Report: Ashkelon Terrorist Was ISIS Supporter

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

A terrorist who stabbed a soldier in Ashkelon earlier this month turns out to have been a Sudani supporter of Da’esh (ISIS).

Kamal Aysh Aziz Hassan Mohammed, 32, was a Sudanese citizen who infiltrated into Israel a number of years ago, according to the findings of a joint investigation by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Israel Police Southern District.

Among other factors, the investigation revealed the attacker was a devout Muslim and that his mobile phone contained photos of various Da’esh (ISIS) operatives from around the world. His attack that day apparently was fueled by inspiration from Da’esh.

On February 7, Mohammed stabbed an IDF soldier at the intersection of Ben Gurion Boulevard and British Jewry in Ashkelon.

After the attack, Mohammed escaped, fleeing into a residential neighborhood.

A second soldier saw the stabbing and immediately ran after the suspect, who fled, but was chased down and then shot by his pursuer who had quickly closed the distance and neutralized him.

Mohammed was seriously wounded in the incident, and later died of his wounds at Ashkelon’s Barzilai Medical Center.

It turns out he had a record of violent crimes in Israel, separate and apart from whatever he might have done in his country of origin before infiltrating the Jewish State.

Mohammed was arrested in 2009 on suspicion of involvement in violent crimes; he also escaped from the Holon facility in 2014 and since that time has lived in Ashdod and Ashkelon. It seems that the attack was inspired by the Da’esh terror organization.

The findings were released as part of the joint investigation by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and the southern district Israel Police.

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

An IDF Reserve Officer Eliav Gelman hy”d has succumbed to the grievous wounds he suffered after fighting off an Arab terrorist during an attack Wednesday at the Gush Etzion Junction.

Gelman was targeted by the terrorist but managed to pull out his pistol to defend himself during the attack, which took place at a hitchhiking post at the Gush Etzion Junction, about 15 minutes south of Jerusalem.

A 31-year-old resident of the Jewish community of Carmei Tzur — which he helped to build — Gelman grew up in the Gush Etzion town of Kiryat Arba. He was a father of two and soon to be three: his wife is in an advanced stage of pregnancy.

The Gush Etzion Regional Council said in a statement, “The Council and residents of the region join hands in sending their condolences to Gelman’s family, and embrace them in deep grief.”

Details of the funeral are not yet complete.

Israeli Critically Wounded in Terror Attack at Gush Etzion Junction

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

An Arab terrorist attacked an Israeli, around 12:20 PM on Wednesday, at the Gush Etzion Junction in Judea, about 15 minutes south of Jerusalem.

The terrorist attempted to stab one Israeli at a hitchhiking post. The Israeli managed to pull out his pistol to defend himself.

The terrorist was neutralized by IDF gunfire. The terrorist is listed in moderate condition and was evacuated to the hospital.

It now appears that the intended Israeli victim was shot by friendly fire from the IDF soldiers neutralizing the terrorist.

The victim was treated by medics before being evacuated in critical condition to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center with a chest wound.

His name for your prayers is: Eliav ben Sara Rachel.

Roads to the junction were blocked off as security forces searched the area for any additional terrorists.

“Forces at the scene fired towards the assailant in order to thwart the attack,” said the IDF in a statement. “As a result of the fire, the Israeli was injured. The Israeli and the assailant were both evacuated to hospital for medical treatment,” the IDF spokesperson added.

Last month, a pregnant woman in her 30s was stabbed by an Arab terrorist in the eastern Gush Etzion town of Tekoa while working in a clothing warehouse. The victim is the daughter-in-law of Rabbi Menachem Froman, a Jewish leader who spent his entire life advocating for co-existence with his Arab neighbors. Earlier that same day a medical nurse and mother of six was stabbed by an Arab terrorist in her own home in the community of Otniel.

As a result, Etzion Brigade Commander Colonel Roman Gofman ordered a temporary ban on allowing Arabs from the Palestinian Authority to enter communities in Gush Etzion, including stores and businesses. The ban affected many places where Arabs and Jews work and shop together.

Last November 19, three people were murdered and seven others were wounded in a shooting and ramming attack in Gush Etzion – first at the intersection of Alon Shvut and then at the Gush Etzion Junction. Among those who died was 18-year-old American yeshiva student Ezra Schwartz.

On Tuesday this week, IDF engineers and Border Guard Police demolished the home of the terrorist who carried out the Gush Etzion attack on Nov. 19.

21-Year-Old Father Stabbed to Death in Front of Wife and Baby North of Jerusalem

Friday, February 19th, 2016

by Michael Bachner A deadly stabbing attack was carried out by two Palestinian terrorists at an Israeli supermarket in the Binyamin Region on Thursday, February 18, killing Tuvia Yanai Weissman, a 21-year-old resident of the Jewish community of Michmash.

Weissman will be laid to rest on Friday morning at 8 am at the Mount Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem.

According to a police spokesperson, shortly before 5:00 PM two 14-year-old Palestinians entered the supermarket in the Shaar Binyamin industrial zone and walked around for 20 minutes before stabbing two Israeli men, one of whom suffered critical wounds and died in hospital. Civilians prevented the terrorists from escaping by using shopping carts until the terrorists were shot by two armed civilians at the scene.

“The store was packed with people when I suddenly heard people screaming,” an eyewitness at the scene told Tazpit Press Service (TPS). “Someone was shouting ‘what are you doing?’ and then I heard the gunshots. When people were running away I heard babies and women crying, it was frantic.”

According to Magen David Adom (MDA), two civilians were wounded in the incident. One of them, 21-year-old Weissman, was critically wounded after suffering stab wounds to his neck. He was treated at the scene and transported, unconscious, to Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem where he later succumbed to his wounds.

The second victim, 36-year-old Avi Avital, resident of the nearby Jewish community of Tel Zion, suffered moderate stab wounds in the back and was transported fully conscious to Hadassah Medical Center on Mount Scopus in Jerusalem. At least 10 other people at the scene suffered from shock, including a pregnant woman.

Yanai Weissman is survived by his wife Yael and their 4-month-old baby daughter, both of whom were present at the scene of the deadly attack.

Israel’s President Reuven Rivlin commented: “A man returns from his day at work, stops to buy groceries for the Sabbath, and is taken away forever by murderous villains. We will stand strong and respond firmly to restore calm and normality to the lives of our citizens everywhere. We will defeat terrorism,” he said.

“At this time of anguish and heartache, I wish to offer comfort to the bereaved family, and my prayers for the quick recovery of the wounded,” added Rivlin.

“We are deeply saddened by the murder of Yanai, a resident of Michmash,” Avi Roeh, Head of the Binyamin Regional Council told TPS. “The pain and sorrow are huge but we will not be broken. The People of Israel has faced many tough times during history and always coped with them and grew stronger. To all those who try to harm us, I want to say that we are determined and strong and that we will win.”

The two wounded terrorists, identified as Iham Sabah and Omar al-Rimawi from the Palestinian Authority village of Beitunia near Ramallah, were treated at the scene and transported to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem. Sabah was later pronounced dead by the hospital, while al-Rimawi was reported to be in moderate to serious condition.

The Shaar Binyamin industrial zone is a joint shopping and business area where both Jews and Palestinians coexisted together peacefully until today. The IDF announced that following the attack, Arabs from the Palestinian Authority will not be allowed into the industrial zone until Sunday. The supermarket was ordered to be shut down following the security guards’ failure to prevent the entry of the two knife-wielding terrorists.
