Jerusalem Apartment Firebombed, Miracle Saves Family

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

A Jerusalem family merited a miracle in the southeastern part of the capital on Saturday night when the balcony of their apartment was suddenly set ablaze by a firebomb — but the fire never reached the main living quarters.

The fire caused by the Molotov cocktail damaged part of the balcony, but was extinguished quickly. No one was physically injured, although the residents in the building, located in the Armon HaNatziv neighborhood, were traumatized.

Israeli security teams began to sweep the nearby Arab neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar in an attempt to track down the terrorists.

The attack follows last Thursday’s firebomb attack on a car that left 11-year-old Ayala Shapira with third degree burns on more than a third of her body. Her father, who was driving the vehicle near the Samaria town of El Matan when they were attacked, was also injured and taken to hospital.

Earlier in the day on Saturday, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) announced the arrest of two Palestinian Authority Arabs in connection with the attack. The two suspects, ages 15 and 16, are both residents of the village of Azzoun, situated close to El Matan.

Ayala Shapira Update

Sunday, December 28th, 2014

Ayala Shapira, the 11 year old girl who was hit by an Arab firebomb near El Matan and Maaleh Shomron on Thursday continues to remain in serious condition, though she is now stable.

IDF Captures Palestinian Authority Terrorists Who Firebombed 11-Year-Old [video]

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

Soldiers of the elite Duvdevan unit captured the Palestinian Authority terrorists who firebombed the car in which 11-year-old Ayala Shapira was riding Thursday night.

Her condition has improved slightly but she still is in critical condition. Her father, who was driving, was lightly inured when the terrorists hurled the Molotov cocktail at their car near their outpost community of El Matan, located between Maaleh Shomron and Ginot Shomron in Samaria.

The arrest of the terrorists was reported here on Friday, but gag order on details of the arrest was lifted Saturday night. The IDF, working on intelligence information provided by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), arrested two terrorists, one of them around 16 years old, shortly after the attack.

The terrorists are from the village of Azun, from where terrorists have carried out hundreds, and perhaps thousands, of rifle, rock-throwing and firebomb attacks on Jews driving on the main highway between Kfar Saba, on the northern edge of metropolitan Tel Aviv, and Jewish communities in central Samaria.

The terrorists confessed to the attempted murders of Ayala and her father.

They armed themselves with firebombs, waited on the side of the road and lit and threw the weapon when they saw the Shapira vehicle advancing.

They fled back to Azun and were arrested the same night following intense efforts by intelligence units.

Yaalon: El Matan Firebomb Terrorists Captured

Friday, December 26th, 2014

Defense Minister Yaalon told Ruth Shapira, whose daughter Ayala was seriously burned and wounded in last night’s firebomb terror attack that the terrorists were caught last night by IDF forces. The suspects are under interrogation at this time.

11 year old Ayala bat Rut is in a medically induced coma to avoid being in excruciating pain and she is still in serious condition.

‘Slight Improvement’ in Life-threatening Condition of Firebomb Victim

Friday, December 26th, 2014

Doctors at Sheba Hospital in Tel Aviv said Friday morning that there is a “slight improvement” in the condition of 11-year-old Ayala Shapira, who still is fighting for her life after a Palestinian Authority terrorist set on fire the car in which she and her father were riding last night.

They live in the El Matan outpost, adjacent to Maaleh Shomron, which is part of the Maaleh-Ginot-Karnei Shomron communities between Kfar Saba and Kedumim.

Her father escaped the burning vehicle with light burn wounds. Ayala suffered burns over 30-40 percent of her body, mostly in the upper parts and in the face.

Last month, Ayala’s mother Ruth was targeted in a similar Molotov cocktail attack in the same spot of last night’s attack. Her car was destroyed but she was not injured.

The girl’s father Avner told Yediot Acharonot that he saw the terrorists lighting the firebomb and throwing it.

“I shouted to my daughter to get out and she was able to do so,” he said. “We were able by the grace of God to get out of the car, but she was much more seriously wounded than I was. We hope that the hospital staff will be able to return her to her previous state.”

Ruth Shapira told the Israeli newspaper, “Ayala is a very special girl. She is an exceptionally smart child, who was on her way home from a program for youth gifted in mathematics at the Bar-Ilan University. “

Police said that Ayala almost certainly would have been dead if she had not rolled herself on the ground to extinguish the flames on her burning body.

