UPDATE: (Sort-of) Terrorist Arrested in Hebron

Friday, April 17th, 2015

An 18-year-old Palestinian Authority man was arrested in Hebron on Friday afternoon.

The man threatened to stab an IDF soldier who was standing guard near the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

The man approached the soldier and told him that he wanted to stab a soldier and then be arrested, and he then showed the soldier his folded knife.

The soldier pointed his gun at the man, and told him to not come any closer. The Golani soldiers nearby arrested the sort-of terrorist and took away his knife.

The man was handed over to security services for questioning.

The original report indicated the man was 16, and tried to stab the soldier.

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Niv Asraf and Eran Nagauker are expected to face indictments next week after faking the kidnapping of Asraf last week, near the Arab village of Beit Ayoun and The Jewish town of Kiryat Arba.

Thousands of soldiers, police and Shabak officers took part in the 8 hour search for the supposedly missing man, who was hiding in a wadi in Kiryat Arba with food provisions and a sleeping bag.

It is not yet known why they faked the kidnapping, but it may have been done to impress a girl.

UPDATED: Jewish Man Missing, Kidnapping Suspected Near Hebron

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Israeli security forces continue to search for a 22-year-old Jewish man who went missing around 4:20 pm Thursday afternoon. Both he and the friend with whom he was driving in the area are residents of Be’er Sheva, according to a report on Israel’s Channel 2 television.

Police received a call at the Judea and Samaria District Police 100 Center from a man who said his friend had gone to look for tools to fix a flat tire. It had been more than an hour since he left, but had not yet returned.

Palestinian media have already published a photo of the man, as well as his name, but these details are being withheld from Israeli media under gag order.

The incident occurred after the car in which he and his friend were driving broke down at the Beit Anoun junction outside Hebron, near the Jewish community of Kiryat Arba.

Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Jewish Press.com that police officers and IDF troops immediately launched an intensive search which has since widened to include the areas around the Palestinian Authority towns of Halhul and El Aroub, both located north of Beit Anoun and Hebron.

Officials said the missing man was wearing a KKL hoodie and a pair of jeans.

Israel Police and Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) forces have continued to operate at the intelligence level in the area as well, and by nightfall were working on the assumption he had been kidnapped.

Roads leading to and from the village of Beit Anoun via Highway 60 and Highway 35 were closed in order to stymie any potential kidnappers.

The area of Beit Anoun is close to Hebron and the Jewish community of Kiryat Arba.

7:34 PM There are reports that the car did not have a flat tire, and it was parked close to Kiryat Arba so there was no reason for the man to enter Beit Anoun when Kiryat Arba was closer. The explanation the friend gave is problematic; he is being questioned again by security personnel.

The man also left his telephone in the car; it’s not clear whether that was deliberate or accidental.

Regardless of the reason the man entered the Arab village, however, Israeli forces are treating his disappearance as a full-blown security incident.

The area around Halhul and El Aroub is now closed as IDF troops move from house to house searching for the missing man, whose identity still has not been released for publication.

8:09 PM His friend who stayed with the car is a Bedouin. The car did not have a flat tire, but it appears someone did release some air from the tire to make it look flat.

Security forces suspect this began as criminal activity, but has ended up a nationalistic kidnapping, according to Channel 10.

8:13 pm Channel 2 reported that the friend has changed his version of the story three times in telling it to the security forces.

9:20 pm A field command center has been set up in the Kiryat Arba gas station as the search for the missing Israeli mans continues and expands.

Arab Officials Destroy Food Supplies Delivered by Israeli Truck to Hebron

Friday, March 20th, 2015

It’s not clear who the unlucky store owner was, but wise was he for not fighting Arab officials who ransacked an Israeli delivery truck in Hebron this week (March 16).

A mob of Palestinians swarmed to watch the spectacle, most occupied with their cell phones, arms extended to record the event for posterity and the Internet.

Boxes of Tnuva milk were flung to the ground, their precious white nutrient spilling all over the street. No Arab babies will grow strong teeth and bones from that spilt milk this weekend – but the wildly cheering crowd could have cared less.

Other goods in a riotous montage of reds, yellows and greens also were splattered as their packaging split when they struck the rough street around the truck.

It seemed to be a straightforward enough sight: “Arabs in Hebron broke into an Israeli delivery truck and destroyed all the packages within, tossing them onto the street to the wild cheers of the crowd,” reported the Elder of Zion blog, who sourced the report from FajerTV.

But according to commentators on the blog, local merchants already long ago restricted deliveries to Palestinian drivers, using Palestinian trucks, and shipments made only after payment received in full. The first, according to a local source, was “due to security reasons,” and the second “because collecting debts in the PA by Israelis is practically impossible.”

The Israel Electric Company has also discovered the reality of that second issue; in fact power to a number of PA communities has been shut down due to the millions of shekels owed to the company by the Palestinian Authority, which has been impossible to collect.

More than one commentator agreed this week that regardless of why Israeli goods are boycotted, a lack of supplies will “still be portrayed as ‘Those dastardly Israelis are intentionally starving the so-called ‘Palestinians’ … Just like you-know-who did to you-know-who…’ “

Another commentator suggested as a solution that if Israel ever decides to transfer funds to the PA, such monies should be given by “filling a food truck with the cash and driving it slowly through Hebron.”
