Sereis Of Attacks Hits Israeli Targets Across West Bank, Jerusalem. Israeli Forces Respond With Multiple Raids

Donate

On the evening of December 9, seven people were wounded in a drive-by shooting near the Israeli settlement of Ofra in the West Bank.

One of those wounded was a 21-year-old pregnant woman who was in serious condition after sustaining wounds to her upper body. She was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem, where doctors delivered her baby prematurely.

On December 12, the three-day-old baby was pronounced dead, his name was Amiad Yisrael.

The rest of the victims were also evacuated to a number of hospitals in Jerusalem, including a 21-year-old man who sustained moderate wounds to his lower limbs and a 22-year-old man was also moderately wounded. The other victims are two 16-year-old girls and two 16-year-old boys, all of whom sustained light wounds.

Israel’s Defense Forces initiated a series of raids in the city of Ramallah, where Palestinians clashed with the Israeli troops. Medics said six Palestinians were wounded.

Furthermore, one of the suspected shooters was tracked and killed. He was confirmed as a member of Hamas, as it claimed responsibility of the attack.

“Hamas announces with great pride the death of its martyr Salih Omar Barghouti, the perpetrator of the heroic Ofra operation,” the group wrote on its official Twitter account early on December 13th.

Barghouti, 29 and a resident of Kobar, a village near Ramallah, was killed December 12 evening after he tried to attack troops while escaping arrest and was shot, the Shin Bet security service said, adding that he was believed to have carried out the Ofra attack.

4 other people suspected of being involved in the attack were arrested, the Shin Bet said.

Another Palestinian suspect in an earlier shooting of 2 Israelis in a West Bank industrial park on October 7 was located and killed by Israeli Special Forces, also overnight on December 12.

On Decembee 13, a man stabbed and wounded two Israeli police troopers in East Jerusalem and was shot dead, police said. His identity was not immediately clear.

On the same day  a Palestinian shot and wounded four people in the West Bank. Israel’s Magen David Adom ambulance service said three people were in critical condition following the incident which also happened near Ofra.

North of Jerusalem, 2 IDF soldiers were killed and another one was injured.

IDF are undertaking operations to track down the suspects, thus the story is still developing.

“We will bring all terrorists and those who dispatch them to justice. Abu Mazen (Abbas), who finances the terrorists’ families, must also pay the price,” Israeli Intelligence Minister Israel Katz said on Twitter.

Whether there would be a larger-scale response by Israel is yet to be seen, however it appears that since Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also assumed the post of Prime Minister, hawkish voices towards the Palestinians seem to have been relatively silenced.

    Lets compose a list of the thousands of Palestinian civilians killed, injured, maimed or are prisoners of conscience. Lets talk about Israel’s use of internationally banned munitions like while phosphorous and cluster bombs. Lets talk about Israeli snipers giving one another high-fives as they target and shoot Medics and other civilians. Lets talk about how Israeli children write horrendous greetings on the bombs that are about to be loaded of F-16’s. Destined to be dropped in tightly congested civilian neighborhoods of Gaza. How about talking about Israel abducting ( arresting) children and teenagers on a reagular basis, just to terrorize and traumatize them. I could go on and on.

    Lets not forget to talk about Israel being in direct, blatant violation of 70 U.N. Resolutions, the last ne being Resolution 2334. Or that it violates the Geneva Conventions, and all international civil norms. And lets mention how the U.S. has shielded Israel many, many times at the U.N. using its veto power.

    The People of Gaza are surrounded and blockaded by a nefarious military occupation imposed on them unjustly, with serious malice and is nothing short of genocide. Gaza is the largest open air prison/concentration camp in the history of human kind.

    95% of international Jews support or are loyal to the Zionist entity known as Israel, so thus they are okay with its crimes against humanity. No empathy nor human compassion can be found among this group. Just vengeance, annihilation and deceit. Why is it Jews have been kicked out of every country in which they resided in great numbers? This pressing issue the rest of freedom, peace seeking humanity needs to take care of.

      Well said my friend.

