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.

2 Women Injured in Arab Rock Attack

Monday, January 12th, 2015

Two Israeli women were taken to the hospital after Arabs threw a rock at their car as they were driving on Road 60. The rock smashed through their windshield.

The attack happened around 5 PM in the Binyamin area.

The two managed to get to Shiloh where they were treated by emergency personnel before being taken to the hospital.

One woman had a head injury and the other was hit in the stomach.

Both women were listed as lightly injured.

Teen Terrorist in Court for Wounding Baby

Friday, December 19th, 2014

A Jerusalem court has brought charges against a teenage terrorist who wounded a young baby last week. The 16-year-old attacker, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is an Arab resident of the city.

He was charged with hurling a brick at a bus last Sunday. The bus was heading for the Western Wall, a Jewish holy site.

Several passengers were hit with shattered glass in the attack, and a baby suffered cuts to his head.

Arab children and teens living in Jerusalem have been involved in several recent attacks. This week, a group of Arab boys ages just 10 to 12 attacked a civilian bus, causing damage but no injuries.

The involvement of Arab children in terrorism in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gaza is a phenomenon that dates back generations. Terrorist groups in the region have been taken to task by Amnesty International, the Coalition to Stop the Use of Child Soldiers, and others for making cynical use of teenagers and young children to attack Jewish civilians.

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.

Another Day, Another Arab Riot

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Jerusalem Arabs hurled rocks at Israel Police on Sunday (Nov. 9) in the capital’s eastern neighborhood of Issawiya.

Masked Arab men gathered in a mob rioted during the afternoon hours to clash with Israeli security forces.

Police used riot control measures to disperse the mob.

More than 1200 police officers were deployed in Arab villages, towns and cities on Sunday, and Israel Police operated on high alert throughout the country.

Clashes also continued between Arab residents of Kfar Qana and Israel Police, with protesters waving Palestinian Authority flags while blocking entrance and access road to the town, setting tires ablaze and hurling stones at police. At least 20 rioters were arrested, including eight minors.

Riots were also reported in Kafr Qasim, and at a police station in Sha’ab, the Israeli flag was removed and replaced by that of the Palestinian Authority.

Israel Police are investigating the incident.

A number of highways were temporarily closed due to rocks, flaming tires or attacks along the roads, including Routes 65, 444 and 754. Two passengers were wounded on an Egged bus traveling from Hadera to the Galilee on Route 65 when the vehicle came under attack from Arabs hurling rocks. Police searched for the attackers but have not yet made an arrests.

Some 30 Arabs placed rocks and blazing tires on Route 754 near Nazareth, Ynet reported, forcing authorities to temporarily close the road in order to clear the obstacles.

Blazing tires created more obstacles on Route 444 near the Taibe Bridge in the “Triangle” area. One arrest was reported by police, as security personnel dispersed rioters.

The outskirts of Moshav Mei Ami were set ablaze by an Arab firebombing (Molotov cocktail). Police stationed in the Arab city of Umm al-Fahm launched an investigation into the incident.

The clashes followed protests by university students in Tel Aviv and Haifa over the death of an armed terrorist who threatened police in a vehicle late last week.

The terrorist, a 22-year-old Israeli Arab, attempted to attack police officers with a knife while they sat in their vehicle, slamming his weapon on the window.

When he was some distance from the vehicle, one of the police officers shot and killed him.
