While the UN devotes its human rights operations to the demonization of the democratic state of Israel above all others and condemns the United States more often than the vast majority of non-democracies around the world, the voices of real victims around the world must be heard.

Original source


A stabbing attack on an IDF soldier was foiled by troops in the southern West Bank on Thursday evening, the army said.

The attempted attack took place at a junction on Route 60 near the Fawwar refugee camp near Hebron in the West Bank.

There were no injuries and the would-be attacker was apprehended by troops.

The incident took place as IDF troops have increased their presence in the northern West Bank near Nablus following a deadly stabbing attack which occurred outside the city of Ariel.

Following an evaluation of the situation by the Central Command of the recent attacks and large-scale riots, troops will be deployed to operate in various hot spots.

Hamas's branch in Nablus called to for a mass march in the city after prayers leaving from the el-Nasser Mosque.

"Your presence is support for the option of resistance and a victory for the blood of our martyrs and prisoners," read a flyer posted on social media.

Israeli soldiers on Tuesday killed Ahmad Nasser Jarrar, a central operative in a terror cell that claimed the life of Rabbi Raziel Shevach in early January.

On Tuesday night Khaled Tayeh died in clashes with IDF troops during a manhunt for Abed al-Karim Adel Assi who stabbed Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal to death on Monday at the Ariel Junction.
