Update: Terrorist Killed after Stabbing IDF Soldier near Hebron

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

An Arab terrorist stabbed an IDF soldier at the Al-Fawwar junction near Kiryat Arab Wednesday morning on the road to Beit Haggai in the Judean hills, and the attacker was shot and later died.

The terrorist was driving on the road where soldiers were stationed near Beit Haggai, and stopped his vehicle to get out and attack the soldier, stabbing him in the throat.

He was shot by other IDF soldiers at the guard post. The 20-year-old terrorist from the Arab village of Al-Fawwar was seriously wounded and was evacuated to Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, where he later died.

The soldier, age 20, was treated at the scene before being rushed, still fully conscious, to Sha’are Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. He is listed in serious condition.

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

A 20-year-old IDF soldier was murdered and an 18-year-old teenage girl was hurt in an Arab terrorist attack at the Dor Alon gas station on Highway 443 on Monday afternoon.

The soldier has been identified as Ziv Mizrachi of Givat Ze’ev HY”D.

The Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist tackled Ziv Mizrahi when he exited the car in which he and the Jewish girl arrived at the gas station, stabbing them both. The station is located between Jerusalem and Modi’in near Beit Horon.

The young lady is good condition and was evacuated to a nearby medical center by Magen David Adom medics.

The terrorist was neutralized; he was shot and killed.

At least one previous terror attack took place on Highway 443 near the Maccabim checkpoint in July of this year. Arab terrorists prepared an ambush for Israeli motorists: a gas cylinder hidden among burning tires blocking the Jerusalem-bound side of the highway. Sappers were summoned to neutralize the threat.

Arab terrorists also continued to attack Israeli vehicles on the highway – known as the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway – hurling rocks and other items at the travelers, throughout the summer months.

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

The body of young Hadar Buchris, z’l was laid to rest at 3 pm Monday, Nov. 23 in the holy city of Jerusalem. Her parents requested the public to attend if possible.

Buchris, age 21, was murdered by a Palestinian Authority Arab who stabbed her Sunday in a brutal terrorist attack at the Gush Etzion bus stop on Highway 60 in Judea.

Although she lived in Safed (Tzefat), the family decided that their daughter’s body would be buried at the Har HaMenuchot cemetery in the capital. “She really loved Jerusalem, and was very connected to the city, so in the holy city she shall be laid to rest,” her family explained to the Hebrew-language 0404 website.

The young woman’s family said it was “asking the people of Israel to please join them in accompanying their daughter on her final journey” as they lay her to rest.

May her memory be for a blessing. Yehi zichra baruch.

Critically Wounded Police Officer Resumes Duty 5 Months Later, Offers Prayer of Thanks at Western Wall

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

A critically injured Border Guard Police officer has returned to duty after being stabbed by a Palestinian Authority terrorist in Jerusalem.

Officer Raz Bibi returned to active service on Monday, five months after he nearly lost his life in the terror attack at the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem. Just 20 years old, he went back to the Old City — the place where he was attacked — to offer prayers of gratitude at the Western Wall for his miraculous recovery.

Upon his arrival at the Western Wall Plaza, the officer found a touching surprise, when the members of his unit greeted him with cheers and applause for his bravery.

Just before he lost consciousness on that terrible day five months ago, the courageous officer had managed to shoot and kill the vicious terrorist who stabbed him.

“I was very happy to see this special military unit that has stood by the door at the hospital since [Bibi] was wounded, and supported him and prayed for his recovery together with all the people of Israel,” said Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz, the rabbi of the Western Wall.

“Now [the unit] is once again with him, this time with thanks for the great miracle that happened to him, and his surprising recovery against all the predictions,” the rabbi told the soldiers who were gathered around the officer.

Scissors Stabbers Attack Security Guard, Arab Man Near Jerusalem’s Mahane Yehuda Market [video]

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

Two female Arab terrorists carried out what they must have believed was a “real jihad” attack on Monday morning when they stabbed an elderly Arab man with a pair of scissors on Jerusalem’s central Jaffa Street at around 11:10 am.

The stabbing took place next to the offices of the Ministry of Health, across the street from the iconic Mahane Yehuda open air market.

The terrorists arrived at the scene with their makeshift weapons and started trying to stab people. Their first victim, a 70-year-old Arab man from the Palestinian Authority-occupied city of Bethlehem, was stabbed in the head and suffered light to moderate wounds.

A second victim, a 27-year-old security guard at a nearby government office, was hit in the hand by a stray bullet that ricocheted. Several bystanders suffered shock as well.

Both the “new to the fold” terrorists, ages 14 and 16 from Jerusalem, were immediately neutralized by armed Israelis on site, who opened fire, as did a policeman who raced to the scene straight from a barber’s chair with his M-16 rifle and purple barber sheet flying along behind him (see video below).

One terrorist is dead, and the other is listed in serious and unstable condition.

The injured were treated at the scene by Magen David Adom medics before being evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center.

Emotions Run Deep as Body of Ezra Schwartz, z’l Arrives in US for Burial

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

Emotions ran deep as the body of young Ezra Schwartz, z’l arrived home in Boston for burial on Sunday, Nov. 22, accompanied by many of the students with whom he had learned weeks earlier.

Dozens of young men bid farewell Saturday night to the 18-year-old yeshiva student who was brutally murdered in a terrorist attack by a Palestinian Authority Arab last Thursday.

Many yeshiva students from Beit Shemesh volunteered to travel the final journey with their fellow student’s body. They and numerous others gathered in a circle at Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv on Saturday night to sing the Israeli national anthem, HaTikvah. Schwartz was one of a total of five people who lost their lives to Arab terror on Thursday.

Yeshiva University Israel Alumni and Yeshiva University in Israel joined Yeshivat Ashreinu, Israel Friends and Alumni of Maimonides School and Klal Yisroel in mourning the student’s tragic death.

It was announced that a memorial service is scheduled for Sunday evening November 22 on the campus of Midrashiat Amaliah, Rehov Haim Heller 31, Givat Mordechai, Jerusalem. Recitation of Tehillim is set to begin at 6:30 pm. The funeral for the young yeshiva student, scheduled to begin at 7:00 pm Israel time, will be broadcast live on site.

On Saturday night, as farewells were said to the murdered American, people in Kiryat Gat raced for cover while others hunted for another Arab terrorist who stabbed four new victims, one a 13-year-old girl. Several hours later with air and ground support that included some 250 police officers, the stabber was caught just before midnight, with the blood-drenched knife still in his possession.

Barely 100 meters from the scene of the attack, the 16-year-old terrorist was hiding in a backyard on the same street where he stabbed his victims. He was given up to authorities by two of his friends, according to the Hebrew-language newspaper, Yediot Aharonot, and identified as an illegal worker from Hebron.
