MIM: Note that the murderous attack was carried out by a terrorist inside an "Arab neighborhood". Another example of how coexistence with Arabs in Israel is impossible and that they should be made to leave.
IDF Soldier Badly Injured in Hevron ShootingAn Israeli man was badly injured in a shooting attack in Hevron Sunday night, probably by an Arab sharpshooter, the IDF said By David Lev First Publish: 9/22/2013, 7:20 PM
An IDF soldier was badly injured in a shooting attack in Hevron Sunday night. The attack took place in the Avraham Avinu neighborhood near the Machpelah Cave in the city.
A Magen David Adom crew treated the victim, who was struck by bullets in his upper body. He was later taken by helicopter to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem.
IDF troops were searching for the perpetrator in the area. The army is investigating the possibility that the attack was carried out by a sharpshooter who hid between buildings in an Arab neighborhood next to the Jewish section of the city, and fired in the direction of Jews.
Tens of thousands of people are expected in Hevron this week. Jewish residents of Hevron said that despite the shooting, all activities that had been planned will go on.
MK Orit Strook, who lives in the Avraham Avinu neighborhood, said that "we are all praying for the health of the injured soldier. We have not had a holiday like this for years, in which one tragedy follows another," Strook said, referring to the murder of IDF soldier Yaakov Hazan on Friday by a terrorist in Samaria. "The government must reconsider its policy on releasing terrorists, which leads to more terror attacks.
"As the Arab terror attackers seek to dispel the joy of the Sukkot holiday and the Jewish presence in Hevron, I am sure that the healthy public response of tens of thousands of Jews who are set to come here this week will win out," she added.
