Terrorist Convicted in 2014 Murder of IDF Soldier Almog Shiloni, z’l

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

An Arab terrorist from Shechem was convicted Wednesday of the November 2014 murder of an IDF soldier outside the Hagana train station in Tel Aviv.

The terrorist, Nur al-Din Abu Hashayeh, was convicted in Tel Aviv District Court of murdering 20-year-old Almog Shiloni, according to Israel Radio.

Hashayeh, age 18 at the time of the murder, illegally entered sovereign Israeli territory the day before he carried out the attack.

Under interrogation he told investigators he had hoped to be killed by security personnel during the attack, thereby becoming a “martyr.” In this way he would earn a generous monthly salary for his family from the Palestinian Authority government and also would gain eternal fame as well.

Nevertheless, the killer has likely nevertheless succeeded in gaining at least a somewhat generous monthly stipend for his family from the Ramallah government, which pays the families of convicted Arab terrorists imprisoned in Israel on a scale rated in accordance with the severity of the attack, the number of victims and length of sentence.

In this case, Hashayeh caught the young soldier by surprise and stabbed him in the stomach. As he fell to the ground and tried to defend himself with his legs, the terrorist stabbed him several more times while trying to grab his M-16 assault rifle and attack nearby bystanders.

Israelis who saw the attack rushed over and hit the terrorist, who the fled, tossing away his knife on the way.

Although the homes of many such terrorists have been demolished during the current wave of terror, Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled last December that “too much time had passed” for demolition to be carried out as a deterrent measure in this case.

Israel Demolishes Home of Henkins’ Hamas Killer

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

IDF soldiers and engineers demolished the family home of Hamas operative Zir Ziyad Jamal Amar on Tuesday.

The family home of Rajeb Ahmed Mohammed Aliwa, the mastermind behind the attack, has already been demolished.

Amar was one of several terrorists in the Hamas cell responsible for the murder of Neria residents Rabbi Eitam and Na’ama Henkin as they traveled a road in Samaria last October.

The couple was shot to death before the horrified eyes of their four children while driving the road between the Jewish communities of Elon Moreh and Itamar.

The children, though badly traumatized, were miraculously not physically harmed.

Israeli security forces hunted down the terrorists involved in the attack – a Hamas cell from the Shechem area – and captured them several days later.

A fund has been set up for the future care of the four orphans who survived the attack.
