Schoolchildren in Beitar Illit. Archive: Sept. 4, 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.
