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.

Intifada Mark 3 – 12 Arab Suspects Arrested, 2 IDF Soldiers Wounded

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Arrests of Palestinian and Israeli Arab suspects continue daily as the attacks on Israeli Jews and others mount up, clearly escalating into what is obviously a deliberately organized, calculated Intifada Mark 3.

Israeli forces arrested 12 security suspects in eastern Jerusalem late Wednesday and early Thursday morning. Six adults and six minors were taken into custody on suspicion of disturbing public order.

A Palestinian Arab terrorist attacked a group of soldiers overnight into Thursday near Einav, a religious Zionist community located north of Jerusalem in the Samaria (Shomron) region.

The attacker, who pulled a knife and attempted to stab the soldiers, was caught and injured in the attack. Medics from the Arab Red Crescent emergency response service treated the attacker at the scene before he was taken for question to security personnel.

Earlier Wednesday night, two Israeli soldiers were hit by flying rocks while contending with a riot at the Palestinian Arab village of Beit Omar, between Kiryat Arba-Hebron and Gush Etzion.

One of the soldiers was seriously injured; the condition of the second soldier is unknown. Both were evacuated to a hospital in Jerusalem.

The attack occurred while Palestinian Arabs were hurling rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and firing guns to mark the speech of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas at the United Nations General Assembly. In his speech Abbas renounced the PA’s signing of the internationally-recognized 1994 Oslo Accords, declaring the PA no longer was bound by the mandates set forth therein.

Israeli motorists driving in two separate cars came under attack Thursday (Oct. 1) by Palestinian Arab terrorists on the road near Tekoa, in eastern Gush Etzion. A woman and a six-month-old baby, were wounded in the attack. Two other children were badly traumatized and required treatment for anxiety.

Both drivers continued to navigate their vehicles until they reached the safety of Tekoa, where they were able to inspect the damage to their cars.

Tekoa residents subsequently traveled to the Arab village near their town following the attack to protest the violence near their community. Clashes broke out between IDF soldiers and Arab residents after Tekoa’s military security coordinator fired into the air to warn Palestinian Arabs who had begun to throw stones at the vehicle of one of the families from Tekoa who came to protest.


Arab Stone-Throwers Clash with IDF Near Ramallah

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

Palestinian Arabs clashed with IDF troops near the Palestinian Authority Arab capital of Ramallah, in Samaria, on Tuesday afternoon.

The rioters, who were mostly teens and young adults, were hurling rocks and other items at IDF soldiers to protest the ongoing violence at the Temple Mount compound.

No injuries have been reported and there were no arrests as of 3:30 pm Israel time.

Stone-Throwing Arab Terrorists Attack Drivers in Gush Etzion

Saturday, September 26th, 2015

Palestinian Arab terrorists attacked Israeli drivers in Judea along Highway 60 late Saturday night.

The attacks took place near the Jewish community of Efrat.

At least one vehicle was struck by rocks hurled by the attackers, which smashed the car’s windshield.

Miraculously, no one was physically hurt in the attack.

On Saturday, the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) announced that four Israeli Arab teens were arrested for the Jerusalem stone-throwing murder on Rosh Hashana of Alexander Levlovitz.

This past Thursday, the Security Cabinet approved new rules of engagement as well as immediate steps to combat stone and Molotov cocktail throwers.

A new, three-year temporary order sets the minimum penalty of four years in prison for adults who throw stones and Molotov cocktails. Judges may deviate from the minimum sentences but must provide reasons for it.

4 Arab Teens Arrested in Jerusalem Terror Rock Attack on Rosh Hashana

Saturday, September 26th, 2015

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) announced Saturday night that four Israeli Arab minors have been arrested in connection with the Rosh Hashana terror attack that killed Jerusalemite Alexander Levlovitz.

The four Arab teens are accused of hurling rocks at Levlovitz’s car as he drove in the Arnona neighborhood in southern Jerusalem, causing him to lose control of the vehicle.

Levlovitz was mortally injured as the car crashed into a light pole, and died shortly thereafter at a hospital in Jerusalem. His wife and daughter were less seriously injured in the crash.

After intensive intelligence gathering, the investigation by the Shin Bet led to the arrest of the following four Israeli Arab teens:

Muhamad Salah Muhamad, age 18 Walid Faras Mustafa, age 18 Abed Muchamad Abed Rabu Daviat, 19

An additional suspect is a minor and his name may not be released due to his age.

Security Cabinet Unanimously Approves New Measures Against Stone-Throwers

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

The Security Cabinet unanimously approved new measures Thursday night against terrorists who hurl stones, firecrackers, fireworks, stun grenades and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at Israeli civilians and security personnel.

“The security cabinet has decided to authorize police to use live ammunition against people throwing stones and Molotov cocktails when the life of a third person is threatened and no longer only when a police officer is threatened,” a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office said.

The cabinet approved the use of .22 Ruger sniper rifles against rioters hurling stones, who endanger others, and live fire in any case in which lives are endangered.

Stiffened penalties include a mandatory minimum four-year prison sentence and a fine for convicted stone-throwers ages 14-18. Also approved was an evaluation of possibly fining the parents of convicted children ages 12 to 14.

“In Israel, these murderous objects won’t be thrown unanswered and without prevention,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu tweeted following the cabinet vote.

However, children under age 12 cannot be held accountable for crimes under current Israeli law. With the rise in terror attacks, there has also been a corresponding escalation in the number of Arab 10 year olds who are being caught throwing stones at Israeli soldiers and police officers as well.

IDF Soldiers Bombed in Gush Etzion, Rocks Hurled at Border Police in Jerusalem

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

Palestinian Arab terrorists bombed IDF soldiers in Gush Etzion Saturday night. The terrorists hurled three improvised explosive devices (IED) at the soldiers while they were out on patrol.

The attack took place near the Arab village of Beit Fajar, close to the Jewish community of Migdal Oz and the Arab community of El Aroub. No injuries were reported.

In the capital, two Palestinian Arab terror suspects were arrested in the Jerusalem suburb of Issawiya also Saturday night, on the orders of a judge.

While the soldiers were operating in the neighborhood, Palestinian Arab terrorists began hurling rocks at Border Guard Police.

The troops chased the perpetrators and arrested five suspects.

Palestinian Arab terrorists also firebombed an IDF base east of Jerusalem late Saturday night, and then attacked the firefighters who came to extinguish the blaze that was ignited around the watchtower.

The two firefighter crews who arrived at the scene were met by a hail of rocks and an exploding Molotov cocktail.

IDF soldiers responded with non-lethal riot dispersal measures.

The attack took place at the Anatot Base, just east of the Mount of Olives and Mount Scopus, and mimicked an attack Thursday that was nearly identical. That attack took place at Jerusalem’s Ofrit Base on Mount Scopus, near the Hadassah University campus and not far from Saturday night’s attack.
