5 Suspects Arrested in Qabatiya, Damascus Gate Killers’ Home Village

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

Israeli security forces arrested five terror suspects Wednesday night in the Samaria village of Qabatiya, home to two of the three Damascus Gate killers.

The arrests came as part of the Shin Bet investigation into the terror attack earlier in the day at the entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

The third terrorist in the cell who murdered a Border Guard Policewoman and wounded two others was a resident of nearby Jenin.

Shin Bet security personnel were searching for the driver who brought the terrorists to Jerusalem from the village, and other accessories who aided the attackers.

IDF soldiers also searched Qabatiya and Jenin for weapons and other contraband overnight Wednesday.

In addition, IDF engineers and Civil Administration officials mapped out the homes of the three terrorists overnight in preparation for demolition.

The slain officer, Hadar Cohen, hy’d, is to be laid to rest in a ceremony Thursday afternoon. The two policewomen who were also wounded in the attack – one very seriously – are hospitalized at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center.

Israeli Dragnet Surrounds Ramallah After Terror Attack by PA Police Officer

Monday, February 1st, 2016

Israeli security teams surrounded Ramallah overnight; according to a local source, only residents who could prove their status were allowed in and out of the city.

The soldiers sealed off the Palestinian Authority capital following the shooting of three Israeli soldiers by a PA police officer.

The dragnet came in response to an attack on Israeli soldiers earlier in the day by one of the members of the personal security team for Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas.

The officer drove up from Ramallah to the IDF checkpoint next to the Jewish community of Beit El. He got out of his car holding a handgun and shot three Israeli soldiers at point-blank range, seriously wounding two and a third less severely. Other soldiers immediately returned fire and killed the terrorist on site.

Less than two hours later, Arab terrorists attacked Israeli vehicles driving along Highway 443 – the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway – next to the Dor Alon gas station on the road. Although stone-throwing attacks on moving vehicles can be and have often been deadly, in this case no Israelis were injured.

Also Sunday evening, a young Arab was arrested after soldiers noticed he was acting in a suspicious manner near the Gush Etzion Junction. The wannabe jihadist was armed a heavy iron chisel, which he later confessed he was preparing to use in an attack on Israelis.

Ahmed Tobah, 19, was spotted by IDF soldiers deployed in the area as he tried to penetrate the Samaria community’s security fence.

When soldiers approached to arrest him, the would-be infiltrator tried to stab them instead – and was immediately shot and killed on site. Tobah was allegedly a Palestinian Authority resident living in the Tulkarem area in Samaria.
