3 Terrorists Killed in IDF Shootout at Demolition of Gonen Murderer’s Home

Monday, November 16th, 2015

Three Arab terrorists were killed in Qalandiya, north of Jerusalem early Monday morning in a shootout with IDF soldiers at the demolition of the home of a convicted murderer.

IDF soldiers came under fire from the trio while demolishing the home of Muhammad Abu Shaheen, the terrorist who last June shot and killed hiker Danny Gonen.

Hundreds of Arabs also attacked the force at the same time with firebombs, IEDs (improvised explosive devices) and rocks, according to an IDF spokesperson. Israeli forces used riot dispersal means to disperse the mob.

During the demolition, the three Arab terrorists opened fire at the IDF soldiers, who returned fire in response to the threat. They confirmed three hits, which resulted in the three deaths.

Gonen, 25, was murdered near the Jewish community of Dolev when he stopped after visiting the Ein Buvin spring, in order to give the terrorist directions.

Friday’s Shooting Victims Identified as Kiryat Arba Rabbi and His Son

Saturday, November 14th, 2015

The victims of Palestinian Authority terrorists’ deadly shootings shortly before Shabbat have been identified as Rabbi Yaakov Litman and his 16-year-old son Natanel, who with the rest of their family were on their way to a Shabbat celebrating the upcoming marriage of the rabbi’s daughter.

Their funerals are taking place at 9 p.m. Saturday.

Rabbi Litman’s wife and one other child were wounded n the shooting. Natanel reportedly called security forces before dying from his gunshot wounds.

The murders took place two miles south of Otniel in the southern Hebron Hills. The Litmans were headed for Meitar, a large suburban Be’er Sheva located a mile inside the security fence and a checkpoint.

The terrorists escaped and are believed to have come from Dura or Yatta, where they could easily hide amid a large Arab population.

Security personnel have found an abandoned car which probably was used by the terrorists. The vehicle was south of Hebron.

Southern Hebron Hills Regional Council chairman Yochai Damri stated Saturday night:

Senior IDF officers were at the scene of the attack, including the Chief of Staff…

The army will increase patrols on roads in our area.

The terrorists want to make us afraid and make us leave. The only answer is to strengthen settlements.

Arab Terror Attacks Aimed at IDF, Light Rail Train

Friday, November 13th, 2015

Arabs attacked a Light Rail train Thursday night in northern Jerusalem and hurled rocks at Israeli security personnel early Friday in Samaria.

Riots were reported early Friday as Palestinian Authority Arabs clashed with Israeli military forces in Al-Bireh, which is adjacent to Ramallah in Samaria, about 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) north of Jerusalem.

The attackers threw stones at the IDF soldiers, according to local sources.

Elsewhere in related security news, Arab attackers threw stones Thursday night at a Light Rail train as it traveled through the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

None of the passengers were physically injured in the attack, but at least one of the cars was damaged and was taken out of service.

On Tuesday, two Arab children stabbed a 25-year-old guard aboard a Jerusalem Light Rail train in a terror attack.

The guard was slightly wounded but shot the 11-year-old who had stabbed him, while passengers restrained the other young terrorist until police arrived.

“I wanted to kill Jews to avenge my cousin Muhammad who was murdered at Damascus Gate,” one of the two young terrorists later confessed to police. He explained that he wanted to avenge the death of his cousin, who was shot and killed last month after stabbing two police officers in Jerusalem.

The two youngsters, 14-year-old Muawiyyeh Alkam and 11-year-old Ali Alkam are both residents of Shuafat. They were seen on CCTV security footage from their attack carefully observing their target on the train in nearby Pisgat Ze’ev and waiting until the guard was distracted to draw their knives and attack.

Alkam, age 11, is hospitalized in good condition at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. Remand for his 14-year-old cousin has been extended for another week by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, pending presentation of evidence by police for arraignment and indictment.

‘Human Rights’ Groups Cry over IDF Arrest of Terrorist in Hospital [video]

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Israeli security forces arrested a Hamas terrorist in a Hebron hospital early Thursday and killed his cousin who attacked them during the undercover operation.

The terrorist, 22-year-old Azzam Shaldallah, stabbed Yisrael ben Aharon in the eastern Gush Etzion community of Metzad on October 25.

Ben Aharon had stopped his car after it was hit by rocks. Shaldallah then stabbed him, but Aharon fought the terrorist and managed to shoot and wound him.

Israeli soldiers and the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) dressed in civilians clothes and infiltrated the hospital where Shaldallah was being treated and had found refuge.

Palestinian media said the security forces pretended they were bringing in a pregnant woman and then rushed to Shaldallah’s room, pulled out weapons and arrested him. The terrorist’s cousin violently interfered and was shot and killed.

Terrorists recently have evaded arrest by Israeli forces by turning themselves over to Palestinian Authority authorities, who protect them from arrest instead of handing them over to Israel.
