Israeli man murdered in Palestinian drive-by shooting

A cell of Tanzim, Fatah’s armed wing, is suspected of the drive by shooting that fatally injured Rabbi Raziel Shevach, 35, father of six from Havat Gilead. He was driving on the road which winds around Nablus when his car was riddled with bullets from a passing vehicle. Rescued by Magen David, Raziel Shevach died in hospital of his injuries.

The attack showed clear evidence of a professional, well-planned and precise attack by a trained terrorist team, most likely from the Nablus region. This was the first incidence in years of terrorists using regular automatic rifles rather than improvised weapons. They sprayed the victim’s car with precise fire, directing it accurately at the driver from their own moving vehicle, evidence of expert marksmanship.

DEBKAfile’s military and counterterrorism sources report that the IDF and the Shin Bet security service were recently alerted to Tanzim networks going on standby in the Nablus area for the order to revive shooting attacks on Israeli vehicles in the Samarai region. If Tanzim’s hand in the attack is confirmed, it will be the first armed operation by the Fatah’s armed wing since the second Palestinian “intifada” was quelled in the mid-2000s.  IDF units are scouring the Nablus region and surrounding villages for the vehicle and the perpetrators of the attack. They are also spreading out for a major effort to prevent an escalation of shootings, since the success of one cell may well be the signal for others to go into action.

    Hunting season for Jews has again opened in the city states of the judenrein Palestine Nazi authority. Its a fun and profitable pastime for the members of this Arab murder cult. If they don’t get caught they are heroes in their society and get promoted in the ranks of the ugly Arab orcs and if they do get caught they are still heroes. And then entitles to health insurance and a nice fat salary for the sponsors of their work. In addition it is satisfying to know that one new widow 6 Jewish orphans will now have to struggle to make ends meet…. A plus for their resume! It would be nice to have all their income and assets sold and given to the orphans they created after they are tarred, feathered and hung with a cruel torturous death so that the world will know there is a god in Israel and justice for his people belongs to him. But really what can you expect from a Dunlop atheist oligarchal regime that runs the battle for Israel with lefleft unjewish sentiments and fear of their own shadow

    Simple: If Tanzim, Fatah’s armed wing carried out this terror act, then destroy Tanzim, Fatah’s armed wing. Also take out its leader, Mahmoud Abbas and his henchmen.

    “PM calls Abbas to condemn murder of Rabbi “….

    This is madness to say so! We all know why…

    The jewish people has made Bibi the PM to lead them / to act in their interest / to protect them!

    The jewish people therefore wants Bibi to go for the head of the snake / catch it and destroy it !

    This means? Get the master terrorist / mass murderer Abbas and send him to the gallows !

    If Bibi fails to do so – he fails to do his job he was elected for !

    It was Bibi who let Shalit rot in Gaza for 5yrs – I dont think he cares a lot for those Israelis living / being murdered in Jesha….

    Maybe Bibis time is over indeed…

    Hamat Gilad – the village of the murdered Rabbi – is located in Shomron, the historical heartland of Israel.

    Israels PM Netanjahu didnt want to legalize Hamat Gilad up to this day…

    So, whos PM is Netanjahu ? Whom is
    Netanjahu protecting ? Whom is Netanjahu fighting ?

    Maybe its time for Netanjahu to step down…
