Burning Terrorist Ambush Neutralized on Highway 443

Monday, July 13th, 2015

A pile of blazing tires on the old Jerusalem highway (Highway 443) stopped commuters in their tracks early Monday morning.

The ambush, located just 500 meters (about 1/3 mile) from the Maccabim checkpoint, blocked the approach from Modi’in to Jerusalem close to the line that separates pre-1967 from Area A of the Palestinian Authority territory.

It was the two firefighting crews sent to the scene to extinguish the flames who discovered the blaze was actually a cover for something a little more ominous.

Terrorists had hidden a gas cylinder among the burning tires blocking the Jerusalem-bound side of the road.

The bomb squad was called to the scene and sappers were able to neutralize the threat in short order.

Police reported no injuries and no property damage as a result of the incident. An investigation has been launched.

Bennett and Herzog Teach High School on Unity

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) chairman Naftali Bennett and Opposition leader Yitzchak Herzog spoke together on Sunday at a high-school class in which they spoke on unity.

The special class at the Yachad (Together) high school in Modi’in was held in memory of the three youth — Naftali Fraenkel, Gilad Shaer and Eyal Yifrah – who were kidnapped and murdered last year by Hamas terrorists.

Bennett said:

The danger in Israel is not between the left and the right and not between coalition and opposition. The differences in Israel are between those who are tolerant and those who are not, between those who are dedicated to unity of the people and those who are dedicated to dividing us.

When Herzog took his turn to speak to the students, he said how much he respects Bennett but, according to Nana news, couldn’t resist an opportunity to play the “sore loser”and said:

We have to argue with each other but also have to observe basic principles…. Bennett and his party crossed the red line and harmed unity when he compared the Zionist Union with the enemies of Israel in the election campaign.

Heavy Snow on Golan to Spread to the Negev Desert

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

A massive system of frigid air will whip most of Israel late Thursday night and Friday morning and bring snow to areas that have not seen the white stuff for 20 years or more.

Arad, Dimona, Upper Haifa, Modi’in, Karnei-Ginot Shomron, Maaleh Gilboa, Nazareth, Kfar Saba and possibly Ben Gurion Airport will probably be covered in white Friday morning.

Snow is falling on the Hermon ski slopes and the northern Golan Heights at this time (early Thursday afternoon), and rain in other areas will turn to snow when temperatures plummet tonight. The airport in Haifa has been closed, and police probably will not allow cars to travel on the Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway.

Last December, heavy snow trapped motorists.

Snow will fall through the night, but by Friday afternoon it will turn back to rain in lower areas. Snow will continue falling on communities where the altitude is above 2,000 feet, and later in the day above 3,000 feet, which includes Hebron, Nevei Daniel in Gush Etzion, and Tzfat (Safed).

More than a foot of snow is likely to be dumped on Jerusalem, Gush Etzion, Hebron and the southern Hebron Hills.

Smaller accumulations will fall on Arad and Dimona in the northern Negev, and possibly on Be’er Sheva and Kiryat Gat.

There is a chance that Tel Aviv residents will see snow mixed with rain.

Anyone who does not want to lift a snow shovel, and who is not in a hurry, can wait around for a couple of days. The forecast for Sunday is freezing temperatures in the morning but significant warming in the afternoon.

On Monday and Tuesday, it will be warmer than usual. There is a chance for more rain – but no snow – later next week.

Meanwhile, the Kinneret continues to add an inch or so a day, and the entire country has received the amount of precipitation that usually falls for the entire year.
