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.

IDF Eliminates Road Terrorist in Judea

Monday, July 14th, 2014

IDF troops eliminated a Palestinian Arab road terrorist in Judea early Monday, identified by the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency as 22-year-old Munir Ahmed Badarin.

The attacker was one of a gang of three terrorists hurling firebombs and sharp rocks and cinder blocks at Israeli motorists as they passed the ambush site.

The masked attackers were waiting to attack Israelis along the southern end of Route 60, just west of the Arab village of Samua, south of Hebron and slightly north of the south Hebron Hills community of Yatir.

IDF soldiers who spotted them first fired warning shots in the air in an attempt to stop them, but when they continued attacking motorists, fired directly at the terrorists.

Numerous Israelis have been wounded and murdered in road terror attacks over the past several years.

Arabs hurling rocks, cinder blocks and firebombs at the windows and windshields of vehicles intend to kill those at who they aim. By smashing the glass, a driver’s attention is diverted from the road.

Often the car crashes as a result in addition to whatever injuries are caused by the flying glass. If the car crashes or is brought to a stop by other means, the terrorists then descend on the vehicle – and are then able to finish off their victims.

In several past instances – such as that which took the life of Kiryat Arba resident Asher Palmer and his baby son Yonatan — police first believed vehicles crashed due to accidents rather than terror attacks. It was only through the persistence of area residents that police investigated further, and realized that in fact, the “accident” was caused by a terror attack.

On Monday, the IDF ordered a military police investigation into the shooting death of the road terrorist and the actions of his two accomplices who were attempting to kill Israelis near Samua.

Israeli Security Cabinet: ‘Operation Brother’s Keeper’ Continues ‘Full Throttle’

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Israel’s Security Cabinet decided Wednesday night to continue Operation Brother’s Keeper at “full throttle” until three kidnapped Israeli teens are found and returned home.

The holy Islamic month of Ramadan begins this coming Saturday; during this period, observant Muslims traditionally fast during the daylight hours, abstaining from food and drink each day until after sundown. It is also time in which tensions usually rise between Arabs and Jews and often there is a corresponding increase in the number of terrorist and other attacks.

Earlier this week there was some discussion over whether Israel had reached the lion’s share of its secondary goals in the operation, in neutralizing the presence of the Hamas terrorist organization in Judea and Samaria. More than 360 arrests have been made thus far, with at least 250 of those taken into custody claiming membership in Hamas.

But with the primary goal of finding the kidnap victims still ‘up front and center,’ the security cabinet decided to move forward with the operation, albeit with due consideration for the local PA Arab population, given the holiday circumstances.

IDF soldiers are still searching daily and overnight throughout the hills of Judea and Samaria Eyal Yifrach, 19, Naftali Frenkel, 16 and Gilad Sha’ar, 16. The three boys were abducted from Gush Etzion by Arab terrorists on June 12 as they were hitchhiking home for the Sabbath from yeshiva.

In numerous homes and buildings, they have come across illegal weapons caches, hidden tunnels, previously undiscovered secret chambers, caves and cisterns whose presence was cleverly concealed by brush, rocks and in some cases even what appeared to be “ancient” agricultural terraces.

Overnight Wednesday IDF troops arrested a total of 10 Palestinian Authority fugitives during operations, including a terrorist who was tracked down near the southern Hevron Hills village of Samu’a but who fled to evade arrest. When warning shots did not stop him, IDF troops shot him instead, seriously wounding the fugitive. He was taken to an Israeli medical center for treatment, and will later be questioned by security personnel. A terrorist wounded while rioting against IDF soldiers during arrest operations several days ago in Ramallah also died last night.
