One of the soldiers was hit in the head by a boulder, his helmet damaged in the process. As a result, the soldier suffered a serious head injury. He was evacuated to a Jerusalem hospital.

Arab Terrorist Caught ‘Red-Handed’ in Attack on Jerusalem Light Rail

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

Israel Police arrested an Arab terrorist Wednesday night in connection with a stoning attack on the Jerusalem Light Rail as it passed through the northern neighborhood of Shuafat in the capital.

The suspect is about 17 and a half years old, according to Israel Police. He was taken to a police precinct for questioning.

A convicted terrorist can face a penalty for stoning a moving vehicle in Israel that can range from months to years in prison, along with a hefty fine. The penal code was amended last year to reflect the lethal nature of such attacks.

The windshield of the first car in the Light Rail train was smashed by the rocks thrown by the terrorist. The perpetrator was caught immediately following the attack by police at the scene.

Hundreds of thousands of shekels — if not millions — have been spent on repairs to the Light Rail cars taken out of service due to the damage inflicted by stone-throwing, firebombing Arab terrorists from Shuafat.

The attacks are not only senseless in destroying transportation for their fellow residents, but they also are self-destructive in eliminating an efficient and low-cost means for Arab commuters to reach their jobs in the center of Jerusalem, where most enjoy well-paying salaries and generous benefits.

Jerusalem Light Rail Attacked in Shuafat

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

The Jerusalem Light Rail train was attacked by stone-throwing Arabs Tuesday night when it arrived in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

None of the passengers on the train were physically injured, but the windshield of the lead car was damaged.

The neighborhood has been the source of countless attacks on the Light Rail over the past two years, despite the service it provides to local Arab commuters in the capital.

Millions of shekels have been spent on repairs to cars that have had to be taken out of service due to stoning attacks by terrorists in the Arab neighborhood.

Border Guard Arrest Suspect Armed with Knife at Shuafat Check Post

Sunday, August 28th, 2016

A suspect, 18, who arrived at the Shuafat refugee camp check post on his way to enter eastern Jerusalem was arrested after a search through his bag revealed a knife that had been wrapped in order to conceal it. Border Guard police who were alerted neutralized the suspect, took his knife and arrested him for interrogation.

The Shuafat refugee camp was established by king Hussein of Jordan in 1965 to house Arabs whose families had come from Jerusalem, Lydda, Jaffa and Ramleh areas, after the Mascar refugee camp in the Jewish quarter of the Old City had been closed. Coming into Jerusalem from the Shufat refugee camp the terrorist could find targets for stabbing in the nearby Jewish neighborhoods of Pisgat Ze’ev, French Hill, and Ramat Shlomo.
