    An Arab activist of the radical leftist NGO B'Tselem who filmed Elor Azariya shooting a wounded terrorist in Hevron in March testified against the soldier at the Jaffa military court on Wednesday morning. ..... Activist's son arrested by Azariya Azariya's lawyer Eyal Baserglick then questioned the Arab activist, revealing a connection between the shoemaker and Azariya. "Is it true that your 17-year-old son Aouni was arrested by the accused (Azariya) and the deputy platoon commander on 2.2.16, even before the incident?," asked Baserglick, mentioning a date in early February predating the incident by just over a month. Abu Shamsiyeh did...

    The family of Abedel Fattah al-Sharif, the Arab terrorist who was neutralized and later killed by IDF soldier Elor Azariya during a terror attack in Hevron in March, buried al-Sharif in Hevron on Saturday, amid demands for revenge. The body of al-Sharif was returned to his family on Friday, before it was examined at the Al Ahli hospital in Hevron. Relatives of the dead terrorist called upon Arab residents of Hevron to join in a mass demonstration during al-Sharif’s funeral, which included demands for revenge and the waving of Hamas flags. The body of al-Sharif was also wrapped in a...

    Security forces and civil administration arrived Thursday morning to the “Shchunat Gal” outpost near Hevron and demolished a fence, foundations for a barn and a building that served as a synagogue. As a result, clashes broke out between the demolition team and locals. Two minors were details but released shortly thereafter. Yisrael Bramson, acting mayor of Kiryat Arba, responded to the destruction of the synagogue: “(Moshe) Ya'alon again demonstrated his attitude to settlements and in to synagogues in particular. This structure in question was not built on Arab territory, only the Likud party would destroy and devastate the land of...

    The family of Abd al-Fattah al-Sharif, the terrorist who was shot by a soldier in Hevron last week after a stabbing attack against Israelis, on Monday threatened the IDF with legal procedures, the Ma’an news agency reported. In a press conference at the Hevron governor’s office, al-Sharif’s uncle Fathi al-Sharif also urged the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its chairman, Mahmoud Abbas, to file legal procedures against Israel at the International Criminal Court, over the incident. He also urged the PA and human rights organizations to push for the release his nephew’s body. On Sunday, it was reported that investigators in...

    Attorney Itamar Ben-Gvir and Lehava director Bentzi Gopshtain, both nationalist activists of the Otzma Yehudit party and residents of Kiryat Arba, contacted the Hevron police on Saturday night in a request for an investigation. The two called on police to investigate the activist of the radical leftist NGO B'Tselem who last Thursday filmed a soldier shooting a wounded Arab terrorist in the city, mere minutes after the terrorist and an accomplice stabbed and wounded a soldier. Following the video footage the soldier was arrested and accused of murder. He has argued he shot the terrorist because he thought he was...

    The Palestinian Authority continues to glorify terrorists, this time in a Ministry of Education ceremony honoring the 18-year-old terrorist who carried out a stabbing attack near the Tomb of the Patriarchs on Monday. MEMRI reports that Kalzar al-Awiwi was a student at the Wadad Natzer al-Din high school for girls and that the Palestinian Ministry of Education published a death notice in which she was described as a shahid or martyr. The ceremony, which took place earlier this week, was held at the school. The head of Hevron's Ministry of Education and Culture, Sami Marwa, was the main speaker, while...

    The European Union on Saturday called on Israel to halt the demolition of illegal Palestinian buildings, some of which are EU-funded, and reiterated its opposition to building Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria. "In the past weeks there have been a number of developments in Area C of the West Bank, which risk undermining the viability of a future Palestinian state and driving the parties yet further apart," the EU diplomatic service said in a statement. It referred to Israel's decision on January 25 to declare 154 hectares (380 acres) of land near Jericho in Judea as state land, with...

    An outpouring of criticism combined with threats to the coalition government followed the eviction on Friday morning of 200 Jews from two buildings in Hevron, which they purchased in full from an Arab buyer and took residence of on Thursday. Immigrant Absorption Minister Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) demanded that the Security Cabinet be convened on the matter, and condemned Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon (Likud) for the decision. Sources close to Ya'alon said Thursday that the purchase did not receive required political approval. "It cannot be that we speak about collective responsibility of all the ministers, and in practice one minister decides...

Footage captures the hapless terrorist running for help as the khefiyeh scarf masking his face burns from the Molotov cocktail.

    The Finance Committee deliberated on Tuesday the transfer of funds to various government offices and authorities. As the debate began, tensions ran high when MK Stav Shafir expressed opposition to the transfer of two million shekels to a local committee in Hevron. MK Zvulun Kalfa responded...saying that “The budget for the settlement of the Israeli population in Hevron should not appear as a separate transfer, but rather as part of the State’s budget, just like all of the other authorities. The time has come for us to internalize that Jewish settlement is just like any other. The residents pay taxes...

    A photographer who claimed to have been assaulted by Jews celebrating Lag Ba’Omer in Hevron has responded to allegations that the incident was fabricated, insisting that he was indeed attacked as he tried to film the event. Emil Salman, who was covering the celebrations in the ancient Judean city on Saturday night, along with veteran Haaretz journalist Amira Hass, told Arutz Sheva the incident lasted “for about 40 seconds”, and began when he tried to approach the Jews’ traditional Lag Ba’Omer bonfire. […] Surprisingly, he said he hadn’t suffered any injuries in the attack, apart from a “pain in the...

    Jewish extremists have gone too far, and it's time to put a stop to them once and for all. Their attacks have become an epidemic, from the north to the south of Israel - and here are just four shocking illustrations from this month alone. Last week, a mob of Jewish youths attacked a group of 11- and 12-year-old schoolgirls, hurling firebombs at their bus near Hevron, in an attack which only failed to cause death or serious injury because attacks against Arabs in the area are so frequent they almost all reinforce their vehicles against rocks and firebombs as...

    Roughly 20 extreme-left activists and Arab protesters arrived at Hevron in Judea this week, but their plans to spark a confrontation with Jewish residents of the “Peace House” and IDF soldiers were upset, as local Arab residents kicked them out of the city. The activists had arrived with cameras and the flags of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), hoping to spark clashes with Jews in Peace House, the Hevron building that in early March finally was recognized by the Supreme Court as having been duly purchased by its Jewish owners, after a six-year-long trial and a ten-year-long struggle. To the...

    Alert Border Police officers thwarted an attempted terrorist attack at the Tomb of the Patriarchs (Ma'arat Hamachpelah) in Hevron on Saturday night. At 2 a.m. an 18-year-old Arab youth from the Abu Sneineh neighborhood of Hevron approached a security checkpoint outside the tomb brandishing a large kitchen knife and screaming. The two men stationed at the checkpoint immediately took action, adhering to the standard procedure for arresting suspected terrorists, which includes firing warning shots. The knife-wielding man was arrested and taken to a local police station. “As soon as they aimed their guns at him, he stopped immediately,” a Border...

    Arabs are the culprits behind the destruction Saturday of agricultural fields operated by the Jews of Hevron, say the local Jews. According to a resident of Hevron, Haim Bleicher, some of the Jews discovered the destruction, which included the uprooting of saplings, during their Sabbath family outings. The plot is part of a larger parcel of land that belonged to Jews until 1929, when local Arabs went on an infamous murderous rampage that drove the Jews out. After Hevron was liberated in 1967, some parts of the parcel were handed over to Jews, while others remain in Arab hands. Last...
