IDF Soldiers Arrest 25 Wanted Terror Suspects in Judea, Samaria

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

IDF soldiers arrested at least 25 Arab suspects over the past 24 hours in a major crackdown aimed at reducing the terror attacks on Israeli drivers in Judea and Samaria.

The forces captured 11 wanted terror suspects overnight in the Arab village of Tuqu’a, near the Jewish community of the same name, Tekoa, in eastern Gush Etzion. The suspects are accused of stoning Israeli drivers on the roads of Judea. They are also suspected of attacking drivers with firebombs and pipe bombs as well.

At least 14 other terror suspects were arrested in late-night operations throughout Judea and Samaria, according to a statement by the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit.

One of the suspects was from the Arab village of Qatane. A search of his home revealed a huge cache of stolen items that included jewelry, guns, electronics and military uniforms.

IDF soldiers from the Etzion Brigade also arrested a group of Arab teens caught stoning cars traveling near the Arab village of El Khader, a bit south of Bethlehem. The teens were caught after being spotted on security cameras, hurling rocks at the passing cars.

Firebombing Attacks Continue: Terrorists Target Jewish Homes in Jerusalem

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

Firebombing, which can quickly ignite if the Molotov cocktail explodes upon impact, sometimes becomes lethal within seconds and is continuing to be one of the preferred methods of attack by Arab terrorists around the Israeli capital of Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria.

On Sunday evening, two masked Arab terrorists attempted to murder Jewish residents in their homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Nahalat Shimon.

The attackers firebombed a building that houses two apartments in which Jewish families are living, clearly intending the Molotov cocktails to ignite upon impact and burn the homes and those within.

Miraculously, no physical injuries were reported in the attack, although the homes were damaged and as desire, headlines were indeed created.

Children’s Weapons-Making’ Cell Arrested in Gush Etzion

Wednesday, December 14th, 2016

Israeli security forces have announced the arrest of a children’s weapons-making cell in Gush Etzion. For real.

The “children” are suspected of hurling firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at Israeli vehicles as they travel through the area, and manufacturing various improvised weapons.

Two underage suspects were arrested Monday during a joint raid carried out by Israel Police and forces from the Etzion Regional Brigade in the Arab village of Beit Fajar, located in the Gush Etzion region of Judea.

Both are suspected of firebombing the Jewish community of Migdal Oz and the Oz veGaon Nature Park.

During questioning the two culprits also confessed to belonging to a cell that produces other improvised weapons.

On Wednesday evening, police arrested two additional suspects, and discovered improvised weapons parts, springs, various purchased items and bullets to create makeshift weapons.

The investigation into the four young suspects is continuing, even as it is being added to the dozens of cases of new and varied types of illegal weapons being created in Arab villages in Judea and Samaria.

“Israeli Police will continue its determined, uncompromising struggle to reduce the number of illegally held weapons,” said the spokesperson for the Southern Jerusalem District Police. “We will work tirelessly in cooperation with all relevant forces and agencies to do so.”

Watch IDF Capture Arab Firebombers in the Act in Gush Etzion [video]

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

(Dec. 6, 2016) On Monday night, an IDF unit, laying in ambush in Gush Etzion, captured part of a terror cell with a lit firebomb in their hands as they headed to their intended target.

An IDF lookout spotted the three terrorists approaching the security wall near Road 60, next to El Hadr in Gush Etzion.

The ambush unit was already in place in the area, as the IDF was looking for the terrorists who have been setting fires.

As the terror cell approached, the IDF soldiers leaped into action (some a little faster than the others). One of the pytoterrorists was captured. The others appear to have gotten away – for now.

The entire event was caught by IDF security cameras at the command center, who were directing the IDF soldiers to their terror target.

Arab #PyroTerrorists Caught Trying to Start Fire Near Ariel [video]

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Security cameras caught three Arabs trying to start a fire near the city of Ariel using what appeared to be a Molotov cocktail. The three were dropped off by a car, and they then began trying to start the fire.

After starting the fire, they casually continued walking to the Arab village nearby.

Residents from Ariel got there in time to put it out using bottles of water.

The city got lucky because the Arabs didn’t pick a very flammable area and the surrounding brush and trees didn’t catch fire, even after burning for 4 minutes.

They also picked the wrong side of the road to light their fire.

The pyro-terrorists were tracked walking back to a nearby Arab village, and were caught and arrested by security personnel.

Terrorist Ambush Thwarted in Hebron

Saturday, November 5th, 2016

Security forces conducted extensive sweeps in Hebron following intelligence information received Friday evening regarding an explosive device that had been placed in an undisclosed location in the city.

Eventually a suspect was located, hiding in a local hotel, and during his interrogation he revealed the location of the explosive device – a gas tank connected to explosives and a mobile phone.

In his interrogation, the terrorist, reportedly a Jordanian national who arrived in Israel as a tourist, confessed that he had planned to throw a Molotov cocktail in order to attract the attention of security forces, and once they arrived at the place of ambush to turn on the explosive charge via the phone.

Following the 1995 Oslo Agreement and subsequent 1997 Hebron Agreement, Arab cities in Judea and Samaria were placed under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority, with the exception of Hebron, which was split into two sectors: H1 is controlled by the Palestinian Authority and H2 controlled by Israel.
