Monday, December 29th, 2014

Soldiers caught two Palestinian Authority rock-throwing terrorists in the act of trying to murder Jews on Monday and killed one and wounded the other after they refused to heed warning shots near the Tapuach junction in northern Samaria.

Elsewhere, soldiers fired warning shots at Gaza terrorists approaching Israel on land and by sea, and terrorists threw firebombs on the secondary highway linking Jerusalem with Tel Aviv via Modi’in. A firebomb attacks last Thursday night has left an 11-year-old Israeli girl in critical condition.

“The forces called them to halt and fired warning shots, and when they didn’t comply they responded to the threat with direct fire which wounded one of the attackers,” an IDF spokeswoman said.

The other terrorist, age 19 according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency, was evacuated to a hospital in Shechem with moderate gunshot wounds.

In Gaza, soldiers fired warning shots over the heads of Arabs approaching the separate barriers and at fishing boats veering towards prohibited waters.

Hundreds of Arabs Riot at Kiryat Arba-Hebron

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Hundreds of Palestinian Authority Arabs are rioting at this hour between Kiryat Arba and Hebron following the death of PA Minister Ziad Abu Ein in clashes with the IDF in Samaria.

Rioters are hurling rocks and firebombs at soldiers and burning tires on the road between the two communities.

No injuries have been reported as of 9 a.m. Thursday.

Video footage of Wednesday’s protest show segments of the standoff between Abu Ein, who led a protest march towards the Jewish community of Adei Ad, and soldiers.

The Palestinian Authority claims soldiers beat Ein, but the only physical contact that can be seen is a soldier shoving him.

The IDF is on high alert for riots throughout Judea and Samaria on Thursday, when Abu Ein is to buried near Ramallah.

Arabs, Israeli Security Forces Clash in Northern Jerusalem

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Arabs continued to clash Wednesday night with Border Patrol police officers in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

Journalists were ordered out of the danger zone and advised to move to the southern side of the checkpoint near the entrance to the neighborhood for their own safety.

Border Patrol police officers also moved closer to the edge of the neighborhood as well, as rioting Arabs continued to hurl firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and shoot fireworks into the sky and directly at police as well.

Arab violence across the city has been growing by the day, beginning with major riots breaking out at the Temple Mount on October 8.

On October 22, an Arab terrorist drove his car into a crowd of people waiting for the Jerusalem Light Rail near French Hill. A three month old baby and a woman from Ecuador were killed and numerous others were injured in that attack.

On October 29, Temple Mount Faithful organization head Rabbi Yehudah Glick was shot at point-blank range by an Islamic Jihad terrorist after speaking at an event held at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center near the Old City of Jerusalem. The terrorist asked Glick his name to be sure of his target before firing his weapon; Glick has undergone numerous surgeries and spent days fighting for his life at Shaare Tzedek Medical Center. In less than 24 hours Israeli security forces had tracked down his assassin, who opened fire at police when they surrounded the home. Muataz Ibrahim al-Hijazi was killed on October 30 in the shootout with police.

Yesterday, November 4, the Temple Mount was closed for the second time in a week by the Israeli government in response to the increasing Arab violence.

Arabs had clashed all weekend long with Israeli forces in multiple locations. The government was prompted to close the Temple Mount for the first time since 1967 the day after Glick was shot due to fears of Arab violence at the site, which is the holiest place on earth for Jews, and the third holiest site for Muslims.

Wednesday’s closure followed daily clashes in the Old City and Arab neighborhoods elsewhere in Jerusalem. Rioters attacked Israeli police with rocks and fireworks.

Earlier today another vehicular terrorist – this one a member of the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist organization – drove his van into a crowd of bystanders in two separate locations, and then got out of the vehicle and began attacking people with a crowbar. He fled when police arrived on the scene, and subsequently was shot and killed while they were in pursuit.

Arab Violence Against Police Follows Jerusalem Terror Attack

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Six masked Arab men hurled rocks at a police car near a construction site close to the Jewish community of Beitar Illit late Wednesday afternoon.

The attack followed a vicious spate of terror in Jerusalem and a horrifying terror attack in the northern part of the capital earlier in the day.

No one was physically injured in the attack near Beitar Illit, although the police vehicle was damaged. IDF troops were called to the site and immediately began searching for the attackers.

Around mid-afternoon, Arabs in northern Jerusalem’s Shuafat neighborhood hurled firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and shot fireworks at Border Patrol officers.

In a separate incident, two Arabs sprayed tear gas at Jerusalem police officers. No one was injured in either attack.

One arrest was made.

20 Years for Stone Throwers as Cabinet Stiffens Punishments for Rock Attacks, Road Terror

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

Israel’s government this morning (Sunday, Nov. 2) approved an amendment to the penal code that will stiffen punishment for throwing stones at motor vehicles.

At its weekly cabinet meeting, the cabinet decided to add an amendment to the current penal code allowing judges to imprison a convicted terrorist for up to 20 years for throwing or casting stones or other objects at a motor vehicle.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, called for the legislation in recent discussions on the disturbances in Jerusalem.

“Israel is taking vigorous action against terrorists and those who throw stones, fire bombs and fireworks,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at the start of the cabinet meeting.

“We will also pass stronger legislation on the issue. All of this is in order to restore quiet and security throughout Jerusalem.

“I have ordered that massive reinforcements be brought in and that additional means be used in order to ensure law and order in Israel’s capital,” Netanyahu added.

IDF Reportedly Killed 13-Year-Old Arab Rioter

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

Palestinian Authority rioters attacked Israeli soldiers near Ramallah Thursday night, and Arab media claimed a 13-year-old was killed.

An IDF spokeswoman confirmed to The Jewish Press that soldiers dispersed rioters using standard riot-control procedures but that it has not yet been able to confirm the report of the death of the teenager.

The riot began with rock-throwing at soldiers, who then left the village but came under another attack of rocks and firebombs when their vehicle was forced to stop because of a malfunction.

The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency identified the alleged victim as Bahaa Samir Badir, 13, who it said was shot in the chest “from close range.”

The IDF said the rioters posed a direct threat” to the lives of soldiers.

If the report is verified, it is bound to cause another round of anti-Israeli headlines in forcing media that the IDF kills children.

They seem to make a distinction between a 13-year-old and a 30-year-old who tries to kill soldiers.
