A female Israeli motorist was attacked by Arab terrorists Monday night while driving on the road in northern Israel near Gan Ner.

Beit Arye-Ofarim Vehicle Ramming Terrorist Captured

Friday, December 11th, 2015

Security personnel have captured the Hamas terrorist who rammed his vehicle into a group of soldiers from the IDF’s Kedem Battalion Thursday at the entrance to the Jewish community of Beit Arye in Samaria.

Three soldiers were lightly wounded in the attack; a fourth was seriously injured. The battalion had been conducting routine security operations near Beit Arye-Ofarim at the time.

Muhammad Abdel Halim Alhamid Salem, 37, escaped after the attack, abandoning his vehicle in the Arab village of Rantis, where it was later found, and returning to Al-Lubban al-Gharbi, the village where he lives, in Samaria.

A search of the vehicle by IDF soldiers revealed a stun grenade and an M-16 military rifle, making it likely that a more serious terror attack was averted by the IDF presence. The rifle was later discovered to belong to one of the soldiers; the force of the impact when Salem rammed his vehicle into the troops sent the weapon flying into the car.

In a joint operation carried out by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the elite IDF Duvdevan unit, the terrorist was arrested late Thursday night.

Salem is no novice terror; he was placed in administrative detention in 2001 for six months on the strength of past terror activity.

Under initial questioning early Friday, he confessed to having carried out Thursday’s attack in responseto to Arab media incitement. He referred to “the situation in Jerusalem” and the Temple Mount, and the “murder of Palestinian children” in his response.

Firebomb Photos Latest ‘Rage’ Among Arab Terrorists

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

The latest “rage” among budding Arab terrorists involves shooting — from a camera, that is.

The firebomb (Molotov cocktail) is photographed just prior to being hurled at Israelis traveling on the roads.

The photo is then uploaded to Arab social media sites on the Internet.

Late Tuesday night Israelis came under firebomb attack on Loop 45, near Atarot, but no injuries were reported. Sure enough, shortly after the attack, alleged photos of the bottles used in the attack appeared in Arabic-language social media, which claimed the bottles were just “thrown away” after being photographed.

Earlier in the evening, photos appeared on the Internet of firebombs that were hurled at Israelis who were attacked on Highway 443.

Firebombing Attacks Arrive on Israel’s Highway 6

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Road terror has arrived on Israel’s superhighway, Highway 6.

Arab terrorists hurled firebombs (Molotov cocktails) in at least two separate attacks north of the Ayal Interchange on Highway 6 after midnight, early Tuesday morning (Oct. 6).

The attack occurred near the Palestinian Arab city of Kalkilya in Samaria.

An Israeli motorist who was driving along the highway overnight said he saw a firebomb fly through the air on to the road and ignite, according to the Hebrew-language 0404 website.

A second motorist made a similar report to Israel Police but by the time a patrol car reached the site and scanned the area, the perpetrator was long gone.

The flames caused no damage and no one was hurt by the attack.

Recently an aide to Shas government minister Arye Deri was struck in one of two stone-throwing terror attacks from a bridge over Highway 6.

The rear window of the aide’s vehicle was hit as he was driving in the northbound lane, and sustained minor damage.

The rear windshield of a second vehicle that was struck was smashed.
