IDF Maps, Prepares to Demolish Home of Gush Etzion Stabber

Monday, February 29th, 2016

Late Sunday night, IDF engineers and combat forces to protect them mapped out the Dura residence of Mamdou Amro. The house will be demolished in accordance with current policy regarding terrorist attacks that result in the deaths of Israelis.

The terrorist, 26, attempted to murder IDF reserve Capt. Eliav Gelman last week in a stabbing attack at the Gush Etzion junction.

Gelman lived with his pregnant wife and two children in the nearby Jewish community of Karmei Tzur. He was hit in the crossfire and critically injured as IDF soldiers were aiming at Amro to stop the attack.

The wounded officer was rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem but could not be saved.

The terrorist was also hit by gunfire and seriously injured. He was taken to hospital as well and treated in Jerusalem.

Iran said last week it will pay $30,000 to families of Arabs whose homes are demolished because they murdered Israelis — but it is not yet clear how and when the money will be paid.

PA PO’d: No Flow on Iranian Dough

Sunday, February 28th, 2016

Palestinian Authority officials are livid over an announcement by Iran that money promised to the families of “martyrs” will not flow through the Ramallah government coffers.

It seems Iran doesn’t trust the PA government’s sticky fingers – and perhaps Tehran also wants to stir the pot between Fatah and its proxy, Hamas a bit also. Hamas as a group is more Islamist and radical in its observance than the PA government’s ruling Fatah faction; moreover, Hamas is nearly entirely under Iran’s control whereas Fatah has many backers.

The International Affairs Adviser to the Iranian Parliament Speaker and Shura Council, Hossein Sheikh al-Islam, said Saturday that Tehran will not send the financial aid to the families who have lost their members in attacks on Israelis via the Ramallah-based Palestinian Authority (PA) government.

“Tehran will not send its aid package to the families of those killed … through the PA as it cannot be trusted,” Sheikh al-Islam told al-Resalah news website on Sunday, the semi-official Iranian FARS news agency reported.

Noting that Iran will dispatch its aid through a special channel, he added, “The financial aid package will be sent at the earliest; Iran doesn’t spare any efforts to support the resistance.”

Nabil Abu Rudeinah, spokesperson for PA leader Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), called the Iranian move a “flagrant intrusion into internal Palestinian and Arab affairs.”

Rudeinah said “It would have been better if Iran would send its funds to the Palestinian institution responsible for Palestine’s heroes and their families, rather than resorting to crooked ways and illegal means,” according to the PA’s official WAFA news agency.

He added that al-Islam’s remarks are “unacceptable, not just [as] an overriding of the Palestinian legitimacy but a violation of all laws,” the Xinhua news agency reported.

Al-Islam’s interview with Alresalah was not spontaneous by any means: the online news site has a close link with the Hamas terror organization which controls Gaza. Hamas has become an Iranian proxy since seizing the region from the Palestinian Authority in 2007.

Iranian Ambassador to Lebanon Mohammed Fath’ali announced last Wednesday that Iran would pay Arab families $7,000 for each “martyr” who died attacking Israelis in Jerusalem. In addition, Iran promised to pay $30,000 to each Arab family whose home was demolished by Israel after one of its occupants murdered Israelis in a terror attack.

Although the funds are expected to be channeled through an Iranian charity it is not yet clear which one, nor how the money is to be distributed.

Israeli Forces Demolish Homes of 2 Terrorist Murderers

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Early Tuesday morning, IDF engineers backed up by Border Guard Police officers demolished the homes of two terrorists who carried out attacks against Israelis on November 19.

One of those demolished was the home of the killer who stole the lives of Rabbi Yaacov Don, Ezra Schwartz and Shadi Arfa, an Arab pedestrian, in a shooting attack at the Gush Etzion junction. Seven others were wounded in the attack.

Raed Masalmeh, 36, a resident of the Arab village of Dura (south of Hebron) confessed to the attack at the Panorama. He was indicted for the murders in the Tel Aviv District Court. Masalmeh had been issued a permit to work in Israel only four days prior to the murders, having no prior record of previous security-related activity.

The other demolition was a response to the murders of Reuven Aviram and Yisayev Aharon, who were stabbed to death at the Panorama Building in Tel Aviv. Two others were wounded.

