Monday, November 23rd, 2015

A 20-year-old IDF soldier was murdered and an 18-year-old teenage girl was hurt in an Arab terrorist attack at the Dor Alon gas station on Highway 443 on Monday afternoon.

The soldier has been identified as Ziv Mizrachi of Givat Ze’ev HY”D.

The Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist tackled Ziv Mizrahi when he exited the car in which he and the Jewish girl arrived at the gas station, stabbing them both. The station is located between Jerusalem and Modi’in near Beit Horon.

The young lady is good condition and was evacuated to a nearby medical center by Magen David Adom medics.

The terrorist was neutralized; he was shot and killed.

At least one previous terror attack took place on Highway 443 near the Maccabim checkpoint in July of this year. Arab terrorists prepared an ambush for Israeli motorists: a gas cylinder hidden among burning tires blocking the Jerusalem-bound side of the highway. Sappers were summoned to neutralize the threat.

Arab terrorists also continued to attack Israeli vehicles on the highway – known as the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway – hurling rocks and other items at the travelers, throughout the summer months.

Palestinian Authority Terrorists Wound 4-Year-Old Girl with Firebomb

Saturday, October 24th, 2015

Palestinian Authority terrorists celebrated another Day of Rage Friday by throwing a firebomb at Jewish family in a vehicle north of Jerusalem and wounding five people, including a four-year-old girl.

The family was driving on Highway 60 near Beit El in Samaria before Shabbat when the Molotov cocktail was hurled at their car.

The parents and two children suffered light burns.

The little girl, her parents and siblings were rushed to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

The Palestinian Authority calls terrorist attacks “acts of resistance” which on Friday included riots, rock-throwing and other firebomb attacks throughout Judea and Samaria. One of their targets was Rachel’s Tomb, which UNESCO declared this week is a Muslim site even though it existed long before the founding of Islam.


Foiled: Overnight Terrorist Infiltration into Yitzhar

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

Around 4:40 AM, Wednesday morning, the IDF noted an infiltration attempt into the community of Yitzhar in the Shomron, according to a TPS/Tazput report. Residents were told to stay indoors.

Emergency security forces were called out, and a chase began after a female terrorist who was trying to sneak into the town as everyone slept.

The terrorist was captured as she was trying to escape from the approaching troops that were surrounding her in a field, and she was lightly injured in the process.

The 15-year-old terrorist, armed with a knife and a firebomb, was from the nearby village.

There were no injuries to the residents or security forces.

There’s Nothing More Permanent Than Temporary

Monday, October 19th, 2015

Police have begun putting up “temporary”, portable, concrete walls in the Jabel Mukaber neighborhood of Jerusalem, adjacent to the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood.

The police hope these temporary structures will prevent the Arabs of Jabel Mukaber from throwing firebombs at the Jewish-owned homes in Armon HaNatziv as well as at police, as they have been doing.

Of course, as everyone knows, there’s nothing more permanent than something that is temporary, and besides, who knows when the Arabs of Jabel Mukaber will finally decide to start behaving like civilized human beings again (and if so, for how long).

Israeli Chabad Yeshiva Students Firebombed in NYC

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

Two Chabad-Lubavitch yeshiva students were attacked in New York City this past Friday afternoon, COLlive reports.

The students were part of a group that had boarded a sbuway heading from Brooklyn into Manhattan to carry out weekly mitzvah assignments with Jewish business owners and others in the city.

Two 19-year-old students who requested anonymity told COLlive the attack occurred while they were walking on West 37th Street near Ninth Avenue.

A brother of one of the students said, “A firebomb was thrown at one of them. It exploded and there was fire. They were shocked. An Israeli woman was walking by and ran over to check if they were okay.

“Thank G-d, it missed them and landed on the pavement,” he added. “It was a male who had thrown it at them, but they were only able to see his back because he ran away. They didn’t hear him shout or say anything.”

This is the first reported attack on Jews or Israelis in New York since the start of the recent escalation in Arab terror in Israel.

The New York Police Department has accordingly raised security in Jewish neighborhoods. Residents in Crown Heights commented they were seeing more officers on patrol this past week than had been seen during the high holy days, COLlive noted.

Firebombing Attacks Arrive on Israel’s Highway 6

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Road terror has arrived on Israel’s superhighway, Highway 6.

Arab terrorists hurled firebombs (Molotov cocktails) in at least two separate attacks north of the Ayal Interchange on Highway 6 after midnight, early Tuesday morning (Oct. 6).

The attack occurred near the Palestinian Arab city of Kalkilya in Samaria.

An Israeli motorist who was driving along the highway overnight said he saw a firebomb fly through the air on to the road and ignite, according to the Hebrew-language 0404 website.

A second motorist made a similar report to Israel Police but by the time a patrol car reached the site and scanned the area, the perpetrator was long gone.

The flames caused no damage and no one was hurt by the attack.

Recently an aide to Shas government minister Arye Deri was struck in one of two stone-throwing terror attacks from a bridge over Highway 6.

The rear window of the aide’s vehicle was hit as he was driving in the northbound lane, and sustained minor damage.

The rear windshield of a second vehicle that was struck was smashed.
