On Friday, an IDF soldier, Sgt. Tomer Hazan (20) of Bat Yam, was kidnapped and killed by a Palestinian Autjority Arab that he knew from his part-time job in a restaurant.

Hazan worked part-time in a restaurant, “Tsachi Meats”, along-side his would-be killer, Nidal Amar (42). His army service was in an Air Force base.


On Friday evening, Amar convinced Hazan to share a taxi with him. The terrorist then took Hazan to an open field north of Siniria (near Azun), killed him, and dumped his body in a well.

On Saturday, the Shabak raided the Amar house in Beit Amin near Kalkilya searching for Hazan. Under interrogation Amar admitted he kidnapped and killed Hazan in an attempt to free his brother, Nur al-Adin Amar, a PLO (Fatah) Tanzim terrorist held in Israeli jail since 2003.

Amar led them to the body, which the air force extricated from the 7 meter well with a helicopter.

Other Amar family members have been arrested and are under interrogation to see if they played a role in the murder. Security personnel are also talking with Nur al-Adin to see his role in the terrorist attack.

The owner of the restaurant claims that Nidal Amar had a valid work permit, which is unusual when a close relative is in jail for terrorist activities. The police and Shabak are checking on the claim.

A senior IDF officer said that Amar did not have a valid work permit and was within pre-1967 Israel illegally, but he was in the process of attempting to legally gaining permanent entry via the “family reunification” program, after marrying an Israeli Arab from Jujilya.

This is the first successful kidnapping of an Israeli soldier since Gilad Shalit was released from Hamas captivity, following a prisoner trade. Many people were concerned that the Shalit deal would bring about a rise in kidnappings, in an attempt to free more terrorists. The IDF has been warning of a recent rise in kidnapping attempts of IDF soldiers.



  1. So tragic, this handsome young warrior’s life was so senselessly and tragically wiped out, but it just goes to show you – NEVER EVER trust anyone, excepting, of course, your mother or father, but NEVER EVER an Arab, they’re all made of the same fecal matter.

  2. “Submission, the religion of Pacification” = “Extortion, the religion of Thieves!”
    Here’s islam’s “holy Message from god” as shown by it’s Founder’s collective words & deeds:
    “I will save humanity by lying to, extorting, torturing, robbing, burning out of their homes, kidnapping & ransoming, enslaving, raping & murdering everyone who even only verbally disagrees with me – and you can, too!”
    The only “religious” part in it, is:
    “God told us to commit these crimes!”

  3. these scum think they could get away with it or they wouldn’t do it. the response from the government should be to take no prisoners. if they murder an israeli shoot them in the head and dump the body in gaza. along with their supporters, that would be the best outcome.

  4. Perhaps the Israeli law or tradition against executing killers should be changed to exclude murderers of Israeli reservists and active duty personnel. Such exclusions would be a warning that such kidnappings and killings would guarrantee executions of the perpetrators.   Other exclusions of various government and medical  personnel would be a warning to those who believe that Israel is a free fire zone.
