Why Israel Needs Buffer Zones and Fences
clear
After Israel (bizarrely) allowed Hamas' "security personnel" to go close to the Israel-Gaza border fence, thereby ending the long established 300 metre buffer zone, it would seem the decision has claimed its first casualty and it doesn't require a seer of great power to accept there will be many more to come:
 
Soldiers killed a suspected Gaza terrorist early Monday after he broke into a Jewish home and stabbed a girl before fleeing.  

The IDF discovered a hole in the nearby Gaza security fence, and footprints from the area matched the shoes of the intruder, who had escaped to the Moshav Sde Avraham's greenhouses after he tried to kill the girl.
 
Soldiers caught up with him and tried to arrest him, and then shot and killed him when he tried to escape.
 
The wounded girl is in fair condition. She was stabbed in her family’s home in Moshav Sde Avraham, originally named Yesodot HaDarom. It is a southern community adjacent to Gaza and was founded in 1982 by victims of the expulsion from the Yamit communities in Sinai that was part of the Egyptian-Israeli Peace Treaty in 1979.
The stabbing of a child in a family home is a striking parallel to that of the savage attack on the Fogel family last year but, interestingly, such a significant violation of Israeli territory, and debased violence, has not been reported to even a modest extent by the international media! Surely this is an oddity after they produced a substantial volume of content relating to the November 23rd border shooting, and a great deal of material critical of Israel’s 300 metre border buffer zone?

 I think that the translations into English in a couple of the reports of this attack have misled readers a bit.  She's described in some of the less-detailed reports as a 'girl'.

In fact she's a woman: a young mother of four.  The Arab Muslim assassin entered her house at 4.30 am toting an iron bar and a knife.

Her name is Yael Re'em-Matzpun.

Unarmed, she fought the would-be assassin off , long enough for a couple of neighbours to come to her aid.

Read a couple of the most detailed reports, here.

She's a HERO.  She fought back, she defended not only herself but her four young children.

And the sheer sneaking cowardliness of the Mohammedan jackalthug is sufficiently apparent.

I don't think Yael or her children will have nightmares - because she faced up to the assassin and she beat him, and put him to rout; and then the IDF came to the rescue, and the thug is dead, dead, dead.

Still, my advice to Yael Reev-Matzpun and her husband, and to anybody else living within 20 km of Gaza: get a good guard dog, or, two, or three.  One of those dogs to have the run of the house, at night.  And invest in a double-barrelled shotgun ...and teach even the children how to use it.

Hello Christina,

Thanks for posting up the corrections. I realised the initial account I read via Jihad Watch wasn't completely accurate the next day, and your comment has prompted me to update a different article on my blog.

The lady in question is indeed a heroine. It could have so easily been akin to the horror of the Fogel family revisited. Anneinpt told me that she is actually a Kraf Maga martial arts expert so no wonder she got rid of the would-be killer.
