Palestinian Arab Stabber Identified, But Terror Affiliation Unclear

Monday, August 17th, 2015

The Shin Bet (General Security Service) has identified the Palestinian Arab terrorist who stabbed a Border Guard Police officer at the Tapuach junction earlier today as 25-year-old Mahmad Amsha, a resident of Samaria. But his “terror credentials” are still unclear.

Amsha lived in a village southwest of Jenin, according to the Shin Bet, and was a “lone wolf” attacker, unaffiliated with any recognized terror organization. Arab media reported Amsha was age 22 and a member of the Islamic Jihad terror organization, however.

Around midday Monday, (Aug. 17), Amsha approached a Border Guard Police officer guarding the Tapuach junction, saying he didn’t feel well and asking for medical assistance, according to the IDF spokesperson’s unit.

“When he got within a close range of the forces, he pulled out a knife and attempted to stab an officer,” the IDF said in a statement. “The officer was lightly injured and managed to fight off the assailant. The forces on site responded immediately, firing towards the attacker.”

Amsha subsequently died of his wounds, despite receiving treatment by IDF medics on site.

In its response, the Palestinian Authority warned in a statement: “Israel is executing our people in cold blood and the international community should stop it before the situation explodes.”

Monday’s attack was nearly identical to a similar attack in the same spot on Saturday by another Palestinian Authority Arab who likewise stabbed an IDF soldier in the back after he had turned to get him the water the terrorist had asked for, saying he was thirsty.

In that instance as well, other soldiers at the scene acted swiftly to neutralize the stabber, who later died of his gunshot wounds.

IDF Soldiers Foil Terrorist Stabbing, Neutralize Attacker in Samaria

Monday, August 17th, 2015

IDF soldiers foiled an attempted terror attack by a Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist Monday at the Tapuach junction in Samaria (Shomron), north of Jerusalem.

The terrorist attempted to stab a Border Guard Police officer who was standing guard at the junction, approximately the same location where a Palestinian Arab terrorist stabbed another soldier this past Saturday.

“A short while ago a Palestinian suspect approached the forces guarding the Tapuach junction, asking for help and medical assistance,” the IDF spokesperson’s unit explained in an SMS text statement to media.

“When he got within a close range of the forces, he pulled out a knife and attempted to stab an officer. The officer was lightly injured and managed to fight off the assailant. The forces on site responded immediately, firing towards the attacker.”

The terrorist reportedly died of his wounds, but this has not yet been confirmed.

Shomron Regional Council Yossi Dagan responded to the event with a strong statement of appreciation to the military and a call for the government to publicly support security forces as they enforce law and order in Judea and Samaria.

“We thank the security forces for their swift action,” Dagan said. “I call upon the prime minister to publicly support the soldiers for their decisive moves that without doubt saved the the lives of many — both civilians and soldiers — who were present at the scene [of the attack.]”
