Samaria Terror Attack Foiled by Alert IDF Soldiers

Monday, February 22nd, 2016

An Arab terrorist attempted to stab IDF soldiers at the Bitot Junction south of Shechem.

The would-be attacker charged at the forces armed with a knife, the IDF spokesperson’s unit said in a statement, but was quickly stopped in his tracks.

“The soldiers fired warning shots in the air, preventing the attack,” according to an IDF spokesperson.

In fact, the would-be attacker turned tail and ran. He did manage to escape, however.

“Forces are now conducting searches in the area for the assailant who fled the scene.”

Arab MK Describes Terrorists As “Precious Sons”

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

By Alexander J. Apfel/TPS

One of the three Arab MKs who visited the families of terrorists last Tuesday who had murdered or attempted to murder Israeli civilians during the recent wave of violence attempted to justify the actions of the terrorists on Palestinian television yesterday.

Basel Ghattas was exposed by Palestinian Media Watch during an interview on Palestinian TV in which he appeared to demonstrate that the visit had more to do with supporting the terrorists than merely securing the release of their bodies as originally stated by the three MKs who visited the families.

“The day Arab MPs abstain from visiting Martyrs’ families who have lost their precious sons in the turmoil of the struggle against the oppressive occupation – they did not go to kill or attempt to kill for criminal reasons or illegally – the day we abstain from visiting Martyrs’ families, we will have to vacate our [parliamentary] chairs and leave the keys at home,” Ghattas said.

Originally, the three Arab MKs from the Joint List who visited the families sought to justify their visits by claiming that they were standing with the families in support of their campaign to pressure the Israeli government into releasing the terrorists’ bodies.

Indeed, following a decision taken by the Ethics Committee on Monday which banned Haneen Zoabi and Basel Ghattas from Knesset sessions and Jamal Zahalka for two months, the three issued a joint statement rejecting the decision and restated their primary goal being “the immediate release of the bodies held by the police even after this decision.”

Moreover, Joint List Chairman Ayman Odeh also attempted to justify the visits on humanitarian grounds. “The meeting last week was humanitarian and moral. The bodies [of the terrorists] must be released and buried immediately. We must also denounce the Israeli government, which is holding the bodies in freezers,” he said at a Joint List meeting.

Update: IDF Soldier Injured, Terrorist Killed in Ashkelon Terror Attack

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

An IDF soldier was stabbed in an Arab terror attack early Sunday morning near the central bus station in Ashkelon.

The soldier, age 20, sustained light wounds to his upper body. He was treated at the scene and then evacuated to Ashkelon’s Barzilai Medical Center by paramedics from the Magen David Adom emergency medical response service.

The Israel Police spokesperson for the Southern Regional District said the soldier remained conscious at all times.

A second soldier saw the stabbing and immediately ran after the suspect, who fled, but was chased down and then shot by his pursuer who had quickly closed the distance and neutralized him.

Ashkelon police say they are checking the reason behind the attack but it is believed the stabbing was driven by nationalist — terrorist — motivations.

The attacker was taken to Barzilai Medical Center, where a spokesperson told journalists he is in “very serious condition.” Security personnel are still investigating to determine his identity. There is a possibility that the suspect may be a refugee of Sudanese or Eritrean origin, according to local sources.

Update: 2 PM: Barzilai hospital reports that the stabber has died from his wounds.

Israeli Dragnet Surrounds Ramallah After Terror Attack by PA Police Officer

Monday, February 1st, 2016

Israeli security teams surrounded Ramallah overnight; according to a local source, only residents who could prove their status were allowed in and out of the city.

The soldiers sealed off the Palestinian Authority capital following the shooting of three Israeli soldiers by a PA police officer.

The dragnet came in response to an attack on Israeli soldiers earlier in the day by one of the members of the personal security team for Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas.

The officer drove up from Ramallah to the IDF checkpoint next to the Jewish community of Beit El. He got out of his car holding a handgun and shot three Israeli soldiers at point-blank range, seriously wounding two and a third less severely. Other soldiers immediately returned fire and killed the terrorist on site.

Less than two hours later, Arab terrorists attacked Israeli vehicles driving along Highway 443 – the old Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway – next to the Dor Alon gas station on the road. Although stone-throwing attacks on moving vehicles can be and have often been deadly, in this case no Israelis were injured.

Also Sunday evening, a young Arab was arrested after soldiers noticed he was acting in a suspicious manner near the Gush Etzion Junction. The wannabe jihadist was armed a heavy iron chisel, which he later confessed he was preparing to use in an attack on Israelis.
