Alert Israelis Foil Terror Stabbing Attack in Afula

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Israeli citizens stopped what might have been a real tragedy in Afula Tuesday evening when they spotted three suspicious-looking young Arab men on Arlozorov Street.

Israel Police officers launched a search for the suspects and within minutes had stopped and searched the trio when they spotted one throwing away an object, which turned out to be a large butcher knife.

The other two men likewise were carrying matching butcher knives, sharpened in clear readiness for an attack.

All three men lacked entry and identification documents and were residents of the Palestinian Authority city of Jenin.

They were immediately arrested and taken to the local police station for questioning.

IDF Captures Wanted Hamas Fugitive After Firefight in Jenin

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

After a complex military operation overnight that included a firefight lasting into Sunday morning in the Palestinian Arab city of Jenin, IDF soldiers captured a wanted Hamas terror fugitive and his brother.

The operation was carried out in cooperation with Israel’s Security Agency, the Shin Bet.

The IDF military forces were not deterred by the entrenched Hamas operative who had refused Saturday night to comply with a demand to surrender to arresting officers.

The fugitive, Kais a-Sa’adi, had barricaded himself in his home during arrest operations carried out by the IDF’s elite Duvdevan Unit.

Soldiers surrounded the house and fired a missile at the building.

Arab media reported that troops subsequently left the city without arresting the fugitive, but did arrest his brother. However, Israel’s Channel 10 television news reported that two suspects were taken into custody.

An M-16 assault rifle was also discovered, along with several homemade bombs (improvised explosive devices, or IEDs) at the home.

BREAKING: IDF Soldier Wounded in Shootout with Terrorists During Jenin Arrest Operation

Monday, August 31st, 2015

One IDF soldier has been moderately wounded in an joint arrest operation with the Shin Bet General Security Service carried out late Monday night in the Palestinian Arab city of Jenin, in Samaria.

Israeli security forces were attacked by Palestinian Arab terrorists who opened fire as the soldiers began their operation in the city. The wounded IDF soldier was rushed to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa.

At least five members of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror organization were killed in the firefight, Arab media reported. This has not been confirmed by Israeli sources.

It is believed that one of the targets may have been a regional commander of Islamic Jihad in Samaria (Shomron), but that has not been confirmed.

One shootout reportedly took place at the home of senior PIJ leader Bassem Sa’adi, possibly the target of the arrest operation. Sa’adi is a convicted felon who was released from an Israeli prison in 2011.

IDF forces also surrounded the home of the Abu al-Hija family, suspected of linkages to the Judea and Samaria branch of the military wing of Hamas. Reportedly one arrest was made there at the Abu al-Hija home, according to local sources quoted by the Hebrew-language Ynet site.

There has been no comment from the IDF Spokesperson thus far.

More information to follow.
