Two dead  of the 4 badly injured in new Palestinian shooting near Bethel

Four Israelis were critically injured on Thursday, Dec. 13 in the second Palestinian drive-by shooting in five days. Two of the victims died under the hands of paramedics. The attack occurred at Asaf Hill between Ofra and Bethel, while Israeli army and security forces were scouring Arab villages for the Hamas network which perpetrated the attacks on Ofra and Barkan. They caught up with a number of ringleaders in the last 24 hours, but most are still at large, armed and searching for more terrorist targets. They are being cheered on by calls on the Palestinian street to avenge those “martyrs.” An obituary released by the Fatah movement in Ramallah called the terrorists captured or killed while resisting arrest “heroic martyrs who died for the motherland whose blood delineates the map of Free Arab Palestine.”

Soldiers are patrolling the roads and setting up roadblocks in order to catch the shooters and their vehicle.

    They can call them what they want,civilised people will call them baby killers, and terrorists.
    I wonder now what the U.N. will call them after their recent vote on the matter.

      The inaction by Israel on hamas terrorism over the past few months (other than giving them $15 million dollars monthly), has resulted in this escalation of violence against israeli citizens.

      There are shootings, there are knife attacks, there are cars running over Israelis and other terrorist incidents. This is in addition to rockets being fired by hamas and fire kites destroying Israel’s lands.

      hamas, palestinians and hizbollah are laughing at the unresponsive Israelis as they increase their attacks against Israel. The terrorism is increasing, as are their weapons.

      It is time for Israel to act.

      It would also be advisable for Israel to have an effective public relations campaign, to match that of the crying hamas PR campaign, and not care how the world responds.

    the only thing that fatah and hamas can agree on is the killing of jews. anyone who thinks that one terrorist group is different from the other, or is interested in peace, is delusional.

      BINGO! Its only when Jews do in Eretz what we did in Shooshan will the Arab Invaders leave our land short of us Jews forcibly kicking htem out – which is what WILL eventually happen if the status quo does not change.
