2 IDF Soldiers Wounded, 5 Bombs Still ‘Hot’ in Attack at Hizme Checkpoint

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

An IDF officer and a second soldier were wounded Tuesday night in a quadruple bomb attack at the Hizme checkpoint, while an hour later five more bombs were defused by IDF sappers.

The IED (improvised explosive device) were detonated by terrorists as the officer was searching a suspicious package planted on the road at the entrance to the checkpoint.

Two pipe bombs were discovered attached to a gas canister shortly after that initial bombing attack, according to local sources. The Adam junction was evacuated for the safety of everyone in the area.

Sappers then discovered five more additional bombs as well, including that which was tied up with the gas canister. The bomb squad carefully worked on dismantling all five bombs at the site.

The IDF officer, meanwhile, was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center with serious face and upper body wounds, according to Magen David Adom medics on the scene. The victim sustained head and facial wounds but was fully conscious.

A second soldier was in stable condition after sustaining shrapnel wounds in the leg. He too was treated at the scene before he was evacuated for further treatment.

The Hizme checkpoint is located near the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev, not far from the Jewish community of Adam.

Roadside IED Explodes Next to Passing Vehicle Near Otniel

Friday, March 11th, 2016

A masked terrorist exploded a roadside bomb on the road north of Otniel, in the Har Hebron region, according to a TPS report. There is an alternative report that the terrorist threw a pipe bomb.

The attack happened on Friday morning, around 7:30 AM. The Har Hebron Regional Council said the attack was on the road between Otniel and Beit Hagai.

The bomb exploded just as the car passed by, causing light damage to the front of woman’s vehicle from a fragment that penetrated into the front of the vehicle.

The woman (30), a resident of Otniel, said she saw a masked man on the road.

She passed him and said something didn’t look right.

There was then what she described as a large explosion from the ground below her car that blew dirt all over the place. She was not injured in the attack.

She, wisely, didn’t stop and drove to safety until she reached Kiryat Arab.

British Mandate Period Anti-Tank Mine Found, Defused in Netanya

Sunday, January 17th, 2016

Israel Police sappers examined and carefully removed an anti-tank land mine that was planted in Netanya during the British Mandate period.

The mine was being used against Mark II Infantry tanks. There are two types of tanks known as “Mark II”: the British “Matilda (A12) Mark II, and the Israeli Merkava Mark II.

The British Matilda A12 was introduced into service in 1937. The Israeli Merkava Mark II made its debut in April 1983.

Of the two, it is more likely that landmine found in Netanya was set by Israeli fighters to detonate against British forces during the Mandate period.

In any case, today’s modern sappers carefully removed the bomb and safely defused it.

Israeli Sappers Detonate Roadside Bomb on Samaria Road

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Israeli police sappers were called Wednesday evening to detonate a roadside bomb apparently planted by Palestinian Arab terrorists on a road in Samaria.

The trap was well laid: The explosive appeared to be an unobtrusive object on the road connecting the small Jewish communities of Peduel and Bruchin.

The sappers detonated the object – which actually was a bomb – without fanfare. No injuries were reported in the incident.

Earlier this evening, a Border Guard Police officer sustained facial wounds while she was working to disperse a mob of stone-throwing Palestinian Arabs who were attacking the police. The officer, who required medical treatment, was evacuated to a medical facility.

IDF Soldiers Bombed in Gush Etzion, Rocks Hurled at Border Police in Jerusalem

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

Palestinian Arab terrorists bombed IDF soldiers in Gush Etzion Saturday night. The terrorists hurled three improvised explosive devices (IED) at the soldiers while they were out on patrol.

The attack took place near the Arab village of Beit Fajar, close to the Jewish community of Migdal Oz and the Arab community of El Aroub. No injuries were reported.

In the capital, two Palestinian Arab terror suspects were arrested in the Jerusalem suburb of Issawiya also Saturday night, on the orders of a judge.

While the soldiers were operating in the neighborhood, Palestinian Arab terrorists began hurling rocks at Border Guard Police.

The troops chased the perpetrators and arrested five suspects.

Palestinian Arab terrorists also firebombed an IDF base east of Jerusalem late Saturday night, and then attacked the firefighters who came to extinguish the blaze that was ignited around the watchtower.

The two firefighter crews who arrived at the scene were met by a hail of rocks and an exploding Molotov cocktail.

IDF soldiers responded with non-lethal riot dispersal measures.

The attack took place at the Anatot Base, just east of the Mount of Olives and Mount Scopus, and mimicked an attack Thursday that was nearly identical. That attack took place at Jerusalem’s Ofrit Base on Mount Scopus, near the Hadassah University campus and not far from Saturday night’s attack.
