Update: Terrorist Killed after Stabbing IDF Soldier near Hebron

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

An Arab terrorist stabbed an IDF soldier at the Al-Fawwar junction near Kiryat Arab Wednesday morning on the road to Beit Haggai in the Judean hills, and the attacker was shot and later died.

The terrorist was driving on the road where soldiers were stationed near Beit Haggai, and stopped his vehicle to get out and attack the soldier, stabbing him in the throat.

He was shot by other IDF soldiers at the guard post. The 20-year-old terrorist from the Arab village of Al-Fawwar was seriously wounded and was evacuated to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, where he later died.

The soldier, age 20, was treated at the scene before being rushed, still fully conscious, to Sha’are Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. He is listed in serious condition.

Arab Terrorist Shot When He Tried to Knife Israeli Soldier

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

IDF soldiers shot and killed an Arab terrorist who tried to murder one of the troops on Monday afternoon at the Samaria junction near the Arab village of Huwara, south of the city of Shechem (Nablus).

The attacker drew a knife, approached the troops stationed at the junction and attempted to stab one of the soldiers, according to a statement by the IDF.

“The force responded to the immediate threat and fired at the suspect, resulting in his death,” the statement said.

Last month, Arab terrorists shot at an Israeli vehicle on the road near the Huwara checkpoint, close to Shechem. The car was traveling near the Jewish community of Tapuach at the time.

In September, a Jewish woman was shot in a terror attack near the same area.

The Tomb of the Biblical Patriarch Joseph is located in the ancient holy city of Shechem. Although the city is now under Arab control, the internationally-recognized Oslo Accords mandate free access to the site by Israeli Jews due to its sanctity in both Judaism and Islam.

Nevertheless, any Jew who approaches the site without first arranging an Israeli military escort does so at the risk of his life, as has been repeatedly made clear in numerous tragedies.

Even with the escort of the IDF, it is not also certain that Palestinian Authority Arabs will respect the international mandate. The convoy in which Israel Chief Sephardic Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef was traveling was attacked by PA Arabs, who threw stones at the vehicles as they drove towards the site. Furthermore, following the visit by the chief rabbi, the Tomb was once again burned down by the enraged Arabs.

Critically Wounded Police Officer Resumes Duty 5 Months Later, Offers Prayer of Thanks at Western Wall

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

A critically injured Border Guard Police officer has returned to duty after being stabbed by a Palestinian Authority terrorist in Jerusalem.

Officer Raz Bibi returned to active service on Monday, five months after he nearly lost his life in the terror attack at the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem. Just 20 years old, he went back to the Old City — the place where he was attacked — to offer prayers of gratitude at the Western Wall for his miraculous recovery.

Upon his arrival at the Western Wall Plaza, the officer found a touching surprise, when the members of his unit greeted him with cheers and applause for his bravery.

Just before he lost consciousness on that terrible day five months ago, the courageous officer had managed to shoot and kill the vicious terrorist who stabbed him.

“I was very happy to see this special military unit that has stood by the door at the hospital since [Bibi] was wounded, and supported him and prayed for his recovery together with all the people of Israel,” said Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, the rabbi of the Western Wall.

“Now [the unit] is once again with him, this time with thanks for the great miracle that happened to him, and his surprising recovery against all the predictions,” the rabbi told the soldiers who were gathered around the officer.

Jew Rams Terrorist! [video]

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

Former head of the Samaria regional council, Gershon Mesika purposely rammed his car into an Arab woman at the Hativa square in the Shomron, near the IDF Shomron Brigade headquarters, just after 9 AM on Sunday.

The Arab woman had pulled out a knife and was chasing after a Jewish girl to stab her.

The quick thinking driver rammed his car into the terrorist, damaging his car in the process.

A civilian (possibly Gershon Mesika) and nearby IDF soldiers then opened fire on the terrorist.

No civilians were injured in the attack, though Mesika was lightly bruised from the crash.

Initial reports say the terrorist is either dead or seriously wounded.

Arab Terror Attacks Aimed at IDF, Light Rail Train

Friday, November 13th, 2015

Arabs attacked a Light Rail train Thursday night in northern Jerusalem and hurled rocks at Israeli security personnel early Friday in Samaria.

Riots were reported early Friday as Palestinian Authority Arabs clashed with Israeli military forces in Al-Bireh, which is adjacent to Ramallah in Samaria, about 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) north of Jerusalem.

The attackers threw stones at the IDF soldiers, according to local sources.

Elsewhere in related security news, Arab attackers threw stones Thursday night at a Light Rail train as it traveled through the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat.

None of the passengers were physically injured in the attack, but at least one of the cars was damaged and was taken out of service.

On Tuesday, two Arab children stabbed a 25-year-old guard aboard a Jerusalem Light Rail train in a terror attack.

The guard was slightly wounded but shot the 11-year-old who had stabbed him, while passengers restrained the other young terrorist until police arrived.

“I wanted to kill Jews to avenge my cousin Muhammad who was murdered at Damascus Gate,” one of the two young terrorists later confessed to police. He explained that he wanted to avenge the death of his cousin, who was shot and killed last month after stabbing two police officers in Jerusalem.

The two youngsters, 14-year-old Muawiyyeh Alkam and 11-year-old Ali Alkam are both residents of Shuafat. They were seen on CCTV security footage from their attack carefully observing their target on the train in nearby Pisgat Ze’ev and waiting until the guard was distracted to draw their knives and attack.

Alkam, age 11, is hospitalized in good condition at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. Remand for his 14-year-old cousin has been extended for another week by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court, pending presentation of evidence by police for arraignment and indictment.
