IDF searches for 2 terrorists in Eli - March 2, 2016

There was an infiltration and terror attack in the Binyamin region’s community of Eli, in the Yovel neighborhood, on Wednesday morning around 5:20 AM, according to a TPS report.

One person, age 30, was stabbed and lightly-to-moderately injured, as he protected his wife and 5 children from the two Arabs attackers.


The terrorists waited outside the family’s home, and when the husband opened the door, the terrorists tried to force their way in, hitting and stabbing the husband with a knife and clubs.

The wounded man managed to push them out. The terrorists then ran.

Security forces began looking for the attackers.

Apparently thinking it would cause confusion, the terrorist smashed car windows as they ran.

6:13 AM: Two terrorists were confirmed shot and killed around 6:07 AM. They were found hiding in the courtyard of the Mikveh.

The community’s Rapid Response Team and IDF soldiers opened fire as the terrorists tried to make a run for it from their hiding spot.

Searches continue for any possible additional terrorists.

6:34 AM: The wounded man has been taken to Shaarei Tzedek hospital. He’s now listed as stable and lightly injured from the knife and club wounds.

7:17 AM: The two 17-year-old terrorists were from a village next to Shechem (Nablus).

IDF trackers also found a gun wrapped in plastic and ready to use on the path the two took inside the community. They lost it while they were running, along with one of their sneakers.

  1. To all those people living in the Land of Oz .
    We are in a World wide Islamic Cultural War or 1400-year-old Jihad.
    We each see a different parts of it in the world and if you put all the violent parts together it adds up to only one cause: a 1400 year old Islamic Cultural War. It is the same as that joke of four blind men touching the elephant.
    The names of the Arabs and Muslim Terrorists change but the behavior has been always the same for the last 1400 years.

    It is not about land, rights or settlements, water or being politically left or right. If it were it would have been solved long ago. It has not.

    It is Cultural War that means Islamic Culture must destroy Western Culture or Western Culture must destroy Islamic Culture.
    It is an Islamic Genocidal Cultural War, just like the American/Indian Wars that ended in Genocide. This time we are the Indians.

    Muslims have been fighting each other and others for 1400 years or more. There is no reason that it will stop now. If we want peace we must change Islamic Culture.

    The book "Culture and Conflict”, explains it clearly. It shows that current cultural conditions in the Arab Middle East will not support internal development, advancement or peace until there is a major cultural change. “It is critical that we understand our enemy. That is step one in every conflict,” RR. Philip Carl Salzman, INSB # 978-1-59102-587-0.

  2. unreal. among too many reactions, it strikes me… an only in israel moment…. following trauma and heroism of cinematic proportions…still… “it’s 9 am, and we haven’t made it to school yet.” am yisrael chai! ach kmo she’hu amar… zeh hazman…

  3. I think that this is exactly what they want to provoke, and that is why it so strong they won't get this reaction. The Arabs love to get killed, get damaged and with that reach all the frontpages, making the Israelies seem så violent and inhuman. That is why it is so extremely difficult to deminish this uggliness. The muslim norms are so far away from the westernway of experiencing, so opposite to the Jewish ways, and they realy know how to misuse these.

  4. Marike Keuning Muhi Israel cannot win in the situation, so she really should start thinking about offense to prevent attacks and deterents. I mean, first of all, do not ever return bodies of terrorists, they should all be used as organ donors to save Jews. This would stop the constant daily attacks, but we have a gov't that is weak on security and puts more Jews at risk every day.
    Israel should make it clear on the national arena the hatred taught in to the palis, where the world can understand that ISIS and palis are one in the same, just different names.
    Land should be taken with every attack and it should be made clear that the consequences to attacks will be Israel taking more land and developing it for Jews, this also would deter.
    As for world opinion and the Arab PR, Israel will not win. When IDF didn't rape women during the Gaza war they were called racist by the palis and the world.
    I wish we had a leader that could think out of the box and use something to deter, but my hopes don't matter in the real world and Israelis are too stupid to remember they voted for the same liar who was weak on security before and don't know why they revoted for the same person again and again and expected different results.

  5. For Amnesty International that unilaterally blames Israel for using deadly force you if our enemies weren't trying to kill us we wouldn't be killing them as part of a miltary/police operation just as any other responsible Western Country would do to protect their citizens. If you think its going to be Hollywood where someone gets out there and fight the knife wielding terrorist barehanded to subdue him; you are dreaming or can come here and try it yourself. I've read Maans propaganda that these are children being murdered. Make no mistake, the PLO is honoring them fully on Facebook all the way up to Generals in the PA and are incited to take action by Mahmud Abbas to 'protect Al Aksa from the Jews' (falsehood). They are fully responsible for leading them to their deaths.

  6. Sure, then, we'd be exactly like them, beasts. "Never again," means we also do not do anything like this. We are civilized. We are Jews and must lead by example. If we would do what they do, then, the world's accusations would truly be justified.

  7. Where is there an understanding of humanity by these Muslims? They represent a culture of death. Israel and its people represent light and joy to the world. Israel is a beacon of light to the world. Fr. Charles J. Simones a retired Greek Orthodox priest in the USA.
