Arab Terrorist Decides ‘Too Many Israeli Soldiers’ To Carry Out Attack

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

A 20-year-old Arab man on his way to carry out a terrorist attack suddenly had second thoughts about his “mission” Tuesday afternoon after seeing the number of soldiers gathered in the fields along the way.

The sight prompted him to rethink the idea, and upon his arrival the first thing he did upon his arrival at the Taysir roadblock near Jenin was to put his hands up in the air as he reached the observation post (also known in Hebrew slang as a ‘pillbox’), shouting his surrender.

The local IDF commander and his soldiers immediately cuffed him and began a body search, and a search for his belongings.

Under questioning the “would be terrorist” revealed he had traveled to the site from the Palestinian Authority community of Par’a, intending to stab IDF soldiers at the checkpoint. But on the way to the site, he became anxious about the large number of soldiers he saw along the way, and decided that he wouldn’t carry out the attack.

Towards that end, he had tossed his bag, which contained a knife and a gas canister — both of which were to be used in his attack.

The “terrorist” was taken into custody and held, unharmed, for further investigation.

Terror Attack Stopped at Crossing Near Tulkarem

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

An armed Arab terrorist was stopped in his tracks Tuesday afternoon while trying to stab Israeli soldiers at a crossing, Checkpoint 104, near the Palestinian Authority-controlled city of Tulkarem in Samaria.

The terrorist, armed with a knife, attempted to stab an IDF soldier stationed at the checkpoint.

The soldiers repeatedly fired warning shots in the air and ground, and the terrorist kept approaching the soldier. Until when the terrorist was stabbing distance away (and after retreating multiple times) did the soldier actually shoot at the terrorist.

No injuries were reported, according to the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit, except those suffered by the terrorist.

“Responding to the imminent threat, forces fired towards the attacker, resulting in his death,” the IDF reported.

Video of the attack can be seen here.

Female Arab Wannabe Stabber Indicted in Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

A female wannabe terrorist was indicted Tuesday in the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on charges of attempted murder.

The young wannabe killer from the Palestinian Authority is only 17 years old, but last month she tried to stab an Israeli soldier at the Qalandiya checkpoint. The crossing separates Jerusalem from the Samaria and the Binyamin regions.

On December 12th, the young would-be stabber charged the soldier who was guarding the checkpoint, with a knife in her hand. Other officers at the site overpowered her and disarmed her.

After she was arrested and questioned, the attacker confessed she had been planning that attack for a long time.

Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said she even showed officers the drawings she had made while planning how she would stab her victims.
