Israeli security personnel thwarted an Arab terrorist who tried to carry out a stabbing attack on Thursday afternoon at the Ofra junction bus stop and hitchhiking post in the Binyamin region.
Forces at the scene shot and “neutralized” the terrorist, according to Hatzolah of Judea and Samaria. The IDF confirmed in a statement that the attacker is dead.
“Palestinian assailant armed with a knife attempted to stab an IDF soldier guarding a bus stop near the community of Ofra,” said an IDF spokesperson. “Responding to the immediate threat, forces at the scene shot the assailant, resulting in his death.”
Soldiers removed a knife during a subsequent search of the terrorist’s body as forces sought to ensure there were no other weapons or explosive devices on his person.
No Israeli at the site was injured in the attack.
A 15-year-old, Mordechai Tzadok, from Beit El witnessed the attack and told TPS what happened:

“I arrived at the bus stop with a friend to hitchhike back home. We saw an Arab coming out of the village and advance towards us, seeing that there were too many people, he turned back to another station. He entered the station wearing a sweater, and we realized there was a knife in his sleeves. He entered the station and shouted a few words, the soldiers shouted back at him a few words, we heard gunshots, we ran and we saw towards the terrorist was dead.”
Russian troops, ships, planes and missiles are either already in the area of Israel, or on their way to the region. Will the Russian presence stifle Israeli security? Will Russian intelligence gathering of Israeli troops and missions endanger Israel’s security? Will Israel and Russia ultimately clash with eachother’s forces? These are important questions that must be asked. Shifra Hoffman of VictimsOfArabTerror.org and Shuva.net talks about politics in Israel, and Tamar’s second guest, Jeremy Man Saltan, Knesset Insider and leading political analyst talks to Tamar about the build-up of Russian forces in the region due to it’s involvement in the Syrian Civil war, and talks about what it means to Israeli security.

In a statement released online after the beginning of the Kurdish and Iraqi assault on Mosul in northern Iraq, ISIS has claimed that it is launching deadly suicide car bomb attacks against the invaders.
More than two years after ISIS forces had entered the city of Mosul, Iraqi Army and Kurdish Peshmerga forces have begun their attack to recapture the city. Fears of an impending humanitarian crisis have already created more refugees, with only about one million civilians estimated to remain in the city, out of a population of two and a half million.
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi announced the assault in a televised address on Monday, announcing, “Today I declare the start of these victorious operations to free you from the violence and terrorism of Daesh (ISIS).”
With US air power, Iraqi forces are still keeping their distance from Mosul itself and are expected to lay siege before directly engaging the jihadists. The terrorist forces are vastly outnumbered, with only an estimated 8,000 warriors in the city and surrounding area.David Israel
IDF soldiers and Border Guard police officers carried out a joint operation in Judea and Samaria overnight.
At least one member of the Hamas terrorist organization was arrested by the forces. Five other fugitives living in the Palestinian Authority were also arrested during the night. All are wanted in connection with terrorist activities and rioting.
IDF soldiers also seized equipment and tools that were being used to produce weapons in the city of Shechem.
During the operation, Arab residents threw rocks at the forces. The attackers were captured and taken into custody for questioning.Hana Levi Julian
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman ordered additional forces be sent into Hebron in the wake of a wave of terror attacks over the weekend. “In accordance with situational assessments, the IDF is deploying a battalion to reinforce the area of Hebron,” the IDF said in a statement Saturday night. Brigadier General Ior Carmeli visited the scenes of the attacks in Hebron over the past two days.
On Saturday morning, a soldier was stabbed by an Arab terrorist. It was the third attack in the Hebron area and the fifth terrorist attack of the weekend by the end of the Sabbath. The stabber, identified later as local resident Hatem Abdel Hafez al-Shaloudi, was shot and killed by other soldiers. The soldier he stabbed suffered minor wounds.

But the incident underscores the increasing generations of Arabs born into a culture of rage and hate, then raised, schooled and trained into terror against Jews and Israelis.
In this case, al-Shaloudi approached the soldier who was guarding a checkpoint in the Hebron neighborhood of Tel Rumeida, and handed him a document that appeared to be identification. As soon as the soldier was distracted by glancing at the paper, the terrorist drew a knife and stabbed him.
Fortunately the soldier has great peripheral vision and excellent reflexes: he ducked, and managed to evade most of the knife, while his attacker made a lunge for a second soldier. Forces tackled the stabber and others came to their aid, eventually neutralizing the attacker.
“In response to the immediate threat, forces at the scene shot the assailant, resulting in his death,” the IDF said in its statement Saturday.Hana Levi Julian
