Low-Intensity Conflict Report, #72 - March 27, 2013

Low-Intensity Conflict Report, #72 -  March 27, 2013

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.

May this be a true festival of freedom for our people; freedom of living in our Land in security, freedom of knowing who we are as a people, and freedom of being unified as a people free to protect our Land, our Torah and our nation.

March 14 – 27

The Military Court in Judea presented a charge against Adal Mutzfa including amongst other charges attempted murder.  From the evidence the accused intended to murder an IDF soldier or an Israeli resident by stabbing  with a knife.  In order to perpetrate this the accused traveled to Tapuuah Junction with a knife in his pocket.  The accused then waited at the junction untileither a IDf soldier or Israeli were close enough for him to stab him.  After about an hour a number of civilians and an IDF soldier arrived to the Junction/  the accused attempted to approach them and was pushed back by a Border policeman who also was present at the Junction.  The accused did not give up his plan and in order to cover his intentions conversed with local people as if he wished to ravel to Ramallah.  After a while the accused moved towards the Israeli civilians and soldier that were present and attempted to stab the soldier to death by slowly taking out the knife from his pocket.  When the soldier saw the accused, the accused decided to stab a civilian instead who was standing near him. The accused grabbed the civilian by his head, and with his other hand stabbed him in the stomach. The accused attempted to escape and was apprehended after a short chase.  In addition to the charges against him the accused is being held until the end of due process of the law.

The conclusions  March 21 by the IDF spokesman regarding the helicopter crash which occurred on March 12, 2013 when 2 crew members of the "Cobra", were killed in the crash show a technical problem caused the crash.  The commander of the IAF ordered that the investigation continue.
