Family of Hebron Terrorist Threatens to Sue IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria at ICC

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017

The family of Hebron terrorist Abd Fatah el-Sharif issued a statement threatening Israel and IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria on Wednesday following the conviction of the young combat medic for the shooting death of el-Sharif after he and another terrorist had attacked IDF soldiers in the city in March 2016.

El-Sharif, who had stabbed a soldier, was shot and lying on the ground as Azaria, age 20, had finished attending to his victim. The second terrorist had already been shot and killed by other soldiers while trying to stab another.

Azaria walked over and shot el-Sharif at point-blank range, killing him.

The terrorist’s family vowed after Azaria’s conviction on charges of manslaughter they would ensure the soldier received the “maximum penalty,” Israel’s Channel 10 television news reported.

The stabber’s family told reporters they intend to turn to the International Criminal Court at The Hague over the case, saying “at the ICC, we will make sure this soldier receives the maximum penalties for his crimes.”

But it’s not even clear whether the ICC has any jurisdiction over such a case, let alone over any Israeli soldier whose actions have already been judged and addressed in a sovereign Israeli court of law.

In the wake of his conviction on Wednesday, Azaria faces sentencing by the IDF military court next month. He could face up to 20 years in prison.

Numerous lawmakers are calling for President Reuven Rivlin to consider issuing a presidential pardon in the case, which has torn the country apart.

Terrorist Funerals in Ramallah, Jerusalem After Israel Returns Bodies to Families

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

Funerals were held Saturday for two Palestinian Authority terrorists whose bodies were held by Israel until late Friday, when they were returned to their families in Ramallah and Jerusalem, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news site.

Mu’en Nasser al-Din Abu Qara’a, 23, was shot and killed by Israeli soldiers November 3 near Ofra while attempting a stabbing attack at the entrance to the Jewish town. The attacker was “armed with a knife attempted to stab an Israeli soldier guarding a bus stop” according to an IDF spokesperson, but was neutralized before he was able to hurt anyone.

Hammad Khader Al-Sheikh, 21, was killed while carrying out a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on December 14. Armed with a screwdriver, the attacker approached a group of Israeli Border Guard Police officers stationed near the Austrian Hospice hospital and stabbed one of the officers in the head.

Both were hailed on the website of the ruling Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza as “martyrs.”

The Palestinian Red Crescent Society said in a brief statement that the bodies of the two men were delivered at el-Jeb checkpoint and were then transferred to “Palestine Medical Complex” in Ramallah.

Israel has been selective about which bodies of terrorists are returned to families since the October 2015 outbreak of the “Jerusalem Intifada,” as it is referred to on the website of the Izz a-Din al-Qassam military wing of Hamas.

The families are held to a number of conditions before they are allowed to receive the bodies of terrorists killed while trying to kill Israelis, including a promise to limit the number of attendees at the funeral and an agreement to deployment of Israeli soldiers at the proceedings. Terrorist funerals have long been forums for fierce incitement against Israel and vigorous recruitment sites for anti-Israel activists and new terrorist trainees.

IDF soldiers and Shin Bet intelligence agents arrested five wanted terror suspects over the course of this weekend. Among the suspects was an Arab terrorist on his way to carry out a stabbing attack on Israelis.

On Saturday afternoon, IDF soldiers foiled a terrorist attack in Samaria at the Dir-Sharaf intersection.

The forces captured a Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist armed with a knife, who confessed that he intended to carrying out a terror attack.

In the wee hours of Sabbath (Saturday) morning, three wanted fugitives were arrested in the Arab village of Ya’abad, located in southwestern Jenin. The area is patrolled by the Menashe brigade.

The three were taken into custody in connection with accusations of involvement with shootings aimed at IDF soldiers on Friday night. Forces also discovered and seized the vehicle with which the shootings were carried out.

An additional arrest was made in the Hebron suburb of Yatta, in Judea. IDF soldiers seized a cache of weapons parts and arrested the terrorist responsible for their repair and maintenance.
