IDF Soldier Wounded in Beit Omar Attack Near Hebron

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

An Israeli soldier was wounded Thursday in an Arab terror attack near an IDF “pillbox” (military outpost) situated along Highway 60 in the Palestinian Authority Arab village of Beit Omar.

The village is located a few minutes south of the Gush Etzion junction, and about ten minutes’ drive north of Kiryat Arba and Hebron. It’s known as a hot spot for trouble, and a terrorist stronghold in Judea.

An IDF unit came under a hail of stones from Arab terrorists during the attack, with one of the soldiers suffering a slight head wound. The Israeli forces responded with routine mob dispersal methods, identifying and aiming at the terrorist who threw the rock at the soldier.

The soldier was treated at the scene by IDF medics. Arab Red Crescent emergency response medics were allowed to treat and transport the terrorist for further care.

Palestinian Authority sources later reported that the terrorist allegedly died of his wounds.

Gush Etzion Holiday Traffic Slowed Down by Security

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Traffic throughout Israel on the first intermediate (Chol HaMoed) day of the Jewish Festival of Sukkot was complicated Tuesday by constant stoning attacks from Arab terrorists intent on killing Israeli motorists.

The terrorists failed in their mission, but they slowed down the traffic.

In the Gush Etzion section of Judea, Route 374 was narrowed down to a single lane in which traffic was allowed to flow in one direction only, alternately, in order to maintain tight control on the security situation at the Husan bypass around Beitar and the underpass near the El Khader junction.

Traffic was reported heavy in both directions in the late afternoon hours, but no injuries were reported by nightfall.

Reports earlier in the day indicated that at least 40,000 people had flocked to the nation’s public parks and nature reserves to celebrate the holiday, the beautiful weather and the glorious day.

Arab Stoning Attacks Rising on Judea, Samaria, Binyamin Roads

Monday, October 10th, 2016

Stoning attacks are continuing to plague Israeli drivers on the roads of Judea, Samaria and the Binyamin regions, especially bus drivers whose vehicles make especially tempting targets for Arab terrorists.

Israeli Bus # 162 was attacked Monday evening near the Okafim junction. The bus came under a hail of stones as it traveled along Highway 443.

None of the passengers were physically injured but the windshield of the bus was damaged.

The Judea-Samaria Hatzolah emergency response team reported a separate stoning attack aimed at a second Israeli bus that took place five minutes after the above attack was registered, near the same junction.

A similar attack had occurred at the same place just a day earlier.

Arab terrorists hurled rocks at the second bus as it traveled along the Chutzah Yehuda highway, some 300 meters from the Okafim junction.

As in the previous attack, the windshield was damaged but passengers were not physically harmed.
