Report March 20-31, 2014
These reports are translated and publicized by Yehudit Tayar for Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron with the clearance and confirmation of the IDF. Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron is a voluntary emergency medical organization with over 500 volunteer doctors, paramedics, medics who are on call 24/7 and work along with the IDF, 669 IAF Airborn Rescue, the security officers and personal throughout Yesha and the Jordan Valley, and with MDA.
We, the volunteers of Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron go out to rescue anyone who needs our emergency medical assistance; including civilians, military and Arabs also those within the PA territories. (with IDF presence) To us a life is precious and we go out at risk leaving home and family or stopping on the road to rescue anyone in need.
This is a partial report of the on-going terror attacks against Israel and IDF and innocent civilians. While the world continues to pressure Israel and boycott products from Yesha the attacks continue daily by those who wish to murder Jews in our Land. It is imperative to break the silence of these attacks which are both encouraged and condoned by the Palestinian Authority, the UNWRA who teach to hate and murder using the excuse of Israel occupying these areas and willfully ignoring the establishment of the PLO in 1964 before the Six Day War in 1967.
While the Palestinian Authority and their representatives continue to attack Israel for not being willing to make concessions in order to continue the "Peace Talks", the reality is that Israel is the only side that has released murdering terrorists, frozen building, and made far reaching one sided concessions in order to at least try to resolve this. To no good since this is a one sided negotiation and the other side have concluded that they will never accept our existence here in our eternal homeland.

Within the framework of joint effort of Security Forces and Jerusalem Police in the year 2011 senior activists of the Hamas Jerusalem were arrested. During the interrogation it was disclosed that they served as a secret command center of the Hamas in Jerusalem that worked to raise funds for terror abroad and to strengthen the Hamas base within the Arab population in East Jerusalem. This secret command center was responsible for the funding of Hamas activities within Jerusalem and under this auspices of their command worked a number of committees that turned out social, religious and educational activities to strengthen the connection with the Hamas and establish its hold on the residents of the area.
In order to strengthen and pay for Hamas activities in Jerusalem the senior activists worked to raise funds abroad. This is money for acts of terror coming to 2.5 Million NIS that was raised dishonestly by showing fictitious contracts and money transfers despite the law forbidding this.
The Hams considers itself to be a Nation acts to strengthen its hold in Jerusalem therefore the considerable effort to base itself amongst the population in Jerusalem as it did in the Gaza Strip. This organization plans to go against the Israeli rule of Jerusalem and encourages terror acts.
The main accused Yacub Abu Azav, Kafach Sarchan, and Achmad Alian were indicted on September 13 in the Jerusalem District Court for activities in a terror organization (a crime as stated in clause 2 in the prevention of acts of terror 1948), Kafach Sarchan was indicted also for possession of materials for purposes of terror (in accordance of clause 8t for the law to forbid the raising of funds for purposes of acts of terror 2005) and the clause forbidding to white wash funds (as per clause 3 for the law forbidding to white wash funds 2000)
The large amount of evidence that was presented by State witnesses to the court pointed to a clear picture of the activities organization and the level of power that the accused worked with and under them dozens of activists within meetings, camps and religious lessons.
Heavy sentences were given to the heads of this case. During February 14 the court sentenced the accused as being involved in forbidden acts against the law with the aim of having a Hamas take over in Jerusalem through the various activities mentioned and it was pointed out the close connection between the public activities and the military activities of the accused as was concluded by the testimonies of the guilty in their interrogations.
In the sentencing the court wrote that these were activities committed that harmed the security of the State and citizens of Israel and not simply a small terror group but one that plans to destroy the State of Israel.
Due to the serious charges the sentences that were given to the guilty were serious prison sentences:
Abu Azav and Sarchan the heads of the organization were given 7 years in prison, and Achmad Alian was given 4.5 years in prison. In addition the court confiscated $30,000 during the investigation.
