Video Clip: Shooting of a Firebomber

Although in Hebrew, here is the 26 second video clip of IDF cameras documenting the attempt by a Pal. to throw a firebomb at Israeli forces and being shot.

You must wait 20 seconds of two commercials after clicking on.

It seems that the bottle was hidden in a UNICEF bag!

He also had a knife on him indicating he was prepared for close combat/attack.


The Israel Defense Forces and Border Police successfully thwarted an attempt by an Arab terrorist to attack the Jewish community of Yitzhar in Samaria, and shot the terrorist dead. An IDF lookout identified the terrorist early Saturday morning as he made his way from the village of Asira al-Kabaliya toward the town.

A video released by the IDF shows the young terrorist carrying a firebomb. He seems to drop it at a certain point, causing it to catch fire. He was shot dead. Security forces found a knife on his body. The terrorist, Suheib Salah, 15, was the brother of Ahmed Salah, who carried out a shooting attack in Yitzhar in June of 2002, wounding four soldiers, two of them seriously, before he was killed.

The residents of Yitzhar issued a statement thanking the IDF and Border Police and congratulating them for the "determined, professional and quick action to eliminate the terrorist."
