French Police Wounded in Firebombing at Paris Suburb Housing Project

Saturday, October 8th, 2016

Four French police officers were wounded Saturday in a firebombing (Molotov cocktail) attack in Grande Borne, a working class housing area in a southern Paris suburb, France 24 reported.

At least two of the officers were listed in serious condition, with “major burns,” according to a police source. They were rushed to a medical center in Paris. A van and a police vehicle in which the officers were riding were badly burned in the attack.

Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve described the attack as “extremely serious,” adding that “Everything is being done to find and arrest those behind these intolerable attacks and bring them to justice.”

A source told France 24 the officers “were in a police vehicle monitoring a surveillance camera near a traffic light. About 10 people attacked them with volleys of Molotov cocktails” shortly before 3 pm [local time].”

Local Mayor Jean-Marie Vilain told AFP the next step will be to step up the response to “chronic criminality in the area… to put an end to all the drug dealing, because that is really what the cameras interfere with.”

Built in the 1960s with winding coloured buildings, the housing project — which today has 11,000 residents — was intended to become an ideal dormitory town. Since that time, however, Grande Bourne has become known in France for its poverty, drug dealing, arms trafficking, youth criminality and attacks on police, as well as arson attacks on public buildings.

Grande Bourne was home to Amedy Coulibaly, the radical Islamist terrorist who in January 2015 murdered a police officer, murdered four people and held 15 others hostage at the Hyper Cacher Kosher Grocery in the 20th district of Paris, while demanding that two other terrorists not be harmed.

The two others — Said Kouachi and Cherif Kouachi — were Al Qaeda terrorists he met while in prison in 2005, and with whom he had coordinated his attacks.

Coulibaly himself had pledged his allegiance to Da’esh (ISIS). His wife, Hayat Boumeddiene, is currently wanted by French police on suspicion of having been his accomplice in helping to plan the attacks, and was seen arriving in Turkey five days before he launched the first one. She was last traced to Syria, where she fled while her husband was carrying out his attacks. She has been described by French newspapers as the “Most Wanted Woman in France.”

Road Terror Heats Up: Double Paint-Bottle Attack on Israeli Bus Near Tekoa

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Arab terrorists hurled two paint-filled bottles at an Israeli bus traveling the road near the Jewish community of Tekoah late Monday night, on the eastern side of Gush Etzion in Judea, according to Hatzoloh emergency response service of Judea and Samaria.

Such an attack can be particularly deadly.

When a “paint bottle’ shatters upon impact as it strikes the vehicle, the paint splatters. Not only can the shattering glass injure the passengers and/or the driver — in addition to causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle — but the paint can cover the windshield and also windows, thus blinding the driver’s ability to see the road and other things around.

No information was available on whether any of the passengers were physically injured in the attack.

But it wasn’t the first attack of the day by any means, nor the first attack of the day near Tekoa, either. Earlier in the evening, Arab terrorists attacked Israeli motorists traveling near the junction leading to Tekoa. The passengers were not physically injured but the vehicle was damaged in the attack.

On the western side of Gush Etzion, Arab terrorists firebombed an Israeli public bus also Monday night as it traveled past the Al Fuwar junction near Kiryat Arba and Hebron. No word on the status of the vehicle, but no physical injuries reported among the passengers.

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

A teenage terrorist was shot and killed at 8:35 PM Israel time at Al-Ram village in Judea and Samaria, after throwing a Molotov cocktail at IDF soldiers, Arab media reported.

No soldier was harmed.

According to Ma’an, a 12-year-old Arab was killed Tuesday evening during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the town of Al-Ram north of Jerusalem. The teen, who was pronounced dead on arrival at the Palestine Medical Center, was identified by the Palestinian Ministry of Health as 12-year-old Muhye Muhammad Sidqi al-Tabbakhi.

Clashes erupted after Israeli forces raided the town of Al-Ram in response to a gang of Arab youths who threw rocks and empty bottles at Israeli soldiers who then responded by shooting live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear gas bombs, Ma’an reported.
