Palestinian sites incite to murder IDF hero
Palestinian Arab news agencies are inciting to murder an IDF soldier commended for killing three terrorists in 9 days.
The IDF spokesperson’s office honored IDF Corporal T., a combat warrior in the Shimshon Battalion of the Kfir Brigade, for shooting dead an Arab terrorist trying to conduct a stabbing attack at Gush Etzion Junction on Thursday, as well as shooting two Arab terrorists dead at the same junction last week as they stabbed his comrade.
In response, the Shehab and Ma’an news agencies shared the soldier’s photo to thousands of Palestinian Arabs, calling him the “face of the Occupation” and “The Terminator,” Walla! News reports.
The photo, which shows T.’s face, has sparked comments calling to “take care of him” – and other details about him may lead to him being targeted. The IDF spokesperson’s office did not respond to requests for comment.
The ongoing stream of Palestinian incitement in official media has largely caused the terror wave raging in Israel since late September, and its role in the violence has been recognized by the IDF and US Congress.
The terrorists had approached the soldiers and were asked to identify themselves, at which point they whipped out their knives and started stabbing T.’s comrade before he responded quickly and eliminated them both.
