Border Guard Police Officer Attacked Near Jerusalem

Saturday, October 15th, 2016

An Arab terrorist stabbed a Border Guard Police officer on Sabbath morning during operations on a road near the Jewish community of Har Adar, northwest of Jerusalem.

The officer was operating with a patrol unit that was preparing to open a road next to a security barrier when he was ambushed by the terrorist, who sprang out of the brush near the barrier, brandishing a knife.

He aimed at any officer he could reach and managed to stab at least one, before turning and escaping towards the nearby Arab town of Beit Surik, near Har Adar.

The wounded police officer sustained a shoulder wound and was treated on the scene before he was evacuated, first to Har Adar, and then to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

Israeli security teams are hunting for the stabber and those who were involved in planning the attack.

PM Netanyahu Seeks Delay From High Court on Amona Expulsion

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has directed the government to ask the High Court of Justice to postpone or delay its expulsion of the residents of Amona from their homes by six months.

The Jewish community is slated for demolition on December 25th of this year, per a Supreme Court order.

But Netanyahu has asked state government officials to request the delay. Sources in the prime minister’s office say Netanyahu had been planning to ask for the delay in any case, but Education Minister Naftali Bennett exacerbated the situation, threatening Wednesday night to take his party and leave the coalition if the expulsion was not cancelled, or at least postponed.

After a meeting Thursday morning between Netanyahu, Bennett, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked — a member of Bennett’s Jewish Home party — and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, it was decided to submit a request to the High Court for a delay of the demolition.

The 40 families who comprise the community of Amona live on a hill in the Binyamin region, on the outskirts of the Jewish community of Ofra.

Ten years ago this past summer, Israeli security forces carried out a court order to demolish nine permanent structures built at the edge of the Amona neighborhood. The footage of the horrific clashes that took place between the protesters and the security forces — some on horseback, nearly all wielding batons — at the site were the most violent between Jews in the history of the state of Israel, and certainly in the history of the settlement enterprise. Hundreds of people were wounded.

More than a generation has passed since the little neighborhood was created, and there is still nowhere for the residents to go if they are evicted. They built their homes in 1995 with a NIS 2.1 million grant from the Ministry of Housing and Construction. It probably never occurred to them that one day, the same government that helped the build would try to expel them without providing a place to go. Echoes of Gush Katif, anyone?

Stoning Attack Targets Israeli Drivers on Binyamin Roads

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

Arab road terrorists attacked Israeli motorists Wednesday evening as they drove near Wadi Hermiya, about 200 meters south of the British Police Junction.

No physical injuries were reported, but the front windshield was smashed on at least one of the vehicles.

Stoning attacks are extremely dangerous and under Israeli law rocks have this year been designated as lethal weapons.

Numerous Israelis have died due to attacks by Arab terrorists hurling rocks at their moving vehicles.

Those convicted of such murders can face a sentence up to 20 years in prison.

Arabs Still Trying to Kill Israelis: Saturday Night List of Attacks

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

Arab terrorists are still busy trying to kill Israelis with stoning and firebomb attacks on the roads and in mixed Jerusalem neighborhoods. A brief review of the events on Saturday night shows the terror wave is not yet over, regardless of the statistical analyses coming out of the government offices.

Plain and simple, Israelis are not yet safe from Arab terrorists who are being egged on by the Palestinian Authority government.

Following is a brief roundup of terror attacks that took place around the country on Saturday night.

Stonings in Binyamin Region Arab attackers hit Bus No. 140 to Beit El on Highway 60 in Samaria, between the Jewish community of Adam and the Arab village of Hizme, north of Jerusalem.

No one on the bus was physically hurt, but the windshield on the bus was broken by one of the rocks.

A second Israeli bus, No. 143, also came under a hail of rocks hurled by Arab terrorists on the road. No one was physically hurt but the windshield of the bus was smashed.

On highway 437 in the Binyamin region, Arab terrorists hurled rocks at an Israeli bus traveling along Highway 437 in the Binyamin region, north of the Arab village of Hizmeh.

None of the passengers were physically injured. The windshield of the bus was damaged.

Motorist Firebombed Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb at an Israeli motorist traveling along Highway 55 near Bnei Elias, also on Saturday night.

No one was physically injured and no damage was reported.

Karmei Tzur Attack Foiled Three Arab terrorists from the nearby Judean village of Beit Omer approached the security fence of the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur in Gush Etzion on Saturday evening.

The terrorists hurled a firebomb into the community through the fence, before fleeing when security personnel arrived. The firebomb landed harmlessly. No one was physically injured and no damage was reported.

Jewish Homes Attacked in Ma’ale Zeitim Arabs hurled firebombs at Jewish homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ma’ale Zeitim on Saturday night in the eastern section of the capital.

No one was physically injured in the attack. It is not clear whether there was damage to any of the homes.

Beit Horon Terror Stabbing Victim Shlomit Krigman, HY’D, Laid to Rest

Tuesday, January 26th, 2016

Hundreds of mourners gathered to support friends and family of Shlomit Krigman, hy’d, as they paid their final respects Tuesday before she was laid to rest at the Har HaMenuchot cemetery in Jerusalem. “She was a very special person,” said one.

The young woman — only 23 years old — lived in Shadmot Mehola in the Jordan Valley, but was staying in Beit Horon, located between Modi’in and Jerusalem along Highway 443, at the time of the attack.

“Shlomit was loved and known to all,” said the Beit Horon settlement administration in a statement. “She served as a Bnei Akivah youth group coordinator during her National Service. During the past year she lived with her grandparents in the settlement of Beit Horon.”

She was stabbed outside a grocery store late Monday afternoon by two Arab terrorists from the Palestinian Authority. Critically injured, she succumbed to her wounds on Tuesday morning at Hadassah Medical Center’s Mount Scopus campus.

A second Israeli woman, age 58, was also stabbed in the same attack. She is in stable condition with moderate wounds at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

When the terrorists tried to enter the store to continue their stabbing spree, two Jewish workers pushed them back with a shopping cart, forcing them to run.

At that point, both attackers were shot and killed by a security guard. Forces who were searching the area found three IEDs (improvised explosive devices) they had planted around the store. Sappers were summoned to the site defuse the bombs.

The two terrorists, Ibrahim Ala’an, 22, from nearby Beit Ur al-Tahta; and Hussein Abu Ghosh, 17, from Qalandiya, a Hamas operative; reached the store via a nearby wadi. They jumped the fence surrounding the community, store worker Motti Shalem told Ynet.

“These difficult times are fraught with confrontation and we will overcome. We will continue to fight against terrorism and the incitement which drives it. In the face of terror, we choose life,” President Reuven Rivlin said in the wake of the attack.

On Monday night, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the IDF to prepare an upgraded comprehensive security plan for the Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.

Immediately following the stabbing at Beit Horon, the IDF froze the work permits of the family members of the two terrorists and a series of other security measures. Roadblocks were set up on all access routes to Beit Ur al-Tahta, allowing only humanitarian cases in or out, according to an IDF spokesperson.
