6-Jul-12: Scenes from the front lines

The community of Ma'ale Hever in the Southern Hebron Hills, close to
Kiryat Arba. About 55 families make their home here.
Most residents are veteran Israelis, but their
neighbours include immigrants from France, Ethiopia and the US.

The chronology below picks up where we left off this past Monday, July 2, 2012 [here]. Like several earlier Tayar reports summarized in this blog, the following is an edited and annotated version that we produce based on the Tayar Security Report compiled by Yehudit Tayar from first-responder, police and army reports. 

Monday July 2, 2012
  • Near Kiryat Arba: An Israeli vehicle is damaged in a rock-hurling attack carried out by Palestinian Arabs.
  • Near Betar Illit: IDF reports that an Israeli bus comes under rock-throwing attack by Palestinian Arabs, with resultant damage to property.
Tuesday July 3, 2012
  • The Gush Etzion-Hebron highway: A throng of Palestinian Arabs attacks another Israeli civilian bus with rocks and cement blocks. Property damage is caused.
  • Near El Arrub (north of Hevron on the Gush Etzion-Hebron highway: The IDF reports that Israeli vehicles come under attack by rocks and firebombs (Molotov cocktails) from a Palestinian Arab crowd.

  • The highway between Ma'ale Hever Junction and Bet Hagai in the Southern Hevron Hills: Palestinian Arabs launch unspecified attacks on Israeli civilians in their vehicles. 
  • The road between the IDF base in Judea and the community of Ma'ale Hever: Palestinian Arabs attack Israeli vehicles, buses and IDF patrols. Property damage is caused.
  • The  the Avraham Avinu neighborhood in the ancient Jewish community of Hebron: An attack on the children's playground by rock-hurling Arabs.
The Tayar Security Report is compiled by Yehudit Tayar based on inputs from the Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron organization, cleared and confirmed by the IDF.
