False Terror Alarm Causes Panic on Train

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

The high tension wire running through the hearts and minds of Israeli blew a fuse Thursday morning when female soldiers on a train north of Haifa thought they spotted an Arab with a knife.

They screamed “terrorist,” and a soldier acted quickly and fired a shot in the air.

A passenger pulled the emergency brake, people ran as fast as they could, and police arrived, only to discover that there was no terrorist.

Seven passengers suffered bruises and shock, but these days, better safe than sorry, or dead.

Rocket-Proof Rail Station Opens in Sderot

Wednesday, December 25th, 2013

The new railway station in rocket-battered Sderot in southern Israel now is one of the safest places in town following its opening Tuesday afternoon.

The terminal was built with special reinforcements to protect passengers from Kassam rockets, thousands of which have exploded in the small city since the Oslo War, otherwise known as the Second Intifada, which broke out in 2000 and escalated with Israel’s expulsion of Jews and withdrawal of the IDF from nearby Gaza in 2005.

Sderot now is the southern tip of the rail line that extends from Tel Aviv to Ashkelon, and tracks are being built to sonnet it with Be’er Sheva.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu attended Tuesday’s ceremony opening the station and declared that Sderot now is a”suburb of Tel Aviv.”

Train Mows Down 14 Camels in Negev

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

A train on the Dimona-Be’er Sheva line in the Negev killed 14 camels without being derailed and without any injuries to passengers. The engineer stopped the train at the next station, inspected the train to make sure there was no damage, and then continues to Be’er Sheva.

Camels frequently roam on highways and tracks in the Negev, where Bedouin raise herds of camels, causing a danger to motorists.

An Israel Railways official said the incident occurred at night, when darkness prevented the train engineer from seeing the camels.
