8 Overnight Arab Terror Attacks on Israeli Motorists

Friday, November 6th, 2015

In eight separate cases overnight Thursday night Israeli motorists found themselves with flying rocks and flaming bottle bombs smashing into their cars — sometimes directly at their windshields.

Arab terrorists carried out at least eight such attacks in different locations in the early hours of Friday morning in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

Attackers hurled firebombs along southern areas of Highway 60 in Judea. Arab terrorists hurled rocks and firebombs at motorists who drove past the villages of El Aroub, Tubas, Ein Yabrud and Kfar Na’ama.

IDF soldiers searched the area for the perpetrators after several vehicles reported the attacks, and eventually found some of the weapons.

The forces discovered a stockpile of firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and rocks squirreled away for use as ammunition in attacks against Israeli motorists.

Attacks were also reported at the Mount of Olives and the City of David in Jerusalem, and near the Samaria Arab city of Tulkarm as well.

No information was released about damage to property or injuries to travelers.

IDF Confronts Terrorists on Two Fronts; One Rock-Thrower Killed

Monday, December 29th, 2014

Soldiers caught two Palestinian Authority rock-throwing terrorists in the act of trying to murder Jews on Monday and killed one and wounded the other after they refused to heed warning shots near the Tapuach junction in northern Samaria.

Elsewhere, soldiers fired warning shots at Gaza terrorists approaching Israel on land and by sea, and terrorists threw firebombs on the secondary highway linking Jerusalem with Tel Aviv via Modi’in. A firebomb attacks last Thursday night has left an 11-year-old Israeli girl in critical condition.

“The forces called them to halt and fired warning shots, and when they didn’t comply they responded to the threat with direct fire which wounded one of the attackers,” an IDF spokeswoman said.

The other terrorist, age 19 according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency, was evacuated to a hospital in Shechem with moderate gunshot wounds.

In Gaza, soldiers fired warning shots over the heads of Arabs approaching the separate barriers and at fishing boats veering towards prohibited waters.

Arabs, Israeli Security Forces Clash in Northern Jerusalem

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Arabs continued to clash Wednesday night with Border Patrol police officers in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

Journalists were ordered out of the danger zone and advised to move to the southern side of the checkpoint near the entrance to the neighborhood for their own safety.

Border Patrol police officers also moved closer to the edge of the neighborhood as well, as rioting Arabs continued to hurl firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and shoot fireworks into the sky and directly at police as well.

Arab violence across the city has been growing by the day, beginning with major riots breaking out at the Temple Mount on October 8.

On October 22, an Arab terrorist drove his car into a crowd of people waiting for the Jerusalem Light Rail near French Hill. A three month old baby and a woman from Ecuador were killed and numerous others were injured in that attack.

On October 29, Temple Mount Faithful organization head Rabbi Yehudah Glick was shot at point-blank range by an Islamic Jihad terrorist after speaking at an event held at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center near the Old City of Jerusalem. The terrorist asked Glick his name to be sure of his target before firing his weapon; Glick has undergone numerous surgeries and spent days fighting for his life at Shaare Tzedek Medical Center. In less than 24 hours Israeli security forces had tracked down his assassin, who opened fire at police when they surrounded the home. Muataz Ibrahim al-Hijazi was killed on October 30 in the shootout with police.

Yesterday, November 4, the Temple Mount was closed for the second time in a week by the Israeli government in response to the increasing Arab violence.

Arabs had clashed all weekend long with Israeli forces in multiple locations. The government was prompted to close the Temple Mount for the first time since 1967 the day after Glick was shot due to fears of Arab violence at the site, which is the holiest place on earth for Jews, and the third holiest site for Muslims.

Wednesday’s closure followed daily clashes in the Old City and Arab neighborhoods elsewhere in Jerusalem. Rioters attacked Israeli police with rocks and fireworks.

Earlier today another vehicular terrorist – this one a member of the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist organization – drove his van into a crowd of bystanders in two separate locations, and then got out of the vehicle and began attacking people with a crowbar. He fled when police arrived on the scene, and subsequently was shot and killed while they were in pursuit.

Arab Violence Against Police Follows Jerusalem Terror Attack

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

Six masked Arab men hurled rocks at a police car near a construction site close to the Jewish community of Beitar Illit late Wednesday afternoon.

The attack followed a vicious spate of terror in Jerusalem and a horrifying terror attack in the northern part of the capital earlier in the day.

No one was physically injured in the attack near Beitar Illit, although the police vehicle was damaged. IDF troops were called to the site and immediately began searching for the attackers.

