Israel removes Palestinian monument to terrorist in Hebron
Also removing seven illegal lathes and arresting three suspected of terrorist activities, Israeli security forces take down the memorial to a 16-year-old girl who tried to stab a Border Police officer.

Overnight Sunday, Israeli security forces dismantled a monument in Hebron erected in memory of a terrorist who carried out an attack in the region. They also seized seven illegal weapons manufacturing lathes and arrested three suspects for terrorist activities.

 

 

The monument was erected in memory of the terrorist Bian Asila, a 16-year-old Palestinian girl. In October 2015, Asila approached the Border Police base near the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron and attempted to stab a Border Police officer on guard duty, though she only succeeded in lightly wounding the Israeli’s hand. Cpl. M., the attacked Border Police officer, managed to shoot Asila dead.

The monument carried a text memorializing Asila alongside a verse from the Koran: "In the name of the merciful God, do not think that those who were killed for the sake of God die, but live in the midst of God.”

According to intelligence figures, as a result of the frequent raids by the security forces, the price of improvised weapons has increased, nearly tripling from the prices of a year and a half ago.
