17 Arab Terrorist Suspects Captured, Assault Weapons Cache Discovered

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

It was another busy night for Israeli security personnel as troops found a weapons cache in the Judean Arab town of Yatta, and “mapped out” the home of a terrorist in Samaria.

Joint operations involving IDF soldiers, Israel Police and Border Guard Police officers led to the capture and arrest of 17 wanted terrorist suspects in Judea and Samaria late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

Two of the detainees were members of the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist organization. The others are accused of violent attacks on Israeli civilians and security personnel. All were transferred to the appropriate authorities for interrogation.

A cache of Kalashnikov assault rifles, hunting rifles and rifle sights was found by an IDF combat unit of the 401 Brigade armored division in the town of Yatta, a sprawling Hebron suburb south of the ancient city.

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

An Arab terrorist attempted to stab an Israeli soldier at a security checkpoint early Sunday afternoon in the ancient Judean city of Hebron.

No Israeli injuries were reported in the second attack.

Update: Kiryat Arba and Police at Odds on Who Threw Rocks at Jews

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

Police and Kiryat Arba officials are at odds on whether Jews or Arab threw rocks at a Jewish motorist Saturday night, slightly injuring a four-year-old boy.

The deputy mayor of Kiryat Arba has charged that police blatantly lied by stating Sunday morning that two Jewish minors threw rocks at cars and injured a four-year-old Jewish boy Saturday night.

The JewishPress.com reported here this morning, “The IDF arrested two Jewish teenagers after they hurled rocks at passing cars and mistakenly smashed a window of the vehicle of an Israeli family, whose four-year-old boy was slightly injured by shattered glass.”

The Kiryat Arba official said that the boys were at a demonstration for a stronger hand by the IDF against Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists, including rock-throwers.

He maintained that the boys testified to the police as witnesses to the rock-throwing attack, but that police turned around the testimony and accused the boys of the crime.

Police issued an update Sunday morning that the boys’ testimony involved rock-throwing by other Jewish youth.

According to a police statement:

The two boys gave testimony on rock-throwing and both of them were released after they gave evidence.

Following an investigation, it was learned that a group of minors who were protesting with an Israeli flag about the security situation on Highway 60 were on their way home to Kiryat Arba when some of them threw rocks at cars, causing injuries to the child.

 

Arab Terrorist Wannabe Dies in Attack Attempt at Halhul Junction

Friday, December 11th, 2015

An Arab wannabe terrorist attempted to carry out a vehicle ramming attack Friday at the Halhul Junction — but he didn’t quite make it.

The failed terrorist aimed his vehicle at IDF soldiers who were conducting security checks at the junction, and tried to run them over.

The alert troops shot and killed him instead, then searched his body to make sure there were no other “surprises” in store.

Among other items, the soldiers found a knife during their search of the terrorist’s body, making it clear that many would have been hurt in the ram-and-stab attack he obviously planned, had his efforts succeeded.

No Israelis were reported wounded in the attempted attack, which took place about 10 minutes’ drive north of Kiryat Arba-Hebron.

3 Terrorists’ Homes Demolished in Hebron

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

IDF soldiers gathered in Hebron overnight Wednesday into Thursday to demolish the homes of three Arab terrorists.

Each of the attackers was responsible for carrying out a stabbing terror attack against Israelis last week.

Palestinian Authority activists have been collecting funds to rebuilding the homes of terrorists when they are demolished by the Israeli government.

As of three days ago, one Hebron Arab contributed NIS 114,421 to the fund, according to a tweet by Daoud Kuttab on the Twitter social networking site.

UPDATE: Hebron Terrorist Killed after Stabbing 2 Jews

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

A Palestinian Authority terrorist stabbed two men, one of them a soldier, at the Hebron Jewish neighborhood of Beit Hadassah around 1 p.m. (6 a.m. EDT) Wednesday.

A Hebron security officer shot and killed the terrorist, whose cousin carried out a terror attack in Hebron three days ago.

One of the victims, a soldier suffered serious wounds. The second victim suffered light wounds and was identified as Yitzchak Strook, son of Hebron resident and former Knesset Member Orit Strook. Despite his wounds, he pushed the terrorist away until the security officer shot him.

Both were described as being in their 20s.

Magen David Adom medics treated the wounded at the scene before they were evacuated to a hospital in Jerusalem.

A Hebron resident told Kol Yisrael radio (Voice of Israel) that the terrorist struck at the same place where a terrorist struck last week.

Police Foil Stabbing Attempt by 18-Year-old Hebron Terrorist

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

Another stabbing attack was prevented by Israeli security forces Saturday afternoon when an 18-year-old Hebron woman was caught with a knife in her hands at a checkpoint.

Border Police were conducting searches when they saw her with a knife, and she was arrested without any shots being fired.

The number of young female terrorists has risen sharply since the latest wave of escalating violence and reflects a generation or orchestrated incitement by the Palestinian Authority school system and media.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon has stated that the phenomenon of the “lone terrorist” is not going to disappear quickly.

Israeli’s best defense against attacks that are not carried out by organized terror cells is total alertness by civilians, police and soldiers.
