Low-Intensity Conflict Report #93 September 8, 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.
Following the abduction and brutal murder of Naftali, Ayal and Gil-Ad HY"D, and the murderous attacks from Gaza, the tunnels which were dug into civilian communities in order to murder the innocent men, women and children whose only crime is being Jewish and Israeli and the brave and moral conduct of our soldiers while we citizens of Israel are given barely minutes to find safety in a shelter I will now write a partial security report. But first I wish to express my deep condolences to the families of our fallen and killed by the terrorist Hamas and pray for the full and speedy recovery of our injured.
The terror attacks against us here in our Land have increased since the abduction and murder of our young boys and escalated since the war that the Hamas began using innocent civilians as human shields, using hospitals, mosques, homes as bases of terror : rockets, terrorist cells, and with the hospitality and help of the UNRWA and UN.
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.

In his interrogation Kuasma admitted that he was involved in the terror attack and also pointed out helpers who had hid the murderers. With the discovery of the bodies of the abducted youth (July 30 ) Kuasma, about 30, and Hasan Kuasma, Kuasma became a wanted criminal and planned to escape to Jordan with a false identity with the help of his family residents of Hevron. Hasaam Kuasma, about 38, Jamal about 45, members of the Hamas terror group. With the Intelligence Operation of the General Intelligence Forces he was found and arrested in his hiding place in the Refugee Camp in Shoafat. Hussan Kuasma, a resident of Hevron about 40, has been imprisoned in the past (1995-202) for Hamas terror, carrying out terror attacks with explosives. He is a member of a family who were involved in very hard terror attacks of the Hamas. His brother, Hasin Kuasma is carrying out a life sentence for the bombing near the Binyanei Hauma in Jerusalem (March 2011)A British tourist was murdered and dozens injured in the attack. Another brother Machmud Kuasma, was sentenced 20 years in prison for helping to carry out the double suicide terror attack in Be'er Sheva (August 2004, where 16 Israelis were murdered). He was released in the Shalit Deal and banished to Gaza (November 2011)
In the investigation and interrogation of the Security Forces and others investigations it was discovered that Hussam Kuasma who acted as a commander to the terrorists who abducted the boys was able to get through his brother Machmud, who is in the Gaza Strip 222.000 NIS in order to carry out the terror abduction. With this money prior to the terror abduction, and with the aid of Noach Abu Aisa, a resident of Hevron, the vehicle used in the abduction, which the terrorist murderers burned in the area of Dura, and the escape vehicle was left in Hevron. In addition the money also was used to purchase weapons: 2 rifles and 2 handguns, which were given to Marwan Kuasma before the terror attack. The weapons and ammunition were purchased by Huassam from an active member of the Hamas, Adnan Machmud Azat Zaro (about 34 years old, resident of Hevron)
During the interrogation it was also discovered that after the murders of the boys, Marwan Kuasma came to Hassam and together they traveled to the place wher they put the boys bodies. They transferred the bodies to a piece of land that Hussam had purchased a few months prior to the abduction and buried them there. Then Hussam helped Marwan Kuasma and Amar Abu Aisa , who during the transfer of the bodies stayed in Hevron, to hide.
During the interrogation of Hussan Kuasma it was revealed that there are additional residents of Hevron who are involved, were arrested and admitted to aiding the wanted terrorists amongst them: two brothers, Arafat Avrahim Machmud Kuasma, about 50, resident of Hevron, senior Hamas activist, admitted to agreeing to hiding the terrorists and indeed following the abductions and murders hid them on land belonging to him.
Achmed Avrahim Machmud Kusama, around 64, resident of Hevron admitted that before the terror abduction Marwan Kuasma came to him and asked for his helpto hide the wanted terrorists from the PA and he sent Marwaan to Arafat his brother. With the end of the interrogation the files of the arrested were transferred to the Military Prosecution of Judea and Samaria in order to carry out a guilty charge for them.
