IDF Guarding Jerusalem Buses and Light Rail

Sunday, October 18th, 2015

The IDF has deployed approximately 300 soldiers in Jerusalem to guard major bus routes, the light rail system and roads in what might be the first time the army has patrolled in the city for decades.

Troops were called in last week to beef up the police force, but today’s deployment at specific points makes the capital look more like a war zone. However, it is temporary because a non-military security system is in the works.

Foreign media might now decide to depict Jerusalem as being under military rule, but the deployment of soldiers clearly makes the public feel more secure in the city where walking in the street or riding a bus has been a journey of fear of being stabbed by a Jerusalem Arab terrorist.

Passenger traffic on Jerusalem buses was down 30 percent for one or two days last week, and usually bustling shops were nearly empty.

The failure of many Arab stabbing attacks to inflict heavy damage the past several days has led Hamas to incite terrorists to run over Jewish pedestrian, similar to the ramming of a vehicle into people at a bus stop last week in a Hareidi area. The terrorist who drove the vehicle was killed on the spot.

There is nothing like seeing an armed soldier in his IDF uniform to instill a bit of pride and security in people as well as being déjà vu of the Six-Day War in 1967, when the Old City, Mount Scopus, home of Hadassah Hospital, and other areas in southern, northern and eastern Jerusalem were restored to the city.

This week began with relative quiet, rock-throwing continues in several locations in Judea and Samaria, but no major incidents have been reported.

Arab Rock-Throwers Injure Baby

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Palestinian Authority rock-throwing terrorists wounded a baby near the community of Maaleh Levunah in Samaria Tuesday might. Her father, who was behind the wheel, continued driving, and the baby was treated at Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus for light injuries.

Another motorist was pelted with rocks near Tekoa, in eastern Gush Etzion, after he stopped his car because of an accident.

Near Tekoa, a soldier was treated on the spot for light inquires after being by hit rocks.

A soldier was treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital afar suffering light injuries from rock-throwing at Kalandia, near Ramallah.

Terrorists attacked a vehicle with a firebomb near Neguhot, south of Hebron, but no injuries or damage was reported. Further south, several vehicles sustained damage from rocks at the Zif junction, near the city of Yatta, on Highway 60 between Kiryat Arba-Hebron and Arad. The area has been relatively quiet for months until the latest escalation of violence.

Near the Tapuach Junction in Samaria, Border Police foiled a stabbing attack. They grabbed a terrorist when he refused to obey orders to stop for inspection. He dropped a knife, and officers found a second knife in his possession.

At Har Adar, near the security fence, Border Police shot and wounded an Arab in the leg during a riot near the rear entrance to the community.

Palestinian Authority media reported that 129 Arabs were injured in clashes on Tuesday, but the numbers usually are exaggerated and often include people who were hurt in home and work accidents. A spokesman for the Red Crescent told the Ma’an News Agency that soldiers wounded eight rioters with live fire and 23 others with rubber bullets,

It added that the Palestinian Authority “has warned that “attacks by Israeli soldiers and settlers indicate the Israeli government is deliberately creating a situation of violence and instability that threatens to spiral out of control.”

IDF Helicopter Saves Palestinian Authority Baby after Heart Attack

Saturday, December 27th, 2014

An IDF helicopter evacuated a six-month-old baby to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem Saturday morning after the child suffered an apparent heart attack while on the way to Jordan for medical care.

Israeli border officials saw the baby collapse and called paramedics, who in turn sent an urgent call for a military helicopter.

Magen David medics arrived at the scene and, along with IDF doctors, resuscitated the child, but the medical staff decided he needed to be flown to a hospital immediately.

Transportation was coordinated with the IDF’s COGAT (Coordination of Government Activities in the Territories) unit, and the baby now is under care at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.

We would like to presume that the family is appreciative of Israel’s efforts.
