The IDF and the police will be on high alert Friday, following a series of attempted terror attacks and riots in the Hevron area.

According to a report on Channel 2 News, there will be an increased presence of soldiers and officers around Judea and Samaria, and especially in Hevron, at the end of Friday prayers in the mosques.

The latest incident occurred late on Thursday night when members of an IDF unit stationed near Hevron shot an Arab terrorist as he prepared to throw a firebomb at them.

Arab reports claimed that the terrorist was seriously wounded and taken to hospital in the city.

Earlier on Thursday, terrorists threw a firebomb at an IDF position in the city. There were no injuries or damages.

Also on Thursday, three firebombs were thrown at an Israeli car travelling near Al-Khader, west of Bethlehem. There were no injuries or damages.

Palestinian Authority Arabs rioted Thursday in Hevron, where they hurled rocks and bottles at Israeli soldiers. IDF troops responded with mob control methods that included the use of tear gas.

There were no reports of serious injuries, according to local sources, who said that nearly a hundred protesters had attempted to storm the IDF troops.

The Arab rioting occurred several hours after a female officer shot and killed a 17-year-old PA Arab terrorist who pulled a gun on Border Police officers near Hevron.

A police sapper who arrived subsequently to check out the gun determined that it was a fake gun.

In an interview Thursday morning, the Border Police officer who killed the terrorist said that she shot the terrorist because she feared a fellow officer would be killed by him. The officer, N, said that the terrorist had aimed his gun at the head of a fellow officer, and that when he failed to respond to orders to drop his weapon, she opened fire.

Palestinian Authority Arabs rioted Thursday in Hevron, where they hurled rocks and bottles at Israeli soldiers. IDF troops responded with mob control methods that included the use of tear gas.

There were no reports of serious injuries, according to local sources, who said that nearly a hundred protesters had attempted to storm the IDF troops.

A damaging video of Israeli soldiers fleeing from rock-throwing terrorists has inspired an IDF review of the limitations being placed on the nation’s troops.

Several Israeli soldiers have charged that officers’ concerns about media photos have recently forced them to retreat in the face of PA Arab mob attacks.

In his official reaction to the video, IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz said “The IDF is ready for all eventualities, although we are not hungry for blood. Unfortunately in the recent operation in Gaza, there were some people who were killed who were not terrorists. In the future we will continue to avoid hunting civilians.”

The video, which was posted to the YouTube website last weekend, showed IDF soldiers running for cover as a mob of Arabs chased them, hurling rocks and bricks. Israeli soldiers armed with weapons did not respond, but instead ran away, using their shields to protect themselves from the stones thrown by the attackers.

Fleeing Soldiers Claim Officers Were Afraid of Media Photos

Fears of media photos may have caused soldiers’ retreat in face of rock-throwing Arabs. IDF reviewing limitations on soldiers.

The damaging video of Israel soldiers fleeing from rock-throwing terrorists may have a happy ending as the IDF reviews limitations on soldiers, several of whom also charged that officers’ fear of media photos, certainly not fear of the rock-throwers, forced them to retreat.

The video of the soldiers in retreat last Friday may have embarrassed senior IDF officers enough to change increasingly restrictive limits on soldiers’ ability to fight terror.

Combat troops have privately complained the past several years that they have been exposed to life-endangering situations by restrictions on their shooting at terrorists. Some have said that every soldier needs a lawyer at his side to understand the directives.

Threats of international court cases, lawsuits, and negative media that term terrorists “civilians”, “youth” and “activists” have been behind the restrictions that place soldiers in a situation of having to prove their lives were threatened if they shot and wounded or killed a suspected terrorist, especially if he turns out to have been a regular civilian acting in a suspicious manner. It is not unusual for seeming civilians to pull knives on soldiers or carry explosives.

Biased media have proved to be an enemy that has aggravated their situation, with foreign mainstream media often showing soldiers shooting at Arab rioters, who are presented as innocent “demonstrators” in a David vs. Goliath scene of Arabs being armed “only” with rocks and bottles while Israeli soldiers have rifles.

The scene of more than 200 rock-throwing rioters from which soldiers retreated in a riot in Samaria on Friday caused the IDF to release a statement that it is reviewing detailed instructions that will take into consideration “factors in the field.”

The Maariv newspaper reported Monday that contrary to officers’ claims that they refused soldiers’ requests to use riot-dispersing weapons in last Friday’s riot in order to avoid aggravating the situation, soldiers stated that the officers were afraid of media exposure on film.

Two soldiers and a Border Police officer were injured by rocks, causing wounds to the face and head as well as a broken or fractured arm.

The incident was preceded by a similar situation in Hevron, where soldiers who were trying to arrest a Palestinian Authority policeman for terrorism retreated in the face of a mob of rock-throwing Arabs.

Hundreds of Jewish motorists on highways in Judea and Samaria have complained for years that soldiers are not allowed to confront rock-throwing terrorists, which often cause accidents and have caused deaths.

The video of soldiers in retreat may reverse the situation.

Former Chief of Staff and Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz, now head of the fractured Kadima party, said that “soldiers do not have to be afraid of fighting and must be allowed to make decisions in the field.”

Interior Minister Eli Yishai (Shas) called on Monday for a Cabinet discussion on the issue of soldiers’ ability to fight terrorists. “A soldier must be allowed to have maximum use of his weapon when he feels his life is in danger,” he said.
