Israeli Soldiers Capture 3 Terror Fugitives, Find Weaponry

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Israeli security personnel captured three wanted terror suspects in the wee hours of Monday morning (May 2).

The arrests took place during operations in Judea and Samaria.

One of the suspects was taken into custody during an operation in the Arab village of Ein Umm a-Shrait, south of Ramallah in the Palestinian Authority-controlled area of Samaria.

A second fugitive was captured in the Arab town of Tzurif in Judea, southwest of the Jewish town of Bat Ayin. Tzurif is known as a Hamas terrorist stronghold.

The third suspect was arrested in the ancient Judean city of Hebron, whose population is today divided between Arabs and Jews, and where several terrorist groups maintain their regional headquarters.

All three suspects were transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

In addition, during the night, IDF soldiers from the Kefir Brigade found weaponry near the Qalandiya crossing. The gun and its related hardware were turned over to security personnel for investigation.

Mazal Tov: New Jewish Settlement in Samaria — Evyatar

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

A group of some 50 Jewish families on Monday launched a new community in Israel, near the Tapuach junction in Samaria. The new community was named Evyatar, in memory of Evyatar Borowski HY”D, a gifted artist who was stabbed to death by an Arab near Tapuach junction in 2013. The settlement is intended as a call to the Netanyahu government to go back to starting new Jewish villages and towns in Judea and Samaria.

The Army approved the overnight stay of the settlers of Evyatar, who agreed to be evacuated the next day, with a commitment to come back in the near future.

Immediately following the murder, then Samaria Council Head Gershon Mesika moved his office to the site, only to be removed by order of the Defense Minister. The site continued to be visited by Israelis who cherished the memory of Borowski, who was in his early 30s when he was murdered, leaving a wife and five children.

Shmuel Gazit, member of the new settlement, told Srugim the government has been enforcing a harsh policy of settlement freezing which threatens the future of Jewish life in the region. The new settlement will serve as a battering ram against this policy and help break through the blockade imposed on Judea and Samaria.

The year 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of Jewish settlements in Samaria. The ceremony at Evyatar Monday night included Yossi Dagan, the new head of the Council, Chief Rabbi of Samaria Rav Elyakim Levanon, and Rabbi David Dudkevitz.

“We call on the lovers of Israel to come and support our settlement,” Gazit said, adding, “We aspire to reach the stage where thousands of men, women and children will tell the Israeli government, We’ll stay here until you approve erecting a new settlement. Such a national reawakening will have the power to break through the existing blockade around Judea and Samaria, leading to a new wave of settlements across the region.”

Cab Driver Charged With Bringing Hadar Cohen’s Killers to Jerusalem

Saturday, April 16th, 2016

A 57-year-old resident of the Wadi Joz neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem has been charged with causing the death of Border Guard policewoman Hadar Cohen, hy’d, on February 3.

Hamees Salaimeh, a cab driver, was charged with causing Cohen’s death through negligence by transporting the three terrorists to the scene of the shooting and stabbing attack at the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

The homes of Ahmad Naj’ah Ismail Netzar, Muhmad Ahmad Muhmad Kamil and Ammad Naj’ah Abd Aliltif Abu Alrov, all three located in the Samaria Arab village of Qabatiya, were subsequently demolished.

The indictment filed at the Jerusalem District Court reveals Salaimeh was charged because he drove the three into the city even though they had no permits to be in Israel. All three were residents of Jenin, in Samaria.

According to the court documents, Salaimeh picked up the trio at the security barrier at A-Ram, north of Jerusalem. He then drove them to the Jerusalem neighborhood of Issawiyeh, inside the city limits.

A second Border Guard policewoman was badly wounded, but survived the attack and insisted on leaving her hospital bed long enough to attend her friend’s funeral the next day.

Israeli Security Forces Capture Hamas Terrorists in Judea

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

IDF and Border Guard Police captured eight wanted terror suspects late Saturday and early Sunday in Samaria and Judea.

One of the suspects was arrested in a Samaria operation in Jenin, and a second was arrested in Jelazoun, both wanted for violence against civilians and security personnel.

In Judea, two brothers, both wanted suspects were captured in Beit Fajar, north of Kiryat Arba. Two more suspects were arrested in the city Hebron, next to Kiryat Arba, in connection with activities as operatives in the Hamas terror organization.

In the Palestinian Authority village of Samua, in the South Hebron Hills, two more suspects were also captured, including one who is also accused of being a Hamas operative.

All of the suspects were transferred to the Israel Security Agency Shin Bet security personnel for interrogation.

Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist group has increasingly built up a presence in Judea and Samaria in hopes of eventually seizing control of these regions as well.

The IDF and Shin Bet domestic intelligence agency has tracked down and dismantled numerous budding Hamas regional headquarters set-ups and at least two established semi-official shadow government networks in Qalkilya and in Shechem, both in Samaria.
