Police to Close Some Old City Entrances to Jews on Shavuot Eve

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

The police will be prohibiting Jewish foot traffic to and from the Kotel via the Muslim Quarter from Shabbat evening until 1:30 AM on Sunday.

Last year, Arabs stabbed 2 Jewish boys that were on their way to the Kotel from Damascus Gate (Sha’ar Shechem) on Shavuot night .

As Ramadan coincides with Shavuot this month, police feel they will be unable to protect Jewish pedestrians, and it will be easier to simply not allow Jews into the area with numerous Muslims.

On Shavuot night, it is traditional to learn all night, and then walk to the Kotel for morning prayers at sunrise.

Israeli-Arab Terrorist Sentenced to 25 Years in Prison for Car-Ramming and Stabbing Attack

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

By Michael Bachner/TPS

Haifa (TPS) – An Israeli-Arab terrorist has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for carrying out a combined car-ramming and stabbing attack at the Gan Shmuel Junction near Hadera in October, 2015.

Alaa Ziwad, 20, from the town of Umm Al-Fahm, committed the terror attack after arriving in his car at the junction where he saw two IDF soldiers – a man and a woman – standing at a bus stop. He accelerated, ran them over, and then exited the vehicle with a knife and stabbed the female soldier and a 17-year-old girl. He also stabbed a man who stopped his vehicle to help the other victims before being neutralized and apprehended.

The 19-year-old female soldier was very seriously wounded in the attack after sustaining stab wounds to her face and upper body. The other victims were lightly to moderately wounded in the attack.

According to the indictment, Ziwad decided to commit the attack after similar attacks were perpetrated in October that killed and wounded many Israeli civilians “against the backdrop of battles and debates relating to the Temple Mount and the Al-Aqsa mosque.”

“The offenses are extremely severe, both on their own and in the specific context,” wrote the judges in the verdict. “The defendant, an Israeli citizen, decided to carry out a terror attack to kill Jews only because they are Jews. The charges require severe punishment in order to convey an unequivocal message that everyone participating in such offenses will find themselves behind bars for a long time.”

Ziwad was convicted at the Haifa District Court of four attempted murders after he admitted to the offenses. In addition to serving 25 years in prison, Ziwad will also pay compensation to each of his four victims, amounting in total to NIS 340,000 (almost 90,000 USD).

Zowad may also lose his Israeli citizenship.

Police Arrest Teen Stabbers of Elderly Jewish Women in Jerusalem

Monday, May 30th, 2016

Israel Police have cleared for release the details of the investigation into an attack by three teen terrorists on a group of elderly Jewish women in their 70s and 80s on May 10.

The women were strolling down a Jerusalem path at about 8:30 am to enjoy a sunny Israeli holiday when they were stabbed by the Arab teens. The attackers were caught and the details of their plot have now been revealed thanks to evidence gathered by the meticulous efforts of a joint operation by Shin Bet intelligence agents and Israel Police.

The two security forces tracked down the terrorists after they attacked the elderly women on Israel’s Memorial Day while they were resting on a bench along the path near the promenade in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood.

The three Arab terrorists are minors ages 16-17 from the neighborhood of Jabel Mukhaber, a hotbed of terrorism – and their attack was pre-planned, according to a statement released by police. Two of the suspects were arrested on May 19.

According to the police statement, the three teens decided to meet at a small supermarket in Jabel Mukaber, armed with knives and an axe which they had brought from home. The three then proceeded in the direction of the promenade where they waited for their Jewish victims. A third suspect left the scene after becoming afraid that the attack would lead to the demolition of his parents’ home.

Two of the terrorists targeted the group of five elderly women as they were walking along the path near the Shalom Forest, and prepared to attack and stab them. The women sat down on a bench along the path during their walk, passing the two Arab youths in the process. The two, both wearing masks, then attacked them from behind.

They then fled the scene in the direction of their village while throwing and hiding their weapons on the way. One made it home and the other took refuge in his school. “Later on, one of the attackers returned to retrieve the weapons and hid them in their village,” said the police statement.

The two communicated with the third via the WhatsApp social networking application and Facebook, elated with their success and determined to carry out another. But two of the young terrorists were almost immediately tracked down; after their arrest and interrogation they admitted to the third minor being part of their terror cell. His job had been to finish the job of attacking the elderly women in case the first two terrorists were killed before they could finish off their victims. Police arrested the third Arab minor shortly after.

It also emerged during the investigation that the mother of one of the suspects was arrested a week ago for attempting a stabbing terror attack at the Zeitim checkpoint entrance to Jerusalem. She failed in her mission.

“The police will continue to operate with determination to ensure the security of the capital’s residents,” said the local Jerusalem police commander.
