Two Arab terrorists opened fire on Israeli civilians and soldiers at the bus stop near Kiryat Arba on Monday morning, around 6:45 AM, according to Hatzalah Yo”sh.

The attack happened near the Elias junction, which is near the entrance to Kiryat Arba.


The IDF reports that the two terrorists, who were armed with a pistol and a rifle, were shot and killed by IDF troops guarding the bus stop.

One IDF soldier was lightly wounded.

A half hour later, there was a 2nd terror attack at the same location.

The northern entrance to Kiryat Arba is currently closed to traffic.

Three, possibly four soldiers have been injured altogether in the attacks.

  1. As far as I know we have been killing "jookim" (cockroaches) for generations and they are still here ! by the millions ! so instead of suggesting the predictable (just kill'em) maybe a"real" Jew from Tulane universty no less, can become a Trump by finding a real solution ? (you know those liberal scientists an Weitzman institute found a permanent ants solution ?)

  2. Ora Cooper If a permanent "ant" solution has been found it hasn't made its way to America. We are infested with ants I never saw or heard of in my early years, brought here by all the internation trade… they come in fruits, vegetables, plants, furniture, clothes, there is nothing they can't transport in. The only thing we don't have so far are the killer "army" ants and I expect them any time. We can't get rid of them, especially the fire ants and they are deadly themselves when children and the elderly, even healthy people, trip and fall into their beds. They attack and kill livestock during the birth process before the newborn is free of the placenta…. no there has been no "permanent" cure for ants. For every bed destroyed, two more appear.

  3. Close all the borders for two weeks every time there is an attack… no travel for anything. When they are reopened, the first attack results in three weeks closure, and damn the international world. They are not having to live with it. The EU is closing borders to stop Muslims from entering now, but they have already allowed the enemy within. Soon they will see what Israel is experiencing. The only sure way to stop murder at the border is to close it. If the Palestinians won't catch and punish and condemn their own killers, let the Palestinians alone live with them.

  4. Mark Brecker Hey ,I meant Trump as a rich man not as a good man .. Trump is danguerous! but so are the rest of the Repulicans who brought his like in… when you sow hate you get haters! (haters for some reason alway "print" ??)

  5. Alan Kardon I mean non of the above "quick and seemingly easy" solutions! are not good! In the 1800 we cut the whole arm if the finger got infected, now we know better, We have in israel Druse who are muslims and serve with honor ! the highest % of soldiers per any other group, and far far more than Orthodox ! Blanket solution are for the 15 centuary !

  6. Israel has 556 prisoners szerving life turms. Every time there is a attack on Israeli Civilions one of these lifers sould:

    excape and disapear forever,

    or be killed while trying to excape,

    or gets killed in a fight with another prisoner,

    or commits sueside,

    or has a fatial industrial accident

    or aquires a fatal medical problem..

    Think of the expence Israel has now of feeding and guarding all of these lifer prisoners.
