Rock-Throwing Arab Killed While Attacking IDF Commander, Soldier Hurt at Qalandia

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

An army commander shot and killed a Palestinian Authority Arab on Friday morning who had attacked the brigade commander’s vehicle.

The incident took place northeast of Jerusalem near the Arab village of Al-Ram, security sources said.

IDF Binyamin Region Division Col. Israel Shomer was driving to the Kalandiya checkpoint separating northern Jerusalem from Ramallah when his vehicle was attacked.

An Arab mob began hurling rocks at the vehicle. According to security sources, it appeared the attack on the commander’s vehicle was a planned ambush.

The terrorist was identified as Muhammad al-Qasba, 17.

“The commander reacted exactly as expected, given that the incident presented an immediate risk to life,” the security source pointed out.

No injuries were reported among IDF personnel. However, the commander’s vehicle was damaged. A photo shows the windshield is smashed, with a large hole directly in front of the driver’s side – making the lethal nature of the threat obvious.

The IDF deployed a large force to the area following the attack and “return fire” since it is clear there will be more riots to follow in the wake of the attacker’s death.

One IDF soldier has already been injured — albeit lightly — by a bottle hurled by a Palestinian Authority Arab while she was guarding the Qalandiya checkpoint Friday morning. The soldier was treated at the scene for the injury.

Terror groups and extremist imams in the mosques have been whipping local Arabs and Palestinian Authority citizens into a frenzy of hatred for the Islamic holy month of Ramadan. In particular they seize the opportunity to address their followers in sermons during and after public prayers on Fridays at the mosques.

In addition, the Da’esh (ISIS) terror organization has also exhorted Muslims worldwide to “rise up” during Ramadan and attack local authorities – police, military personnel, political figures – and other targets.

The “Sinai Province” terror group (formerly Ansar Bayt al Maqdis) ambushed Egyptian military personnel and police in more than 15 separate attacks Wednesday, killing dozens and wounding more. The Egyptian army retaliated and eliminated more than 100 of the terrorists in a two-day operation in the Sinai Peninsula. The mop up is continuing with cooperation from Israel, which has also gone to high alert along its southern border with Sinai.

Last week there were three different ISIS attacks on three separate continents that left more than a hundred dead and several hundred wounded, almost all of them civilians.

Israel Police Stop Arab Truck Theft at Samaria Town of Kedumim

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Israel Police put the brakes on Palestinian Authority Arabs who initially appeared to be attempting an attack near the West Bank community of Kedumim on Wednesday night.

The Arabs were driving a stolen truck through a police checkpoint at the entrance to the community, located in northern Samaria along Highway 55. The truck was being tracked by GPS via a system installed by an anti-theft security firm.

The driver rammed the truck into several other vehicles and then smashed its way past the security checkpoint, as the thieves attempted to escape police.

No shots were fired, according to police officials, who said a few people suffered minor injuries.

Arab Arrested with Fireworks Launchers Hidden in Car [video]

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

An Arab driver was caught with 5 multi-shot fireworks tubes (multi-launchers) hidden in his car as he tried to pass through the Hizme Checkpoint north of Jerusalem, according to a 0404 report.

Border Policemen found the hidden launchers.

Launching fireworks at police, civilians, children and homes has turned into the weapon of choice for Jerusalem Arabs in their latest round of rioting.

In the video below, you can see Arabs launching fireworks at police near the home of the terrorist who killed the 3 month old baby last week.

When they grow up they want to be just like Hamas.

Border Police Stop Terrorists at Tapuach Junction

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

Border Police blocked two Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists in Samaria from carrying out a terrorist attack in pre-1967 Israel on Thursday.

The two would-be attackers were hiding three pipe bombs, several knives and a gun while trying to pass through a checkpoint near the Tapuach Junction.

Police officers became suspicious of the pair, both in their twenties, when one seemed nervous about his bag.

“Two young Palestinians arrived at the bus stop near the Tapuach checkpoint, and I notified two officers who were stationed nearby. The officers approached the suspects in order to examine them, and they initially said they were headed to Ramallah. At that point, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and directed it towards one of the officers,” checkpoint commander First Sgt. Almog Ohana told Hebrew-language newspaper Yediot Acharanot.

In response, a Border Police officer released the safety catch on her weapon while a second officer knocked the gun from the terrorist’s hands.

One of the suspects had refused to open a black backpack he was carrying. The officers noticed there were wires sticking out of the bag and immediately cleared the area.

The officers summoned the bomb squad to neutralize the explosives, and transferred the two suspects to security personnel for further interrogation.

Security in and around Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem has been tightened for the upcoming Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur and the Muslim celebration of Eid al-Adha (Festival of the Sacrifice.)

The crossings into pre-1967 Israel from the Palestinian Authority will be closed effective midnight Thursday night until midnight Saturday night and security will be raised in communities and synagogues around Israel.

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Shortly after 10 pm on Tuesday evening, a shock grenade exploded near soldiers manning the Maccabim checkpoint on Road 443, near Modiin.

It is not clear if the grenade was thrown at the soldiers, or if one of the soldier’s grenades exploded.

Terror on the Roads: Gush Etzion – Sniper Rifles and Firebombs

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Overnight, two firebombs were thrown at Israeli cars on road 60, south of the tunnel checkpoint, near the Beit Illit junction in Gush Etzion.

One of the drivers reported that he saw a terrorist about to throw the firebomb at them, so he hit the gas to get away. As a result, the firebomb landed just behind his car.

The army began searching the area for the attacker. During the search, a car was stopped and in it they found two sniper rifles, a homemade silencer, telescopic sites, bullets and magazine cartridges, according to a report by the Tazpit News Agency. Three Arabs were arrested.

There were other stone throwing and firebomb attacks in Judea and Samaria overnight.

Israel’s Keystone Cops Catch the Arab – after a Car Crash

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Israeli police once again have managed to get involved in a traffic accident while chasing after a fleeing Arab.

This time around, it ended up a lot better than earlier this year, when police in the south chased after an Arab vehicle that had fled a checkpoint. As the police chased, the speeding Arab vehicle was recklessly driven over to the wrong side of the road, crashing into another vehicle and killing its Jewish driver.

Monday’s crash occurred on Highway 5, which connects northern Tel Aviv with the north-south superhighway 6 (Kvish 6) and which continues into Samaria. The pursuing police car and the fleeing Arab car collided, causing moderate injuries to the Arab and lighter injuries to three policemen.
