Report: Ashkelon Terrorist Was ISIS Supporter

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

A terrorist who stabbed a soldier in Ashkelon earlier this month turns out to have been a Sudani supporter of Da’esh (ISIS).

Kamal Aysh Aziz Hassan Mohammed, 32, was a Sudanese citizen who infiltrated into Israel a number of years ago, according to the findings of a joint investigation by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Israel Police Southern District.

Among other factors, the investigation revealed the attacker was a devout Muslim and that his mobile phone contained photos of various Da’esh (ISIS) operatives from around the world. His attack that day apparently was fueled by inspiration from Da’esh.

On February 7, Mohammed stabbed an IDF soldier at the intersection of Ben Gurion Boulevard and British Jewry in Ashkelon.

After the attack, Mohammed escaped, fleeing into a residential neighborhood.

A second soldier saw the stabbing and immediately ran after the suspect, who fled, but was chased down and then shot by his pursuer who had quickly closed the distance and neutralized him.

Mohammed was seriously wounded in the incident, and later died of his wounds at Ashkelon’s Barzilai Medical Center.

It turns out he had a record of violent crimes in Israel, separate and apart from whatever he might have done in his country of origin before infiltrating the Jewish State.

Mohammed was arrested in 2009 on suspicion of involvement in violent crimes; he also escaped from the Holon facility in 2014 and since that time has lived in Ashdod and Ashkelon. It seems that the attack was inspired by the Da’esh terror organization.

The findings were released as part of the joint investigation by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the southern district Israel Police.

Suspected Terrorist Nabbed in Southern Israel, Alert Continues

Monday, January 11th, 2016

A suspected terrorist infiltrator was captured Monday morning in the Jewish Gaza Belt community of Sderot, shortly after a high alert was sent out by the Shin Bet.

Dozens of roadblocks were set up in southern Israel Monday morning as police worked quickly to hunt down the possible terrorist infiltrator.

A state of emergency was declared, prompted by a concrete warning from the Shin Bet about a young woman imminently planning a terror attack in the area.

However, a different suspect was picked up within the hour and arrested by security personnel. The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) subsequently announced the original terrorist had apparently not crossed into the area.

Law enforcement is still on the alert and the public has been warned to remain vigilant, despite the removal of roadblocks in the area.

The original suspect, Diana Hamad, is shown in the image that accompanies this article and which has been released by law enforcement officials.

IDF Shoots at Gaza Infiltrators; Hamas Claims One Killed

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

Israel soldiers shot at two Gaza Arabs who refused to heed orders to halt when they approached the security fence, and Hamas sources claimed one of the men was killed, the first reported death in security incidents since the end of the last round of Hamas-led attacks on Israel in August.

Military spokesmen said the soldiers shot at the legs of the Arabs, but Hamas reported that 32-year-old Faid Mohammed Halawah was pronounced dead on arrival at a hospital in Jabaliya, in northern Gaza.

The IDF said that the Arabs refused to comply” and “fired at the lower extremities, confirming one hit.”

An Israel leader of a regional council in the Gaza Belt area said there have been 12 attempts this month of Gaza Arabs trying to infiltrate into Israel.

And exactly what was the explanation this time for men walking in a clearly posted and widely known prohibited area?

This time they were not trying to collect scrap metal

They were not playing soccer.

They were not mentally retarded, as Hamas often claims, without referring to the Hamas leadership.

No, this time, according to relatives of Halawah who was quoted by the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency, they were searching for “song birds,” which command a high price in Gaza.

Report: Intruder Actually Reached East Room of White House

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

A man who jumped the fence surrounding the White House grounds earlier this month actually made it all the way to the East Room, The Washington Post reported on Monday, Sept. 29.

Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, overpowered a female Secret Service agent inside the North Portico entrance of the White House.

Gonzalez then ran through the East Room, making it nearly all the way through before he was tackled as he tried to enter the Green Room, a Congressional official said.

Previously journalists were told by Secret Service officials that the man had only reached a few steps inside the North Portico entrance before he was stopped.

It is expected the startling breach in security will be reviewed at a bipartisan hearing with testimony from Secret Service director Julia Pierson on Tuesday.

According to The New York Times, Pierson will be raked over the coals by the panel over what appears to be a possible erosion in the agency’s ability to protect the president and his family.

Terrorist Infiltrator Foiled Near Gaza Border

Sunday, September 28th, 2014

An armed Arab infiltrator was caught red-handed Sunday by the security coordinator of Shokeda religious moshav in southern Israel.

The suspect, who was carrying a knife and a hand drill, is believed to have sneaked in through the border in the Nachal Oz area. It is not yet known how he managed to get through the security fence and past the IDF lookouts.

He then walked over to Shokeda in the Sdot Negev Regional Council district, about seven kilometers (4.3 miles) from the Gaza border.

The suspect was turned over to security forces for further questioning.

The area’s kibbutzim and moshavim are usually filled to capacity with holiday tourists at this time of year. This year, however, they are still seeing vacancies, said Amit Lavkov, tourism association CEO.

“People want to make sure it’s really calm and the cease-fire has lasted,” Lavkov said. “There are fewer tourists than last year.
