Hebron Terrorist Stabbing Attack Thwarted by IDF

Monday, September 19th, 2016

At around 9:30 pm Monday evening, an Arab terrorist lunged at an Israeli soldier with a knife in his hand.

The incident took place in the Abu Senina neighborhood of Hebron, according to a statement by the IDF, while the forces were carrying out a patrol of the area.

The terrorist was neutralized by other soldiers in the area, who overpowered the attacker without firing their weapons. He was arrested and transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

Earlier in the day, two terrorists in Hebron tried to stab Israeli Border Guard Police officers at the Cave of the Patriarchs, near the Tel Rumeida neighborhood.

Both of the attackers, residents of Hebron, were shot by IDF soldiers stationed at the site. One of the terrorists died at the scene of the attempted stabbing; the second was pronounced dead on arrival at a nearby hospital.

Terror Attack Foiled in Hebron

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

A 22-year-old Arab man from Hebron raised the suspicions of Border Police manning a checkpoint near Maarat Hamachpela, the Tomb of the Patriarchs, on Saturday.

The man was found to have been carrying a knife on him.

He told investigators that he had planned to commit a stabbing attack as an act of vengeance for his cousin, who was killed half a year ago – while trying to commit a stabbing terror attack.

An actual example of the cycle of violence.

Female Arab Terrorist Rendered Harmless by Police in Hebron

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

A phenomenon called “death by IDF” sometimes involves very emotional young adult Arabs who seek to end their days in a “blaze of glory and martyrdom” by attacking Israeli security forces, hoping to be shot and killed.

On Tuesday, a woman from the Palestinian Authority arrived at the Hebron security checkpoint leading to the Cave of the Patriarchs and pulled out a knife, threatening the Border Guard Police officers on duty.

The forces responded to the threat from the “terrorist” with pepper spray, and subdued the wannabe attacker.

She was taken into custody and transferred to security personnel for further questioning to determine what had prompted her to carry out the attack.

No one was injured in the incident.
