IDF Kills 1 Terrorist, Wounds Another in Samaria

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Israeli paratroopers shot and killed a Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist Saturday night after he hurled a deadly firebomb at an Israeli motorist traveling in Samaria.

After a brief manhunt the forces shot and captured the second terrorist who also had been targeting Israeli motorists on the same road; he suffered a leg wound. That attacker was hurling firebombs at passing vehicles as well.

The IDF force set out to hunt down the third terrorist as well, who also was attacking passing Israeli vehicles on the road, located near the Jewish community of Yitzhar.

The IDF emphasized to media in its statement that the soldiers were operating according to the rules of engagement.

“I want to bless the soldiers who responded appropriately to the terrorist this evening,” praised Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika. “Unfortunately we already know the awful results that can occur from rocks and firebombs hurled in the name of terror. Still, we must strengthen the soldiers who deal day to day with the enemy and, as we have seen tonight, not hesitate to respond.

“It is crucial that every terrorist know that the moment he intends to throw a rock or a firebomb at an Israeli soldier or an Israeli citizens, his fate is in his own hands.”

Israeli vehicles that travel between the Jewish community of Kedumim and the PA Arab village of Burin are at extremely high risk because the road has become tantamount to a rock-throwing and firebomb field for Arab terrorists in the area.

Since a young girl was critically injured in a terror attack on the road more than a month ago, however, Israeli security forces are taking the matter more seriously and have begun to intensify their protection of motorists in the area. The child and her father were both burned – the little girl nearly died – when their car was struck by a firebomb hurled by Arab road terrorists.

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.