As usual after a terrorist attack, the army sent a large number of soldiers to search for the attacker, who still is at large.

The nearby highway 55, the only direct road connecting Kfar Saba with Jewish communities in the area, has been the scene of hundreds of attempts to kill Jews with rocks, firebombs and guns. The army occasionally deploys several patrols simultaneously on the road.

And how does the pro-Palestinian Authority crowd understand the attack.

The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency told its English-speaking readers, who include foreign media, a blanket lie.

“Maaleh Shomron is part of a larger settlement bloc…surrounding a number of Palestinian villages on at least three sides and preventing Palestinians from freely moving in the area,” it wrote.

As usual, the opposite is true.

There are far more Arab villages than there are Jewish communities, and the only ”preventing” to moving freely comes from Palestinian Authority terrorists who constantly try to murder Jews.

 

Breaking News: 11-Year-Old Girl Fighting For Her Life Following Arab Terror Attack

Thursday, December 25th, 2014

Samaria – An 11-year-old girl was seriously wounded and her father lightly injured when Palestinians threw a firebomb at their car in Samaria, on Thursday evening, December 25. The young girl suffered from third degree burns to her face and upper body as the car burst into flames. The two were travelling near Route 55, on the road between Maaleh Shomron and the El Matan community (an outpost of Maaleh Shomron) in northern Samaria when their car was hit.

Magen David Adom were called to the scene and volunteers provided medical aid the father, Avner Shapira, 40, and his daughter before transporting them to the Sheba Medical Centerv at Tel Hashomer in central Israel. A spokesperson for Tel Hashomer stated that the girl, Ayala, arrived unconscious and in critical condition.

Doctors at Sheba Medical Center are currently fighting for Ayala Shapira’s life, who suffered burns to 50% of her body.

The family’s car was completely burned in the terror attack.

It was the second time in the past month that the Shapira family, who live in the El Matan community, had experienced a terror attack of this nature. Earlier in the month, the mother of Ayala, had been driving when her car was hit by a Molotov cocktail thrown by Palestinians. She escaped the car unharmed.

Firefighter chief, Yossi Dahri stated that that “we got to the scene quickly and found the car completely engulfed in flames and the father standing next to the car. The girl had already been transported to the hospital.”

The call to report the attack took place around 6:30 PM, and IDF forces arrived shortly after to search for the perpetrators in the region between the Palestinian town, Qalqilya and Ma’ale Shomron.

Terrorists Firebomb Home in Beit El in Samaria

Monday, December 1st, 2014

One or more Palestinian Authority terrorists hurled a firebomb Sunday night at a home in the Jewish community of Beit El, in the Binyamin region of Samaria. No one was injured, and the attackers fled.

If the Arabs had “succeeded” by burning the house to the ground and wounding or killing the residents, the establishment media would have been all over the story.

But, like rock-throwing, it was barely reported.

That is how the center-left media moguls, including the government-funded electronic media, keep most Israelis in the dark. When a major terrorist attack occurs in Judea and Samaria, it is reported as if it out of the ordinary, an assumed sign of escalation, of an intifada, of the need for the government to take stock of why it allows Jews to remain in Judea and Samaria, unwanted by Arab terrorists.

Throwing rocks and firebombs at Israeli citizens and soldiers are daily events. It is not an intifada and it is not a war. It is carried out by a minority of Arabs, almost all of them under 30 and who have been fed 20 years of incitement by official Palestinian Authority media to hate Jews and to become martyrs.

The JNS news agency ran an interesting article this week that the Islamic State slave markets, and the ISIS’ treatment of young girls as objects of merchandise, operate with nary a whisper from the mainstream Muslim community.

Similarly, the majority of Palestinian Authority Arabs may not love Israel but they are not interested in an intifada. They know their own Palestinian Authority is a terrible alternative to the “occupation,” but they are afraid to speak out because of fear of punishment by the criminals, who do not even deserve the title ”terrorists.”

Israel’s establishment media is just as much to blame.

The attacks are on “settlers,” so they don’t merit coverage, unless someone is killed or seriously injured.

But when a couple of right-wing criminals, and that is what they are, set fire to an Arab-Israeli co-existence school, or post pictures of Tzipi Livni and other officials in Nazi uniforms, the broadcasters on Israel Radio rush to the microphone to resurrect the ghost of the blood libel aghast the national religious community for the murder of Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin.
