Terrorist Shot Dead in Stabbing Attempt at Qalandiya Checkpoint

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

An Arab terrorist was shot to death after attempting to stab a security man at the Qalandiya checkpoint between Jerusalem and Ramallah, just west from the Jerusalem municipality boundary, on Tuesday morning. The man passed through the vehicles’ lane and approached the security guard with a raised knife. He was fired at and was mortally wounded. He died shortly thereafter.

There have been several incidents of stabbing attempts and shootings at the Qalandiya checkpoint since the beginning of the current wave of terror. Last month the prosecution closed for lack of evidence its case against security guards who shot to death a teenager and his pregnant sister at the Qalandiya checkpoint last April. Both brother and sister were armed with knives, and the sister threw her knife at one of the guards, following which both attackers were gunned down.

Weapons Seized, Terror Suspect Arrested Near El Khader

Saturday, October 8th, 2016

A weapons cache was seized and a terror operation was averted over the Sabbath by the alert response of police and military personnel at the security checkpoint near El Khader, which is north of the town of Efrat in Gush Etzion.

Israeli police and IDF Etzion Regional Brigade forces confiscated the arms after the haul was discovered during a routine search of a vehicle driven by an Arab resident of the Palestinian Authority.

The suspect was allegedly on his way to transfer the cache to a hiding place, IDF officials said.

Among the arms seized were three assault rifles, two ammunition magazines and a large quantity of bullets.

“This was a successful continuation of an operation that began in Dehaishe this morning,” the IDF said. “The suspect was arrested on charges of weapons possession and was transferred to security personnel for further questioning.

“This activity is part of the campaign against illegal weapons in Judea and Samaria. Since the beginning of 2016, more than 350 weapons have been seized, and 32 arms manufacturing facilities have been shut down.”

Female Terrorist Neutralized at Kalandia Checkpoint [video]

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

Just like in France, the Islamic terror attacks are also continuing in Israel.

An 18-year-old female Arab terrorist approached the Kalandia checkpoint and began running towards to the guards in the vehicle lane, according to the police.

The guards yelled at her to stop, but she didn’t. When she got too close to them, the guards shot her in the legs.

A knife was found in her bag. Lucky for the guards, who waited until she was close, that she wasn’t carrying a bomb in the bag instead.

The neutralized terrorist was taken to the hospital in light to moderate condition.

There’s now some rioting going on at the checkpoint, but the Border Police have it under control.

The Kalandia checkpoint separates the Binyamin region from northern Jerusalem.
