Police Foil Bombing in Jerusalem

Friday, October 16th, 2015

Police prevented on Friday morning a probable terror attack in Jerusalem by discovering am explosive device at a checkpoint at an Arab neighborhood next to Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital.

Earlier this week, alert traffic police discovered explosives in a car driven by an Arab woman on the highway from Maaleh Adumim to Jerusalem. They stopped car, and she threw a bomb at the police, lightly injuring one of the officers.

It has not been disclosed if she was on her way to carry out a suicide bombing or was trying to transfer the explosives to a terrorist in the city for a mega-terror attack.

Jerusalem Arabs Indicted for Plot to Bring Pipe Bombs to Temple Mount

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Indictments have been filed against three Jerusalem Arabs, including one minor, who were involved in making pipe bombs to attack police on the Al Aqsa mosque and compound on the Temple Mount during the recent High Holidays.

A gag order on the arrests of the gang was lifted Friday. Two adults from Jabel Mukaber, an Arab hotbed of terror and adjacent to the Jewish neighborhood of Talpiot, were charged with buying equipment and explosives for the bombs.

The two Arabs took materials to the home of a minor, who made 13 pipe bombs, 10 of which that were discovered during a police raid before last month’s Rosh HaShanah holiday.

The other three bombs were smuggled and later discovered on the Temple Mount, where Muslims forbid Jews from bringing any objects that are considered religious.

Muslims have accused Israel of violating their freedom of worship by preventing them from ascending to the holy site.

If “freedom of worship” means praying with pipe bombs, they are right.

Arabs Planned to Explode Pipe Bombs at Jews on Temple Mount

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Masked Arab rioters had prepared pipe bombs to be filled with explosives in a planned pogrom against Jews and non-Jewish tourists on the Temple Mount Sunday.

Advanced intelligence helped police foil the attack, and law enforcement officers startled the Arabs shortly after dawn, as reported here.

Police spokesmen stated:

Masked protesters who were inside the mosque threw stones and fireworks at police. Suspect pipes that could be filled with homemade explosives were also found at the entry to the [Al Aqsa] mosque.

Police later removed any doubts that the objects were not pipe bombs.

Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said the presence of pipe bombs at the on the Temple Mount “requires all of us to think again about arrangements” at the holy site.

Almost exactly a year ago, violence on the Temple Mount appeared to be on the verge of an all-out religious war, but a secret meeting between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Jordan’s King Abdullah resulted in a mutual understanding that Jews would continue to be prohibited from praying on the Temple Mount and Arabs Muslims would put a stop to violence.

The understanding lasted for several months, but a new round of escalation began several months ago.

Jordan’s reaction to today’s clash was not encouraging, and the Kingdom blamed Israel for “raiding” the mosque.

The Palestinian Authority-based Ma’an News Agency reported,:
An AFP journalist saw a number of people being detained and heavy police deployments in the Old City.

A Palestinian boy identified as Anas Siyam was evacuated to hospital after he was hit with a rubber-coated steel bullet in the chest. His condition is unknown….

A spokesman of the Palestinian Authority’s Fatah movement in Jerusalem, Raafat Ulayyan, urged the Palestinians in the West Bank and in Israel to ‘hurry to defend’ the holy Muslim place from which ‘our prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven.’
