First Official Turkish Delegation to Israel in 5 Years

Monday, August 31st, 2015

For the first time in five years, Turkey and Israel are talking officially again, with an official delegation from Turkey arriving today (Mon. Aug. 31) to discuss development in Jenin.

The Turkish delegation, led by Guven Sak, a co-director of the Turkish Manufacturers and Traders Association, are set to meet Monday in Israel with Israeli Deputy Minister of Regional Cooperation Ayoub Karal

The Turkish business leaders are allegedly planning to discuss development of an industrial zone in the Jenin are, a project worth a Turkish investment of at least $100 million.

Monday’s visit is the first since the 2010 incident on the Mavi Marmara flotilla vessel that illegally attempted to breach Israel’s maritime security blockade of Gaza. The vessel, sponsored by a Turkish activist group, was filled with violent, armed activists who attacked Israeli commandos who boarded the vessel to redirect it to Ashdod port, after the captain refused to change course away from Gaza.

Although the group sponsoring the ship claimed it was filled with “humanitarian supplies”for Gaza residents, upon inspection in Ashdod it was discovered there were no supplies for Gazans. But during the clashes on board the vessel between the attacking activists on board, and the Israeli commandos who boarded to redirect the ship, nine Turkish attackers were killed. A number of Israelis were seriously wounded, including one critically, as well.

The incident sparked years of acrimonious rhetoric from then-Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, now the country’s president, who expelled the Israeli ambassador and recalled his own from Tel Aviv. Erdogan is a strong supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, which gave birth to Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization. He was outraged when Israel has launched counter terror operations to silence the incessant rocket and mortar fire being aimed at its civilians in southern areas.

Nevertheless, over the past several years various figures behind the scenes have been working quietly to repair the damage to the relationship between the two former allies, which has continued to grow economically in commercial trade.

A number of religious leaders on both sides have also maintained ties and continued to meet for interfaith dialogue facilitated by Istanbul-based Islamic scholar Adnan Oktar.

The delegation is arriving one day after Turkey’s “ambassador to the Palestinian Authority,” Mustafa Sernich, traveled to Gaza, Al Resalah reported Sunday.

Semich was accompanied by a delegation of economists who paid their own way, and who are scheduled for meetings with heads of Gaza economic institutions.

The Turkish official was scheduled to meet with “deputy chairman of the Hamas political bureau, Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh.”

Until recently Haniyeh was recognized as the de facto prime minister of Gaza. The use of this new title by Palestinian Arab media suggests Haniyeh was demoted in a quiet internal political battle out of the public eye.

IDF Kills Rock-Throwing Terrorist Near Jenin

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

IDF soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian Authority Arab overnight Tuesday during a riot in the village of Burkin, near Jenin.

The 21-year-old rioter, Muhammad Ahmad Alawneh was picking up a rock to attack the soldiers when he was shot.

Alawneh was taken to the hospital in Jenin with a chest wound and later died of his injuries, Ynet reported.

Security sources said the riot broke out as IDF forces were arresting a wanted PA Arab fugitive in Burkin.

The soldiers arrested 22-year-old Muhammad Ali Atiq in Burkin. They also detained 22-year-old Yasser Ghaleb Abu Ja’afar in a separate operation in Jenin.

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.

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.
