Pre-Sabbath Stoning Attacks in Judea, Samaria

Saturday, October 29th, 2016

Arab terrorists hurled stones at Israeli motorists Friday just before Shabbat, traveling on Highway 60 in Judea on the segment known as the Gush Etzion-Jerusalem Highway, between El Khader and the northern entrance to the Jewish community of Efrat.

Efrat is located about six minutes south of Jerusalem.

No one was physically wounded in the attack.

Arab terrorists also hurled rocks at Israelis near Sha’ar Ohad the Jewish community of Beit El. There were no reports of physical injuries, and IDF soldiers were deployed to the area.

Fury Over Israeli Authorization for PA Arab Housing in Area C, Near Jewish Susiya

Friday, October 28th, 2016

A proposal by the Civil Administration has been approved by the security cabinet for construction of housing for PA Arabs in Area C, near the Jewish community of Susiya.

In a statement on Thursday, (Oct. 27), Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel of the Bayit Yehudi party slammed the approval of the plan, which came in a secret vote in mid-September, according to a report by Ha’aretz.

The proposal, initiated by Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, comes as part of a plan to strengthen the presence of the moderate Arab population.

“The program’s goal is to do good by those prepared to live in co-existence with us, and on the other hand make things harder for those planning terror attacks,” Liberman said, according to Ha’aretz.

Ariel demanded a review of the plans by the full government at its weekly cabinet meeting this coming Sunday.

“I demand this be debated by the cabinet. Such a decision should be taken by the entire cabinet, not a secret cabinet that tries to hide it from other cabinet members,” he added.

“I hope it will be raised at the next meeting this Sunday and of course we will seek to thwart the idea raised by the security cabinet.”

In particular, objections to Arab construction in Area C are rising in light of the insistence by the High Court of Justice that the Jewish community of Amona must be demolished by the end of this year, despite the fact that the “private land” on which the community was built seems to be abandoned.

To this day, not one resident of the Palestinian Authority has come forward to claim ownership of the land on which the community is built.

Junior Terrorists-in-Training Caught With Knives in Gush Etzion [video]

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Two young armed terrorists-in-training were caught in Gush Etzion by IDF soldiers Wednesday night after an extended search near Kibbutz Migdal Oz in Judea, south of Jerusalem.

The two culprits, both from the nearby Arab village of Beit Fajr and younger than 10 years old, were carrying knives. They were spotted near the kibbutz security fence as two suspicious-looking figures who appeared to be hiding.

During the initial questioning, the children admitted to having been sent, armed with knives, in order to carry out a terror attack.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, IDF Spokesperson, said, “When two eight yearold children are sent on a mission to attack Israeli civilians it is clear that the hateful rhetoric that echoes within Palestinian society abuses the most vulnerable of minds.”

Palestinian Authority terrorist groups such as the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas terror organizations as well as the Fatah-linked Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades all run annual summer camps to train children from ages as young as possible in various ways to murder Israelis and Jews.

Arabs living in the Palestinian Authority are brainwashed from the cradle to the grave with the understanding that they will be heavily rewarded spiritually as well as financially for dedicating their lives to the destruction of the State of Israel and the physical annihilation of their Jewish neighbors.

13 Arab Fugitives Captured Overnight, Guns & Drugs Seized in Lod

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Israeli Border Police officers captured 13 Arab fugitives late Tuesday and into the wee hours of Wednesday morning in various Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of Judea and Samaria.

Ten of the suspects were arrested in connection with terrorist activities, including violent attacks on Israeli civilians and security personnel.

All of the suspects were transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

Israel Police, meanwhile, recovered an automatic submachine gun during a sting operation Wednesday in Lod. The forces discovered an improvised Carlo Gustav submachine gun during their search of a property. They also uncovered and confiscated 6,000 Ecstasy tabs.

The seizure came just hours after security personnel had discovered an M-16 assault rifle and two pistols while searching another compound in the same city.

Israeli Police Officer Injured in Stoning Attack, Egged Bus Firebombed

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

An Israeli police officer was hurt on Tuesday in an Arab stoning attack in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Dahiyat al-Barid, on the outskirts of the capital. The Hatzolah emergency response service of Judea and Samaria reported that the police officer was treated for a minor leg wound.

Earlier in the day, an Arab terrorist hurled a firebomb at Egged Bus #140 as it traveled in Samaria between the Arab village of Hizme and the Jewish community of Adam, northwest of Jerusalem.

A passenger on the bus told the Hebrew-language 0404 website, “The firebomb (Molotov cocktail) was hurled … at the bus as it passed the Adam junction, but it didn’t do any damage.” The firebomb did, however, ignite a fire in the shrubbery at the side of the road. Firefighters extinguished the flames at the site.

A few hours later Arab terrorists attacked another bus at the same spot with a “paint bottle” – a bottle filled with thick, colored paint, intended to blind the driver as it shatters on impact, spreading a mess on the vehicle’s windows.

This time the attack failed: the terrorist’s aim was bad, and the bottle landed instead on the road, exploding its colorful contents on the highway instead.

Arab Terror Gangs Attacking Travelers in Judea and Samaria

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

A gang of nearly a dozen Arab terrorists attacked Israeli motorists near the site of an archaeological excavation close to the Okafim Junction late Tuesday afternoon.

Numerous vehicles came under a hail of rocks as the attackers hurled stones at the motorists as they traveled past the Arab gang.

It’s not clear whether anyone was physically injured in the attack, nor is there any information yet on how many vehicles were damaged.

Israeli drivers also came under stoning attacks as they drove near the Yehuda Farm archaeological site near the Judean Arab city of Halhul, along Highway 60 in Gush Etzion. The site is close to the spot where Asher Palmer and his baby son Yonatan were murdered in a stoning attack by Arab terrorists several years ago.

Arab terrorists also attacked drivers traveling along Highway 60 north of Jerusalem in the Samaria region, as they approached the Jewish community of Shiloh, and at another site northeast of the Palestinian Authority capital city of Ramallah, where a female traveler sustained a minor hand injury from shattered glass.

In accordance with standard security procedures, Israel has closed the entry and exit crossings with the Palestinian Authority in advance of the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, which begins Sunday evening at sunset.

Effective midnight Saturday night, Arabs from the Palestinian Authority are blocked from entering pre-1967 Israel for the next 48 hours.

As with every Jewish holiday, there will be exceptions made for humanitarian cases and medical emergencies, pending approval from the IDF Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT).

The crossings and checkpoints are expected to reopen Monday night at midnight after the end of the holiday, pending a ‘situational assessment,’ the IDF said in a statement.
