29-Jan-13: Tapuah Junction again
There was an IDF intercept yesterday at Tapuah Junction. Terrorists evidently en route to carry out an attack aroused suspicion, and arising from that suspicion they were apprehended by Border Police service personnel. Details at "28-Jan-13: Another timely IDF intercept of mayhem-minded terrorists". Today, there's a terrorist attack in the very same location, Tapuah Junction. The Jerusalem Post has just put up a report headlined "Palestinian stabs Israeli in W. Bank terror attack" in the past hour. What's undisputed is that a 17-year-old boy, Jewish, was stabbed by someone at Tapuah Junction, in the Samaria district. What is going to be disputed is who did it and why. The Post article says Border Police officers saw an Arab man from Ramallah stabbing the youth and stopped him and placed him under arrest. They report that the stabber admitted to them that he was indeed out to hurt someone grievously, and the victim was chosen for the usual reason: being Jewish (that's a literal interpretation). The young victim is being treated at this hour in Beilinson Hospital, part of the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva.
