Update: Kiryat Arba Victim Identified in Stone-Throwing Terror Attack

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Kiryat Arba resident Avraham Asher Hasano, 50, was murdered Tuesday in a stone-throwing terror attack by Arabs as he drove south of Hebron.

Hasano was attacked while driving past the al-Fawar junction. He was forced to stop his vehicle due to the damage wreaked by Palestinian Arabs who pelted the car with rocks as it passed.

When Hasano got out of the car he was struck by a truck driven by a Palestinian Arab, who then fled to the Palestinian Authority-controlled village of Dahariya, near Hebron.

The victim lay on the road helpless “for quite some time,” according to a spokesperson for the Hebron Hills Jewish community, who said passing Arab residents did nothing to help him but did snap photos of the dying man, which they uploaded to the Internet.

An IDF paramedic who arrived at the scene attempted to treat Hasano with first aid, but it was too late. Medics were forced to pronounce the death of the victim at the scene after all attempts to save him failed, Magen David Adom confirmed.

The hit-and-run driver subsequently turned himself in to Palestinian Authority police, according to Israel Radio. He has been transferred to Israel Police for questioning.

The man said he hit the victim accidentally but fled because he feared for his life in the current atmosphere.

He claimed that because his own vehicle had also been hit by rocks just moments earlier, he didn’t realize the victim had stopped and gotten out of his vehicle.

IDF forces are still searching for the attackers.

Passing Arabs Took Photos of Wounded Jew Lying in Road

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

A spokesperson for the Hebron Hills Jewish community said Tuesday that passing Arabs snapped photos but did not help the 50-year-old Jewish man who lay dying after a terror attack near Kiryat Arba.

“The incident began with rocks … and the victim’s vehicle was damaged by rocks,” said the spokesperson. “The victim left his car because of this. A truck ran him over and fled to Dahariyya (a village near Hebron). It is not clear whether it was intentional, this ‘accident.’

“The victim lay there for quite a while and received no assistance from anyone, naturally, while passing Arabs photographed him lying there on the road.

“The person from whom he received first aid was an IDF paramedic.

“The victim is a resident of Kiryat Arba,” the spokesperson added. “At this stage, please do not publish his name or photo (if you see it in Arab or foreign media.) This is what we know of the incident at this point. May we hear only good news.”

Stones Are Flying Both Ways This Time Around

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

Stone-throwing can be deadly and with the decision of Sunday morning’s government cabinet meeting, will carry a heavy penalty for the perpetrator both in prison and in fines.

Until the present wave of terror, those who engaged in such attacks were nearly always Palestinian Arabs intent on the murder of Israeli Jews.

But not anymore.

On Saturday night several Jews were arrested in Kiryat Arba after they were caught throwing stones at Palestinian Arabs.

No injuries were reported.

On Sunday afternoon, Jerusalem district police received a call from an Arab man who works at a Jaffa Street store in the downtown area. The man reported that he was being attacked with pepper spray by a group of young Jewish women, and described the attackers.

Officers who arrived on the scene detained three suspects for questioning following a search of the area.

“The police call upon the public to act responsibly,” Jerusalem District Police said in a statement released subsequently. “The police will act with zero tolerance toward any violent incident or any attempt to harm public safety.”

Arab Riots Spread to Northern Israel

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Arab riots in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria have spread to the Galilee in northern Israel and to the Arab city of Taibeh near Netanyahu. In Nazareth, home city of anti-Zionist Knesset Member Haneen Zoabi, Arab crowds shouted anti-Israeli slogans in a protest against Israeli security forces’ response to terror.

Rioters in Taibeh, near Netanya, burned tires on a major highway and forced part of it to be closed,

Arab violence also spread to the highway linking Pisgat Ze’ev, in northern Jerusalem, with the French Hill intersection. Magen David Adom reported that medics treated a 35-year-old man for wounds caused by glass splinters in his back after rock-throwers smashed a window in his vehicle.

He was evacuated to Shaarei Tzedek Hospital for treatment, along with three others who suffered shock.

Palestinian Authority media reported that two people were killed in clashes with Israeli soldiers, including a young teenager in the area of Bethlehem in an incident that the IDF has not confirmed.

The Arab Red Crescent medical organization claimed that nearly 500 people were wound by soldiers, and Radio Palestine reported that 36 Arabs were hit with live fire and 136 by rubber bullets.

They also said that the IDF has closed a village east of Hebron because of wide-scale rioting.

Rock-throwing was reported on Highway 60, south of Kiryat Arba-Hebron, where dozens of buses are taking people Monday night for the “traditional “Hakafot” that are staged throughout the country, primarily for secular Jews who want to dance with the Torah but do not attend synagogue on the day of the holiday that ended this evening.

On Sunday, before the Shemini Azeret-Simchat Torah holiday began, combat soldiers from the Shimshon unit caught two terrorists who were hurling rocks at drivers near the Gush Etzion-Jerusalem tunnels.

In Samaria, terrorists threw an explosive device at a Jewish motorist, but no injuries were reported.

Egoz and Rotem combat soldiers operating near Shechem uncovered a cache of weapons, including two guns or rifles, 10 cartridges, five knives and assorted ammunition,

In Jerusalem, the Light Rail was closed between Pisgat Ze’ev and Shuafat because of rock-throwing, which damaged a train.

Only five soldiers have been wounded, all of them lightly, in the past three days of rioting.
