Jerusalem Light Rail Attacked by Stone-Throwers in Shuafat

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

The Light Rail came under attack by Arabs hurling rocks at about 9 am Tuesday in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

No physical injuries were reported but as has often been the case in such attacks, at least one car was damaged.

Stone-throwing attacks on the Light Rail line usually take place in Shuafat or one of the nearby neighborhoods. They prove to be costly both to the company that runs the line, and to city residents.

When cars are damaged they are taken out of service to be repaired at a cost of thousands of shekels.

But fewer cars also means reduced availability and less convenient schedules for commuters in Arab neighborhoods too, which clearly does not concern the terrorists in their midst.

IDF Soldier Killed in Arab Terror Attack at Gas Station on Highway 443

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

A 20-year-old IDF soldier was murdered and an 18-year-old teenage girl was hurt in an Arab terrorist attack at the Dor Alon gas station on Highway 443 on Monday afternoon.

The soldier has been identified as Ziv Mizrachi of Givat Ze’ev HY”D.

Ziv Mizrachi H"YD. Murdered by an Arab terrorist on Nov. 23, 2015.

Ziv Mizrachi H”YD. Murdered by an Arab terrorist on Nov. 23, 2015.

The Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist tackled Ziv Mizrahi when he exited the car in which he and the Jewish girl arrived at the gas station, stabbing them both. The station is located between Jerusalem and Modi’in near Beit Horon.

The young lady is good condition and was evacuated to a nearby medical center by Magen David Adom medics.

The terrorist was neutralized; he was shot and killed.

At least one previous terror attack took place on Highway 443 near the Maccabim checkpoint in July of this year. Arab terrorists prepared an ambush for Israeli motorists: a gas cylinder hidden among burning tires blocking the Jerusalem-bound side of the highway. Sappers were summoned to neutralize the threat.

Arab terrorists also continued to attack Israeli vehicles on the highway – known as the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway – hurling rocks and other items at the travelers, throughout the summer months.

‘Call for Young People’ Recruits Terrorist Trainees on Twitter?

Friday, November 13th, 2015

A “Call for Young People” was put out early Friday in Arabic over the Internet via the Twitter social networking site, accompanied by a glowing picture of an Arab teen preparing to hurl a rock with a slingshot.

The fancy computer graphics are attractive to the eye, with bright colors that are sulfurous yellow and cherry-red above. The human figure is in ethereal white. The message seems pretty clear: violence awaits.

The “call” is only one of many such methods used to recruit new blood for the Palestinian Authority terror machine, which has begun to feed on its own children.

Allegedly the logic behind the strategy is two-fold:
1. Israeli authorities are loathe to jail a child, particularly one at age 13 or below, regardless of crime committed;

2. If the child is shot and wounded or killed during the course of attacking Israelis, that too is a “plus” because it makes for a terrific photo image to be used abroad, one that conveys the ultimate in “poor Arab population being abused by the powerful Israelis” graphics.

One way to avoid falling in to this abyss is to bar news coverage at a terror attack site. That is not popular but it can be done, citing the safety of media. Another way, and probably more effective, is for security personnel to erect an opaque cylindrical barrier around the body of any child terrorist shot or otherwise wounded during any attack.

Such a barrier will prevent the photographing of such images and their immediate misuse by media abroad.

The “call for young people” being flashed around the region by social networks in Arabic is not new: it is just updated with the Internet and bells and whistles now provided with computer graphics programs.

The sooner Israel learns to counter such posts, the better off we all will be.

Arab Terror Attacks Aimed at IDF, Light Rail Train

Friday, November 13th, 2015

Arabs attacked a Light Rail train Thursday night in northern Jerusalem and hurled rocks at Israeli security personnel early Friday in Samaria.

Riots were reported early Friday as Palestinian Authority Arabs clashed with Israeli military forces in Al-Bireh, which is adjacent to Ramallah in Samaria, about 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) north of Jerusalem.

The attackers threw stones at the IDF soldiers, according to local sources.

Elsewhere in related security news, Arab attackers threw stones Thursday night at a Light Rail train as it traveled through the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

None of the passengers were physically injured in the attack, but at least one of the cars was damaged and was taken out of service.

On Tuesday, two Arab children stabbed a 25-year-old guard aboard a Jerusalem Light Rail train in a terror attack.

The guard was slightly wounded but shot the 11-year-old who had stabbed him, while passengers restrained the other young terrorist until police arrived.

“I wanted to kill Jews to avenge my cousin Muhammad who was murdered at Damascus Gate,” one of the two young terrorists later confessed to police. He explained that he wanted to avenge the death of his cousin, who was shot and killed last month after stabbing two police officers in Jerusalem.

The two youngsters, 14-year-old Muawiyyeh Alkam and 11-year-old Ali Alkam are both residents of Shuafat. They were seen on CCTV security footage from their attack carefully observing their target on the train in nearby Pisgat Ze’ev and waiting until the guard was distracted to draw their knives and attack.

Alkam, age 11, is hospitalized in good condition at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. Remand for his 14-year-old cousin has been extended for another week by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, pending presentation of evidence by police for arraignment and indictment.

Israeli Security Forces Enter Hebron Hospital to Nab Arab Terrorist

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

Israeli security personnel entered a Hebron hospital to arrest an Arab terrorist who tried to kill a Jew in Gush Etzion on October 25.

The terrorist’s 28-year-old cousin was shot and killed when he attacked the security forces during the arrest operation, according to Tazpit news agency.

During the operation, now cleared for publication, a joint force comprised of Shin Bet, IDF and police operatives entered the Ahali Hebron hospital at night to arrest the attacker, Shalaldeh Azzam Izzat Sa’aban, age 20.

He himself was taken into custody by the forces and transferred to Shin Bet personnel for interrogation.

“It is important to emphasize the security establishment will not allow the existence of shelter for terrorists, no matter where they are,” the Shin Bet said in its statement.

Sa’aban was arrested after he threw rocks at an Israeli’s car and then stabbed him in the chest when he came to a stop and exited the vehicle.

The victim fired his gun at his attacker, who lives in the Arab village of Sair and belongs to a family of Hamas activists and operatives. Despite his own injuries, the terrorist fled the scene after the attack and succeeded in making his escape.

Sa’aban subsequently sought medical treatment at the Elhal Medical Center for the gunshot wound in Hebron, but was tracked down and ultimately identified by the Shin Bet.

 

 

Israeli Motorcyclist Wounded in Jerusalem Arab Stone-Throwing Attack

Monday, November 9th, 2015

An Israeli man in his 20s who was riding a motorcycle in Jerusalem was wounded by Arab terrorists Monday when they hurled rocks at him as he drove through the A-Tur neighborhood in the city.

The victim was treated for facial injuries by Magen David Adom personnel who arrived at the scene, before he was evacuated to Sha’are Zedek Medical Center.

The neighborhood has been a flashpoint for Arab violence more than once this year, and often since the start of the current wave of terror.

Police said two minors were arrested near Taibe in connection with the incident, but did not release details due to the ages of the attackers.
