Charedi Soldiers Foil Five Terror Attacks in One Month


idf drillDuring the last month, Charedi soldiers of the Netzach Yehuda battalion have foiled five terror attacks in the northern Binyamin area: three vehicle attacks and two stabbing attacks.

Also, the soldiers have neutralized five more terrorists, who were operating under the cover of demonstrations taking place in the area.

In the last months, the charedi soldiers of the Netzach Yehuda battalion have been operating in the area of Northern Binyamin and the Shilo settlements, an area in which several terror attacks have taken place during the current terror outburst, amongst them were the attacks in which Dani Gonen and Malachi Rosenfeld were murdered.

The three vehicle attack attempts, which were foiled by the battalion’s soldiers, all took place at the same location, one week apart from each another. In the first attack, which took place earlier last month, a soldier of the battalion was injured. As a result, the safety procedures in the battalion were stressed, which, along with the soldiers’ vigilance, enabled the foiling of the next two vehicle attacks, at the same location, on subsequent Fridays.

The soldiers, as mentioned, have also foiled two knife attacks in the Binyamin area and in Yerushalayim during the last month. The first attack occurred when, under the cover of a demonstration in the area, a terrorist leaped from his car and stabbed one of the battalion’s soldiers. His fellow company men acted quickly and neutralized the terrorist. In the days to follow, a soldier of the battalion neutralized the terrorist who committed the vehicle and knife attack last month, at the Romema neighborhood in Yerushalayim, injuring 3 Israelis. The soldier, who happened to the scene while riding a bus in the area, quickly perused the terrorist and took him down.
