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.

1 Judge Out in Manslaughter Trial of IDF Soldier

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

One of the judges has been recused in the manslaughter trial of an IDF soldier who shot and killed an injured Arab terrorist in Hebron.

Lt. Col. Yogev Yifrah, one of a panel of three judges in the military court, was removed due to his prior acquaintance with a witness who is slated to testify in the case, according to Walla!

Sgt. Elor Azaria is accused of killing the terrorist after he was already on the ground and disabled moments after he and a second terrorist had stabbed an IDF soldier in Hebron.

The trial is scheduled to continue as soon as Yifrah is replaced with another judge, by the president of the Jaffa Military Court, Col. Maya Heller.

Terrorist Convicted in 2014 Murder of IDF Soldier Almog Shiloni, z’l

Wednesday, May 18th, 2016

An Arab terrorist from Shechem was convicted Wednesday of the November 2014 murder of an IDF soldier outside the Hagana train station in Tel Aviv.

The terrorist, Nur al-Din Abu Hashayeh, was convicted in Tel Aviv District Court of murdering 20-year-old Almog Shiloni, according to Israel Radio.

Hashayeh, age 18 at the time of the murder, illegally entered sovereign Israeli territory the day before he carried out the attack.

Under interrogation he told investigators he had hoped to be killed by security personnel during the attack, thereby becoming a “martyr.” In this way he would earn a generous monthly salary for his family from the Palestinian Authority government and also would gain eternal fame as well.

Nevertheless, the killer has likely nevertheless succeeded in gaining at least a somewhat generous monthly stipend for his family from the Ramallah government, which pays the families of convicted Arab terrorists imprisoned in Israel on a scale rated in accordance with the severity of the attack, the number of victims and length of sentence.

In this case, Hashayeh caught the young soldier by surprise and stabbed him in the stomach. As he fell to the ground and tried to defend himself with his legs, the terrorist stabbed him several more times while trying to grab his M-16 assault rifle and attack nearby bystanders.

Israelis who saw the attack rushed over and hit the terrorist, who the fled, tossing away his knife on the way.

Although the homes of many such terrorists have been demolished during the current wave of terror, Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled last December that “too much time had passed” for demolition to be carried out as a deterrent measure in this case.

Israeli Stabbed in Jerusalem Attack, Terrorist Captured

Monday, May 16th, 2016

A 26-year-old hareidi man was stabbed in Jerusalem by an Arab terrorist shortly after 9 am Monday morning near the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem. The attack took place on HaNevi’im Street, as the man was walking with his family. He was stabbed in the shoulder while fending off the terrorist.

United Hatzalah volunteer medic Dovid Shekler was first to arrive on the scene. “I saw a young man who was stabbed in his upper body and began treating him,” Shekler said. “I continued to treat him until an emergency services ambulance arrived at the scene and evacuated him to Shaare Zedek Medical Center. He was fully conscious at the time of transport.” The victim sustained minor wounds and was in good condition, according to Magen David Adom (MDA) medics who brought him to the hospital.

Jerusalem District Police and Border Guard Police forces heard shouting near the Damascus Gate and hurried to the scene, according to a spokesperson for Jerusalem Police. The attacker, who fled towards Ben Shadad Street, was seen tossing a knife to the side.

“Police pursued the suspect and arrested him,” said a spokesperson for Jerusalem District Police. The 20-year-old terrorist, an Arab from the Palestinian Authority, was transferred for questioning, according to Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld.

Islamist Killer Yelled ‘Allahu Akbar!’ in Attack Near Munich

Tuesday, May 10th, 2016

A 50-year-old Wasserburg man was murdered and three others wounded, one seriously, after being stabbed at around 5 am local time Tuesday at a railway station in the suburb of Grafing, 25 miles southeast of central Munich.

Witnesses allege the attacker yelled “Allahu Akbar!” (God is Great! in Arabic) during the incident, the Süddeutsche Zeitung reported.

The 27-year-old suspected attacker captured and arrested by German police shortly after “made remarks at the scene of the crime that indicate a political motive — apparently an Islamist motive,” said a spokesperson for the Bavarian prosecutors’ office who was quoted by The Guardian.

“We are still determining what the exact remarks were,” the spokesperson added. The railway station was cordoned off, leading to restrictions on the Munich S-Bahn rail network.

Germany is participating in the U.S.-led coalition fight against Da’esh (ISIS), which has methodically set about attacking targets in every country participating in the coalition air strikes against its bases in Syria.

Two Arab suspects were arrested Tuesday morning shortly after terrorists attacked a group of five ladies in their 70s and 80s walking on a path in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood, near the ‘Shalom Forest’. The women sat down on a bench along the path during their walk, passing two Arab youths in the process.

The two youths, both wearing masks, attacked them from behind according to Israel Police, who spoke with the women following the attack.

The terrorists stabbed two of the five women in the chest before fleeing in the direction of the Jabel Mukabar neighborhood, a terrorist hotbed in the city.

Both women were rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center with serious wounds. They were admitted to the hospital’s Trauma Unit in fair condition.

Israel Police and Border Guard Police officers immediately responded to the women’s call for help, appearing on the scene within moments after the attack.

Police had set up road blocks around the area and security personnel immediately launched a manhunt for the attackers.

“During the search two suspects were detained for questioning to determine whether they were involved in the attack,” security sources said. “The investigation is continuing and Israeli intelligence personnel are operating as well to track down and capture those responsible.”
