Israeli Man Injured in Stoning Attack Near Beitar Illit

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

An Israeli man was injured Tuesday night in a stoning attack by Arab terrorists while driving on the Hussan bypass road near the Jewish community of Beitar Illit, in Judea. His identity was not released, but he was reported to be in good condition.

In addition, several private vehicles and an Israeli public bus were also damaged in the attacks.

At least one firebombing attack in the area also caused a fire on the side of the road when the explosive, a Molotov cocktail, landed and started a blaze.

Israeli security forces were summoned to the site to search for the attackers.

The Hussan bypass road has increasingly become a magnet for Arab terrorists who target drivers with stoning and firebombing attacks as they are forced to slow down which traveling along a curved stretch of highway.

“The IDF is having difficulty with the current policy of bringing quiet to the region, while drivers are continuing to endanger their lives and those of their passengers on a daily basis,” military journalist Noa Sofer Magid wrote on the Hebrew-language 0404 site Tuesday night, in connection with the attacks.

The Hussan bypass road is located about two minutes’ drive south of the capital, just on the other side of the southern checkpoint at the entrance to the tunnel road into the southern neighborhoods of Jerusalem.

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.

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.”
