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.

Jerusalem Light Rail Attacked

Saturday, March 26th, 2016

A wannabe Arab terrorist attacked the Jerusalem Light Rail in a northern neighborhood on Saturday night.

Security personnel caught the young attacker red-handed as he was hurling rocks at the train.

None of the passengers were physically injured. The attacker was arrested and taken into custody.

Numerous stone-throwing attacks on the Light Rail have cost the CityPass company millions of shekels since the train began serving the capital.

Nearly all of the attacks take place in the northern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Shuafat and the nearby mixed neighborhood of Beit Hanina, disrupting service for Arab commuters as well as those in neighboring Jewish areas.

Third Terror Suspect Nabbed in Sat. Nite Attack on Jewish Teens

Sunday, January 31st, 2016

A third suspect has been arrested in connection with Saturday night’s stabbing of a Jewish teen outside the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

The suspect was tracked down in a joint operation by Israel Police and Shin Bet intelligence operatives. He is a minor, age 15, and a resident of the northern Jerusalem Arab neighborhood of Shuafat.

One of the first two suspects, age 16, “understood that the police were after him and handed himself in to investigators,” according to police. The second, age 15, was tracked down within the hour after the attack.

The victim, a 17-year-old American who just made aliyah from Brooklyn, NY a month ago, was stabbed as he and a friend were leaving the Old City after prayers at the Western Wall.

His friend managed to evade the two Arab attackers – teens who were even younger than their intended victims – and race back to the Old City to alert police.

The two assailants were captured within an hour after the attack, while the injured victim was taken to Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center for emergency treatment. He still maintains he is determined to join the elite Sayeret Matkal combat unit when he turns age 18 and enters the IDF.