Around mid-afternoon, Arabs in northern Jerusalem’s Shuafat neighborhood hurled firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and shot fireworks at Border Patrol officers.

In a separate incident, two Arabs sprayed tear gas at Jerusalem police officers. No one was injured in either attack.

One arrest was made.

Police Injured as Arab Rioters Lock Themselves inside Al Aqsa Mosque on Temple Mount

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

Dozens of masked Arab rioters locked themselves inside the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount Wednesday morning after they injured at least four policemen with firebombs, cement blocks and large rocks during visits by Jews and foreign tourists to the holy site.

One of the firebombs was hurled from within the mosque. At least one of the policemen was directly hit by a Molotov cocktail, which struck his protective gear. The bottle exploded but did not ignite.

Policemen were treated at the scene for light injuries, and several Arabs reportedly were hurt in the violence that continued at least until noon.

Unlike previous riots, the police did not bar Jews and tourists from continuing to visit the Temple Mount compound.

Police said they will “continue to take action to show zero tolerance in the face of any attempt to disturb the peace and will act to arrest rioters and bring them to trial.”

The tough stand comes after years of escalating violence by Arabs to keep Jews off of the Temple Mount site.

Arabs blocked the entrance to the Al Aqsa mosque with marble slabs, ropes and anything else that does not move, and then even poured inflammable liquid on the barricade, which police succeeded in removing.

Police are not entering the mosque, the Muslims’ holiest site in Jerusalem, in order not to provoke further violence.

Muslim clerics and Palestinian Authority leaders continues to accuse Israel of trying to cause the collapse of the Al Aqsa mosque by digging tunnels underneath, and media in the Arab world repeatedly report that Jews “storm” or “invade” the Temple Mount as part of a secret plan to build the Third Temple.

Israel this week unveiled a project for a new gate that would allow Jews to visit the Temple Mount site. PLO executive committee member Hanan Ashrawi charged Israel with “insulting” the Arab Muslim world by proposing the new entrance and added, “Israel is creating a new reality at the expense of Palestinians, their religious rights, sites, and historical identity.”

She did not explain what “religious rights” are being violated by Israel, unless one of those rights is to try to kill Jews.

Ashrawi also did not mention “Jewish religious rights.”

One of the favorite Palestinian Authority Arab world campaigns in recent years has been to claim that the First and Second Temples never existed and that there is no Jewish connection with the Temple Mount.

Even more ridiculous is that millions of Muslims, and non-Muslims, believe it.

 

2:15pm Update: Jewish visitors report that the Temple Mount was closed for them this afternoon.

4 Terror Attacks in 12 Hrs – Jerusalem Light Rail to Avoid Shuafat

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Security officials have decided enough is enough: four terror attacks on the Jerusalem Light Rail in 12 hours has ended the route through the capital’s northern neighborhood of Shuafat, at least for now.

Jerusalem Arab terrorists hurled firebombs and rocks at the Jerusalem Light Rail in two separate attacks in less than an hour on Monday night as the train passed through the capital’s Arab neighborhood of Shuafat. Two other attacks occurred earlier in the day.

Passengers instinctively ducked, and mothers with babies threw themselves down on to the floor of the train, some of them bursting into tears, according to witnesses quoted by the Hebrew-language 0404 website.

Miraculously, no one on the train was physically injured, although passengers were traumatized and the train itself was damaged in each of the attacks.

One of the passengers in the second attack of the day told 0404, “Suddenly the train was hit by two flaming firebombs… there was great panic and mothers laid down with their babies on the floor of the train. It is absolutely surreal, what we are going through here. Just unbelievable.”

The website noted that three masked Arab terrorists  hurled rocks at another Light Rail train during the first attack of the day.

Depending on size, the CityPass firm that runs the Light Rail must pay NIS 3,000 to NIS 5,000 to replace each window smashed by terrorists hurling rocks and firebombs at the train. Insurance does not cover the cost of replacing equipment damaged in terrorist attacks.

Arab rioters in Shuafat completely destroyed the infrastructure three Jerusalem Light Rail stations in the area at the start of Operation Protective Edge, preventing the train from passing through the neighborhood for a number of days. As it did then, the line will operate — at least temporarily — between Mount Herzl and Ammunition Hill, with the route ending at Ammunition Hill.

The northern Jerusalem neighborhoods of Shuafat, Beit Hanina, Pisgat Ze’ev and Neve Yaakov will thus be deprived of service due to Arab terrorism in Shuafat.  Jews live in at least two of the four neighborhoods, with a Jewish section recently having started in a third neighborhood as well.
