The danger of suicide bombings in Israel looms again

It's been a while since there'd been suicide attacks. Now, an attempt was made at the checkpoint by Maaleh Adumim:
A woman detonated an explosive and lightly injured a police officer near the A-Zaim checkpoint on the road between Ma'aleh Adumim and Jerusalem on Sunday morning.

The terrorist was seriously injured in the attack and was evacuated to hospital in Jerusalem with burns to her entire body, Magen David Adom said. The police officer suffered to his upper body and was evacuated to hospital with light injuries and in stable condition.

Police said a traffic police officer stopped the driver, who he thought was driving suspiciously, and approached the car to stop at the side of the road and then walked over to question her. The suspect then left the vehicle and the explosion occurred.

"The driver shouted 'Allah Hu Akbar' (God is great) and detonated an explosive device," a police spokeswoman said.

The incident followed a surge since last week in Palestinian attacks on Israelis, mostly with crude weapons like knives and rocks, and a crackdown by Israeli security forces. Four Israelis and 24 Palestinians have been killed in 11 days of violence.
According to this brief, there was a second bomb found in the car. It's lucky if it didn't have a huge impact, and certainly that nobody innocent was killed in this incident. But it sends strong signs that suicide bombings are very likely to be returning unless the authorities start raiding the enclaves where these weapons are manufactured.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
