Security Forces Search for Terrorist in Herzliya

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

Security forces in Herzliya are hunting for an Arab suspect believed to be planning a terror attack somewhere in the upscale coastal city.

Herzliya is home to a major industrial zone where numerous international corporations maintain their headquarters.

This search, however, is unrelated to the manhunt that continues in metropolitan Tel Aviv as police there search for the gunman who killed two and wounded eight others last Friday at a café on Dizengoff Street.

Police and other security personnel warn that Nashet Melhem, 31, is armed and dangerous and is still at large; and although they believe he is hiding somewhere in the north Tel Aviv neighborhood of Ramat Aviv, they are not sure exactly where.

The suspect believed to be hiding in Herzliya is described as a young man in his 20s who drove to the center of the city, where he abandoned his vehicle.

There are conflicting reports about the suspect having evaded a police checkpoint in Jerusalem: Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld told JewishPress.com, “I’m not familiar with [reports that the suspect was] evading a checkpoint.”

He is reportedly a resident of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Tzur Baher. The suspect allegedly argued with his father prior to leaving the family home, saying he was planning an attack.

“There is heightened security in the Herzliya area,” said, Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld, who confirmed that forces are “searching for an east Jerusalem man in the Herzliya area. Police units are patrolling the streets,” he said.

Herzliya Mayor Moshe Fadlon ordered increased security at schools, kindergartens and other high-population sites as well. Police have asked the public to contact the “100″ hotline if they see anything or anyone who appears suspicious.

3 Arrested for Transporting Illegal PA Arabs Into Israel

Monday, December 28th, 2015

Three people have been arrested for transporting illegal Palestinian Authority Arab citizens into pre-1967 Israel.

Among those arrested Monday morning by Israel Police was an Israeli citizen and two others whose identities were not publicized.

The van in which the 19 illegal Arab workers were riding was pulled over on Highway 1 near the Ben Shemen interchange.

None of the passengers had legal entry permits for their presence in Israel.

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan has proposed a new fine of NIS 452,000 on business owners who hire illegal Arab workers from the Palestinian Authority.

Erdan said Sunday that those who employ those who are living illegally in Israel are “endangering the lives of Israeli citizens,” especially in the current wave of terror.
