8 Overnight Arab Terror Attacks on Israeli Motorists

Friday, November 6th, 2015

In eight separate cases overnight Thursday night Israeli motorists found themselves with flying rocks and flaming bottle bombs smashing into their cars — sometimes directly at their windshields.

Arab terrorists carried out at least eight such attacks in different locations in the early hours of Friday morning in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.

Attackers hurled firebombs along southern areas of Highway 60 in Judea. Arab terrorists hurled rocks and firebombs at motorists who drove past the villages of El Aroub, Tubas, Ein Yabrud and Kfar Na’ama.

IDF soldiers searched the area for the perpetrators after several vehicles reported the attacks, and eventually found some of the weapons.

The forces discovered a stockpile of firebombs (Molotov cocktails) and rocks squirreled away for use as ammunition in attacks against Israeli motorists.

Attacks were also reported at the Mount of Olives and the City of David in Jerusalem, and near the Samaria Arab city of Tulkarm as well.

No information was released about damage to property or injuries to travelers.

Arab Terror Attacks Popping Up in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Arab terror attacks continued Thursday night on the roads in and around Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria, continuing the wave of Arab violence against Israeli Jews.

So far, Israel’s government and security establishment still intend to permit Arabs of all ages free access to the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount Friday, despite the week-long festival of internet incitement to violence by radical Islamist preachers calling for the murder of Jews on the altar of “rescuing Al Aqsa.”

On Route 60 in Samaria north of Jerusalem, Israelis escaped injury when Arabs opened fire at people standing at a hitchhiking station. The attack took place next to the Jewish community of Ofra in the Binyamin region. The terrorists shot at four soldiers who were guarding the hitchhiking post, firing three bullets from a handgun, according to security sources. No injuries were reported. IDF soldiers at the stop returned fire at the terrorists, who drove away in a white Skoda, heading in the direction of the Arab village of Yabrud.

At around the same time, four Arabs in a car disguised themselves as Israeli police officers and tried to stop an Israeli vehicle on the highway in Judea Thursday afternoon.

Shortly thereafter, an Israeli motorist was forced to take evasive action while driving on the road near Ofra when Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb at his vehicle. No one was injured in that attack and there was no damage to the vehicle. IDF forces are searching for the perpetrators in all of the above attacks.

Arabs in eastern Jerusalem this evening also hurled an improvised explosive device at Border Guard Police officers patrolling near the Mount of Olives cemetery. The pipe bomb was aimed at the officers stationed next to the ancient Jewish cemetery.

Rioters are throwing firebombs (Molotov cocktails and stones at Israeli vehicles as they drive near Hebron, and on the road close to the village of Husan, south of Jerusalem. Husan is the village located opposite Beitar along Highway 60. “There were stones on the road, and army jeeps in the village,” a Jewish resident of Efrat told JewishPress.com .

In the Jerusalem neighborhood of A-Tur, police searched for Arabs who hurled an IED at a patrol vehicle making the rounds earlier this evening. The explosive device was hurled from one of the houses in the neighborhood and missed the patrol vehicle. Instead, it hit a parked car and exploded. Two people received treatment for severe trauma in the attack.

In a separate attack, two IEDs (makeshift bombs) were hurled at the Tomb of the Biblical matriarch Rachel, where the IDF has posted a permanent security presence. No injuries were reported.

The 2015 ‘Stabbing Intifada’ in Numbers

Monday, October 19th, 2015

(JNi.media) Nehemia Gershuni, a citizen reporter active on the Rotter.net scoops message board, on Monday issued his “Stabbing Intifada of 2015 Statistics” report, which he has been collecting meticulously since October 18, 2015.

One of the most telling data in the report are the days of the week with the highest incidents of Arab violence, between September 18 and October 18, 2015. It appears the safest day for a Jew this month was Tuesday:

Another fascinating–and disturbing–fact is the sharp rise in the number of terrorist acts on October 1, immediately following the September 30 speech of Mahmoud Abbas at the UN. So much so, that most accounts see the start of the 2015 Intifada on October 1 and not at any earlier singular incident.

Among Overnight Attacks Tuesday, Gaza Terrorists Launched a Rocket at Israel But …

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

JewishPress.com will keep our readers updated with the galloping new Arab attack statistics as soon as information becomes available.

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made it his business to tour the region around the capital and inspect sites where terror attacks had been perpetrated against Israelis. The prime minister bluntly “declared war” against rock-throwers and anyone perpetrating any other form of mayhem against Israelis.

Following is a summary of the Tuesday overnight attacks:

Just before midnight, Palestinian Arabs firebombed a vehicle near the Jewish community of Itamar in Samaria.

At around the same time, dozens of Arabs were rioting in Judea near the Tomb of the Biblical Matriarch Rachel. One of the rioters was shot by IDF soldiers when he threw an IED (improvised explosive device) at the soldiers who were deployed at the site.

About a half hour after midnight, Arab terrorists launched a rocket from Gaza at southern Israel, but the projectile fell short, and instead exploded in Gaza territory.

The rocket landed in the area of Deir al-Balah, according to the Hebrew-language HaKol HaYehudi website.

IDF Gears Up to Protect Jews in Judea, Samaria

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

The IDF has beefed up its security forces in Judea and Samaria.

Patrols are being tightened along the roads in the region. Forces training in other areas of the country, such as the Golan Heights, have been redeployed further south as well.

Although military sources said the moves do not indicate any change in the region’s security status, nevertheless IDF Central Command is clearly taking no more chances.

Defense leaders gathered at security meeting convened by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu Monday night.

Among other decisions, Netanyahu ordered security personnel to demolish the homes of convicted Arab terrorists, as a deterrent measure.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Public Defense Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch, IDF Chief-of-Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, Shin Bet Director Yoram Cohen, Israel Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino and Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein were all in attendance at the meeting.

The gathering convened in the wake of terror attacks in Tel Aviv and Gush Etzion just a few hours earlier that left two young Israelis dead and a number of other Israelis wounded.

One of the two victims, 26-year-old Dalia Lamkus of Tekoa, was laid to rest this morning (Tuesday, Nov. 11) at the cemetery in her community. She had survived a stabbing during prior terror attack in 2006.

The second victim, IDF Staff Sergeant Almog Shilony, age 20, is to be laid to rest this afternoon in a private ceremony at the military cemetery at Mount Herzl. His family has requested the media refrain from coverage.
