The initial findings of the investigation into the terrorist massacre in the Israeli town of Itamar in Samaria Friday night show that the Fatah Freedom Fighters stabbed the Fogel family's sleeping three year old in the heart and slashed the throat of his three-month-old sister.
The IDF and police forces are conducting widespread searches in the vicinity of the community since the barbaric terrorist murder of five members of the Fogel family in their home on Friday night.
It is not yet clear how many terrorists took part in the massacre. About 20 Arabs have been arrested up to now.
One area in which the IDF is concentrating its investigations is whether there were any intelligence warnings of terrorist plans before the attack that might have alerted residents.
The community of Itamar has had no terrorist attacks since 2002, when an advanced protection and security system called the Special Security Area was installed. The electronic system, which includes varied methods of observation and a wired fence, is kept in repair by the regional authority rather than the IDF.
In addition to an electronic fence surrounding the community, there is an inner, coiled wire fence. The community is allotted six non-army security personnel from a recognized security firm who are on patrol all the time. All signals go automatically to a central operations room in the town staffed by two of these guards, and in addition there is a company of soldiers on the adjoining hill.
The IDF investigation of the attack has discovered that at 20:59, terrorists entered the community. They jumped over the fence and an alert sounded. The guard on duty went to the spot from which the warning was heard, but saw no evidence of infiltration and therefore, made the erroneous decision that an animal had activated the electronic fences warning signal.
A security person who was in the vicinity said that since the fence was not cut, the guard thought there was no infiltration and did not inform the IDF unit that was less than a kilometer away.
The terrorists first entered one home, which was empty. They found a weapon there, which they do not seem to have used. A group of youngsters was having a Sabbath evening party at the Fogel house nearby, and at 22:20 they left, along with the Fogels 12-year-old daughter, for an activity at the local Bnei Akiva youth group.
Between 22:20 and 22:30 the terrorists entered the house through the living room picture window, did not notice the 6-year-old boy sleeping on the couch and continued on to the bedroom where they slashed the throats of the father and newborn baby who were sleeping there. The mother came out of the bathroom and was stabbed on its threshold. The evidence shows that she tried to fight the terrorists.
They then slashed the throat of the 11-year old-son who was reading in bed. They did not notice the 2-year old asleep in his bed, but murdered the 3-year old with two stabs to his heart. After that, they locked the door, exited through the window and escaped.
Exactly two hours after the infiltration, there was another warning signal from the same spot on the fence, as the terrorists left the way they had come. Once again, the patrol did not identify the source of the signal as infiltration.
The 12-year-old daughter returned home at 00:30 and found the door locked. She asked a neighbor, Rabbi Yaakov Cohen, of the Itamar Yeshiva, to help her. He brought a weapon with him once he noticed tracks and mud near the house. The two woke up the 6-year old sleeping in the living room by calling through the window and when he opened the door, the Rabbi returned to his home.
When she entered the bedrooms, the young daughter saw the horrific bloodsoaked scene and ran out of the house screaming. The neighbor ran back and fired several shots in the air to alert security personnel. Within a short time, large police and IDF forces arrived and began intensive searches to see if the terrorists were still in the community. At 03:30 a.m., military trackers discovered footprints leading to the Arab village of Avrata.
Sky Riders Israeli UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), continued the search Saturday morning.
The IDF Chief of Staff, General Benny Gantz, arrived at the familys home during the morning hours and said: We will not rest until the murderers are in our hands. This is a bestial act perpetrated by barbarians. It is impossible to grasp the horrendous scene before us. We are working non-stop on the intelligence and operational fronts.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak held a situation meeting in IDF Tel Aviv headquarters. Attending were the Chief of Staff, ISA head Yuval Diskin and other high ranking IDF intelligence and security personnel. Barak instructed those present to use every means at their disposal to find the murderers as quickly as possible. He called on the leaders of the Palestinian Authority to condemn the murders and on the Judea and Samaria Regional Authority Heads to exercise restraint.
ROP killing babies.
Burn in hell, goat humpers!
Islam is pure EVIL.
This is the kind of atrocity that calls not only for the heads of the perpetrators, but for those of their immediate and extended families as well.
Coming to America if people don’t wise up very fast .
islam is lucifer’s religion,that is why they hate jews, they are Gods chosen people, I’ve never read the koran ( I dont need to, I can understand it by the actions of its followers ) this will not end until Jesus Christ ends it,and I know those children are in his arms right now.
“made the erroneous decision that an animal had activated the electronic fences warning signal.”
Evil lives among us.
“Coming to America”...are you kidding? We have crap like this happen everyday! Only difference is that the creeps would have raped everybody before they left!
Obama and his Regime keep telling us that these Muslim fanatics are peaceful people. Ask the Muslim crier at the King hearings.
What evil cowards those people are - to deliberately and with malice, harm a child.
Prayer is SO vital - Please pray for Israel and the people of His Holy Land.
Waiting for Obambi / Hildebeast to condemn these atrocities...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
We do not experience all that the Israelis do.
Prayers lifted for the surviving children of this family. I am speechless with horror over this.
Update: 38 min. ago “the White House” condmened the murders.
What an eloquent building. Someone wrote it while Bambi is on the golf course.
It's a very dull read. I've read part of it trying to compile a list of violent verses. I never could get through the whole thing. Here are a few violent verses that are good to know (to combat the 'Islam is a religion of peace' myth):
Surah 9:5 (The famous verse of the Sword) "But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the Infidels wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them..."
Surah 8:39 "And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere..."
Surah 2:216 "Fighting is prescribed for you..."
Surah 8:12 "I (Allah) will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them."
And regarding 'peaceful' Muslims:
Surah 4:95 "Not equal are those believers who sit (at home) and receive no hurt, and those who strive and fight in the cause of God with their goods and their persons. God hath granted a grade higher to those who strive and fight with their goods and persons than to those who sit (at home) Unto all (in faith) hath God promised good: but those who strive and fight hath He distinguished above those who sit (at home) by a special reward."
Surah 47:35 "Be not weary and fainthearted, crying for peace, when ye should be uppermost: for God is with you, and will never put you in loss for your deeds."
