Thankfully, none of the High School girls, or the bus driver, were injured in this terror attack that took place last the other night in the Judean Hills. The terrorists threw the molotov cocktail at the bus and ran away.
This is what terror looks like and we will end this terror one day. Our enemies think that they will scare us away with their terror, but they do not know the Jewish spirit. We are home and not only will they not scare us, they strengthen our spirit to grow our presence in our ancestral homeland. Our Arab Muslim enemies have been using these terror tactics against us for 100 years and we have only grown bigger and stronger. Look at what Israel has become in only 71 years! All the while having to defend ourselves from constant war and terror. We are home, making our country an amazing place for all who want to live in peace with us.
Statement from the Head of the Gush Etzion Regional Council
*Shlomo Ne’eman, Head of the Gush Etzion Regional Council responds to a firebomb attack, targeting a bus carrying a group of high school girls late last night*
“At around 1am this morning Arab terrorists hurled firebombs at a Gush Etzion Development Corp. bus at the ‘T’ Junction in Eastern Gush Etzion. The bus was taking high school girls from the Oriya School home after they spent Shabbat in Neve Tzuf, in the Shomron. As IDF forces immediately started chasing down the terrorists, psychologists from the Gush Municipality were dispatched to attend to the girls, and their families, after several went into shock as a result of the incident.”
Ne’eman added, “On one hand we have faith in our security forces to hunt down the terrorists, but on the other hand it’s hard to believe that true justice will be served as our court system does not view these types of incidents as ‘attempted murder.’ We demand that the IDF, government, and even more so our judicial system act strongly against these types of attacks. We will not accept the rock throwing and firebomb attacks on the roads targeting the Jews of Judea and Samaria.”
