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.

Firebomb Attack in Jerusalem’s Gilo Neighborhood

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

An unidentified attacker or attackers hurled firebombs in the southern Jerusalem neighborhood of Gilo on Wednesday night.

The incendiary bottles (Molotov cocktails) were thrown in the area of Dov Yosef Street. No one was physically injured in the attack, according to Jerusalem police.

Update: Police have determined that the fire was not started by Molotov cocktails as originally thought. Youths from the nearby neighborhood of Sharfat ignited a couch, and then threw parts of it down the hill.

The firebombing did, however, ignite a brush fire and no details were available regarding property damage as a result of the attack.

Large security forces were deployed to search for the perpetrators as fire and rescue services extinguished the blaze.

No details were released about the extent of property damage.
