Israeli Driver Wounded in Shooting Attack Near Ofarim

Monday, December 19th, 2016

Arab terrorists opened fire at an Israeli driver at approximately 1 AM on Monday morning as he traveled on the road near the Shuqba Junction to Halamish (Neve Tzuf). The site is north of Ramallah and just south of the community of Beit Aryeh and Ofarim.

The car was hit multiple times by bullets from a passing car, and the driver was lightly wounded in the face from the broken glass and possibly the bullet too.

Israeli soldiers set out in search of the attackers and found an abandoned vehicle in the field, and checked it to see if it had been used by the terrorists.

The victim, in his twenties, was treated at the scene before being evacuated by Magen David Adom medics to Tel Hashomer Medical Center with shrapnel wounds to the upper lip area and the cheek, Hatzolah of Judea and Samaria reported.

Last week, the car of a women from Neve Tzuf and her two children were shot at by terrorists in this same general area. No one was injured in that attack, but the car had multiple bullet holes in it.

On Sunday morning, the Israeli government approved a budget for 113 more bulletproof buses to be added to the nation’s fleet.

The proposal advanced by Likud Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz adds the buses over the next four years to the school and civilian bus lines in Judea and Samaria.

Shooting attack in Malmo, Sweden

Monday, September 26th, 2016

At least four people were wounded and possibly more in a shooting spree by one or more gunmen in the Swedish city of Malmo on Sunday evening at around 7 pm local time. The attacker/s were still at large, hours later.

According to a report by the Expressen newspaper, several shooters on motor scooters opened fire on a car they were chasing through a neighborhood in the southern sector of the city. Other local media described “a man in an Audi” who opened fire on a crowd at a local football “derby.”

At least 20 gunshots were heard by local eyewitnesses who spoke with media. Police said the “shooter” is still at large, and verified the number of injured but did not confirm other details.

Very little was clear even hours after the event, and the operation was still ongoing, according to police.

Jews have been abandoning the city over the past few decades as it becomes more unwelcoming and anti-Semitic. Italian journalist wrote in a piece earlier this year for Israel National News: In the seventies, the community had more than 2,000 members: today there are less than 500. The others left for Stockholm or for Israel. The Simon Wiesenthal Center issued a warning to all Jews who visit Malmo, “Hide public religious signs and do not speak Hebrew.”

Israeli UN Ambassador Pressured Ban Ki-moon Into Condemning Sarona Center Terror Attack in Tel Aviv

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the Palestinian Authority Arab attack Wednesday night in Tel Aviv that left four dead and four others seriously injured.

But that vigorous condemnation was not issued until after Israel’s UN Ambassador, Danny Danon, stood up and demanded the international community respond to terror attacks in the Jewish State “the same way attacks are treated in Paris and Istanbul.”

Two Arab terrorists from the sprawling village of Yatta, a suburb of Hebron in the southern Hebron Hills, opened fire with submachine guns in the popular upscale Sarona Center.

Ban conveyed his condolences to the families of the victims and the Government of Israel. “There is no justification for terrorism nor for the glorification of those who commit such heinous acts,” Ban underscored, adding that he was shocked that the leaders of Hamas have chosen to welcome this attack and some to celebrate it.

Ban called upon the Palestinian Authority leadership “to live up to their responsibility to stand firmly against violence and the incitement that fuels it.”

But it appears that Ban’s condemnation may not have been a spontaneous response to terror, but rather a response to pressure by Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon.

It was Israel’s UN representative who demanded that the international body condemn the attack.

Immediately following the shooting, Danon called on the UN Secretary-General and the Security Council to condemn Palestinian Authority terrorism.

“Today’s attack is sad proof that when the international community refuses to condemn terrorist attacks against Israelis, the next one to come is only a matter of time,” Danon said in a statement to the UN.

Terror in Tel Aviv must receive the same response (from the international community) as terror in Paris, and terror in Istanbul,” he said.

“I urge the Security Council and the UN Secretary-General to unequivocally condemn this murderous terror attack and to demand that the Palestinian Authority leadership once and for all put an end to the hate speech that incites terrorism.”

Danon expressed his condolences to the families of the murdered and wished the injured a speedy recovery. “Israel stands by your side in this difficult period. Your pain is the pain of us all.” he said.

Social workers from the city’s department of social services were at the family home on Thursday morning to render whatever assistance is needed, the spokesperson said. Funeral details have yet to be set.

“We will provide as much help as we can to the family,” said Ashkelon Mayor Itamar Shimoni. “May they know no more sorrow, and may G-d avenge the blood of the victims of this shooting attack. We all send our best wishes for a speedy recovery to the injured.”

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.

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

Arab terrorists opened fire at Israeli vehicles as they traveled in Samaria near the Jewish community of Beit El, near the Palestinian Authority capital city of Ramallah.

Israeli security forces were called to the site where terrorist snipers were ambushing Israeli drivers from the side of the road. Miraculously, no one was shot directly, although a vehicle was damaged.

Security personnel told TPS at least one driver managed to flee an attack without injury and reported it to nearby soldiers before continuing on her way to the nearby Jewish community of Kida.

The woman’s vehicle was confirmed to have been hit by at least two bullets — the bullet holes were visible — although the vehicle itself was still able to be driven.

IDF soldiers fanned out across the area of the attack to hunt for the shooter.
