Hamas Holding Emergency Drill in Gaza

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

Hamas will be holding an emergency military exercise throughout Gaza, until 2 PM on Sunday.

During the drill, Gaza residents can expect to hear sirens, gunfire and explosions, and see armed Hamas terrorists and policemen – which makes it unclear how this will be different than any other day in the Hamas terrorist-controlled territory.

Among the scenarios that will be practiced are evacuations of some Hamas security centers, presumably after an Israeli attack.

Friday Night Infiltation into Beitar

Sunday, December 4th, 2016

It’s been a busy weekend for Beitar Illit, in Gush Etzion, just south of Jerusalem. On Saturday nights, Arab smashed the windows of cars driving down the nearby main highway.

Late Friday night, despite the fog and heavy rain, security cameras spotted two Arab infiltrators climbing over the security fence into the Ultra-Orthodox city.

The army was called out, and hundreds of soldiers ran searches all night long through the massive rain storm in the Givat Aleph neighborhood.

The alert level was finally lowered in the morning after it had been determined that the infiltrators had left the city via the fence.

An interesting point of information about Beitar, is that on Shabbat, the security chief is Faraj Daahar, an Israeli-Druze, who served as an officer in Givati, and has protected the town of Beitar as their Shabbat security chief for the past 25 years.

In August 2015, a female Arab terrorist tried to attack a security guard at the entrance to Beitar. That terrorist was killed.

ISIS Affiliated Syrians Fire on IDF Patrol on Golan Heights

Sunday, November 27th, 2016

By Andrew Friedman/TPS

A group of four armed men, reportedly connected to the Islamic State, opened fire across the Syrian border at an IDF patrol in the southern Golan Heights early Sunday.

Soldiers returned fire and killed the attackers, and Israeli fighter jets attacked targets inside Syria.

No injuries to Israeli forces were reported.

In addition, a mortar hit the area, but it is not clear if the shell landed on the Israeli or Syrian side of the border. IDF officials said they believe the incidents were part of the Syrian civil war and hit Israel in error.

The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said in a statement that “the IDF will not tolerate any violation of Israel’s sovereignty and will respond harshly to any attempt to violate it.”

Arab #PyroTerrorists Caught Trying to Start Fire Near Ariel [video]

Friday, November 25th, 2016

Security cameras caught three Arabs trying to start a fire near the city of Ariel using what appeared to be a Molotov cocktail. The three were dropped off by a car, and they then began trying to start the fire.

After starting the fire, they casually continued walking to the Arab village nearby.

Residents from Ariel got there in time to put it out using bottles of water.

The city got lucky because the Arabs didn’t pick a very flammable area and the surrounding brush and trees didn’t catch fire, even after burning for 4 minutes.

They also picked the wrong side of the road to light their fire.

The pyro-terrorists were tracked walking back to a nearby Arab village, and were caught and arrested by security personnel.

‘No Plans for Domestic Muslim Registry’ Says Trump Team

Monday, November 21st, 2016

There are no plans to set up a domestic registry for American Muslim citizens, says newly-appointed incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus.

The statement comes in direct contradiction to a flurry of liberal media buzz that has been ringing alarm bells and inciting protests in major cities across America. Priebus issued a pointed clarification on Monday, stating in an interview with CNN: “Where systematic terrorism is taking place, where countries are harboring or in places where countries are harboring and training terrorists, we’re going to temporarily suspend immigration from that country, or region, until a better vetting system is put in place.”

The statement is a reiteration of President-elect Donald Trump’s position from the time he began his campaign, when he stated his concerns about the probability of terrorists mixing in among the flood of Syrian immigrants who were being welcomed into European and other nations.

“We don’t believe in religious tests and we are not blanketly judging an entire religion,” Preibus told CNN, “but in fact we will try to pinpoint the problems and temporarily suspend [immigrants] from those areas from coming into the United States, until a better vetting system is in place.”

Last year, a radical Islamist husband-and-wife terrorist team carried out a massacre in San Bernardino, murdering 14 people and wounding 21 others at a holiday staff party where one of the killers had worked as an employee.

