IDF Shoots to Scare Gaza Arabs Away from Security Fence

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Israeli soldiers deployed at the Gaza security fence shot over the heads of Arabs who had approached the no-go zone Monday, Palestinian Authority media reported. No one was injured.

Arabs frequently approached the security fence, usually with intentions to infiltrate into Israel or to carry out a terrorist attack on the spot.

Palestinian Authority media usually report that Arabs at the fence are “playing soccer “or looking for metal.”

Gaza Launches Rocket Attack, Israelis Not Warned

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

Israeli residents were not aware of it, but Arab terrorists launched two rockets at the southern region late Saturday night from northern Gaza. It appears that the rocket may have miraculously landed short.

The Code Red incoming rocket alert siren did not activate, although it is not clear why.

Security personnel are searching the area along the border to see whether any projectiles landed in on the Israeli side of the security fence.

Sometimes the launch misfires or the rockets malfunction and land instead in Gaza.

Thus far, there is no information on damage or injuries on either side of the border, and it is not clear which terror group is responsible for the launch. Nevertheless, Israel holds the ruling Hamas organization responsible for any hostile activity emanating from Gaza.

Arabs Attack Israeli Forces Over Deaths of Innocent Baby, Teen Terrorist

Saturday, August 1st, 2015

Arabs across Judea, Samaria and Arab areas of Jerusalem clashed with Israeli forces over the Sabbath, beginning Friday night and continuing on into Saturday over the deaths of an innocent baby and a 17-year-old terrorist.

Hamas ignited the violence with Friday’s declaration of a “Day of Rage” following clashes at the Temple Mount. At least one police officer was wounded in the riots from broken glass. Violent Arab “worshipers” who had been allowed to enter the site to pray hurled rocks, bottles and other projectiles at the officers. One arrest was made.

Another violent mob of Arab teens hurled rocks at the entrance to Qalandiya, near northern Jerusalem. Border Guard Police officers were called to the scene to disperse the riot with tear gas and other measures.

Arabs also rioted Friday in the eastern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Isawiya, hurling firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and rocks at Israel security forces. The mob was eventually moved back into the center of the neighborhood with crowd dispersal measures.

Highway 65 in Wadi Ara was blocked on Saturday by some 200 Arabs over the arson death in Duma of 22-month-old Ali Dawabsheh. His parents and brother were also seriously wounded as well. An eyewitness said four Jews were seen tossing a firebomb into the open window of the family’s small home and then fleeing. An IDF helicopter airlifted the victims to Tel HaShomer Hospital in Tel Aviv; IDF forces continue to scour the countryside in search of the perpetrators. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and government ministers have vowed to bring the arsonists to justice.

The protesters set fires near Ayn al-Sahla and waved Palestinian Authority flags, set fires, and when an Israeli police vehicle arrived on the scene, attacked the officers with rocks while yelling t them to bring the murderers to justice.

Israeli Arab Knesset members Jamal Zahalka and Yousef Jabareen – although not part of the road-block – were there as participants in the protest, according to Ynet.

Following the funeral for 17-year-old Leith Khalidi, Arab teens clashed with Israeli forces at Jelazoun Saturday afternoon. Khalidi was shot and killed after firebombing soldiers Friday night near Birzeit, north of Ramallah.

The violence was not limited to this past Sabbath, nor to Israeli forces: since the start of the previous Sabbath, 22 Jews were injured in 60 recorded terror attacks, compiled by the Hebrew-language HaKol HaYehudi website.

The attacks included firebombings, targeted fireworks, rock attacks, burned fields, bombings with explosive devices and firebomb attacks on Jewish homes.

IDF Helicopter Flew Arson Victims to Tel Aviv Hospital [video]

Friday, July 31st, 2015

The IDF has released a video showing Palestinian Authority medics and Israeli soldiers working together to carry a victim of the arson-murder Friday morning to a military helicopter.

The aircraft flew to Tel HaShomer Hospital.

An 18-month-old baby dies in the “price-tag” arson, and the mother and another child are un critical condition.

The Jewish terrorists threw a Molotov cocktail into the window of the victims’ small home in the village of Duma, near Shechem. Four Jews fled the scene, according to eyewitnesses.

The IDF and police are combing Judea and Samaria to search and arrest the attackers.

The funeral for the baby will take place after Muslim prayers Friday morning. The major of Duma said he is sure Israeli authorities will do everything they can to catch the criminals, but added he cannot do anything to prevent villagers from expressing their rage.

‘Settler’ Leaders Denounces Arson-Murder, but Rabbis Still Silent

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Leaders of Judea and Samaria and right-wing politicians denounced Friday’s “price-tag” arson-murder attack, but rabbis have not yet publicly joined the chorus of disgust.

The Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria (Yesha) and the Binyamin Regional Council stated:

We express our shock of the terrible murder last night in the village of Duma. This is not the path of residents of Judea and Samaria who are struggling with the complicated security situation while trying to remain the fabric of life of our Palestinian neighbors.”

Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) Knesset Member Betzalel Smotritz also denounced the arson-murder and added that regardless of the “hypocrisy of certain extreme left-wing sources and the government mismanagement, it is absolutely forbidden to lose our senses, which is what seems to have happened last night.

“We need nerves of steel and not let ourselves be dragged into such actions that are in themselves evil and also are damaging to ourselves.

There is no doubt that rabbis, especially those of Judea and Samaria, will denounce the terror, but they are taking too much time.

“Yesha rabbis” for years have been too silent in the wake of price tag attacks, which until last night  were too easily dismissed as “vandalism” that never  came even near to the savage Palestinian Authority terrorist attacks against Jews,

That no longer is true.

It was not true as of last year when three Jews burned to death a Jerusalem Arab teenager in revenge for the kidnap-murders of three Jewish yeshiva youth.

Rabbis have been too silent in cleaning up their own acts of bribery, corruption and sex crimes.

Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu of Safed (Tzfat) showed true leadership last month when he expelled Rabbi Ezra Scheinberg from the city after women complained to him that he had seduced and raped them.

That is the kind of leadership that has been lacking in Judea and Samaria..

No one can justifiably blame Yesha rabbis for last night’s barbaric crime, but no one can say that the rabbis have waged war against Jewish youth who have lost their marbles.

Hamas Calls for ‘Exceptional’ Response to Arson-Murder

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Hamas’s spokesman in Qatar issued a call Friday morning for an “exceptional” response to Friday morning’s apparent “price tag” arson attack that killed an Arab baby and left his mother and another child in critical condition.

“We will teach settlers a lesson,” the spokesman added.

Israeli security forces are on high alert, and civilians are taking extra precautions because of the possibility of rocket attacks from Gaza and attempts to kidnap and murder Jews throughout Israel.

The Fatah party, headed by Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas, called this morning’s attack “a crime against humanity.”

PA leaders across the laid the blame for the arson attack squarely on the Netanyahu government, which thoroughly denounced the murder as “terror,” as has done virtually every leader in the country.

 

Netanyahu ‘Shocked over Horrific Attack’

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu issued a statement after this mornings’ arson-murder, apparently by  price-tag terrorists, near Shechem (Nablus):

I am shocked over this reprehensible and horrific act. This is an act of terrorism in every respect.

The State of Israel takes a strong line against terrorism regardless of who the perpetrators are.

I have ordered the security forces to use all means at their disposal to apprehend the murderers and bring them to justice forthwith. The Government of Israel is united in its strong opposition to such deplorable and awful acts.

On behalf of the citizens of Israel, I would like to share in the sorrow of the family of Ali Darawshe and wish a quick recovery to the family members who were injured.”
