Back to the 2nd Intifada and Palestinian remote-control bombs. No leads to killer-terrorists

It was an improvised explosive device set off remotely by Palestinian terrorists which caused the death of 17-year old Rina Shnerb and injured her father, Rabbi Eytan, 46 and brother, Dvir, 19. It blew up on the path they were taking on Friday morning, Aug. 23, down to the popular Danny Spring nature reserve outside Dolev in Binyamin. The first stages of the investigation into the attack reveal that a squad of two or three terrorists took the time to plant the bomb expertly on the path in the early hours of the morning. They then withdrew to the terraced olive-grove slopes overlooking the spring and watched for trippers to arrive. When the three Shnerbs started along the path, they detonated the bomb and made for their escape car. This squad is still at large.

Rina out front took the main force of the blast and shrapnel. Rabbi Eytan, although hurt, called for help and tried first aid to save his daughter and then to staunch the bleeding from his son’s serious injuries. Paramedics who were soon on the scene toiled to save Rina but were forced to confirm her death. Her father and brother were flown by helicopter to hospital in Jerusalem. Rina’s funeral at their hometown of Lod was attended by her mother, nine other siblings and hundreds of mourners.

The initial stages of the investigation already lead to seven, say DEBKAfile’s counterterrorism sources:

  1. This was no lone-wolf attack but the work of a terrorist team.
  2. This sort of terrorist operation requires forward planning and intelligence for determining the bomb’s location and the distance from which it is to be detonated.
  3. An escape route was laid on for the perpetrators by car with a driver or driven by the perpetrators.
  4. Palestinian terror operatives are becoming more audacious. In recent attacks – the stabbing murder of Dvir Sorek on Aug. 8 outside Migdal Oz in Gush Etzion, the car ramming attack on an Israeli brother and sister a week ago outside Elazar and the latest atrocity – all show they are not afraid to strike near fortified Israeli communities, undeterred even by security cameras. It is becoming evident that the security setup provided Israeli communities in Yehuda and Samaria no longer serves its purpose.
  5. This murderous attack this Friday was clearly neither a one-time nor a copycat operation, but part of an organized series orchestrated by a central hand.  
  6. That these deadly attacks continue shows that the Shin Bet security service – as well as the Palestinian Authority’s security agencies cooperating with Israel – has not found leads to the responsible party or parties.
  7. There is a real possibly that disaffected elements of rival Palestinian terrorist movements, such as the Fatah-Tanzim, Hamas and Islamic Jihad, dissatisfied with leaders’ inconclusive Israel policies, have taken their own initiative for launching a radical anti-Israel campaign.

Remote-controlled IEDs (notoriously used against US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan) were the weapon of choice for the Palestinian Fatah-Tanzim squads against the Jews of Judea and Samaria in the years 2001-2004, after which their intifada was suppressed. In recent years, Palestinian terrorists turned mostly to shooting, stabbing or car-ramming tactics. The return of roadside bombs represents a dangerous escalation and poses a major danger to the traffic using the roads and highways of this region.

    We kill them and they kill us, round and round we go.

    Its high time that we discussed a just peace with the Palestinians. Yes we say the land is ours because God said so, but we left… either we ran away or moved on to better places.

    Now centuries later we say is ours give it up or die and we are surprised when they fight back.

    So round and round we go again.

      Lets no forget that 95% of the “Jews” in Israel have ZERO Semitic blood whereas the Palestinians ARE a Semitic People.

      You the Ashkenazi White Jew are descendant of Khazars some 2000KM away from the Middle East.

      You are Jewish BY CONVERSION and are not of the Tribes of Israel.

      So you the Ashkenazi technically are the one of the greatest antisemitic / non-semitic peoples in the world as you are killing an actual semitic people (O irony here).

      But ye besides that very important point i agree a Just Peace is required while their is still chance for it.

            I hate to break it to you but all you are doing is confirming what Tommy said.

            His point was that the Ashkenazi are converts and not of the original Jewish Tribal Bloodlines.

            This explains why they have no semitic DNA but as Tommy said they were converts which means that they are Jewish based on Jewish Law.

            It’s not a big deal it’s just a interesting historical foot note.

    I’ve heard of the odious Abbas speech at a refugee camp near Ramallah earlier this month, “Palestinians shall attack by millions martyrs” he said, and 17 years old Rina’s killing is the direct result.

    This hardened killer, like all Palestinians, has never ever considered peace, all they dream of is extermination. They define themselves as hardened killers and this is what they proved to be all along these years since the invention of the term “palestinians”. Their business is perpetual war, not a civil life.

    ALL PALESTINIANS ARE KILLERS, THE SUCKLE THE KILLING WITH THEIR MOTHER MILK, THIS IS WHAT THE LEARN IN KINDERGARTEN, IN SCHOOL, AND FROM ABBAS ON TV.

    It is clear to me that Palestinians are troop, not population. My heart is with Israel and the people of God. To the heinous people Abbas I wish the deserved retribution at a scale and with such power as to never ever be able to harm Israelis.

        Let’s not forget that this persecution of an entire people has been ongoing since the 1940’s.

        So almost 80 years of opposition and persecution or in simple terms 4 generation of Palestinians have suffered from our “enlightened and benevolent people”.

        I was born in the US and have had every advantage that living in this wonderful country affords.

        If I were born in Palestine as a Palestinian what future could I have had. In that society most Jewish people would treat and see me as little more than a dog.

    Arabs in Israel and West Bank can go to Israeli colleges and universities. Until hamas overthrew the government in Gaza , those Arabs could work for living wages in Israel, and attend higher education.
    The Israeli Supreme Court validates the rights of all religions and ethnic members of Israel .when cases of discrimination pop up , they are prosecuted. while Israel is not perfect, and only 70 some years old, it can be compared to other democracies , hundreds of years older , still working on the same problems, but without the stress of someone trying to murder their children.
    I applaud the incredible achievements the Israelis are creating in democracy, and innovation, under the most trying of situations.
    Those who post anti Semitic drivel in these posts , are trying to make us miss the big picture , just how amazing this rebirth of our country is.
