IDF Arrests PA Terror Cop’s Brother, Revokes Family Work Permit

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Israeli forces have arrested the brother of a Palestinian Authority special forces police officer who attacked IDF soldiers at the ‘Focus’ checkpoint outside Ramallah a day earlier.

“Manning a checkpoint is a challenging mission,” said IDF Spokesperson Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner in a post on Facebook. “Hours of mundane service watching vehicles go by, looking for suspicious movements. Hours and hours of being prepared to respond to that split moment when an attacker engages.”

Muhammad Turkman was killed by the other Israeli soldiers at the checkpoint when he shot and wounded the three IDF troops in Monday’s attack.

His brother, 23-year-old Muhannad Turkman was arrested less than 24 hours later, in a raid that took place in the wee hours of Tuesday morning.

IDF soldiers also revoked the Israeli work permits issued to the family during the raid at their home in Qabatiya, south of Jenin, said the IDF.

Local residents hurled stones and cinder blocks at the soldiers who came to make the arrest and burned tires in the street. They also threw firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at the troops.

One of the Israeli soldiers wounded in Monday’s attack by Turkman’s brother sustained a gunshot wound to the hip and was listed in serious condition, but he has since been upgraded to fair condition at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

The two other soldiers sustained shrapnel wounds and are listed in good condition, medical personnel said.

IDF Extensive Overnight Raids Capture Jenin Weapons Workshops

Monday, September 26th, 2016

IDF forces in collaboration with Border Guard and Shabak units raided weapons workshops overnight in the town of Jenin in Samaria. The operation shut down two workshops and captured four guns, magazines, ammunition and weapons parts.

In addition, overnight IDF and Judea and Samaria police closed down a weapons workshop in ad-Dhahiriya, near Hebron.

A third overnight raid by IDF and police forces yielded “Carlo” homemade submachine guns.

Back in June, Newsweek reported that Arab social media users have been referring crowding the #CarloSalvo, “a morbid tip of the hat to a homemade sub-machine gun version of the Swedish military’s World War II Carl Gustav rifle, nicknamed the ‘Carlo.'” Virtually every post is accompanied by praises to the gun as a weapon worthy of a “hero.”

Khaled Abu Toameh: PA Police Break Legs of Arab Children

Sunday, August 7th, 2016

Israeli Arab Award winning journalist, lecturer and documentary filmmaker Khaled Abu Toameh on Saturday tweeted that “Palestinian policemen broke arms and legs of children during protest against power cuts in Yamoun, Jenin.”

Abu Toameh is a staunch defender of freedom of speech and has criticized the Palestinian Authority for arresting and harassing Palestinian journalists in the West Bank.

In the Durban Review Conference, Abu Toameh criticized Israeli Arab Knesset members for supporting extremism and calling Israel a “state of apartheid” rather than fighting for the rights of Arab citizens of Israel.

Abu Toameh says he is routinely subject to condemnations, and is often threatened. He notes, however, that more threats are coming from outside the Middle East than from within the Palestinian Authority, and that those who threaten him “roundly acknowledge” that he is telling the truth and don’t question his reporting, but merely want him to “shut up.”
