Deep Mourning for Hesder Yeshiva Soldier Killed in Clash with Terrorists

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

The religious town of Nof Ayalon became steeped in mourning on Friday, following the announcement of the tragic death of Cpl. Natanel Yahalomi, an Artillery Corp soldier killed in a fire exchange with terrorists at the Egyptian border.

Yahalomi, 20, who was recruited as a student of the Hesder yeshiva in Ma’alot last March, was buried Saturday night in the military cemetery in Modi’in.

His sister, Avital Yahalomi, told Channel 10 News that Natanel was scheduled to come home for the Sukkot holiday next week. “We’ve waited so much for this holiday. It was also our dad’s birthday. It hurts so much that the Creator of the world took him during the holiday season, of all times.”

She added that her brother was assigned to the artillery corps, but was fighting to be taken into a combat unit. He wanted to go into the infantry, to contribute as much as possible.”

Avital shared that “We knew Natanel was serving at a difficult area, but he wouldn’t tell us where exactly. He maintained secrecy, he was an exemplary soldier. We’re still in great shock.”

His father said over Natanel’s grave: “More than 20 years ago we had a baby. We picked the name Netanel (Hebrew: God-given) because we felt that God gave us a gift. We received a wonderful gift which we now return to the Creator of the world. We pray and beg that you will be the last of the fallen in the nation of Israel.”

The IDF Spokesman’s Office reported on Friday that Cpl. Natanel Yahalomi was killed and another soldier was moderately injured, as IDF forces prevented a large-scale terror attack on the Israeli-Egyptian border.

The terrorists opened fire on IDF soldiers as the soldiers performed routine activity to secure the construction of the fence along the Israel-Egypt border. At least one of the terrorists was armed with an explosive belt. The IDF force returned fire, and an additional IDF force patrolling nearby identified the three terrorists and also opened fire, killing all three.

IDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Yoav (Poly) Mordechai stated that initial findings show that the IDF force successfully prevented a large-scale attack on Israeli civilians. No terrorists managed to infiltrate into Israel.

The incident took place near the border fence in the Har Harif area. This is an area in which the construction of the fence has not been completed.

Exaggerated Reports of Terrorist Incursion into Ginot Shomron

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Various news sources are reporting that a terrorist with a knife was captured while trying to squeeze under the fence into the town of Ginot Shomron around 6:30 PM on Tuesday.

The story is exaggerated. A Palestinian youth who had a knife and a slingshot was questioned as he was hiking along Nachal Kana, a stream which is located hundreds of meters below Ginot Shomron. He was seen by Jewish hikers also hiking along the river, who called the army and handed over the 24 year old Arab from nearby Kfar Azun to the IDF.

First response teams of the town were not activated due to non-likelihood of a terror attack in this instance.

The soldiers reportedly are providing water to the migrants, who as of Tuesday had been there for five days. The migrants, who include a pregnant woman, have refused to be sent back to Egypt.

Humanitarian organizations have called on Israel to allow the migrants to enter and apply for asylum.

Responding to Recent Attack, IAF Targets Gaza Terror Sites

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

Overnight, IAF aircraft targeted three weapon manufacturing facilities in the central Gaza Strip, as well as two terror tunnels in the northern and southern Gaza Strip. Direct hits were identified.

This is in response to the infiltration on Friday morning, in which Staff Sergeant Netanel Moshiashvili was killed by terrorist fire adjacent to the security fence.

The IDF will continue to operate against anyone who uses terror against the residents of the State of Israel. The Hamas terror organization is solely responsible for any terrorist activity emanating from the Gaza Strip.

IDF Soldier, Terrorist Killed in Gaza Border Clash

Friday, June 1st, 2012

21 year old Golani Staff-Sergeant Netanel Moshiashvili from Ashkelon was killed early Friday morning in a skirmish with a Palestinian terrorist that infiltrated into Israel from Gaza. The terrorist was also killed in the encounter.

According to Ynet, the terrorist approached the security fence near Kisufim at approximately 4:30 a.m., cut it, and snuck into Israel. A Golani unit rapidly deployed to the area, coming under fire by the terrorist. In the ensuing gunfight, the 21 year old soldier was shot, and soon after died of his wound.

Palestinian witnesses near Abassan, a village in Southern Gaza, reported hearing gunshots, and shortly thereafter, IAF jets flying overhead.

The IAF attacked multiple targets in Gaza in response. It is believed that this attack was actually another abduction attempt.

Last week, two soldiers were wounded when they were shot by sniper fire while patrolling the Gaza border. They were treated for mild injuries in a nearby hospital.
