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.

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

Palestinian Arab terrorists bombed IDF soldiers in Gush Etzion Saturday night. The terrorists hurled three improvised explosive devices (IED) at the soldiers while they were out on patrol.

The attack took place near the Arab village of Beit Fajar, close to the Jewish community of Migdal Oz and the Arab community of El Aroub. No injuries were reported.

In the capital, two Palestinian Arab terror suspects were arrested in the Jerusalem suburb of Issawiya also Saturday night, on the orders of a judge.

While the soldiers were operating in the neighborhood, Palestinian Arab terrorists began hurling rocks at Border Guard Police.

The troops chased the perpetrators and arrested five suspects.

Palestinian Arab terrorists also firebombed an IDF base east of Jerusalem late Saturday night, and then attacked the firefighters who came to extinguish the blaze that was ignited around the watchtower.

The two firefighter crews who arrived at the scene were met by a hail of rocks and an exploding Molotov cocktail.

IDF soldiers responded with non-lethal riot dispersal measures.

The attack took place at the Anatot Base, just east of the Mount of Olives and Mount Scopus, and mimicked an attack Thursday that was nearly identical. That attack took place at Jerusalem’s Ofrit Base on Mount Scopus, near the Hadassah University campus and not far from Saturday night’s attack.

Duma Mother Dies of Wounds

Monday, September 7th, 2015

Riham Dawabshe, the mother who was injured in July’s Duma arson fire died of her wounds late Sunday night.

The arson was the third in a series of four mysterious fires in the Duma village in 2015, all of which struck the Dawabshe clan, who make up two-thirds of the village. The third fire resulted in death of a baby, the father, and now the mother. A four-year-old son remains alive and in the hospital in serious condition.

The third fire was quickly blamed on settlers due to some crudely written Hebrew graffiti found on a wall, leading to mass administrative detentions and distancing orders of dozens of young settlers.

The Palestinian Authority police quickly claimed an electrical malfunction was the cause of the fourth fire, despite Arab rumors of an ongoing clan war and a Molotov cocktail. The Israeli police did not investigate the fourth fire.

No explanation has been given for the first 2 fires, one which struck a Dawabshe family home, and the other burning up a Dawabshe family car.
