea and Samaria. Stoning attacks such as these have led to critical injuries and deaths in the past and are punishable by fines and prison terms of up to 20 years.

Late in the day, around dusk, Arab terrorists firebombed the western side of the security fence around the Jewish community of Kiryat Netafim, igniting a fire in the process. Security personnel were able to extinguish the blaze, and IDF forces searched for the attackers.

At about the same time, other Arab attackers hurled rocks at Israeli drivers traveling on the highway between the Jewish communities of Psagot and Kochav Ya’akov. No one was physically injured but at least one vehicle was damaged. Israeli security forces were deployed to the site.

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.
