5 wanted terrorists arrested overnight in Judea and Samaria – 1,500 pray at Joseph’s Tomb
The IDF arrested 5 Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea and Samaria, who were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
The terrorists were turned over to security agencies for further investigation.
Large IDF forces along with bulldozers arrived in the Arab village of Az-Zawiya in the Shechem area to demolish the home of the Muslim terrorist who murdered Rabbi Ettinger and Staff Sgt Gal Kaidan in a combined stabbing and shooting attack last month near Ariel.
Violent riots broke out in the area, with dozens of Muslim terrorists throwing rocks at IDF forces operating in the demolition.
IDF troops responded with crow dispersal methods. No damage or injuries reported.
In addition, the IDF, Border Police and the Civil Administration for Judea and Samaria secured the entry of 1,500 Jewish worshipers to biblical Joseph’s Tomb in Shechem.
