Children’s Weapons-Making’ Cell Arrested in Gush Etzion

Wednesday, December 14th, 2016

Israeli security forces have announced the arrest of a children’s weapons-making cell in Gush Etzion. For real.

The “children” are suspected of hurling firebombs (Molotov cocktails) at Israeli vehicles as they travel through the area, and manufacturing various improvised weapons.

Two underage suspects were arrested Monday during a joint raid carried out by Israel Police and forces from the Etzion Regional Brigade in the Arab village of Beit Fajar, located in the Gush Etzion region of Judea.

Both are suspected of firebombing the Jewish community of Migdal Oz and the Oz veGaon Nature Park.

During questioning the two culprits also confessed to belonging to a cell that produces other improvised weapons.

On Wednesday evening, police arrested two additional suspects, and discovered improvised weapons parts, springs, various purchased items and bullets to create makeshift weapons.

The investigation into the four young suspects is continuing, even as it is being added to the dozens of cases of new and varied types of illegal weapons being created in Arab villages in Judea and Samaria.

“Israeli Police will continue its determined, uncompromising struggle to reduce the number of illegally held weapons,” said the spokesperson for the Southern Jerusalem District Police. “We will work tirelessly in cooperation with all relevant forces and agencies to do so.”

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 terrorists hurled stones at an Israeli public bus Thursday evening as it traveled in the Binyamin region, between the Arab towns of Hizme and Anatot.

No physical injuries were reported by Hatzolah of the Binyamin region in any of the attacks, but there were no details regarding damage to the vehicles.

About two hours earlier, a group of 10 Arab terrorists hurled rocks at Israeli security forces, stationed in an outpost at Neve Ta’alach. No injuries were reported in the attack. The troops used routine mob dispersal methods to deal with the attackers.

At around the same time, a separate group of attackers threw stones at IDF soldiers at an observation outpost north of the Jewish community of Ofra. No injuries were reported in that attack, which took place close to the site where a 23-year-old terrorist attempted to knife soldiers earlier in the day. He failed in his attempt to murder Israelis, and instead was himself shot and killed.
