TERROR IN ISRAEL: 4 Police Officers Injured In Ramming, Attempted Stabbing Attack

A terrorist rammed his car into a group of Israeli police officers at a checkpoint in central Israel overnight Tuesday, leaving four officers injured, one seriously.

The incident occurred at about 1 a.m. near the Kochav Yair intersection.

The terrorist then drove to the nearby Eliyahu Crossing, exited his car armed with a knife and attempted to stab security guards there. They opened fire, killing him. Another suspect fled the scene.

MDA paramedics administered emergency medical aid to the police officers. The seriously injured officer was evacuated to Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikvah and the three other officers, one in moderate condition and two in light condition, were evacuated to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba.

The terrorist was identified as Waheb Sabita, a 26-year-old Israeli-Arab, a resident of the nearby city of Tira. His family issued a statement claiming that they had called the police ten minutes before the attack to report that he was suffering from a psychotic attack and was threatening to commit suicide.

However, Israel Police later issued a statement saying that “contrary to false claims from the family of the terrorist, they called the police after the attack, without any other prior warning.”

Security forces launched a manhunt for the second suspect.

  1. To all my dear Friends,
    Here is a good legal trick to help reduce these tragedies:
    In the Sefer Chofetz Chaim it says very clearly that if a person accepts a conversation of something not good about another Yid and he truly believes the negative information about that Yid, that will cause that somewhere else maybe in a different country another Yid will get hurt because you truly believed the negative information even though your conversation has nothing to do with the tragedy in Eretz Yisroel. You can ask your Rav why things work in this particular manner, but this is clearly written in the Sefer Chofetz Chaim.
    It is okay to believe in your mind that MAYBE there is a problem with that person and if you are afraid he may cause you harm, then by all means keep a distance from him because maybe the evil story is true and he may hurt you, so keep away, but do not accept in your mind 100% that the man is for sure trying to hurt you.
    On a MAYBE, stay away.
    but never accept that 100%
