ALARMING VIDEO: Hamas Terrorists Fire At Jewish Yishuv Near Netanya

Hamas terrorists from Tulkarm opened fire early Wednesday morning at Bat Hefer, a Jewish yishuv east of Netanya, and posted a video of the shooting on social media.

This is the second such incident this week, with Hamas terrorists also shooting at Bat Hefer on Monday. On the same day, 30 Palestinians were caught crossing over the security fence from an Arab village in the Tulkarm area and were detained by IDF forces. Last week, terrorists in Tulkarm launched two drones at an Israeli kibbutz in the area. Fatah-affiliated terrorists from Tulkarm carried out a shooting at Bat Hefer last month.

In the video, the terrorists, wearing green headbands similar to the ones worn by the Nukhba terrorists during the October 7th massacre, drive toward the separation barrier, exit the car holding automatic weapons, and open fire, shooting dozens of bullets at the yishuv. B’Chasdei Hashem, despite the intense gunfire, there were no casualties but property was damaged. IDF forces launched a manhunt for the terrorists.

The video below shows dozens of Arabs climbing over the security fence from the Tulkarm area into the Emek Hefer area on Monday. The IDF said that they arrested 19 Arabs but they were unarmed and there is no fear of a security incident.

According to a Ynet report, in the past, Hamas paid sums of money to Arabs in areas like Tulkarm, Jenin or Shechem who provided footage of shootings at Israeli yishuvim.

In response to the incidents, Galit Shaul, the head of the Emek Hefer Regional Council, sent a letter on Wednesday to Defense Minister Yoav Gallant demanding an emergency meeting on security issues in the council’s yishuvim along the separation barrier.

“We have been warning for many weeks about the escalation in the separation barrier area, and unfortunately, the situation continues to deteriorate,” Shaul wrote. “We call on the army and the state to wake up and act decisively and with zero tolerance against these severe incidents. It is unacceptable that Palestinians cross the fence unimpeded in broad daylight. It is unacceptable that our communities are repeatedly targeted by gunfire.”

“Immediate action is necessary before it’s too late. We must permanently increase the presence of significant security and military forces in the area, fortify the barriers east of the wall, and most importantly, establish a buffer zone beyond the wall to prevent approaching the seam line. Our residents are living in growing fear, and it seems that every day another red line is crossed. We cannot afford to wait any longer.”

A security source said: “In recent months, the IDF, together with the Shin Bet and the police, thwarted hundreds of terrorists and terror squads who fired at Israeli yishuvim, some of them also from the Tulkarm area. Some of the operations are carried out by ambushes deployed in the field, some through intense offensive activity and some via eliminations from the air.

“We work 24/7 in defensive and offensive activity to thwart these events before they even happen, but unfortunately there is no 100%. We will track, pursue and reach those terrorists sooner or later.”

Since October 7th, residents of Bat Hefer and other yishuvim in the area have also complained of hearing the sounds of digging.

  1. What is the IDF waiting for, another Simchas Torah massacre choliloh ה’י?
    To the residents of Emek Hefer Yishuvim I can only suggest: Increase your Shmiras Shabbos – it saved many lives on Simchas Torah and with Hashem’s help, will keep you safe as well!

  2. So would Israel army be able to bomb these people families or do a military operation according to international law you can not fight terrorist by bombing innocent people it’s like shooting people at the mall to kill a terrorist this is illegal if there was a weapon carrying in Washington dc it’s still illegal to kill innocent people if the Presidents life was in danger the israeli army is saying we can kill children if one of them is a terrorist but sadly the only way to fight them is to wait until they fight with you Israel should do the prisoner swap as it says it would an all for all every prisoner out of jail and every hostage freed and a cease fire when there decide to do another October 7 probably within a year that’s when you can fight for self defense this is the sad fact of life you must be willing to give up your life when you’re in an army and not bomb Innocent people those that live in Gaza could be citizens of Israel some of them are Jewish they are people on the planet earth living in there correct and ethnic place not just wash water the grass

  3. Instead of shooting anyone that climbing the wall, the arrest them for an “investigation”

    Oct 7 all over again

    You can’t teach stupid people even if it hit them in the face!!!

    The left has ruined everything

  4. The Israelis dont realize that the so-called “civilians ” are all Hamas? It’s unbelievable. They squash a few battalions and another few pop up overnight. And Netanyahu and the left want them to police themselves with international forces after the war in Gaza. Unbelievable.
