300 Reservists Pulled Out from Jerusalem as Relative Calm Returns

Sunday, November 8th, 2015

Israeli authorities are pulling 300 Border Police reservists out of Jerusalem as the wave of Arab stabbing and shooting attacks has subsided.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered the deployment of soldiers and Border Police in the capital last month in the wake of almost daily attacks on Jews at bus stops and on sidewalks as well as in the Old City.

In almost every case, the terrorists were killed or severely wounded, but that didn’t seem to deter more Arabs from trying to become murderers and martyrs.

The resulting fear caused a drastic decline in the number of people shopping in the city. One employee at Jerusalem’s Malcha Mall told The Jewish Press.com that traffic was down by up to 50 percent.

No one was declared that calm has returned to Israel, and rock-throwing and firebombing attacks continue, mostly in Judea and Samaria.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he has told Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas to halt incitement, and he may want to take credit for the decline in attacks outside of Judea and Samaria.

However, the incitement remains.

The Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) has translated and published more examples of recent Palestinian Authority incitement as late as last Sunday.

The official PA daily ran an article that described Arabs as waiting to “inhale the scent of the Martyr’s blood.”

The Fatah moment that Abbas leads also disseminated a poster page nine days ago praising a “martyr” who tried to stab to death Border Police near Shechem.

The poster stated:

Jerusalem, how can light appear without our blood as fuel
And how will we retake Jerusalem, if we will not be the soldiers.

Pre-Crime: Border Police Stop Potental Jerusalem Stabber

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

A group of Border Policemen received a report from the 101 police emergency line of a suspicious Arab walking in the Nof Tzion neighborhood of Jerusalem, according to the police spokesperson.

They approached the suspect while keeping at a safe distance, noticing that the 21-year-old Arab man was walking along a wall, checking out the nearby Jewish homes, and keeping his right arm hidden on the other side of the wall.

The Border Policemen stopped him, demanded he show them his arm. The suspect raised his arm, which he held in a clenched fist.

The police told the man to open his hand and show them what he is holding, but the suspect refused.

The man then asked to be allowed to go back to his home in Jabel Mukhaber.

After creating a diversion, one of the policemen jumped on the suspect and grabbed his arm, while other policemen then held him.

They found a knife concealed in the Arab suspects sleeve, and another terror stabbing was prevented.

Police say that alert civilians alongside the police were able to avert a potential stabbing attack.

Cabinet to Talk on Dealing with Radical Muslim Groups

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will discuss with the Cabinet Sunday on how to deal with the Muslim Brotherhood and Islamic Movement in an effort to restore calm and end the violence that has spread deep into the urban areas of Israel.

(An earlier version of this article incorrectly state that the Prime Minister would meet with radical Islamic leaders.)

Hundreds of policemen have been deployed through the country to prevent violence, Hundreds of Arabs from Kalkilya, adjacent to the Tel Aviv metropolitan city of Kfar Saba, approached the high-speed highway 6 (Kvish 6), where motorists were pelted by rocks this week.

The police closed the road for several minutes before restoring order. Part of Highway 444 near Netanya was closed after Arabs from the city of Taybeh rioted for at least the second time this week.

The repaid escalation of violence beyond eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria has clearly alarmed the country.

Prime Minister Netanyahu announced Saturday night that in addition to his attempt to deal with radicla Islamic violence, 250 reserve Border Police have been mobilized.

He stated: The three companies will reinforce the Israel Police in Jerusalem and throughout the country. An increased presence is a primary preventive and deterrent measure.

Security forces also are increasing surveillance over social media, which is being used as it was in the Arab Spring revolutions to promote violence.

The officer of the Prime Minister also said that the Prime Minister told U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday that “he expects the Palestinian Authority to stop its wild and mendacious incitement, which is causing the current wave of terrorism.

The statement added:

Kerry said he is aware of the fact that it is Israel’s policy to maintain the status quo and not change it.

Arabs Erupt in Violence Across Jerusalem, 2 Rockets in Southern Israel

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

(JNi.media) Despite a massive police reinforcement in Jerusalem, clashes between Arabs and security forces raged Friday and Saturday, with serious disturbances in several refugee camps; a rocket exploding in Sderot and a Grad intercepted over Ashkelon—the IAF retaliated.

Friday’s violent clashes in Jerusalem included serious disturbances in the Shuafat refugee camp and in the neighborhoods of A-Tur and Issawiya. Molotov cocktails injured Border Guard officers in Jabel Mukaber, a predominantly Arab neighborhood in south-east Jerusalem. Arab rioters were wounded and arrested. There was another attack on the Jerusalem light rail.

Muslim prayers on the Temple Mount ended in relative quiet Friday afternoon, but at the end of the prayers, according to Ynet, the signal was given for Arabs to start rioting at several locations in Jerusalem. Starting at 1:00 PM Friday, Arabs threw stones at police and Border Guard at Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate. In A-Tur, about half a mile from there, on Mt. Olives, masked rioters hurled stones at police and Border Guard. Officers responded with riot control gear and one rioter was injured by police.

Around 3:00 PM an Arab threw a paint bottle at the light rail tram on the Shuafat line—no one was injured.

Around 4 PM some serious disturbances developed in the Shuafat refugee camp, with dozens of youths, some masked and others wearing gas masks, throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at Border Police officers. One rioter, 18, a resident of Hebron, was arrested. The Border Guard also arrested and transferred for questioning a 17 year-old who was throwing stones at police in Wadi Joz.

There were extremely violent clashes in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood in southern east Jerusalem, where three border policemen were injured, one moderately and two lightly, from a Molotov cocktail that was thrown at them. An Arab who was shot in the leg was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in moderate to severe condition. Eight Arabs who were involved in the clashes were later arrested.

At 6:25 PM, Friday, police arrested a 17-year-old Arab who, along with several other young men, threw Molotov cocktails and stones at the security forces and a security vehicle in A-Tur. The local guard fired in the air to disperse the rioters. There were no injuries.

Around 8:00 PM, three Arabs were wounded lightly to moderately, one of them 13-years-old, during clashes between rioters and IDF and border police forces at the Rachel’s Tomb compound. The rioters threw stones and Molotov cocktails at the security forces, and in response the forces fired at them. The boy was evacuated by Magen David Adom paramedics to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem and the rest of the injured were evacuated by the Red Crescent to a hospital in the Palestinian Authority.

At 8:40 PM, sirens sounded in the city of Sderot and the Sha’ar HaNegev regional council, as a rocket hit southern Israel. The rocket, launched from the Gaza Strip, landed adjacent to a bus in the Sderot area, causing damage. Sirens sounded for a second time, at 11:31 PM, in the city of Ashkelon. That rocket was intercepted by the Iron Dome Aerial defense system. No injuries have been reported.

In response to the attacks, IAF aircraft targeted three terror sites in the northern Gaza Strip.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesman stated: “This evening’s acts of aggression are a clear reminder of Gaza’s commitment to violent terrorism. Israeli civilians should not have to live in fear, no one should. Hamas is the ruling power in the Gaza Strip and is therefore responsible, accountable and culpable for every attack emanating from Gaza.”

These were the 10th and 11th rockets to hit Israeli territory since January 2015.