Mohammed Abdel Basset al-Kharoub, 24, in the Arab village of Dayr Samet (west of Hebron) opened fire from inside his vehicle with an Uzi submachine gun. When he ran out of bullets he drove towards the junction and rammed into a car. Both police and IDF soldiers confirmed it was al-Kharoub who committed the murders.

Although recently such demolitions have been taking place almost immediately following terrorist murders, these two came much later due to appeals by the family members that were held up in court. Last week, the High Court of Justice rejected the appeals of the family members of the two terrorists, requesting the demolition orders be nullified.

In the case of the second terrorist, the family had appealed on the grounds the attacker was mentally unstable. However, the panel of judges ruled the motivation of the terrorist was not an issue of mental health but rather one of nationalistic desires – and that indicated mental competence. “From the evidence presented by the Israel Prison Services, there is no record of an active or effective psychiatric condition,” the judges said.

Israel Demolishes Home of Arab Terrorist in Samaria

Monday, January 11th, 2016

The IDF and Civil Administration together demolished the home of an Arab terrorist who attacked Israeli soldiers last weekend.

The demolition took place Sunday night.

The terrorist was one of a team of two who tried to stab IDF soldiers on Saturday morning at the Beka’ot checkpoint. The site is located between the Jordan Valley and Samaria, on the eastern outskirts of Shechem.

Both terrorists were asked to exit their vehicle after being stopped at the checkpoint, also known in Arabic as the Al-Hamra checkpoint.

An IDF spokesperson said the two assailants attempted to stab Israeli soldiers at the security crossing, who opened fire in response to the attack, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency.

The two attackers received medical treatment on site but were pronounced dead, the IDF spokesperson said. No Israelis were injured.

Both victims were residents of villages located in Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of Samaria.

Israel Demolishes 2 Terrorists’ Homes in Jerusalem

Monday, January 4th, 2016

The homes of two Jerusalem terrorists were demolished Monday morning by IDF forces.

Both structures were located in the neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber, a terrorist stronghold from which a number of Arab attackers have originated.

The two terrorists, together with a third carried out lethal attacks on October 13 in Jerusalem that killed four and wounded 16 others.

In response, Israel’s High Court of Justice approved orders to demolish the homes on December 23, 2015. The orders were carried out on Monday morning (Jan 4).

The home of Baha’a Aliyan, 22, was demolished. Alliyan boarded Egged bus No. 78 in the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood together with another terrorist, Bilal Ranem, 23 and began stabbing and shooting the passengers. Two victims died instantly and a third died a few weeks later. More than a dozen others were wounded in the attack, which took place not far from the terrorists’ own neighborhood. Aliyan was shot and killed by police. Ranem was shot and wounded; he was arrested by police and taken into custody.

Aliyan’s home was completely demolished Monday morning by IDF engineers.

Nearly simultaneously, Abu Jamal rammed his Bezeq service vehicle into a crowd of people at a bus stop on Malchei Israel Street in central Jerusalem, then got out and began chopping whoever was left standing, with a cleaver. Rabbi Yeshayahu Krishevsky, z’l, 60, was killed.

The home of Ala’a Abu Jamal – who was employed as a technician with the Bezeq telephone company – was filled with concrete by the IDF engineers, and completely sealed off.

IDF Demolishes Home of Legal Arab Worker-Turned-Terrorist

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

IDF soldiers spent the night Tuesday mapping out the home of an Arab terrorist who stabbed and seriously wounded two Jewish workers last week, in preparation for its destruction by morning.

Eight days ago, Ismail Moussa Mahmoud al-Hadidi, 39, stabbed the two Jews at adjacent construction sites in the central Israeli city of Modi’in in what at first appeared to be a possible case of “workplace violence.” Both sustained moderate wounds and were listed in fair condition.

Al-Hadidi, a legal construction worker from the Palestinian Authority who entered pre-1967 Israel daily, was quickly overpowered by other workers at the site. He was arrested and taken into custody.

All of the terrorist’s identity papers were found to be in good order, with proper entry and work permits.

Plans for the destruction of Al-Hadidi’s home in Beit Liqiya, located just over the 1949 Armistice Line (the “Green Line”) near Modi’in, were prepared overnight by combat soldiers from the Duchifat Battalion of the Kfir Brigade. The home was demolished by Israel’s military engineering unit in the wee hours of the morning.
