2 Arab Teens Nabbed in Jaffa Stone-Throwing Attack

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Two Arab attackers were arrested in Jaffa (Yafo) Wednesday evening after they were caught throwing stones at a bus in the center of town. Both of the terrorists-in-training were legal minors and cannot be identified due to their ages, though their youth did not stop them from attempting to kill Israelis.

Numerous people have been murdered in Israel by Arab terrorists hurling rocks at the vehicles in which they were traveling. As a result, the Israeli government has upgraded the fines and prison terms for convictions of this crime in all age groups as a result.

In Wednesday night’s attack in Jaffa, the bus was damaged but none of the passengers were physically injured.

1 Police Officer Wounded, 5 Arrested in Arab Riot Over Temple Mount

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

A Lod police officer was wounded Wednesday evening after being struck in the head by a stone that was thrown by rioting Arabs.

The attackers were “demonstrating” their anger over the determined enforcement of laws by security personnel permitting visits by Jews to the grounds of the Temple Mount, in which the Al Aqsa mosque is located.

The “demonstration,” held in a central square of the city, quickly turned violent as the “protesters” had planned ahead by bringing their own ammunition (stones, etc.) to the event.

Five of the attackers were arrested by security forces in the central Israeli city, which is located close to Ben Gurion International Airport.

Israeli Sappers Detonate Roadside Bomb on Samaria Road

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Israeli police sappers were called Wednesday evening to detonate a roadside bomb apparently planted by Palestinian Arab terrorists on a road in Samaria.

The trap was well laid: The explosive appeared to be an unobtrusive object on the road connecting the small Jewish communities of Peduel and Bruchin.

The sappers detonated the object – which actually was a bomb – without fanfare. No injuries were reported in the incident.

Earlier this evening, a Border Guard Police officer sustained facial wounds while she was working to disperse a mob of stone-throwing Palestinian Arabs who were attacking the police. The officer, who required medical treatment, was evacuated to a medical facility.

Firebombing Attacks Arrive on Israel’s Highway 6

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Road terror has arrived on Israel’s superhighway, Highway 6.

Arab terrorists hurled firebombs (Molotov cocktails) in at least two separate attacks north of the Ayal Interchange on Highway 6 after midnight, early Tuesday morning (Oct. 6).

The attack occurred near the Palestinian Arab city of Kalkilya in Samaria.

An Israeli motorist who was driving along the highway overnight said he saw a firebomb fly through the air on to the road and ignite, according to the Hebrew-language 0404 website.

A second motorist made a similar report to Israel Police but by the time a patrol car reached the site and scanned the area, the perpetrator was long gone.

The flames caused no damage and no one was hurt by the attack.

Recently an aide to Shas government minister Arye Deri was struck in one of two stone-throwing terror attacks from a bridge over Highway 6.

The rear window of the aide’s vehicle was hit as he was driving in the northbound lane, and sustained minor damage.

The rear windshield of a second vehicle that was struck was smashed.
