Life Imprisonment for Terrorist who Killed Mother of Six in Otniel

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

by Ilana Messika The military court in Judea sentenced the terrorist who stabbed 39-year old Dafna Meir to death last January at her home in Otniel to life imprisonment, and ordered the man to pay NIS 1.75 million in damages.

On the evening of January 17, 2016, the terrorist entered the Otniel, south of Hebron, through a hole in the fence and went on to murder Meir — a nurse in the neurosurgery department at Soroka Medical Center — in front of three of her six children.

The defendant confessed to a charge of first-degree murder.

The Court emphasized that the appropriate punishment for someone who committed a crime of such extraordinary brutality and in cold blood is deprivation of liberty for the rest of his life. The Court further recommended that the killer never be considered for early release.

The name of the convict was not released because he is a minor.

Border Guard Police Officer Attacked Near Jerusalem

Saturday, October 15th, 2016

An Arab terrorist stabbed a Border Guard Police officer on Sabbath morning during operations on a road near the Jewish community of Har Adar, northwest of Jerusalem.

The officer was operating with a patrol unit that was preparing to open a road next to a security barrier when he was ambushed by the terrorist, who sprang out of the brush near the barrier, brandishing a knife.

He aimed at any officer he could reach and managed to stab at least one, before turning and escaping towards the nearby Arab town of Beit Surik, near Har Adar.

The wounded police officer sustained a shoulder wound and was treated on the scene before he was evacuated, first to Har Adar, and then to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

Israeli security teams are hunting for the stabber and those who were involved in planning the attack.

IDF Soldier in Stable Condition After Attack North of Jerusalem

Sunday, October 2nd, 2016

An IDF soldier who was stabbed Friday night by an Arab terrorist at the Qalandia crossing north of Jerusalem is currently listed in stable condition, with moderate wounds.

The 20-year-old soldier was on guard duty at the checkpoint when he was stabbed by the attacker, a 28-year-old man from the Palestinian Authority who allegedly ran on foot through the vehicle section of the checkpoint.

There, he stabbed the soldier who was deployed to check the vehicles passing through. The stabber was shot by security forces at the scene, and later died of his wounds.

The IDF immediately shut down the checkpoint in response to the attack. Violent demonstrations followed the shutdown, with hundreds of Arabs hurling rocks at the IDF soldiers. The troops employed riot control methods to disperse the mob.

Female Terrorist Shot at Check Post: ‘I Came Here to Die’

Wednesday, September 21st, 2016

During her subsequent detention and questioning, the 14-year-old Arab girl who had been shot in the legs Wednesday morning reportedly told her interrogators: “I came here to die.”

The female terrorist was carrying a bag on Wednesday morning as she approached on foot the Eliyahu Crossing vehicle check post on Rt. 55 between Alfei Menashe and Karney Shomron in Samaria. The Crossings Authority security guards ordered her to stop and fired warning shots in the air, but the young woman continued to approach them, and when she put her hand inside her shirt the guards shot her in the leg to stop her.

No one else was hurt. A sapper was called in to examine the woman’s bag, and once he cleared the scene the terrorist received medical care. Her condition is light to moderate.

UN Special Envoy ‘Disturbed’ by Spike in Violence, Warns Israel and Palestinian Authority Alike

Monday, September 19th, 2016

United Nations Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Nicolay Mladenov has called on Israelis and Arabs from the Palestinian Authority to “preserve calm” and “avoid escalation” in the recent wave of terror.

Unsurprisingly, Mladenov has drawn a moral equivalency between the attackers and the attackees.

“I reiterate the United Nations position that there can be no justification for terrorism and violence,” Mladenov stated. “I call upon authorities on both sides to take measures to preserve calm and avoid escalation, especially during the upcoming period of the Jewish High Holy Days.”

He added that he was “disturbed by the recent violence over the past week,” as well he might be. Certainly, most Israelis are: more than a couple of Israeli police officers are in hospitals with stab wounds, including a few women.

Mladenov drew a parallel between Israel and the Palestinian Authority without noting that if Israelis were not being attacked, Israeli defense forces would have no reason to respond in kind.

True, there is no justification for terrorism and violence. Absolutely correct. But what do the Israelis have to do with it? This is another case of pointing the knife in the wrong direction, especially with the approach of the holiest days on the Jewish calendar. Even a Jew has the right to life; self-defense is a G-d given privilege that no one can take away, including the United Nations.

Hebron Terrorist Stabbing Attack Thwarted by IDF

Monday, September 19th, 2016

At around 9:30 pm Monday evening, an Arab terrorist lunged at an Israeli soldier with a knife in his hand.

The incident took place in the Abu Senina neighborhood of Hebron, according to a statement by the IDF, while the forces were carrying out a patrol of the area.

The terrorist was neutralized by other soldiers in the area, who overpowered the attacker without firing their weapons. He was arrested and transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

Earlier in the day, two terrorists in Hebron tried to stab Israeli Border Guard Police officers at the Cave of the Patriarchs, near the Tel Rumeida neighborhood.

Both of the attackers, residents of Hebron, were shot by IDF soldiers stationed at the site. One of the terrorists died at the scene of the attempted stabbing; the second was pronounced dead on arrival at a nearby hospital.
