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.

Abandoned Car on Highway 5 Was Checked for Explosives But Found to be Stolen Vehicle

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

When a car ignored an order to stop and instead careened through a checkpoint on the cross-Samaria Highway Wednesday afternoon, security personnel immediately contacted regional police Wednesday afternoon.

But upon seeing the vehicle stop meters away and its occupants exit the car and dash away, the officers also summoned the bomb squad to the scene, just to be sure.

In the current environment, you can’t be too careful, and it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

The incident took place near the Jewish community of Oranit, located just a few minutes away from Highway 6 and about 10 minutes northeast of Petach Tikva.

The highway was closed in both directions as sappers began to check the car for explosives. Happily, there’s good news: the vehicle was stolen and the papers found inside were fake.

The highway has since been reopened to traffic.

All’s well that ends well. Police arrested a suspect in connection with the theft within the hour, and transferred the detainee to security personnel for questioning.

No injuries were reported.
