Rishon Lezion Stabber is Hebron Arab Terrorist

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Police have identified the Arab terrorist who stabbed three people in the central Israeli city of Rishon Lezion on Monday afternoon.

Imad al-Tarde, 19, an Arab resident of Hebron, was detained after “a stabbing spree on the streets of Rishon Lezion,” according to IDF Spokesperson Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner.

At least two of the three victims – an elderly woman and a middle-aged man — were seriously injured in the attack.

Police prevented Israeli citizens from beating and kicking the attacker, whisking him away from the scene after he was detained. Al-Tarde was transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

Rishon Lezion is located south of Tel Aviv.

IDF Shuts Down Hebron Radio Station for Incitement to Violence

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

IDF soldiers shut down a Palestinian Authority radio station run by the PA’s leading Fatah faction in Hebron late Monday night in a joint IDF and Civil Administration operation in what the IDF called “part of the ongoing battle against incitement.”

Israeli military forces confiscated broadcasting equipment at the Al Hurriya radio station “in order to prevent the incitement which has caused a flare of violence in the region over recent weeks,” the IDF Spokesperson’s office said Tuesday morning.

“Incitement has been core in aggravating, encouraging and celebrating the recent wave of terror,” said the IDF. “In the past month Palestinians have executed 29 attacks (22 stabbings, four run-over attacks and three shooting attacks) against Israeli civilians and security forces in Hebron.”

The Al Hurriya radio station was formed in 2002 in Gaza by the Fatah faction’s “Palestinian National Liberation Movement” and was transferred to Hebron after the Hamas seized control over Gaza in 2007.
The station has been shut down twice, once in 2002 and again in 2008.

Police Foil Bomb Attack on Hebron Jews

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

Police discovered on Monday an explosive device at a checkpoint and prevented what might have been a mass-casualty terrorist attack on Hebron Jews.

Security forces at the Kiosk checkpoint in Hebron found the bomb under the driver’s seat at the “Kiosk” checkpoint.

They arrested five suspects who were in the car.

Despite Cabinet Decision, Israel Releases 5 Terrorist Bodies, Arabs Celebrate

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

On October 14, the Israeli cabinet voted to no longer release any dead terrorist bodies.

Despite that decision, Palestinian Authority Arabs held funerals for 2 terrorists over the next week, which a Defence Ministry official explained to JewishPress.com was due to a mix-up in the field.

Today, the bodies of 5 more terrorists were released, and the Palestinian Authority Arabs held large celebratory funerals in Hebron for them, with thousands of participants.

Explaining the government’s actions, Defense Minister Yaalon told Israel Channel 2 that the government returned the bodies on the condition that the PA not hold any large funerals.

Ya’alon was apparently surprised the PA would break their agreement.

The leftwing Zionist Camp party made fun of Netanyahu as a result of this latest zigzag, saying, “Once again a huge gap has been revealed between the declarations of the Netanyahu government’s and its actions on the ground. The war on terror must have a clear and consistent policy. This zigzag of returning the bodies sends a message of weakness”

MK Avigdor Liberman, chairman of the Yisrael Beyteinu party, called the return of the bodies a ransom payment. Liberman described it an embarrassing concession, and said it will lead to an increase in terrorism.

Arab sources claim that up to 9 bodies were returned.

IDF Soldier Knifed in Hebron Attack, Terrorist Dead [video]

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

A Border Guard Police officer was wounded and an Arab attacker shot on Thursday morning in a terror attack near the Route 60 junction connecting Kiryat Arba with the ancient city of Hebron.

The 23-year-old Arab terrorist knifed the officer in the head and upper body, according to Magen David Adom.

The officer immediately pushed his attacker away despite his condition, even as the terrorist continued to try to stab him over and over again, according to police.

A nearby Border Guard Police officer shot the terrorist, who was mortally wounded and died shortly after.

The victim remained conscious while receiving emergency medical treatment from an IDF medic at the scene before being evacuated to a Jerusalem medical center.

The Gaza-based Hamas terror organization has secured a stronghold in Hebron within the past several years.

IDF Expects Terror to Continue for ‘Weeks to Come’

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

The IDF expects the current wave of terrorist attacks, including rock-throwing and firebombings, to continue “in the coming weeks.” In a letter obtained by The JewishPress.com and sent by a brigade commander to residents under his command in Judea and Samaria, he wrote:

The challenge we face is not a short-term issue and from what I know, it will continue in the coming weeks with the understanding that there are many factors that influence the security situation.

The IDF, Border Police, police and Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and civilian security forces continue to work night and day to return to residents a sense of security. The army has significantly beefed up patrols and guard posts on Highway 60, the major artery linking northern Samaria with Gush Etzion, Kiryat Arba-Hebron and the southern Hebron Hills. The brigade commander also wrote:

I promise we will get through this period and, God willing, return security and the feeling of security.

However, government policy is another matter. Residents of Judea and Samaria have lived for years with the same cycle of calm and violence. The calm is maintained when a large number of soldiers patrol the highways. Then, the United States and European Union work on behalf of the Palestinian Authority and demand that Israel “boost the popularity” of Mahmoud Abbas and reduce the presence of soldiers,. The next step is another escalation of violence that gives Abbas another chance to complain that the IDF is interfering with the daily life of Arabs by patrolling the roads and setting up checkpoints.

Terrorists Wound Woman at Gush Etzion, Try to Kill Soldier in Hebron

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

Knife-wielding Palestinian Authority terrorists wounded a woman at Gush Etzion and tried to stab and kill a soldier in Hebron Wednesday afternoon. The woman, around 30 years old, suffered moderate wounds in the attack outside the Roza Restaurant, located several hundred yards from the Gush Etzion junction and next to the Rami Levy supermarket. Several people nearby were treated for shock. The terrorist was arrested.

Less than an hour earlier, Israel forces in the Jewish neighborhood of Tel Rumeida in Hebron shot and killed a terrorist as he tried to stab soldiers.

This was the third straight day that terrorists tried to kill soldiers in the area between Hebron and Gush Etzion. In all cases, the terrorists were killed.

Yesterday, two knife-wielding Palestinian Authority Arabs stabbed a 19-year-old soldier guarding a hitchhiking station at Gush Etzion.

On Monday, a soldier was serious wounded with stab wounds in his neck before security forces shot and killed him in a village adjacent to Hebron.

A new pattern has emerged in stabbings, with attackers trying to kill soldiers even though it is clear they have no chance of escaping and not much more of a chance of escaping alive. In one incident, an Arab teenager who was selling chocolate-covered marshmallows to drivers lined up at a Jordan Valley checkpoint, suddenly stopped hawking the snack, pulled out a knife and started making a 200-foot run at guards. He immediately was shot and killed.
