Israeli Man Injured in Stoning Attack Near Beitar Illit

Tuesday, January 10th, 2017

An Israeli man was injured Tuesday night in a stoning attack by Arab terrorists while driving on the Hussan bypass road near the Jewish community of Beitar Illit, in Judea. His identity was not released, but he was reported to be in good condition.

In addition, several private vehicles and an Israeli public bus were also damaged in the attacks.

At least one firebombing attack in the area also caused a fire on the side of the road when the explosive, a Molotov cocktail, landed and started a blaze.

Israeli security forces were summoned to the site to search for the attackers.

The Hussan bypass road has increasingly become a magnet for Arab terrorists who target drivers with stoning and firebombing attacks as they are forced to slow down which traveling along a curved stretch of highway.

“The IDF is having difficulty with the current policy of bringing quiet to the region, while drivers are continuing to endanger their lives and those of their passengers on a daily basis,” military journalist Noa Sofer Magid wrote on the Hebrew-language 0404 site Tuesday night, in connection with the attacks.

The Hussan bypass road is located about two minutes’ drive south of the capital, just on the other side of the southern checkpoint at the entrance to the tunnel road into the southern neighborhoods of Jerusalem.

Arab Terrorists Escalate Attacks on Israeli Drivers After UN Resolution 2334

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

In the wake of UN Security Council resolution 2334(2016), Arab terrorists are becoming even bolder, with stoning attacks against Israeli drivers escalating Monday even further.

Below is a list of some of the attacks that took place on Monday:

Arab terrorists smashed the windshield of an Israeli Egged bus in a stoning attack Monday night at the intersection of Uzi Narkiss and Neve Yaakov in Jerusalem. Miraculously, the driver managed to keep the bus moving, and none of the passengers were physically injured in the attack.

Arab sources reported an improvised explosive device was thrown at Israeli military forces Monday afternoon during operations near the northern entrance to the town of Bethlehem. No injuries or damage reported and all personnel returned safely to base.

A gang of some 15 Arab terrorists attacked a transport van filled with Jewish students on Monday morning. The van came under a hail of rocks as it was traveling the road north of the Adorim junction. None of the passengers were physically injured, but there was no word on whether the vehicle was damaged.

Terrorists also attacked an Israeli bus driver Monday late morning on the Gush Etzion-Hebron Highway, also known as Highway 60. The attackers hurled stones at the bus as it passed the Arab village of Beit Omar. None of the passengers were physically injured, but again, no word on damage to the bus. Beit Omar is known as a terrorist stronghold in the Judea region and a hotspot for stoning attacks on Israeli drivers.

There were more stoning attacks at midday on Israeli drivers traveling the Gush Etzion-Hebron Highway between Beit Omar and the junction to the Jewish community of Karmei Tzur, south of Gush Etzion, 20 minutes’ drive from Jerusalem. No one was physically injured, but at least one car was damaged in the attack.

Ten minutes after that attack, Arab terrorists were back on the same road, attempting to kill Israeli drivers by stoning. This time the ambush took place south of Beit Omar, and from an easterly direction. The driver whose car was hit reported no physical injuries to passengers in the vehicle, but the car was damaged.

Meanwhile, north of Jerusalem, Arab terrorists were stoning Israeli drivers between the Jewish community of Neve Tzuf and the community of Nahliel. No physical injuries were reported there.

In the Binyamin region, four terrorists were spotted as they were stoning Israeli drivers on the road between the Jewish communities of Beit El and Psagot. There were no physical injuries, but no word on damage to the vehicles.

Closer to Jerusalem in the early afternoon, terrorists hurled rocks at an Israeli bus traveling along Highway 443, known as the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem Highway. The attack occurred near the A-Tira Bridge. No one was physically injured in the attack.

Palestinian Authority Terrorists Escalate Attacks Around Jerusalem

Monday, December 26th, 2016

Palestinian Authority terrorists attacked Israelis in multiple areas around the holy city of Jerusalem and at the holy resting place of the Biblical matriarch Rachel, just one day after the holiest day on the Christian calendar and the start of Chanukah, the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights.

On Monday afternoon, Arab terrorists attacked the Tomb of Rachel itself, aiming for the security forces who protect the tomb and those who come to pray at the site.

The tomb of the matriarch is located just south of Jerusalem, and slightly north of Bethlehem.

The attackers hurled an improvised explosive device (IED) at security forces guarding the tomb. No physical injuries were reported.

In three other separate attacks, Arab terrorists also hurled rocks at Israeli security forces Monday in a number of outlying neighborhoods around the capital city of Jerusalem.

Israeli forces came under attack in Shuafat, in Betunia and in Issawiya, according to security sources.

No injuries were reported by midday, and Israeli forces were using standard riot dispersal methods to deal with the attacks.

Jerusalem Light Rail Damaged in Hail of Rocks

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016

The Jerusalem Light Rail came under a hail of rocks again as it passed through the northern Arab neighborhood of Shuafat in the capital on Tuesday night.

Terrorists caused considerable damage to at least one of the cars on the train, shattering two windows.

The near-daily attacks have cost the company that operates the Light Rail millions of shekels in repairs to damaged cars and lost revenue due to cars out of service.
