Arab Terror Attacks Popping Up in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Arab terror attacks continued Thursday night on the roads in and around Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, continuing the wave of Arab violence against Israeli Jews.

So far, Israel’s government and security establishment still intend to permit Arabs of all ages free access to the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount Friday, despite the week-long festival of internet incitement to violence by radical Islamist preachers calling for the murder of Jews on the altar of “rescuing Al Aqsa.”

On Route 60 in Samaria north of Jerusalem, Israelis escaped injury when Arabs opened fire at people standing at a hitchhiking station. The attack took place next to the Jewish community of Ofra in the Binyamin region. The terrorists shot at four soldiers who were guarding the hitchhiking post, firing three bullets from a handgun, according to security sources. No injuries were reported. IDF soldiers at the stop returned fire at the terrorists, who drove away in a white Skoda, heading in the direction of the Arab village of Yabrud.

At around the same time, four Arabs in a car disguised themselves as Israeli police officers and tried to stop an Israeli vehicle on the highway in Judea Thursday afternoon.

Shortly thereafter, an Israeli motorist was forced to take evasive action while driving on the road near Ofra when Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb at his vehicle. No one was injured in that attack and there was no damage to the vehicle. IDF forces are searching for the perpetrators in all of the above attacks.

Arabs in eastern Jerusalem this evening also hurled an improvised explosive device at Border Guard Police officers patrolling near the Mount of Olives cemetery. The pipe bomb was aimed at the officers stationed next to the ancient Jewish cemetery.

Rioters are throwing firebombs (Molotov cocktails and stones at Israeli vehicles as they drive near Hebron, and on the road close to the village of Husan, south of Jerusalem. Husan is the village located opposite Beitar along Highway 60. “There were stones on the road, and army jeeps in the village,” a Jewish resident of Efrat told JewishPress.com .

In the Jerusalem neighborhood of A-Tur, police searched for Arabs who hurled an IED at a patrol vehicle making the rounds earlier this evening. The explosive device was hurled from one of the houses in the neighborhood and missed the patrol vehicle. Instead, it hit a parked car and exploded. Two people received treatment for severe trauma in the attack.

In a separate attack, two IEDs (makeshift bombs) were hurled at the Tomb of the Biblical matriarch Rachel, where the IDF has posted a permanent security presence. No injuries were reported.

Police Officer Hurt in Arab Checkpoint Ramming Near Ofra

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

An Israeli police officer was wounded Wednesday when an Arab driver in a car with Israeli license plates rammed through a checkpoint north of Jerusalem, and then fled into an Arab village.

The suspected terror attack took place near the Jewish community of Ofra, at a checkpoint on Highway 60, near Shechem (Nablus), in Samaria.

The police officer had motioned to the driver to stop the car for a routine search.

According to local sources the vehicle slowed down, but then speeded up again and raced through the checkpoint.

One officer sustained a leg wound.

Police shot towards the vehicle, which kept going until it was well past the checkpoint, stopping several hundred meters away.

The driver then got out of the car, abandoning his vehicle and running on foot towards the nearby Palestinian Arab village of Silwad.

The vehicle is currently being scrutinized as military police and IDF forces comb the surrounding area for the perpetrator.

The IDF has blockaded a number of roads in the area in an effort to prevent the suspect from escaping.

Road Terrorists Hit the Wrong Target

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014

A Jerusalem Arab road terror mission to attack an Israeli bus went wrong Wednesday late afternoon and an Arab woman was wounded instead.

The victim was hurt when the bus in which she was riding came under a hail of rocks hurled by Arabs in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem.

The woman was cut by flying glass, and her wounds reportedly were light.

Jerusalem district police officers threw a dragnet around the area and started hunting for the attackers.

Earlier in the day, Israel Police forces arrested a veiled Palestinian Authority Arab woman near the town of Ofra. The woman was spotted holding several rocks at the time.

During the chase by Israeli police, the Arab woman also threw away a knife she had been holding, according to a report by the Hebrew-language newspaper Yediot Acharanot.

The female terrorist was eventually caught. She was arrested and taken to Binyamin Region police headquarters for further questioning.

Private TV Crew Catches Arab Rock-Throwers in the Act [video]

Friday, September 12th, 2014

A video crew for a security advising company caught Palestinian Authority Arab rock-throwers on film, leading to their arrest by the IDF Thursday.

Rock-throwing terrorists have been a deadly menace to Israeli drivers in Judea and Samaria, and sometimes beyond, for years because of the easy availability of weapons – rocks – and ridiculous IDF restrictions that forbid soldiers to shoot the “rock terrorists” unless there is a direct threat on their lives.

The aim of the rock-throwers is to murder, either by a direct hit on drivers and passengers or by causing a fatal crash, but that is not enough for the IDF top brass to allow troops to pull the trigger. Instead they shoot in the air and then hope they can catch up with the attackers.

The film crew that was on Highway 60, the major north-south artery in Judea and Samaria, caught two youth on film as they hurled rocks at passing cars near Ofra, north of Jerusalem.

The crew reported the incident to the IDF, and the footage helped soldiers apprehend the culprits.
