Terrorist Prematurely Explodes in Abu Dis

Sunday, January 24th, 2016

On Saturday evening, a terrorist killed himself when the bomb he was carrying blew up.

The attack happened near the Border Police checkpoint in Abu Dis, in eastern Jerusalem.

It is unclear if this was meant as a suicide bomb attack, or if the bomb blew up before the terrorist could throw it at the policemen.

No one was injured in the attack.

In December, 25 Arabs, most from around Abu Dis, were arrested as part of a Hamas cell that were planning and preparing to commit suicide bomb attacks.

Updated: 10 Dead as Explosion Rocks Central Istanbul, No Israelis Present

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

A popular tourist site in the heart of Istanbul was turned into a scene of horror Tuesday morning when a massive explosion sent bodies flying in Sultanahmet Square.

At least 10 people were killed and 15 more are wounded, according to the Istanbul governor’s office.

Israel Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nachson told JewishPress.com that “as far as he knows” no Israelis were present at the time of the blast.

Officials believe the explosion may have been caused by a suicide bomber, according to numerous reports. A Turkish official told AFP on condition of anonymity that terrorist links are suspected. The Istanbul governor’s office said authorities are investigating the type of explosives used in the blast.

Three of the injured foreigners are from Germany. Two are from Norway, according to Dogan News Agency. There was a group of German tourists on the square at the time of the blast, Reuters reported.

Shortly after the explosion, Turkish authorities banned coverage by media, Anadolu news agency reported.

The blast occurred near the obelisk of Theodosius in Istanbul’s Fatih district, not far from the famed Blue Mosque. Some of the wounded, including tourists, were evacuated to the Haseki Research and Training Hospital.

One eyewitness told news reporters the explosion was instantaneous, like “a ball of flame.”

There have been two major bombing attacks within the past 12 month in Turkey, both by Da’esh (ISIS). More than 30 people died in July in an ISIS suicide bombing in the border town of Suruc, near Syria. The second attack was a twin bombing by a local ISIS cell outside a main train station in Ankara last October killed more than 100 demonstrators at a peace rally.

ISIS Behind Terror Attack on Tunisia’s Presidential Guard

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Da’esh (ISIS) has taken responsibility for Tuesday’s blast in Tunis that left 13 dead and numerous others wounded.

A suicide bomber detonated the explosives vest under his jacket as he climbed aboard a bus carrying the presidential guard in the Tunisian capital.

The terrorist was identified as Abu Abdullah al-Tunisi in a statement uploaded to the Internet by Da’esh on Wednesday.

The “tyrants of Tunis will not have peace and we will not rest until the law of God governs in Tunis,” said the statement.

Da’esh has repeatedly targeted Tunisia, which has struggled to bring its society back to the calm stability for which the country was known to tourists around the world prior to the start of the Jasmine Revolution in 2011.

That event began with a Tunisian pushcart merchant who self-immolated in a town square, igniting the Arab Spring, which eventually swept the entire region and toppled four Arab governments in its wake.

A 30-day state of emergency was declared by Tunisia’s President Beji Caid Essebsi, who currently heads a secular government, after Tuesday’s attack.

Failed Ma’ale Adumim Suicide Bomber Identified as Jerusalem Resident

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

The failed suicide bomber who attempted to blow herself up outside the Jerusalem suburb of Ma’ale Adumim has been identified as a 31-year-old resident of an Arab neighborhood in the capital.

According to local sources she divides her time between the Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar and the Jordan Valley city of Jericho, in the east.

A female terrorist previously unknown to Israeli security forces, she lit a gas balloon she carried in her car – not a bona fide explosive device – and expected it to do the job.

The makeshift bomb did explode, but not in the way she expected. She tried to leave the car as it went up in flames.

A search of the injured bomber after the attack revealed she had handwritten notes, supporting “martyrs.”

She was critically wounded in her attempt to carry out her attack, and is now lying in a bed at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

The traffic police officer who blocked her from successfully reaching downtown Jerusalem to carry out her attack was admitted to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in good condition with second-degree burns on his face and upper body.

Escalation as Tragedy Avoided in Female Terrorist Car Bomb En Route to Downtown Jerusalem

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

A major tragedy was avoided Sunday morning when a 45-year-old police officer stopped a female suicide bomber at the al-Zaim checkpoint near Ma’ale Adumim, about three miles from downtown Jerusalem.

According to police, the vehicle looked suspicious as it traveled slowly in the bus lane on Route 437 shortly after 7 am, so the traffic police officer signaled for the driver to stop.

She obeyed, but as the policeman began to approach the vehicle, the driver yelled “Allahu Akbar!” and detonated a bomb in her car.

According to Israel Radio, the bomber was trying to reach downtown Jerusalem. Instead, she was badly injured in the blast.

MDA teams who arrived treated the police officer at the scene and then evacuated him to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem with burns to his face and upper body.

The terrorist was transported to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

Following the attack, the section connecting the Highway 1 Ma’ale Adumim ramp and the al-Zaim checkpoint was closed in both directions.

“When we arrived we were led to a man .. who was fully conscious,” paramedic Aharon Adler told Walla!. “He was walking, and suffered burns to his upper body. We gave him medical attention and evacuated him to hospital in stable condition.”

Adler added that “when we were able to go near the vehicle, we took care of the driver who was conscious, with burns all over her body, and evacuated her to hospital in critical condition.”

Former MK Prof. Aryeh Eldad told NRG: “I was traveling uphill from Ma’ale Adumim to Jerusalem. About 100 yards ahead of me the traffic had stopped and I saw smoke. Police arrived with a sapper, and I heard it was a suicide bomber on the road. We heard warnings about this area and apparently the warning was about this.”

Early analysis suggests that this morning’s car bomb marks an escalation in the cycle of violence, from sporadic acts on the part of individuals and loosely organized riots to an attack operation that requires a more established organization.

The same analysts point to internal struggles inside the Palestinian Authority, and between Hamas and the PA, as well as between Salafi Muslim jihadists in Gaza and the ruling Sunni Muslim Hamas — all of which are being expressed through anti-Israeli violence.

First Suicide Bomber of the Season [video]

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

A female suicide bomber drove up to the Al-Zaim checkpoint near Maaleh Adumim towards Jerusalem on Sunday morning, just after 7 AM, according to Israeli police.

She was stopped 200 meters before the checkpoint by a policeman, as something about her looked suspicious.

As the policeman approached to question her, she yelled “Allahu Achbar” and then blew up a bomb in her car, lightly wounding the policeman (45).

The Arab terrorist is seriously wounded.

Initially policed believe she intended to blow up at the checkpoint itself and kill the soldiers, but according to Israel Radio, she was on her way to downtown Jerusalem.

A second bomb has been found in the car and sappers are diffusing it.
