Hamas Attempts to Smuggle Explosives in Ambulance
The Islamist terror militia Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, made an attempt on Wednesday to smuggle material used to manufacture improvised explosive devices (IED) into Israel inside an ambulance being used to transfer a Palestinian cancer patient into Israel for treatment. The attempt was intercepted during a routine security check at the Erez Crossing. “The terrorist organizations in the Gaza Strip, including Hamas, continue to exploit the humanitarian and medical assistance provided by Israel to the residents of the Gaza Strip in order to perpetrate terrorist attacks in Israel,” said a statement by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency.)

Also on Wednesday, an attempted terrorist car ramming attack occurred Wednesday evening at the Gush Etzion junction south of Jerusalem. A 60-year-old Israeli was slightly wounded in the attack while security forces shot dead the terrorist behind the wheel of the vehicle.

Rivlin Meets with Christian Leaders
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin met with the Patriarchs of the Catholic and Greek Orthodox communities in Jerusalem on Wednesday morning to honor the Easter holiday. “I say to you here, our Christian brothers of Jerusalem, our thoughts are with you at this difficult time,” Rivlin said. “We have all seen the pictures from Syria; I visited some of the injured being treated in Israeli hospitals. What has happened there to the Christian community – and to the whole country – is a stain on all of humanity.” He added that Israel, which knew “better than any what it means to pray in fear, and suffer from terrorism (would) “protect your freedom of worship, your security and the security of your holy sites.”

Catholic Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa thanked Rivlin and added that Christians constitute “an integral part of the identity of the city, without which Jerusalem couldn’t be the same.”
