Israeli Embassy in India: No Israeli Casualties in Massive Puttingal Temple Explosion

Sunday, April 10th, 2016

According to the Israeli Embassy in India, no Israelis are known to have been present in a massive fire than killed more than 100 people and wounded at least 350 others at the Puttingal Temple in Kollam early Sunday.

Israeli embassy staff are combing through the list of more than 100 Israelis in the city to make sure none were present at the time of the explosion and none were among the casualties.

Former Israeli Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov, was present in the area for a working meeting with Israel’s Ambassador to India, Alon Ushpiz. The Israeli diplomats were located only eight kilometers (five miles) away at the time of the blast.

The two officials were informed by security personnel of the tragedy a few minutes after the blast. Misezhnikov told the Hebrew-language Ynet news site, “The attack demonstrates that terrorism crosses all borders.”

At the time of the explosion, there were 10,000 to 15,000 at a temple next to the grounds where a fireworks display was held allegedly despite denial of permission from the temple.

A separate stockpile of fireworks stored in preparation for the upcoming New Year festival of Vishu this Thursday, was ignited by a spark.

India Navy and Air Force deployed six helicopters and a Dornier aircraft to assist with evacuation of the wounded at the site.

Prime Minister Narendra Mondi headed to Kerala state, location of the temple, with a team of 15 specialists to help treat the injured. Union health Minister JP Nadda is also heading to the site of the tragedy.

“Fire at temple in Kollam is heart-rending and shocking beyond words. My thoughts are with families of the deceased and prayers with the injured,” PM Modi said in his tweets.

He asked the Kerala state government to “suspend protocol” for his visit as he heads to the site of the tragedy. The request allows Chief Minister Oommen Chandy and other ministers to forego a special reception ceremony upon his arrival at the airport.

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.
