Young Jewish Child Hurt in Stoning Attack Near Tekoa

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

A five-year-old child was hurt Sunday afternoon when Arab terrorists attacked the car in which he was riding as it traveled south between the Jewish community of Tekoa and the Amos Junction in eastern Gush Etzion.

The child was injured by flying glass from the windshield as it was smashed upon impact from the rocks that were thrown. He was treated at the scene and then evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem with a head injury.

Travelers in a second vehicle, traveling north, also came under a stoning attack on the same road by Arab terrorists at around the same time, but escaped injury, although their vehicle was also damaged.

Israeli security forces were deployed to search the area for the attackers.

Road Terror Heats Up: Double Paint-Bottle Attack on Israeli Bus Near Tekoa

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Arab terrorists hurled two paint-filled bottles at an Israeli bus traveling the road near the Jewish community of Tekoah late Monday night, on the eastern side of Gush Etzion in Judea, according to Hatzoloh emergency response service of Judea and Samaria.

Such an attack can be particularly deadly.

When a “paint bottle’ shatters upon impact as it strikes the vehicle, the paint splatters. Not only can the shattering glass injure the passengers and/or the driver — in addition to causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle — but the paint can cover the windshield and also windows, thus blinding the driver’s ability to see the road and other things around.

No information was available on whether any of the passengers were physically injured in the attack.

But it wasn’t the first attack of the day by any means, nor the first attack of the day near Tekoa, either. Earlier in the evening, Arab terrorists attacked Israeli motorists traveling near the junction leading to Tekoa. The passengers were not physically injured but the vehicle was damaged in the attack.

On the western side of Gush Etzion, Arab terrorists firebombed an Israeli public bus also Monday night as it traveled past the Al Fuwar junction near Kiryat Arba and Hebron. No word on the status of the vehicle, but no physical injuries reported among the passengers.

Terror Stoning Attack Near Tekoa in Eastern Gush Etzion

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Arab terrorists attacked Israeli motorists traveling near the junction leading to the Jewish community of Tekoa on Monday evening, located in Judea’s eastern section of Gush Etzion.

The Israeli vehicle was hit by stones hurled by the Arab attackers as it neared the junction. No one in the vehicle was physically injured but the vehicle itself was damaged.

Stoning attacks can be lethal, but Arab road terrorists also employ other means of killing as well, including vehicular ramming attacks.

In 2012, Tekoa resident Dr. Shira Abramson, a doctor at Shaare Zedek Medical Center and mother of seven, was killed in a head-on collision with an Arab truck near the junction. Abramson’s husband, well-known rabbi and musician David “Harpo” Abramson, had died of a heart attack just two years earlier.
