Egged Bus Attacked Traveling to Western Wall in Jerusalem

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

An Egged bus was attacked by Arab terrorists as it traveled Sunday morning on the road to the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Arabs hurled rocks at the Israeli public bus, smashing the windshield and several windows on the vehicle as it reached the Nablus Gate at the Old City entrance.

An IDF soldier was treated at the scene for light wounds to his hand from flying glass.

A dragnet was thrown around the area as Jerusalem District police opened a search to hunt down the attackers.

IDF Kills 1 Terrorist, Wounds Another in Samaria

Saturday, January 31st, 2015

Israeli paratroopers shot and killed a Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist Saturday night after he hurled a deadly firebomb at an Israeli motorist traveling in Samaria.

After a brief manhunt the forces shot and captured the second terrorist who also had been targeting Israeli motorists on the same road; he suffered a leg wound. That attacker was hurling firebombs at passing vehicles as well.

The IDF force set out to hunt down the third terrorist as well, who also was attacking passing Israeli vehicles on the road, located near the Jewish community of Yitzhar.

The IDF emphasized to media in its statement that the soldiers were operating according to the rules of engagement.

“I want to bless the soldiers who responded appropriately to the terrorist this evening,” praised Samaria Regional Council head Gershon Mesika. “Unfortunately we already know the awful results that can occur from rocks and firebombs hurled in the name of terror. Still, we must strengthen the soldiers who deal day to day with the enemy and, as we have seen tonight, not hesitate to respond.

“It is crucial that every terrorist know that the moment he intends to throw a rock or a firebomb at an Israeli soldier or an Israeli citizens, his fate is in his own hands.”

Israeli vehicles that travel between the Jewish community of Kedumim and the PA Arab village of Burin are at extremely high risk because the road has become tantamount to a rock-throwing and firebomb field for Arab terrorists in the area.

Since a young girl was critically injured in a terror attack on the road more than a month ago, however, Israeli security forces are taking the matter more seriously and have begun to intensify their protection of motorists in the area. The child and her father were both burned – the little girl nearly died – when their car was struck by a firebomb hurled by Arab road terrorists.

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.

Road Terror Attack on Southern Israeli Bus

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Arabs attacked a southern Israeli bus traveling Thursday night from Arad to Be’er Sheva along Highway 31.

The unidentified attackers hurled rocks at the bus, breaking the windshield and injuring a 60-year-old man.

Israel Police launched a search to hunt for the terrorists. Numerous “unrecognized” Bedouin encampments and small villages are located among the hills that run alongside Highway 31 between Arad and Be’er Sheva, as well as three “recognized” Bedouin towns.

No arrests have yet been made.

Arab Attack on Jerusalem Bus, No Physical Injuries

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

Palestinian Authority media propaganda has become extremely effective in conditioning even some of the area’s younger children to become vicious, murderous terrorists aiming to kill Jews on the road. A gang of three pre-teens attempted to do precisely that on Sunday evening.

Arabs attacked a Jerusalem bus traveling on Derech Jericho in the capital, damaging the vehicle. Miraculously, the passengers escaped physical injury.

The bus came under a hail of stones that were hurled by a gang of Arab minors from the side of the road in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The windshield was broken in the attack – something that could easily have caused the driver to lose control of his vehicle and send the bus flying off the road into a fatal accident.

Such attacks have achieved precisely that goal in the past, including one near Kiryat Arba-Hebron that killed a father and baby boy.

In this incident, Border Patrol police officers managed to apprehend three Arab minors, 10 to 12 years old. They called the parents of the young attackers, and reported them to social services officials.

Firebombing in Jerusalem Neighborhood

Sunday, December 7th, 2014

Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb (Molotov cocktail) at an Israeli vehicle on Saturday in the Shiloach (Silwan) neighborhood of Jerusalem.

Shiloach is next to the Old City, nestled along the eastern side of the rampart walls.

The vehicle, which was heavily damaged in the attack, belonged to a security guard in the area. An investigation has been launched, according to Israel Police.

If and when the perpetrator or perpetrators are caught, it is likely they will face a stiff prison sentence.

On Sunday, November 2, the government cabinet voted to add an amendment to the current penal code, allowing judges to imprison a convicted terrorist for up to 20 years for throwing or casting stones or other objects — such as a firebomb — at a motor vehicle.

Man Loses Eye to Arab Road Terror Near Hadera

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

A man lost an eye after he was attacked last Friday by an Arab in a road terror attack on Route 65 near Hadera. The attack was not publicized by mainstream media, nor did police disseminate information to the public about the danger to motorists on the road.

This past Saturday night, the Hebrew-language 0404 website also reported on a gang of Arabs who attacked a couple of Jews walking their dogs in the community of Beit Dagan. The attackers hurled rocks and even citrus fruits at the man and woman as they were walking their dogs in an orchard. The pair released the dogs, who then defended their owners and drove away the attackers.

The potentially deadly road terror attack that took place last Friday, however, came out of the blue — according to the 56-year-old Jewish driver — who told 0404 he was driving at the time along Route 65 near Talmei Elazar, next to Hadera.

The driver, whose name is Shimon, said a car passed his and then just cut him off and blocked him on the road. The Arab then got out of his car, screaming threats and curses, and started to hit him with his hands. When Shimon told him he was calling the police, the Arab pulled out a crowbar and beat Shimon in the face and over the head.

“I lost my eye and I’m still in the hospital,” Shimon told 0404. “I hope the police will take this incident seriously, because up to this point, I have heard no warnings to the public about this kind of terror that can threaten people who are on the roads.”

A staff member in the hospital expressed his own shock that such an event could even take place, regardless of motive.

“I have an infant seat in my own car,” he said, “a first aid kit, some wood treatment and CDs. This Arab had a crowbar in order to harm Jews. I just don’t understand how such a story does not grab the headlines in this country.”

As a matter of fact, police had not publicized the attack at all, despite having received several reports by eyewitnesses to the incident, who called the police hotline.
