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.

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

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

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.
