Israeli Woman Attacked While Driving in Binyamin, Near Nili

Saturday, December 24th, 2016

The first night of Chanukah — Saturday night — was a night of miracles indeed for an Israeli woman driving on a road through the Binyamin region.

The driver was firebombed by Arab terrorists while driving along Highway 446, near the hilly area around the Jewish community of Nili.

Although the terrorists hurled five firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at her vehicle as she passed by, miraculously the driver was not physically injured, and her vehicle was undamaged.

Israeli forces were deployed to the scene of the attack to search for the terrorists.

Serious Damage to Israeli Car After Stoning Attack Near Kiryat Arba

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

A car was heavily damaged Sunday night (Nov. 13) after Israeli drivers came under attack by Arab terrorists from the Palestinian Authority while traveling in Judea near Kiryat Arba.

The attackers hurled large rocks — possibly boulders or cinder blocks — at Israeli motorists as they drove between Kiryat Arba and the Arab village of Beit Anoun.

One of the vehicles was unable to dodge the projectiles, and was badly damaged in the attack.

Local sources warned that terrorists had begun to place boulders on the road in order to block and trap Jewish drivers, who then become easy prey for the attackers.

“Stoning attacks are continuing on the road between Kiryat Arba and Beit Anoun, as well as in the direction of Ofer, with terrorists using rocks to block the road,” the Hatzolah of Etzion emergency response organization warned shortly after 9 pm Sunday night.

At least five cars were attacked by a group of nearly a dozen terrorists, according to the organization. One heavily damaged vehicle reached the Jewish community of Adora, “and by a miracle the driver and passengers were not physically harmed,” Hatzolah of Etzion reported.

IDF and other security forces were deployed to the site and subsequently arrested at least two of the perpetrators after having caught the attackers “red-handed” in the act of throwing rocks at motorists traveling on the road.

Paintbottle and Firebomb Attacks on Israeli Buses and Cars in Gush Etzion

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb at an Israeli public bus Sunday night as it traveled near the Jewish community of Ma’ale Amos in eastern Gush Etzion.

Miraculously no one was physically injured in the attack. There was no word on the condition of the bus.

Earlier in the evening and on the western side of Gush Etzion, Arab terrorists hurled a paint-filled bottle at an Israeli motorists traveling along Highway 60 past the Arab village of Beit Omar.

The village is located between the Gush Etzion junction and Hebron, just a few minutes south of the Arab town of El Aroub. The attack took place early Sunday evening.

No physical injuries were reported in the attack but the status of the vehicle was not clear.

Paint bottle attacks are becoming more common as terrorists become more inventive in their attempts to kill Israelis on the roads.

Bottles filled with paint shatter on impact when they hit a passing vehicle, spreading a thick coat of colorful paint on the windows of any moving vehicle. They immediately blind the driver, causing the vehicle to slow down at the very least, if not to crash.

Stoning Attacks Targeting Israeli Drivers in Center and South

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

Arab terrorists from the Palestinian Authority were once again actively attacking Israeli motorists on various roads on Sunday.

Israeli motorists south of Jerusalem were attacked with a hail of rocks as they traveled along the northern bypass road around Kiryat Arba on Sunday afternoon.

None of the travelers were physically injured, but there was no information about the state of their vehicle.

In the center of the country, a driver reported in to Israeli security personnel at the Maccabi’im junction on Highway 443 that he, too, had been attacked. Highway 443 is also known as the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem Highway.

The driver came under a hail of rocks as he drove near the Jewish community of Beit Horon.

No one in the vehicle was physically injured, and the vehicle was not damaged, according to the report. Security forces were investigating.

Israeli drivers have often been targeted by terrorists in that area over the past year, sometimes with lethal results.

About an hour later, Arab terrorists hurled stones at Israeli motorists traveling on Route 557, near the Jewish community of Avnei Hefetz, as they traveled in the direction of the Te’anim checkpoint.

No one in the vehicle was physically injured, but the vehicle itself was damaged.

Terror Near Highway 443, Heading Towards Jerusalem

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

An Israeli public bus, several civilian vehicles and a number of military vehicles sustained damage Sunday night after being pelted with rocks by Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists on Route 45.

The attacks took place near Highway 443 – the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem Highway – about 200 meters past the Ofer checkpoint, in the direction of traveling towards Jerusalem.

Windows were smashed on the bus, as well as on some of the civilian and military vehicles. Even a garbage truck was damaged.

None of the passengers were physically injured, however.

“Utter chaos and anarchy; that’s the only way to describe the Israeli government’s management of the security of its citizens on Israeli roads. It’s a disgrace,” one motorist told the Hebrew-language 0404 website.

Arab Terror Gangs Attacking Travelers in Judea and Samaria

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

A gang of nearly a dozen Arab terrorists attacked Israeli motorists near the site of an archaeological excavation close to the Okafim Junction late Tuesday afternoon.

Numerous vehicles came under a hail of rocks as the attackers hurled stones at the motorists as they traveled past the Arab gang.

It’s not clear whether anyone was physically injured in the attack, nor is there any information yet on how many vehicles were damaged.

Israeli drivers also came under stoning attacks as they drove near the Yehuda Farm archaeological site near the Judean Arab city of Halhul, along Highway 60 in Gush Etzion. The site is close to the spot where Asher Palmer and his baby son Yonatan were murdered in a stoning attack by Arab terrorists several years ago.

Arab terrorists also attacked drivers traveling along Highway 60 north of Jerusalem in the Samaria region, as they approached the Jewish community of Shiloh, and at another site northeast of the Palestinian Authority capital city of Ramallah, where a female traveler sustained a minor hand injury from shattered glass.
