Helicopters, Ground Forces, On Terror Alert in Yerushalayim


chopper-helicopterHelicopters, ground forces and medics are on high alert after intelligence officials warn of an imminent terrorist attack in Yerushalayim.

A large number of police are deployed at entrances to the capital as helicopters over overhead. The warning focuses on the neighborhood of Romema, located near the Central Bus Station at the western entrance to Yerushalayim. Pictures of the suspected terrorist planning to attack have been distributed, and police are searching the areas of the Belzer Yeshiva.

Security forces and volunteers are responding to the security alert of a terrorist attack on the heels of last week’s release of 477 terrorists and security prisoners in exchange for the return of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit. Nearly 600 more prisoners and terrorists will be released in two months in the second stage of the arrangement.

Since the releases, terrorists have staged at least three stabbing attacks, one of them seriously wounding a teenage boy in the Yerushalayim neighborhood of Ramot on Shabbos.

An Arab terrorist earlier this year killed one tourist and wounded approximately 20 others in a bomb attack at the Yerushalayim Convention Center, located on a street parallel to the bus station.

  1. I live in Romema. Coming home this afternoon, I heard numerous helicopters hovering overhead, and was asked by 2 frum policemen if I had seen an Arab with colored hair. If anyone local sees such a person they should contact the police immediately.

    P.S. The comment I wrote regarding the article on the halachic question of freeing terrorists – was written by me BEFORE seeing the present article or knowing anything of its issue. Let none of the readers accuse me of being biased.

  2. The hot-headed politicians agree to free over a thousand terrorists. Then people wonder why there is a sudden new threat of terrorism?

  3. We now have over 1000 terrorists to worry about. Some of them who will be able to train hundreds of others by themselves. Rachmono Litzlon!! Hashem Yisborach should help us.

  4. To no. 5 they did not free the terrorists, we got back Shalit for an exchange, yes they were freed, but we should have killed them so that we shouldn’t have to spend millions in feeding these CHAYOS