      Half of humanity has taken care of the Jew problem via dejudification. Including most of Palestine’s neighbors. Tolorating Judaism is a flaw of Christianity because of the nexus between the two. Even though Christ was a vocal anti Judaic. And their thologies are diametically opposed. With a few exceptions, the Jew vermin reside exclusively in Christendom. This needs to change. Chriestendom needs to be cleared of Jews by outlawing this evil cult. And closing and demolishing the synagogues and yeshivas.

      Whew….such vitriol Hisham…you and your ilk are exactly why jews think that they had enough of your Christian ‘hospitality’ world wide…
      Your racist and religious bigotry is the reason..
      You have been persecuting Jews since you made that Jewish bastard a deity…since then your ancestors have taken advantage of the jew…Use and dispose at will…
      Thats the reason that you are getting it back..
      And you’re lucky that you are being treated the way you are because you serve a lot worse…
      you and the rest of your vile friends…

      • Concrete Mike

        Screw you buddy. I dont blame jews i blame your morronic government and its morronic ideology.

        You people in israel are fucken thieves, these are not your lands.

        Your religion has been highkacked for politcal purposes, beware your masters are leading you to slaughter. beware!!

        This isnt about religion its about thieves stealing someone elses homeland!!

        Your part of the comment…is that a threat?? What are you going to do little internet boy??

        Bring it, I am affraid of no one!!!

  • FlorianGeyer

    I care as much about the Israeli’s as Israel cares about the Palestinians whose land was and still is being stolen.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    Palestinians need to unite and get rid of the Zionist scum. They need to emulate the Vietcong or the Algerian FLN is a full scale war of national liberation. The Zionist parasites are all foreign vermin in the region and will cut and run when the cost of occupation becomes too high. Demographics and regional power balance now favors the Palestinians.

    • verner

      don’t get all tangled up in sofistry and just concentrate on israel and you’ll be fine. don’t need anything else than israel and israel and israel since israel is the criminal guilty of crimes against humanity, ethnic cleansing, mass murders, land theft and in general behaving in such a way that all rights of a sovereign country are forfeited and thus it should be closed down for good. all countries that at one time recognized israel did so on the understanding that the new country would behave like a responsible non-thieving, non-murdering country and since israel is all of that they should be sorely disappointed and retract their respective recognitions.

      can’t have it any other way!

  • H Eccles

    You’d think from reading the above article that only Palestinians do the attacking and only Israelis ever do the dying.

    • verner

      yep, while it is actually the other way round – israelis shoot women and children and starve them to death in the concentration camp called Gaza, which in all likelihood is no better than ravensbruck, theresienstadt or bergen belsen or even auschwitz- the world should be ashamed that it allows this to go on!!

  • Tommy Jensen

    Evidence that Hamas, Palestina, Iran, Hezbollah, Assad, Germany and anti-semitism and selfhating jews are trying to wipe 6 million completely off the map of Israel, but they will not succeed.

    • verner

      I think you should look at israel as an experiment that lasted for about 100 years and which most obviously is a very failed experiment and it is thus time to discontinue what is known as israel, return the stolen land to the rightful owners which is the Palestinians and the israeli thieves can attempt to relocate to, say the disunited states of morons. it’s quite obvious that you can’t have the inhabitants of israel as a co-partner in the world affairs, due to their own doings, and thus the world should hurry up and de-recognize what is now known as israel, close their respective embassies, forbid financial support from various jewish sources outside of israel, since israel clearly can be termed a terrorist-state (and as is well known financing of terrorist organisations is forbidden under most national laws) and then build the BDS-movement into behemoth anti-israel organisation that will suffocate the country to kingdom com. can it be easier since about 90% of the worlds population would subscribe to the plan.

      simple as all that so get on with it.

  • Smaug

    There won’t be a large scale response, this is pretty routine over there.

    • Concrete Mike

      It seems like a 2 way street. At one point someone on both sides must stop this foolishness.

      The longer this lasts the harder it will be to resolve as the situation polarises.

      I suspect corruption at the highest levels on both sides is hindering diplomacy.

      Why must we focus on tribal warfare??
      Together we could conquer space, sadly were too busy killing each other, blaming fuxking jews muslims anglos french russians chinese for all the wrongs in the world.

      Look at your hands….there like mine, 4 fingers thumbs, some swirly lines everywhere. We are all the same…a little different but still all the same.

      FUCK TRIBALISM