Public records showed that the wife in a husband and wife terrorist team, had arrived in the U.S. on a K-1 “fiancee visa” after having inexplicably skipped her mandatory pre-visa personal interview at the U.S. Consulate.

The necessary documents that should have been filed were also allegedly missing as well, and the facts that were originally reported, as mentioned above, soon mysteriously disappeared from CNN and other sites, along with all mention of Saudi Arabia, the last country of departure prior to the female terrorist’s arrival in the United States. Both she and her husband were immigrants from Pakistan, although her husband also visited Saudi Arabia.

ISIS Urges Lone Wolf Attack at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

The Da’esh (ISIS) terrorist organization once again is urging Muslims to carry out vehicle terror attacks, this time suggesting the 90th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York would be an “excellent target.”

The latest issue of Rumiyah, the magazine produced by ISIS, included photos of the parade. An article suggesting the event would make a good target also described in graphic detail how to carry out such an attack, explaining that one can achieve the murder of more people with the use of high speed and a large truck. One must carry it out, however, “solely to please Allah.”

Macy’s said in a statement that it is working together closely with the New York Police Department in a security plan for the parade, and that safety is the top priority for the event.

According to the New York Post, however, there’s no credible threat against the parade.

Moreover, New York Police Department officials told reporters at a news conference Monday the department’s been preparing for such an attack ever since the terror group struck the southern French city of Nice. But NYPD is not limiting its defense of the city to only one type of attack.

NYPD Deputy Director of Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism John Miller said the department is planning for the parade “with a complex counterterrorism overlay….

“After the Nice attacks in France where a truck rammed into crowds at Bastille Day celebrations, the NYPD took a very proactive stance,” he said. “The Intelligence Bureau identified 181 locations that rent trucks to the public in the metropolitan area,” he said.

2017 is Israel’s Year of Cyber Security Exports

Monday, November 14th, 2016

Israel’s Ministry of Defense has designated the coming year as the nation’s Year of Cyber Security Exports, as a cyber conference in Tel Aviv prepares to underline the need to protect governments and corporations from cyber terror.

The ministry’s International Defense Cooperation Directorate (SIBAT) is a key partner in the 2016 HLS and Cyber conference which begins Tuesday (Nov. 15) in Tel Aviv.

“We identified specific opportunities and needs in more than 20 countries around the world with whom SIBAT has close ties,” said SIBAT director Mishel Ben Baruch. “We are centralizing a special effort to connect … Israel’s cyber industries to the needs of our friends around the world.”

Delegations from around the world are gathering in Israel for the conference with a keen interest Israeli technology, in particular, its cyber developments.

Each country with which SIBAT works has a need for cyber security solutions, with some of the world’s most advanced, leading countries seeking collaborative research and development, whether through the Ministry of Defense or Israeli industries. There is also great demand for varied solutions, including state cyber protection, as well as training and solutions to defend from a host of organizations.

At the end of every year, SIBAT holds a strategic assessment for the defense world, including an up to date status report identifying future trends in all relevant fields for the target audiences of SIBAT and the Israeli defense industries.

This year, a situational analysis focusing on the defensive and military cyber spheres is also set to take place. The “cyber situational assessment” will identify specific opportunities and needs in over twenty countries across the globe, in which SIBAT has representatives and close ties with military clients, local police and government officials.

“Cyber warfare is combat terrorism,” says Baruch. “Cooperation between nations is necessary to eliminate and reduce the vulnerability and prices paid by countries as a result of cyber-attacks.

“We identified specific opportunities and needs in more than 20 counties around the world, with which SIBAT has close ties.

“The Israeli defense industries have amazing capabilities in research and development and technology, some of which involves traditional defense technologies being adapted for cyber. Our industries have excellent marketing capabilities and the ability to bring clients tailored, flexible solutions.”

A survey of SIBAT customers has shown a wide need and several trends in the field of cyber exports, according to the ministry.

Among the needs identified are the development and supply of ‘cyber vaccines’ for weapons and command and control systems, establishment of an advanced national CERT center, protection of strategic facilities, establishment of SOC centers, training and trainers, cyber crime and advanced cyber services.
