Israeli Security Forces Capture Hamas Terrorists in Judea

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

IDF and Border Guard Police captured eight wanted terror suspects late Saturday and early Sunday in Samaria and Judea.

One of the suspects was arrested in a Samaria operation in Jenin, and a second was arrested in Jelazoun, both wanted for violence against civilians and security personnel.

In Judea, two brothers, both wanted suspects were captured in Beit Fajar, north of Kiryat Arba. Two more suspects were arrested in the city Hebron, next to Kiryat Arba, in connection with activities as operatives in the Hamas terror organization.

In the Palestinian Authority village of Samua, in the South Hebron Hills, two more suspects were also captured, including one who is also accused of being a Hamas operative.

All of the suspects were transferred to the Israel Security Agency Shin Bet security personnel for interrogation.

Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist group has increasingly built up a presence in Judea and Samaria in hopes of eventually seizing control of these regions as well.

The IDF and Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency has tracked down and dismantled numerous budding Hamas regional headquarters set-ups and at least two established semi-official shadow government networks in Qalkilya and in Shechem, both in Samaria.

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

Security forces arrested three young Arab suspects shortly after midnight in connection with the stabbing of an Israeli jogger near Neve Daniel late Tuesday afternoon.

Ditor, a student who lives in the Gush Etzion community of Rosh Tzurim, was able to make it to the gated entrance of Neve Daniel to report the attack, despite his wounds. He was rushed to the Trauma Unit at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where he was listed in fair condition.

The suspects were taken into custody at the Palestinian Authority village of Kfar Nachlin, which is located close to Neve Daniel.

All three were turned over to Shin Bet Israel Security Agency personnel for interrogation, according to local sources.

Update: Terror Attack Foiled at Karmei Tzur in Judea

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

A female Arab terrorist wannabe, age 16 but dressed as a much younger schoolgirl, attempted to infiltrate the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur in Judea on Tuesday morning.

The attempt was noticed by a resident of the community, who saw the young Arab female approaching the gate of the community, and noticed that she looked suspicious.

The resident – a woman – alerted the guard to the situation, who then called out to the young terrorist to drop her weapon – a steak knife.

The latest "jihad" weapon -- an Arab school girl's bag to hide the knife within.

The latest “jihad” weapon — an Arab school girl’s bag to hide the knife within.

The wannabe terrorist immediately complied and dropped the knife.

Last Friday Arabs from a nearby village in the Palestinian Authority attacked the synagogue at the adjacent outpost of Givat Soreq. The site overlooks the area where searchers found the bodies of three Israeli teens murdered by Hamas terrorists in summer 2014.

The neighboring villagers piled up the Torah scrolls and holy books from the prayer tent and then set them afire.

Residents of Karmei Tzur noted that it was not the first time Arabs in the area had carried out such attacks on their community. But to attack a synagogue and burn its sacred texts to ashes is an especially ugly form of anti-Semitism reminiscent of some of the “darkest events in our history,” they said.

Netanyahu: ‘I Expect World to Condemn Desecration of a Synagogue’

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed Saturday night that Israel will hunt down and prosecute the arsonists who set fire a few hours earlier to Torah scrolls and holy books in a Judean synagogue next to the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur.

“Last night a synagogue in Givat Sorek, in Gush Etzion, was set on fire by Palestinians,” Netanyahu said in a post on his Facebook page, written in Hebrew and in English. “We will prosecute the perpetrators of this crime.

“I expect the international community to condemn the desecration of a synagogue, an act that is the result of incessant Palestinian incitement,” the prime minister stated.

The small prayer tent is located in a scenic spot overlooking the area where the bodies of three Israeli teens were found, who were murdered by Hamas terrorists after being abducted near their yeshiva in June 2014.

The flames badly damaged the sacred texts. They had been piled up outside the prayer tent before the arsonists set them afire.

Judea and Samaria district police said the footprints of the suspects were found leading to a Palestinian Authority village near the town of Halhul, according to Ynet.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett, chairman of the Bayit Yehudi party, said in a statement that “a red line has been crossed… we will not allow this to go unpunished.”
