Hundreds of Gaza Arabs Riot at Erez Border Crossing

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Hundreds of Arab residents threw stones and burned tires at the Erez border crossing with northern Gaza at midday on Tuesday.

Some 200 Palestinian Arabs rioted in a possible attempt to storm the crossing, similar to the breach in the security fence that occurred late Monday and two days earlier, on Saturday as well.

Civilian contractors working on Monday to repair the damage from Saturday’s breach of the fence were attacked Monday by Palestinian Arab terrorists from the Gaza side of the border.

Security personnel closed the Erez crossing Tuesday in response to the violence and IDF soldiers at the scene used riot dispersal methods to address the situation.

Hundreds of Arabs Riot North of Jerusalem at Qalandia Checkpoint

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Hundreds of Palestinian Arabs gathered to attack Israeli security forces Tuesday in a mob at the Qalandia security checkpoint north of Jerusalem.

The checkpoint is located between Jerusalem and the Palestinian Authority capital city of Ramallah, in Samaria.

IDF soldiers and Border Police officers used non-lethal riot dispersal measures to contend with the attackers.

No injuries were reported.

Furious Israelis Protest Deadly Arab Terror Attacks in Judea, Samaria

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Furious Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria came out in force Thursday night to demonstrate against the continuing deadly terror attacks that once again left Israelis dead, and others wounded.

The IDF fanned out to search for the perpetrators, who managed to escape following the attack.

In several locations around Samaria, there were reports of Jewish protesters hurling rocks at Arab motorists driving on the roads, according to the Hebrew-language HaKol HaYehudi website.

Hundreds of Jews poured out of their homes in communities where protests were held in various locations around Judea and Samaria.

Some 150 Jews from Kiryat Arba protested at the entrance to the city near the Harsina neighborhood along Highway 60. The protesters reportedly walked to Hebron and threw stones at some of the Arab homes in the city. Police blocked the mob and prevented the situation from escalating there; the group then began to march towards the nearby Arab towns of Beit Anun and Halhul.

Also at the Givat Assaf Junction and the Gidon Junction on the Alon Highway, hundreds of Jews demonstrated, blocking the movement of Arab vehicles.

Arab terrorists continued their attacks as well, however.

A 28-year-old Jewish woman was injured by Palestinian Arabs who were throwing stones near the Yitzhar Junction. The woman was evacuated to Beilinson Medical Center in Petach Tikva, to be treated for an eye injury.


The Palestinian Authority’s Hebron intelligence chief was also attacked late Thursday night, struck by stone-throwers as he drove through Samaria.

It is unclear who perpetrated the attack, which took place in the exact same spot where Rabbi Eitam Henkin and his wife Na’ama were murdered by Arab terrorists just a few hours earlier.

The intelligence chief’s vehicle was smashed by the rocks and the official himself was injured in the attack. He was taken to a nearby medical center for treatment, according to Ynet. The incident is under investigation.

The IDF has deployed four additional battalions to Judea and Samaria in the wake of the lethal terror attack that took the lives of Rabbi Henkin and his wife Thursday night.

The first of the supplementary units is to arrive on Friday and will assist the existing units in searching for the murderers as well as other terrorists in the region.

Intifada Mark 3 – 12 Arab Suspects Arrested, 2 IDF Soldiers Wounded

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Arrests of Palestinian and Israeli Arab suspects continue daily as the attacks on Israeli Jews and others mount up, clearly escalating into what is obviously a deliberately organized, calculated Intifada Mark 3.

Israeli forces arrested 12 security suspects in eastern Jerusalem late Wednesday and early Thursday morning. Six adults and six minors were taken into custody on suspicion of disturbing public order.

A Palestinian Arab terrorist attacked a group of soldiers overnight into Thursday near Einav, a religious Zionist community located north of Jerusalem in the Samaria (Shomron) region.

The attacker, who pulled a knife and attempted to stab the soldiers, was caught and injured in the attack. Medics from the Arab Red Crescent emergency response service treated the attacker at the scene before he was taken for question to security personnel.

Earlier Wednesday night, two Israeli soldiers were hit by flying rocks while contending with a riot at the Palestinian Arab village of Beit Omar, between Kiryat Arba-Hebron and Gush Etzion.

One of the soldiers was seriously injured; the condition of the second soldier is unknown. Both were evacuated to a hospital in Jerusalem.

The attack occurred while Palestinian Arabs were hurling rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and firing guns to mark the speech of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas at the United Nations General Assembly. In his speech Abbas renounced the PA’s signing of the internationally-recognized 1994 Oslo Accords, declaring the PA no longer was bound by the mandates set forth therein.

Israeli motorists driving in two separate cars came under attack Thursday (Oct. 1) by Palestinian Arab terrorists on the road near Tekoa, in eastern Gush Etzion. A woman and a six-month-old baby, were wounded in the attack. Two other children were badly traumatized and required treatment for anxiety.

Both drivers continued to navigate their vehicles until they reached the safety of Tekoa, where they were able to inspect the damage to their cars.

Tekoa residents subsequently traveled to the Arab village near their town following the attack to protest the violence near their community. Clashes broke out between IDF soldiers and Arab residents after Tekoa’s military security coordinator fired into the air to warn Palestinian Arabs who had begun to throw stones at the vehicle of one of the families from Tekoa who came to protest.


Arab Stone-Throwers Clash with IDF Near Ramallah

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Palestinian Arabs clashed with IDF troops near the Palestinian Authority Arab capital of Ramallah, in Samaria, on Tuesday afternoon.

The rioters, who were mostly teens and young adults, were hurling rocks and other items at IDF soldiers to protest the ongoing violence at the Temple Mount compound.

No injuries have been reported and there were no arrests as of 3:30 pm Israel time.

Stone-Throwing Arab Terrorists Attack Drivers in Gush Etzion

Saturday, September 26th, 2015

Palestinian Arab terrorists attacked Israeli drivers in Judea along Highway 60 late Saturday night.

The attacks took place near the Jewish community of Efrat.

At least one vehicle was struck by rocks hurled by the attackers, which smashed the car’s windshield.

Miraculously, no one was physically hurt in the attack.

On Saturday, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) announced that four Israeli Arab teens were arrested for the Jerusalem stone-throwing murder on Rosh Hashana of Alexander Levlovitz.

This past Thursday, the Security Cabinet approved new rules of engagement as well as immediate steps to combat stone and Molotov cocktail throwers.

A new, three-year temporary order sets the minimum penalty of four years in prison for adults who throw stones and Molotov cocktails. Judges may deviate from the minimum sentences but must provide reasons for it.

Attempted Murder on Road to Jerusalem

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

A group of masked Arab Palestinians attempted to murder Israelis by heaving a huge rock through the windshield of a car being driven by Israelis towards Jerusalem

The windshield was smashed by the rock which just missed a six-month-old baby in a front carseat. The rock instead went over the baby’s head and landed in the backseat of the car.

The mother and the baby were covered in glass, but miraculously the only physical injuries were minor scratches.

One report on the attack on social media quoted the father of the baby saying, “We were attacked by fifteen masked [Palestinians]. This was clearly attempted murder. Thank God, it was a miracle from heaven.”

One woman who claims to be “Chicago/Palestinian” tweeted her disappointment that neither the baby nor the mother was killed:

Those are the kind of people whom the world wants Israel to treat as a peace partner.
