Infiltration Attempt into Maaleh Shomron

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

On Tuesday evening, security forces discovered that the security fence of Maaleh Shomron was cut open on the west side, which faces the (hostile) Arab village of Azun. Maaleh Shomron is just west of Ginot Shomron (see the map in the attached photo).

Rapid Response Teams in Maaleh Shomron and Ginot Shomron were called up, and units went house to house checking that the infiltrators did not enter one of the few hundred homes in Maaleh Shomron. The Ginot Shomon security teams patrolled around the two towns for 3 hours while the search was going on.

At 11:00 PM, the IDF Battalion Commander issued the all-clear, though leaving troops within the town, just in case.

Security sources tell us there’s no connection to the earlier report on the Arab from Azun who was stopped with a knife and slingshot while hiking along Nachal Kana, which is just a few hundred meters below Ginot Shomron.

The army believes the Maaleh Shomron event is the more serious of the two.

Exaggerated Reports of Terrorist Incursion into Ginot Shomron

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Various news sources are reporting that a terrorist with a knife was captured while trying to squeeze under the fence into the town of Ginot Shomron around 6:30 PM on Tuesday.

The story is exaggerated. A Palestinian youth who had a knife and a slingshot was questioned as he was hiking along Nachal Kana, a stream which is located hundreds of meters below Ginot Shomron. He was seen by Jewish hikers also hiking along the river, who called the army and handed over the 24 year old Arab from nearby Kfar Azun to the IDF.

First response teams of the town were not activated due to non-likelihood of a terror attack in this instance.
