Arab Terrorists Escalate Attacks on Israeli Drivers After UN Resolution 2334

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

In the wake of UN Security Council resolution 2334(2016), Arab terrorists are becoming even bolder, with stoning attacks against Israeli drivers escalating Monday even further.

Below is a list of some of the attacks that took place on Monday:

Arab terrorists smashed the windshield of an Israeli Egged bus in a stoning attack Monday night at the intersection of Uzi Narkiss and Neve Yaakov in Jerusalem. Miraculously, the driver managed to keep the bus moving, and none of the passengers were physically injured in the attack.

Arab sources reported an improvised explosive device was thrown at Israeli military forces Monday afternoon during operations near the northern entrance to the town of Bethlehem. No injuries or damage reported and all personnel returned safely to base.

A gang of some 15 Arab terrorists attacked a transport van filled with Jewish students on Monday morning. The van came under a hail of rocks as it was traveling the road north of the Adorim junction. None of the passengers were physically injured, but there was no word on whether the vehicle was damaged.

Terrorists also attacked an Israeli bus driver Monday late morning on the Gush Etzion-Hebron Highway, also known as Highway 60. The attackers hurled stones at the bus as it passed the Arab village of Beit Omar. None of the passengers were physically injured, but again, no word on damage to the bus. Beit Omar is known as a terrorist stronghold in the Judea region and a hotspot for stoning attacks on Israeli drivers.

There were more stoning attacks at midday on Israeli drivers traveling the Gush Etzion-Hebron Highway between Beit Omar and the junction to the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur, south of Gush Etzion, 20 minutes’ drive from Jerusalem. No one was physically injured, but at least one car was damaged in the attack.

Ten minutes after that attack, Arab terrorists were back on the same road, attempting to kill Israeli drivers by stoning. This time the ambush took place south of Beit Omar, and from an easterly direction. The driver whose car was hit reported no physical injuries to passengers in the vehicle, but the car was damaged.

Meanwhile, north of Jerusalem, Arab terrorists were stoning Israeli drivers between the Jewish community of Neve Tzuf and the community of Nahliel. No physical injuries were reported there.

In the Binyamin region, four terrorists were spotted as they were stoning Israeli drivers on the road between the Jewish communities of Beit El and Psagot. There were no physical injuries, but no word on damage to the vehicles.

Closer to Jerusalem in the early afternoon, terrorists hurled rocks at an Israeli bus traveling along Highway 443, known as the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem Highway. The attack occurred near the A-Tira Bridge. No one was physically injured in the attack.

Local Jewish residents reported that Bus 83 was stopped at the square in the neighborhood – a section where many Arabs reside – when the vehicle was attacked, according to local residents.

It is not clear whether anyone on the bus was physically injured.

Arab Woman Suing Bus Company that Dropped Her on Suspicion of Terrorism

Sunday, October 18th, 2015

(JNi.media) An Israeli Arab student from the village of Mu’awiya, in the Wadi Ara area of the Haifa District. last week was bumped from a bus during a trip, after passengers suspected that she was a terrorist, Ha’aretz reported Sunday.

The incident occurred last Sunday, on Egged bus line 870, connecting Afula and Be’er Sheva. Around 11:00 AM, Bayan Khaled boarded the bus at the stop nearest her home, in the city of Umm al-Fahm. The ride began as usual, and, according to Khalid, she even said hello to the driver, because the two have known each other since she often takes this route.

According the Egged bus company, during the trip two soldiers who were passengers on the same bus, approached the driver and one of them told him that his father is a senior police officer, and that he recognizes the Arab passenger—Khaled—from police wanted pictures of terrorists.

The bus company also claims that besides approaching the driver, the soldier also called the police on his own initiative and asked for instructions. The soldier was ordered to “act naturally” and ask the driver to stop at the gas station on Route 6, where police cars would be waiting.

The driver did as he was told, and in a short time police entered the bus, and approached Khaled, who presented her identity card and student ID. The police demanded that she get off the bus with her bags for questioning, which lasted about ten minutes. During questioning, the bus drove off without her and so did the police, when it became clear that there was no basis for suspicion.

Khaled remained on the margins of the highway, where there is no bus stop, without any possibility of continuing the trip. Later, her father had to drive there and take her back home to Mu’awiya.

Khaled, 23, is a Nursing graduate student at Ben Gurion University, and works as director of the center of the Clalit HMO in Be’er Sheva. Since the incident, she has not gone back to her job. “It hurt me mentally, I’m traumatized. I never thought that I would experience something like that, I’m still in shock,” she told Ha’aretz. “The driver went straight back to the bus and did not wait for me. He didn’t care what would happen to me afterwards.” Khaled demanded the driver’s name, but Egged refused to provide it.

A warning letter prior to legal action sent by Khaled’s attorney demands to receive the driver’s personal information and for the company to take disciplinary action against him. Also, Khaled will be asking for compensation in the amount of approximately $12,000, for humiliation and interference with their rights.

An Egged spokesman said in response that he believes the claim would be rejected. He also said “the incident was embarrassing and unusual and took place during the days of attacks by individuals directed at the Jewish community in general and bus users in particular. The driver acted as required when he stopped the bus at the Alonit service area on Highway 6. … Moreover, the driver acted as he had been instructed by police, who ordered him to close the door of the bus and drive away from the scene after removing the suspect. The driver has no discretion but to act as he did according to police guidelines on the matter.”

According to Egged, company representatives called up Khaled at home on the day of the incident and offered to pay a considerable cost for a taxi to take her to Be’er Sheva. They also offered her to board the next number 870 bus free of charge, but she refused, saying her father was already in touch with an attorney.
