Hebron Terrorist Stabbing Attack Thwarted by IDF

Monday, September 19th, 2016

At around 9:30 pm Monday evening, an Arab terrorist lunged at an Israeli soldier with a knife in his hand.

The incident took place in the Abu Senina neighborhood of Hebron, according to a statement by the IDF, while the forces were carrying out a patrol of the area.

The terrorist was neutralized by other soldiers in the area, who overpowered the attacker without firing their weapons. He was arrested and transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

Earlier in the day, two terrorists in Hebron tried to stab Israeli Border Guard Police officers at the Cave of the Patriarchs, near the Tel Rumeida neighborhood.

Both of the attackers, residents of Hebron, were shot by IDF soldiers stationed at the site. One of the terrorists died at the scene of the attempted stabbing; the second was pronounced dead on arrival at a nearby hospital.

Netanyahu Orders Increased Police at Temple Mount, Reinforces Ban on Lawmakers Ahead of Jewish Holy Days

Sunday, September 18th, 2016

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a security assessment in Jerusalem prior to leaving for New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly, and ahead of the Jewish holy days in the Hebrew month of Tishrei.

Attending the meeting were Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, Israel Policy Deputy Inspector General Zohar Dvir, Jerusalem District Police Commander Yoram Halevy, the deputy Director of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency), an IDF representative and personnel from the National Security Council.

The prime minister ordered police to increase forces particularly in the Old City of Jerusalem and around the Temple Mount, underscoring that “determined action be taken against any attempt to violate order there,” according to his media adviser.

Netanyahu also requested that Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein take action to “continue to prevent parliamentarians and ministers from going up to the Temple Mount during this sensitive period,” his spokesperson said in a statement.

In addition, the prime minister “directed that activity be increased against Palestinian incitement on social networks, including expanded action vis-à-vis Facebook and other platforms, with the goal of removing inflammatory content. He also instructed that a response team be established to refute disinformation about Israeli policy on the Temple Mount.”

In addition, Netanyahu received an update on IDF operations and reinforcements along the roads and in the Jewish communities of Judea and Samaria.

Barely a few hours prior to the meeting, a terrorist from the Palestinian Authority stabbed and seriously wounded an IDF reservist at a guard post in the Judean city of Efrat, only eight minutes south of Jerusalem. The terrorist had infiltrated the community late Saturday night, and dozens of IDF soldiers, reservists and local security response personnel had spent the entire night searching the city and surrounding fields to track him down.

The attack came on the heels of a series of terrorist stabbings of IDF soldiers and other attacks against Israelis in Judea and Samaria, at least three of which took place in Hebron. In response, the IDF beefed up its forces in the holy city next to Kiryat Arba, but other Jewish communities are still vulnerable.

On Friday afternoon barely an hour before the start of the Sabbath, an Arab couple from the nearby town of Bani Naim carried out a vehicle ramming attack at the Elias Junction entrance to Kiryat Arba on Highway 60, next to the Paz gas station, at the bus stop and hitchhiking post. IDF soldiers stationed at the site shot and killed the male terrorist and wounded the female attacker; but three Israeli teenagers were injured and suffered major trauma as well. All three were treated for their relatively minor physical wounds and the major shock they endured.

Within hours, the IDF surrounded and sealed off Bani Naim, which also was home to the teenage terrorist who climbed in the window of the Kiryat Arba home of 13-year-old Hallel Ariel, z’l, at the start of this summer and stabbed her to death while she slept in her bed.

It’s not known how long the closure will last. But Arab villages have been sealed off before, and when the curfew is lifted, terrorists are free to leave and kill Israelis again, inspired and financially remunerated for their efforts by the government of the Palestinian Authority.

The prime minister is clearly hoping that beefed up police at the Temple Mount and in the Old City will contain, if not entirely eliminate Arab terror attacks while he is meeting with President Barack Obama in New York, and addressing the United Nations General Assembly: a gathering that for the most part could care less these days whether Israelis live or die.

It’s Netanyahu’s unenviable job to remind them of why they should care, if only for their own survival — and Israel’s — and the last thing he wants or needs is trouble at home by Knesset members who take the opportunity while he is away to create “a distraction.”

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.

American-Born Hebron Pioneer Eddie Dribben Dies at 85

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

Eddie Dribben, one of the first settlers in Kiryat Araba and Hebron, passed away Thursday morning at age 85. Malachi Levinger wrote in his Facebook page that Dribben was a dedicated man who brought to life with his own ten fingers the industrial park of the City of the Patriarchs. Dribben remained dedicated and focused despite the tragedy that struck him and his wife Sara, when their son Dov was murdered by local Arabs in 1998.

Dov Dribben was ambushed by eight Arabs as he was working near the Jewish community of Havat Maon. At the time, then Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, speaking at a news conference in Jerusalem with visiting British Prime Minister Tony Blair, said that “this young man was killed in cold blood,” and declared that “it’s straightforward murder.” But in 2004, a military court acquitted the central suspect in the Dov Dribben murder, Ahmed Dababsa, who was also found not guilty on a second count of attacking and injuring Dribben’s two friends, Yehoshafat Tor and Efraim Perl.

Eddie Dribben, a former Texas Ranger who made aliyah in 1954, reacted with shock to the court’s decision, saying, “I’ve spent all my years in Israel farming and herding sheep right alongside the Arabs. My Arabic is as good as my Hebrew. Only someone who doesn’t have a close familiarity with the inner workings of the Arab clans and doesn’t understand that such a decision to murder a Jew is reached by an entire clan and everyone knows about it, could make such a ruling. It is plain stupid.”

Eddie Dribben’s funeral will leave his home in the industrial park of Kiryat Arba at 3:30 PM Thursday, on its way to the Cave of Machpela plaza, where eulogies will begin at 4 PM. The burial at the old Jewish cemetery of Hebron is scheduled for 5 PM.

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

On Monday, vigilant policemen in the Old City of Jerusalem caught a 24-year-old Arab woman who was planning to commit a terror attack, according to Israeli police.

The woman, a Palestinian Authority resident, raised the suspicion of policemen stationed in the city. They checked her bag and found a large knife.

The woman said she was there to stab police officers.

This wasn’t the woman’s first time. In fact, she had been previously caught three times with a knife.

In her previous attempts, she was caught at a Hebron checkpoint where she said she was planning to stab security personnel.
