Hundreds of Gaza Arabs Riot at Erez Border Crossing

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Hundreds of Arab residents threw stones and burned tires at the Erez border crossing with northern Gaza at midday on Tuesday.

Some 200 Palestinian Arabs rioted in a possible attempt to storm the crossing, similar to the breach in the security fence that occurred late Monday and two days earlier, on Saturday as well.

Civilian contractors working on Monday to repair the damage from Saturday’s breach of the fence were attacked Monday by Palestinian Arab terrorists from the Gaza side of the border.

Security personnel closed the Erez crossing Tuesday in response to the violence and IDF soldiers at the scene used riot dispersal methods to address the situation.

Jerusalem on Lockdown, Prepares to Defend Against Terror

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Neighborhoods in eastern Jerusalem were placed on full lockdown following a chain of mass casualty terror attacks Tuesday morning.

All roads leading into Jerusalem were closed effective 11 am, until further notice.

The security measures came in response to a set of at least three nearly simultaneous Arab terrorist attacks that left more than 17 civilians wounded. At least five are in critical condition, and half a dozen more are seriously wounded.

Dozens more are badly traumatized after the attacks which took place on Bus #78 and in two locations in the very heart of the city, on Malchei Yisrael Street.

Another attempted terror attack at the Damascus Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem was unsuccessful, however, and left only the terrorist dead.

Israeli Chabad Yeshiva Students Firebombed in NYC

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

Two Chabad-Lubavitch yeshiva students were attacked in New York City this past Friday afternoon, COLlive reports.

The students were part of a group that had boarded a sbuway heading from Brooklyn into Manhattan to carry out weekly mitzvah assignments with Jewish business owners and others in the city.

Two 19-year-old students who requested anonymity told COLlive the attack occurred while they were walking on West 37th Street near Ninth Avenue.

A brother of one of the students said, “A firebomb was thrown at one of them. It exploded and there was fire. They were shocked. An Israeli woman was walking by and ran over to check if they were okay.

“Thank G-d, it missed them and landed on the pavement,” he added. “It was a male who had thrown it at them, but they were only able to see his back because he ran away. They didn’t hear him shout or say anything.”

This is the first reported attack on Jews or Israelis in New York since the start of the recent escalation in Arab terror in Israel.

The New York Police Department has accordingly raised security in Jewish neighborhoods. Residents in Crown Heights commented they were seeing more officers on patrol this past week than had been seen during the high holy days, COLlive noted.

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

The young terrorist-in-training was overpowered by several Border Guard Police officers and arrested. He was transferred to security personnel for questioning.

No one was injured in the attempted attack.

UPDATE: Another Stabbing Attack in Old City of Jerusalem [video]

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

For the second time in less than a week, a Palestinian Arab terrorist — this time a teenage girl — stabbed an Israeli Jew at the Lion’s Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

An unidentified 18-year-old Palestinian Arab female attacker stabbed the 25-year-old male victim in the back after she sneaked up behind him Wednesday morning at around 10:30 am, Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said.

An armed Israeli man who was passing nearby immediately neutralized the terrorist. “The Israeli man responded quickly by drawing his weapon and shooting her,” Rosenfeld said.

The area was cordoned off by police and a search was launched for other possible terrorists in the area.

The stabbing victim was treated at the scene by paramedics before being evacuated to a hospital in the capital. He is listed in fair condition and is conscious.

The terrorist was also taken to a city hospital and is listed in serious condition. Police are examining the possibility that she may have been operating as part of a terror cell, according to Rosenfeld.

On Saturday night, a 19-year-old Palestinian Arab stabbed and shot to death two rabbis, and wounded the wife and baby son of one of them, also near the Lion’s Gate.

The wounded rabbi’s wife ran down an alley to summon help – with a knife still in her shoulder – while the terrorist continued shooting into a crowd of tourists.

The murderer, allegedly a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization, was shot and killed by an Israeli police officer.

Just a few hours later, a 15-year-old Jewish boy was stabbed by another Palestinian Arab terrorist as he walked down the street a few blocks away from the Old City walls.

Israeli police spotted the terrorist with the knife still in his hand and shot and killed him.
