Israel's army stops another Palestinian genocide bomber

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that the IDF (Israel's Army) has stopped one more Palestinian genocide bomber from killing unarmed civilians, including kids.

IDF reservists prevented a large-scale car bomb attack inside Israel Friday night, after spotting a carrigged with explosives near Kalkilya.

In Friday night's incident, a group of reservists fired warning shots at the car bearing Israeli license plates, spotted near Kalkilya, with its headlights off.

Its three occupants fled to Kalkilya. At daylight, security forces inspecting the vehicle found four powerful bombs, three gas canisters containing inflammable liquid, and three containers full of nails, bolts, and other sharp metal objects.

In the last few days dozens of terrorist attacks have been averted by Israel's military presence in the West Bank and Gaza.

IDF reservists prevented a large-scale car bomb attack inside Israel Friday night, after spotting a carrigged with explosives near Kalkilya.

Soldiers, meanwhile, were on the alert Sunday along the Green-Line in the Sharon region, in anticipation of possible infiltrations by more terrorists seeking to carry out bomb attacks.

Its three occupants fled to Kalkilya. At daylight, security forces inspecting the vehicle found four powerful bombs, three gas canisters containing inflammable liquid, and three containers full of nails, bolts, and other sharp metal objects.

An IDF tank shell was fired at the car to detonate the explosives.

Ephraim District commander Col. David Menahem praised the reservists' for preventing a powerful bomb attack inside Israel.

"I believe the car was on its way to a place of entertainment. I don't know where but the soldiers thwarted a large-scale bomb attack," he said.

Meanwhile, in Hebron yesterday afternoon, border policemen overpowered a 14-year-old Palestinian boy who attempted to stab a colleague near the Machpela Cave. The boy was handed over to police for questioning.

Despite the violence, the IDF yesterday lifted the curfews on Hebron, Bethlehem, Tulkarm, and Jenin until further notice.

Mathew,

I have created two sections that should answer your questions: point your browser to http://www.FactsOfIsrael.com and check out the Maps, History and Stats pages.

You have the map from 1947 (which the Arabs rejected), and I will do some research to come up with the number for 1947 (I have the numbers for 1948).
