IDF, Border Guard Forces Capture 6 Fugitives, Weapons-Making Facility

Monday, September 19th, 2016

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.

Liberman Adds Battalion to Forces in Hebron After Multiple Weekend Terror Attacks [video]

Saturday, September 17th, 2016

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.

Turkish Forces Invading Syria Again

Saturday, September 3rd, 2016

Turkish Armored vehicles entered the Syrian town of Cobanbey in the northwestern Aleppo province Saturday, as part of Turkey’s Operation Euphrates Shield aimed at clearing ISIS from its border region, military sources told the Anadolu Agency. The sources said the Free Syrian Army (FSA), which is being supported by the Turks, took control of the town of Cobanbey, near the Turkish border in Aleppo.

Saturday’s invasion took place 36 miles west of Cerablus, opening a second front for the Turkish Army in Syria. The move could cut in half the territory controlled by ISIS along the Turkish border and isolate its drifting troops along the border.

The town, which shares a border with the city of Azaz which is controlled by Syrian opposition forces, has frequently changed hands between the FSA and ISIS.

Turkish fighter aircraft have been striking the villages along a highway where ISIS fighters are regrouping after having fled Cerablus, DHA reported Saturday. Three Turkish air force sorties have hit Gandıra Village in Cerablus. Syrians living in Gandıra, Bozhüyük, Küllü and Zugara have fled their villages to the Turkish border.

DHA reports that the area near the Turkish border has been cleansed of ISIS and is being supervised by the FSA, which is clearing the Cerablus fields from mines and explosives. Turkish Armed forces are monitoring civilian safety in the area.

The Turkish government launched Operation Euphrates Shield on August 24 with Moscow’s approval and in coordination with the US Special Forces who are operating in the area. It aims to improve security, support coalition forces, and eliminate the terror threat along Turkey’s border using FSA fighters backed by Turkish armor, artillery, and jets.


Report: IAF Trained with Pakistani, UAE Air Forces

Thursday, September 1st, 2016

Israel Air Force pilots last week trained for the first time with pilots from the Pakistani and United Arab Emirates air forces, as part of the “Red Flag” exercises in Nevada, Israel’s Channel 2 News reported Thursday. The teams from the two countries that do not have diplomatic relations with Israel nevertheless trained and cooperated with the Israeli team during the exercises. The Red Flag exercises also included pilots from the US and Spain and featured dozens of attack sorties, dogfights, bombings, and long-range flight midair refueling.

The report noted that the fact that the Pakistani and UAE teams did not object to flying alongside their Israeli counterparts suggests that they were more interested in studying and exercising than in politics. The lists of participating teams is composed solely by the Pentagon, and participating countries cannot modify it — but they can refuse to participate.

A senior IAF official told Chanel 2 News that “the Americans are excellent pilots, it’s clear they know how to fly and fight.” He said the Americans downed Israeli planes in dogfights, “but we downed them, too.” Each sortie involved many dozens of fighter planes, as well as refueling and intelligence support aircraft, and took place in day and night-time conditions, testing the teams’ ability to work together.

But the official noted that “this is not just about flying together, but about preparing for the mission ahead of time. You see right away who’s good and who’s not. There’s no place to hide. Everything stands out. We got better all the time, and the real deal was to learn from our mistakes.”

The exercise included IAF F-16I “Sufa” (Heb: Storm) aircraft, and for the first time Boeing 707 refueling aircraft. “It’s the nearest exercise to real warfare you can have,” the official said, “dealing with enemy planes, anti-aircraft missile threats—including the S300 systems Iran has—and cyber attacks on our aircraft. We still need to explore our performance, but the pilots are saying it was good.”

Next year, Israel will host the “Blue Flag” exercises, with the air forces of the US, France and Poland.

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

Overnight a combined operation of the IDF Judea and Samaria Division, Shabak and Judea and Samaria Police thwarted a weapons manufacturing infrastructure and arrested weapons makers and merchants in Bethlehem and in Hebron, the Police Spokesperson’s office reported. It was largest such operation this year.

IDF, Shabak and police forces, as well as Border Gurad units, located and captured seven weapons workshops with 22 lathes. In addition the forces discovered dozens of firearms, including magazines and parts. The forces arrested two suspects believed to be involved in making and selling illegal weapons. One of the two, considered the most prominent illegal weapons merchant in the PA, was taken in for questioning by the Shabak.

The illegal items were confiscated.

Since the beginning of 2016, the IDF, Israel Police and the Shabak have located 29 illegal weapons workshops in Judea and Samaria, with 49 lathes and more than 300 firearms. Security forces have also arrested more than 140 Arabs suspected of involvement in making and selling illegal weapons.

Since the beginning of the year there have been more than 30 terrorist attacks using firearms.

Security Forces Demolish Sarona Terrorists’ Homes

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Security forces overnight demolished the homes of the two terrorists who carried out a murderous attack at the Sarona Market in Tel Aviv two months ago. Four Israelis were killed and 16 injured in the attack. The two terrorists, Mahmoud Khalid Mahamrah and Khaled Mahamrah, both residents of Yatta in Judea and Samaria and both born in 1995, were captured in a manhunt. Last week the Israeli Supreme Court denied an appeal by the terrorists’ families, but ordered the government to avoid demolishing floors with residents who are not related to the terrorists.
