Terror Attacks North and South of Jerusalem
by Ezra HaLevi
(IsraelNN.com) Arab terrorists opened fire on a vehicle near the northern entrance to the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat Thursday evening. Two Jews were shot.
A Border Police officer was mortally wounded in the attack. Medics at a nearby checkpoint administered CPR to no avail. The other victim, a 20-year-old female Border Police officer, was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital in critical condition from a gunshot wound to the chest.
Arab terrorists also infiltrated the Gush Etzion Jewish collective of Kibbutz Kfar Etzion Thursday night. They entered Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz's Mekor Chayim high school while the boarding school's counselors were having a meeting. The terrorists, one with a gun, were dressed in IDF uniforms and entered the school's study hall, according to Kfar Etzion resident and former MK Chanan Porat. A counselor realized they were terrorists, drew his personal firearm and opened fire. Another joined and a struggle ensued. The terrorists stabbed the two before being shot dead.
Both are in stable condition - one with a deep stab wound to the shoulder and another with a less-serious head wound. They were brought to Hadassah Hospital for treatment.
Residents of the Kibbutz were told to remain in their homes for fear that other terrorists were still present in the community.
The IDF commended the counselors, saying their bravery prevented what would have been a major terrorist attack.
Fatah's Al-Aksa Brigades terrorist group announced that it carried out both attacks.
A large number of security forces are combing the sites of both attacks. A manhunt is being carried out in the Arab villages north of the capital, including checkpoints and the use of IDF choppers.
And this is called “Peace”.
Brothers Hamas delighted!
Israel just need to give them more land for peace... barf....
Shows what happens when people are allowed to fight back. Had this happened in America all counselors and a bunch of the kids would be dead.
If any Palestinian/Arab civilians become injured or killed incidental to an Israeli response to these attacks that will be the lead and the gist of any U. S. MSM report emanating from this incident.
sad, scary, true.
Disgust! That all I have for those who seek to destroy Israel. Israeli’s are and will remain in my prayers daily.
Wow! My wife and I were there for a wedding last March.
I didn't realize Steinsaltz had anything to do with the place. I probably would have been disappointed not to have learned something from him while I was there. I heard him speak once in Fair Lawn, NJ, and while much of what he said then went over my head, it was obvious to me that I was in the presence of greatness.
give them some land. they’ll stop. they promise!
I haven’t noticed the US MSM being particularly anti-Israel or pro-Palestinian. Of course, the Middle Eastern media is a whole nuther story.
Well, just to cite one particularly outrageous example of anti-Israeli MSM coverage, I hope you recall the staged Reuters photos of "Green Helmet Guy" during the 2006 war against the Hezzies in Lebanon.
