IDF Soldiers Attacked With Stones, Firebombs and Firework Weapons

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Israeli security forces in Jerusalem were attacked over the 26-hour period of Yom Kippur with every possible means of violence available to the rioting population in the Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem.

Israeli Border Guard Police officers patrolling the neighborhood of Silwan (Shiloach) were attacked by terrorists hurling rocks, boulders, cement blocks, firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and lit fireworks directly at the soldiers.

Each of the different weapons used can be, and in a number of cases in the past has been, deadly.

During the day, rioters became extremely violent and in one came hurled lethal projectiles directly at the forces; when the officers’ lives became endangered, they opened fire at the mob and identified a hit.

The rioters fled, taking their injured terrorist with them. Israeli forces who subsequently searched for the suspect who hurled the deadly projectile did not find him, and residents in the area claimed he had died and was buried overnight.

Overnight, there was more rioting, this time with Arab terrorists hurling firebombs at Israeli forces in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar. The rioters were dispersed using routine methods.

In the Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiya, masked terrorists hurled firebombs, stones and lit fireworks at Israeli forces. They also set fire to trash bins and blocked the entrance to the neighborhood.

Israeli forces responded to the violence with routine mob dispersal methods.

Border Guard Officer Wounded in Clashes With Arab Rioters in A-Ram

Monday, October 10th, 2016

A Border Guard police officer was wounded Monday in clashes with Arab rioters in the northern Jerusalem suburb of A-Ram.

The officer sustained a hand wound when an Arab attacker hurled a lit firecracker at him during the clashes in “Taxi Square.” He was evacuated to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center, and is listed in good condition.

Two Israeli drivers who accidentally arrived at the square during the riots came under a hail of rocks hurled by the attackers. Both managed to escape the violence and fled the village.

A-Ram is located next to the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Neve Yaakov, a Jewish neighborhood.

Residents of A-Ram had been rioting off and on in the suburb since Sunday, after a Jerusalem Arab terrorist died after killing a grandmother and a police officer in the Ammunition Hill neighborhood. Four other people were also wounded, including a second police officer, and several others badly traumatized in the attack.

Several Israeli security forces were also wounded in A-Ram on Sunday by the stones hurled by the Arab attackers.

IDF engineers, backed by security and other Israeli forces demolished the home of Muhammad Taraiyre, in accordance with Israeli policy, which mandated the destruction of the family home of any Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist who murders an Israeli.

The eighth grader was stabbed dozens of times on the morning after having participated in a dance event organized by the local dance arts center in Kiryat Arba. Her bedroom was covered in blood by the time the security team reached her, witnesses said.

She passed away a few hours after the attack in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, and was laid to rest in the ancient Jewish cemetery in Hebron.

One of the Rapid Response Team security personnel who raced to the scene when the infiltrator’s presence was detected was also critically injured at the scene. Yehoshua Gilboa is a member of a famiy that has already lost two sons to terrorism, and is a volunteer with the Kiryat Arba security team.

Shuki Gilboa was stabbed by the attacker, and also sustained a bullet wound as the result of friendly fire during the clash with the terrorist. He ultimately lost the sight in his right eye as a result of the battle but doctors at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center were able to save his life.

An Arab terrorist is believed to have carried out a vehicle ramming attack against IDF soldiers early Wednesday evening as they were traveling in a military vehicle on Highway 60 in Judea, near the Jewish community of Neve Daniel.

The site is about eight minutes’ drive south of Jerusalem. The Arab driver crashed his vehicle head-on into the IDF vehicle.

The latter two are in fair condition. All were evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Security personnel and IDF soldiers closed down the highway and set up road blocks and launched a search of the area for any accomplices.

This was the second travel attack perpetrated by Arabs on Wednesday.

Rocks were thrown by Arab terrorists at the Jerusalem Light Rail as it made its way through the capital. It’s not the first time the railway has been targeted by terrorists.

The first car on the train was damaged but no one was physically injured. Police are searching for the terrorists.
