PA Terrorist Explodes While Attacking IDF in Jenin

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

A terrorist from the Palestinian Authority was killed by his own bomb while attacking Israeli soldiers in Samaria (Shomron) on Tuesday night.

The attacker was holding an IED (improvised explosive device) and preparing to hurl it at the IDF soldiers as they patrolled near Jenin.

Spotting the attacker, the special operations unit shot and lightly wounded him, causing him to drop the bomb, which fell nearby.

IDF officials confirmed to the Hebrew-language newspaper Yediot Acharonot that the terrorist was killed when his own bomb exploded.

Arab media reported the incident quite differently, claiming that clashes broke out in Jenin and that the terrorist, Izz a-Din Bin Aza, was shot dead by a bullet to the chest.

IDF Kills Palestinian Authority Terrorist Who Wanted to ‘Meet Allah’

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Israeli soldiers killed a Palestinian Authority terrorist who was attacking them with an explosive device early Wednesday morning.

Border Police had finished arresting suspected terrorists when they spotted Ezzedine Ghora, 23, preparing to hurl the improvised bomb at them. It was not clear if the terrorist died from IDF fire or from the explosive device, which blew up.

His last Facebook message was:

One loves (willing) to meet Allah, Allah loves meeting him.

Jenin is in “Area A,” where the Palestinian Authority is supposed to be responsible for tearing down the terrorist infrastructure.

Foreign media, such as Reuters reported Wednesday morning’s incident with the usual claim, this time by “hospital officials,” that there had been no confrontation, just like Gaza Arabs trying to attack the IDF at the security fence actually were playing soccer.

Arab Teen Attacker Shot, 2 Israelis Hurt in Attacks

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

A 16-year-old Palestinian Authority Arab was shot Monday night by IDF soldiers as he and several others attempted to kill Israeli travelers on the roads.

The young terrorist was taken to a hospital in the PA-controlled city of Jenin with a gunshot wound to the lower body.

His condition is unknown.

Earlier in the day, Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists firebombed an Israeli vehicle as it passed near the Samaria city of Shechem (Nablus).

One person in the car was hurt in the attack. The vehicle was set afire and was heavily damaged by the flames.

The Huwara and Za’atara checkpoints south of Shechem were shut down after the incident, locking down access to pre-1967 Israel from the Palestinian Authority and enabling IDF soldiers to search for suspects who are still at large.

In a second attack involving similar weapons, a Border Guard officer was injured Monday night in Jerusalem’s Wadi Joz neighborhood.

Rioting Arab residents hurled large rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) as they clashed with security forces in the neighborhood.

The injured police officer was treated at the scene by Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics. One rioter was arrested, according to Israel Police.

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014

Border Police officers stopped a potential terror attack on Wednesday afternoon.

A Border Police lookout at the Salem checkpoint near Jenin reported hearing some sort of popping sound. They sent another Border Police patrol to check it out.

The patrol approached the area and spotted 4 suspicious Arabs and discovered they all had pipe bombs on them.

The four, all residents of Shechem (Nablus) told the officers they planned to attack Israeli security personnel.

The pipe bombs were neutralized. The terrorists were handed over to the Shabak for interrogation.

Tel Aviv Suicide Bomb Plot Foiled

Monday, December 15th, 2014

Released for Publication:

The Shabak, the IDF and the police foiled a plot by Palestinian Authority Arabs to commit a suicide bombing in Tel Aviv.

Between October and November of this year, security forces arrested a woman and four men, including Yasmin Shaaban of Jenin, and four residents of Atil, a neighborhood in Tul Karem.

Shaaban, a 31 year old woman, was appointed to be the bomber. She was going to dress up like a pregnant Jewish woman to get past security searches.

The plan was to get her an entry permit into Israel for medical reasons, and to use the permit to smuggle both herself and the bomb in.

The Shabak found rifles, bullets and explosives in the terror cell’s possession.

The terror cell planned to use a Tel Aviv apartment, currently used by illegal Arab workers, as their staging area.

The group communicated with terrorists from Gaza for help in making the bomb belt.

The cell had also planned other terror attacks.

The following are the names of the arrested:

Mandel Mufak Tufik Takez. From Atil.

UPDATE: No Suicide Bomber Near Jenin

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Update: What was first thought to be a suicide bomb with a bomb belt has turned out to be an allegedly mentally ill person carrying bags of black sunflower seeds on his person.

The man was stopped late Sunday morning, after the IDF initially thought the man was a suicide bomber.

After the bomb squad examined the contents of what he was carrying, and interrogated the suspect, they determined that he was not a suicide bomber.

He’s been freed to go on his way.

Traffic at the checkpoint has been reopened.

Until the IDF cleaned it out, Jenin was a hotbed of suicide bombers.

Israeli Security Cabinet: ‘Operation Brother’s Keeper’ Continues ‘Full Throttle’

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Israel’s Security Cabinet decided Wednesday night to continue Operation Brother’s Keeper at “full throttle” until three kidnapped Israeli teens are found and returned home.

The holy Islamic month of Ramadan begins this coming Saturday; during this period, observant Muslims traditionally fast during the daylight hours, abstaining from food and drink each day until after sundown. It is also time in which tensions usually rise between Arabs and Jews and often there is a corresponding increase in the number of terrorist and other attacks.

Earlier this week there was some discussion over whether Israel had reached the lion’s share of its secondary goals in the operation, in neutralizing the presence of the Hamas terrorist organization in Judea and Samaria. More than 360 arrests have been made thus far, with at least 250 of those taken into custody claiming membership in Hamas.

But with the primary goal of finding the kidnap victims still ‘up front and center,’ the security cabinet decided to move forward with the operation, albeit with due consideration for the local PA Arab population, given the holiday circumstances.

IDF soldiers are still searching daily and overnight throughout the hills of Judea and Samaria Eyal Yifrach, 19, Naftali Frenkel, 16 and Gilad Sha’ar, 16. The three boys were abducted from Gush Etzion by Arab terrorists on June 12 as they were hitchhiking home for the Sabbath from yeshiva.

In numerous homes and buildings, they have come across illegal weapons caches, hidden tunnels, previously undiscovered secret chambers, caves and cisterns whose presence was cleverly concealed by brush, rocks and in some cases even what appeared to be “ancient” agricultural terraces.

Overnight Wednesday IDF troops arrested a total of 10 Palestinian Authority fugitives during operations, including a terrorist who was tracked down near the southern Hevron Hills village of Samu’a but who fled to evade arrest. When warning shots did not stop him, IDF troops shot him instead, seriously wounding the fugitive. He was taken to an Israeli medical center for treatment, and will later be questioned by security personnel. A terrorist wounded while rioting against IDF soldiers during arrest operations several days ago in Ramallah also died last night.
