An officer and a soldier killed in Palestinian car-ramming attack

A Palestinian terrorist crashed his car Friday, March 16, into a group of Israeli soldiers killing an officer and a soldier and injuring two others, one seriously. Doctors are fighting for his life at the Beilinson hospital, to which the victims were evacuated by helicopter. There was a driver and a passenger in the car which rammed into a IDF unit on Highway 585 outside Mevo Dotan, 10km west of Jenin, which was patrolling the highway in northern Samaria. The terrorist, Allah Kabha, 26, from the Palestinian village of Barta’a, was slightly hurt and captured. He is being interrogated in hospital. Kabha was found to have a previous record: he had been jailed for eighteen months on security violations and banned from entering Israel. The second Palestinian in the car appears to have fled.
Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman vowed after the attack to “take action in pursuit of the death sentence for this terrorist, the demolition of his home and the punishment of his confederates in this crime. There are no lone wolf [Palestinian] terrorists,” he said. “Abu Mazen and the Palestinian Authority pay money to their families. We will stop this.”

DEBKAfile’s military sources: The IDF investigation of the event will also question why the military patrol had no back-up against a vehicular attack.

    Mr. Trump:

    If you want Israel to share one land or live next to these monsters, it ain’t gonna happen!

    Best to find them a home with other zombie killer monsters in Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Lebanon or any number of places where they can enjoy their religious right to kill each other – and leave free and good people to build better lives for their families, communities and country.

    I wish the families of the soldier and officer all the best and pray that the injured soon recovers. May the killer rot in hell.

    Mr Libermann – your words are correct – the head of the terror organisation “plo” is the mass murderer abu mazen – he ordered these present murders – abu mazen is one of the brains of the munich-massacre !Now Mr Libermann – let your words be followed by actions : Stop it by neutralyzing abu mazen !
    Or are you Mr Libermann like other politicians – just making a lot of hot air?
    Mr Libermann: your predecessors finished off the munich killers and their brains- do you have the backbone/the courage to follow the example of your predecessors ….? I hope so.

    Sadness of heart and prayers for the soldiers and families. Anger at PA. They sow so much brutality and hate.
