Palestinians try to attack Israelis with bulldozer

Wednesday, September 24, 2008 |  Israel Today Staff  

Palestinian Arab terrorists driving two cars and a bulldozer burst through an Israeli army checkpoint in Samaria on Wednesday and attempted to run down the Israeli soldiers manning the position.

The Israelis fired their weapons in the air, quickly convincing the Palestinian to halt the attack before anyone was injured. The four terrorists were all taken into custody and their vehicles confiscated.

The incident comes less than 48 hours after an Arab teenager rammed his car into a group of Israeli soldiers in Jerusalem, wounding 17 people.

Also on Wednesday, an Israeli soldier subdued and arrested a 16-year-old Palestinian after the latter drew a large knife at a checkpoint outside the town of Nablus.

In other terror related news, Israeli security officials announced on Wednesday the recent capture of a Jerusalem-based Arab terror cell that is believed to have been behind the murders of at least two Israeli Border Police officers in the capital in separate attacks.

Officials believe the cell to be part of a Hamas effort to increase its presence and activity in Jerusalem.
