Efrat’s Elite Counter-Terrorism Unit

Efrat’s elite, rapid-response, counter-terrorism unit, “Ninja unit”, during a training exercise on Thursday night in the town.

It’s unlikely any terrorist stupid enough to infiltrate into the town of Efrat in Gush Etzion would survive the encounter.

Now, if only they could find that missing pizza pie.

Arab Rock-Throwing Attacks in Judea and Samaria

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

Palestinian Authority Arab rock-throwing terrorists focused on Highway 60, between Gush Etzion and the southern Hebron Hills, Wednesday morning.

They also clashed with Israeli soldiers at the flash point of Al Aroob, one mile south of the Gush Etzion junction.

Large-scale rock-throwing attacks were reported on the highway, but no one was injured and damage was minimal.

In Samaria, Israeli cars sustained damage from rock-throwers near Yitzhar.

There has been a dramatic decline in violence throughout most of Israel except for the rock-throwing attacks.

Massive Rock-Throwing Attacks South of Gush Etzion

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

Palestinian Authority Arabs hurled rocks at dozens of vehicles Sunday morning on Highway 60 south of Gush Etzion, causing damage to several cars but no injuries.

Most of the attacks occurred at Al Aroob and Beit Omar, two hotspots between Gush Etzion and Kiryat Arba-Hebron.

Israeli soldiers guard both areas 24 hours a day, but they are not deployed along the entire stretch of the highway, a maneuver that would require enormous manpower.

IDF guidelines limit soldiers’ ability to shoot at terrorists who throw rocks with the intent of causing fatal injuries or forcing the driver to lose control of his vehicle and crash.

Friday Night Terror Attack at Givat Sorek

Saturday, October 3rd, 2015

Palestinian Arab terrorists sneaked into Givat Soorek (Shorek) on Friday night, an outpost located about 100 meters south of the Judean Jewish community of Karmei Tzur, in Gush Etzion.

The terrorists attacked the synagogue at the outpost, setting it afire, but apparently God had other plans.

The arson caused a water pipe to burst in the building, preventing the holy books from being destroyed.

There was, however, some damage to the furniture and the building, according to Rotter.net.
