Monday, August 15th, 2016

IDF engineers, backed by security and other Israeli forces demolished the home of Muhammad Taraiyre, in accordance with Israeli policy, which mandated the destruction of the family home of any Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist who murders an Israeli.

The eighth grader was stabbed dozens of times on the morning after having participated in a dance event organized by the local dance arts center in Kiryat Arba. Her bedroom was covered in blood by the time the security team reached her, witnesses said.

She passed away a few hours after the attack in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, and was laid to rest in the ancient Jewish cemetery in Hebron.

One of the Rapid Response Team security personnel who raced to the scene when the infiltrator’s presence was detected was also critically injured at the scene. Yehoshua Gilboa is a member of a famiy that has already lost two sons to terrorism, and is a volunteer with the Kiryat Arba security team.

Shuki Gilboa was stabbed by the attacker, and also sustained a bullet wound as the result of friendly fire during the clash with the terrorist. He ultimately lost the sight in his right eye as a result of the battle but doctors at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center were able to save his life.

Around 4:40 AM, Wednesday morning, the IDF noted an infiltration attempt into the community of Yitzhar in the Shomron, according to a TPS/Tazput report. Residents were told to stay indoors.

Emergency security forces were called out, and a chase began after a female terrorist who was trying to sneak into the town as everyone slept.

The 15-year-old terrorist, armed with a knife and a firebomb, was from the nearby village.

There were no injuries to the residents or security forces.

Gazan’s Growing Angry at Hamas

Friday, August 15th, 2014

Gazans are beginning to voice their displeasure at Hamas for not stopping the war against Israel earlier, thus causing needless destruction and death in Gaza, according to a Makor Rishon report. But they are doing it carefully, so that Hamas doesn’t execute them too, as it did others who complained.

Gazans are upset that Hamas placed and fired rockets near their homes, causing their homes to be destroyed by the IDF, while those same rockets did minimal to no damage to Israel in return.

Hamaas could have accepted the cease fire when there were only 200 Gazans dead, one Gazan complained, but instead chose to continue to attack Israel, raising the number of dead to almost 2000.

Gazan sources are saying that Egypt plans to allow 5000 PA security forces into Gaza as part of the rehabilitation of Gaza and to handle the border crossings as well.

But some Gazans believe those same PA security forces may also be meant to help Gaza’s citizens resist and ultimately collapse Hamas.

The last time there were PA forces in Gaza was in 2007, when Hamas slaughtered the rival Fatah members, threw their bodies off rooftops, and just generally dismembered them as part of Hamas’s takeover of the Gaza Strip.

Meanwhile, Qatar wants to transfer millions of dollars directly to Hamas.

Israel for its part won’t allow Qatari money to be delivered directly to Hamas, but rather it will go through a third party, be it a different Arab state such as Jordan or Egypt, or an international body.

One thing to watch with interest, is the possibly upcoming Palestinian Authority elections sometime within a year.

That’s where we’ll really see if the Gazans are actually upset with Hamas, or if it’s all talk.

Within the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria, Hamas is rapidly growing in popularity.

IDF Troops Ignore Supreme Court, Demolish Jewish Homes in Gush Etzion

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

IDF commanders dispatched with legal niceties Wednesday and ordered the demolition of seven homes and a kindergarten in the Jewish community of Ma’aleh Rehava’am without waiting for the Supreme Court to rule on the matter.

An IDF legal adviser to the Civil Administration of Judea and Samaria informed Etzion Brigade Colonel Amit Yamin at midday he need not wait to confirm a Supreme Court restraining order against the demolitions in Gush Etzion.  Once Yamin gave the order, security forces moved fast and finished the demolitions before the Court had issued a restraining order.

Early Wednesday, David Perl, head of the Gush Etzion Residents’ Council said that the Court had ordered a stay against the demolitions early in the morning after residents had submitted evidence of having purchased the land on which their homes were built. Those documents formed the basis for the appeal that is currently pending.

A spokesperson for the Supreme Court denied the claim, however, when asked for clarification by the IDF.

As a result, the IDF commander was told by legal counsel not to wait for confirmation. Rather, he was told to simply go ahead and destroy seven private homes and a kindergarten at Ma’ale Rehavam, according to a reporter from the Tazpit news agency on site. The AFP news agency reported that an additional three uninhabited structures were also destroyed.

The IDF officer proceeded to order his troops to demolish the buildings, leaving seven families with children homeless. Hundreds of security forces are on site at the community, where 34 families have built their homes.

“The demolition of homes is an expression of weakness and frailty of our hold in Israel,” Perl said in a statement following the destruction. “But we are not deterred and will not be silent We will continue to build and expand Gush Etzion roots everywhere. We came to this country to build and be built. The time has come to announce to the world our sovereignty over this land.”

Two more Jewish communities, both in Samaria, are slated for similar actions by the government wrecking crews this week: Ramat Gilad near Shechem (Nablus) and in Givat Asaf in the Binyamin region.

Similar demolition orders are rarely issued, let alone carried out against the thousands of illegally-constructed Bedouin and Arab structures dotting the Israeli landscape within the 1949 Armistice lines (known as the “pre-1967 lines.) They are never carried out against the hundreds of thousands carpeting the hillsides in the territory of Area C.
