PA Arab Indicted for Shooting at Israeli Forces and Arms Dealing

Monday, May 9th, 2016

By Michael Bachner/TPS

Jerusalem (TPS) – Husam Ashhab, a 19-year-old Palestinian Authority resident of Qalandiya, has been indicted at the Jerusalem District Court for buying and selling weapons and arms, some of which were used to commit terror attacks.

According to the indictment, Ashhab sold a Carl Gustav rifle in March, 2016 to Abed Harub, who used it the following day to carry out a shooting attack in Jerusalem. Harub, together with another terrorist, first shot at people at a bus stop at the Ramot Junction and then drove towards the Old City where they shot at passing cars before being shot and killed by police. One Israeli was critically wounded during the attack.

Ashhab also committed several shooting attacks by himself, the indictment added. He shot at Israeli security forces who came to demolish a terrorist’s home in Qalandiya in November, 2015. He took a rifle he had hidden in a neighborhood near his home and fired five shots at military vehicles. He also shot at an IDF pillbox in Qalandiya one week later.

The Jerusalem prosecutor is requesting to have Ashhab detained until the end of court proceedings against him.

Security Guards Who Killed Brother and Sister Terrorists in Qalandiya to Be Interrogated with a Warning

Thursday, May 5th, 2016

Police is going to interrogate with a warning the security guards who shot dead an Arab brother and sister duo at the Qalandiya check post outside Jerusalem on April 27, Israeli media reported Thursday. The investigation has been assigned to the central police unit in Judea and Samaria. The courts have imposed a gag order on the story.

The two Arabs, a pregnant woman, 23, and her brother, 16, were on their way to Jerusalem to receive medical treatment for the sister, having obtain the necessary permit from the Israeli authorities. According to police reports at the time, the sister approached the cops and the security guards at the check point with a knife drawn in her hand, tossed the knife at them and was shot dead. Next her brother was shot and killed as well, and police said he, too, was carrying a knife and a penknife.

But the dead terrorists’ family members, as well as Arab eyewitnesses, are insisting the two were not in possession of knives, and were shot simply because they failed to use the pedestrian walkway and moved down the vehicle lane instead, raising the security force’s suspicion. The family is demanding the release of the check post’s CCTV tapes to prove they are right.

A preliminary examination of the case initially found that police personnel had acted properly and in accordance with the police rules of engagement, and it was the security guards, who are under police personnel supervision, who opened fire at the two terrorists. According to the Arab version, the sister was riddled with ten bullets and her brother was shot when he had rushed to her side.

According to the police version, the security guards indeed were the shooters, but used only three bullets, and only after warning shots in the air.

A Blockade on Ramallah [photos]

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

For reasons unknown, armed and masked Arab terrorists blocked the exit from Ramallah/Kalandia to Jerusalem today.

Those are some very impressive-looking weapons the terrorists are holding, and so close to Jerusalem too.

Ramallah is under control of the Palestinian Authority… or maybe not.

Arabs Riot after IDF Kills Terrorist Throwing Bomb at Soldiers

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Palestinian Authority Arab riots are attacking Israeli police and soldiers at the Kalandia, between Ramallah and Jerusalem, Tuesday morning in protest of the death of an Arab rioter in the same areas last night when the IDF tried to arrest a suspected weapons dealer.

Soldiers entered Kalandia at night to arrest the man and were met with dozens of rioters. When one of them threw an explosive device at the soldiers, they fired back and killed the attacker.

The Arab version is that the man was shot in cold blood and simply was sitting on the roof of his house watching the action.

The Palestinian Authority has damaged itself over the years with a severe credibility gap that firing media no longer can ignore since Hamas was caught red-handed time after time lying to them during the war in Gaza last summer.

The Palestinian Authority made matters worse for itself the past few weeks by claiming that two men were murdered even though autopsy reports, issued by Arab and Jewish doctors, proved otherwise.

The first case was a Jerusalem Arab bus driver who hanged himself. The PA version is that “settlers” murdered him.

The second case was last week when an autopsy showed that a Palestinian Authority minister, suffering from heart disease and high blood pressure, died from a heart attack brought on by stress during a clash with Israeli soldiers. Tear gas that was fired to disperse the rioters contributed to the stress.

Now comes the claim that soldiers, confronting dozens of Arabs going wild and throwing everything but the kitchen at them, decided to turn their attention to a supposed peaceful Arab who was bored and went on the roof to watch the riot.
