Muslim terrorist shot and neutralized after throwing firebombs in Gush Etzion
BREAKING: IDF soldiers shot and neutralized a Muslim terrorist who was attempting to murder Jews by throwing firebombs at vehicles traveling on Road 60 between Gush Etzion and Jerusalem.
According to first reports, the Muslim terrorist was shot in the leg after trying to escape.
He was evacuated to Sharei Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem.
A terror attack was thwarted Tuesday morning at the Qalandiya checkpoint, north of Jerusalem. Border Police sappers were called to neutralize a pipe bomb found on the Palestinian Authority side of the crossing.
In addition, the IDF arrested four Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea, Samaria and the Jordan Valley, who were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
Border Police and IDF forces from the Combat Engineering Corps operated early Tuesday morning in the Arab village of as-Samu in the Hevron area, following intelligence gathered about weapons and large amounts of money used to finance terrorism.
As part of the counter-terrorism operation, the forces raided a house in which three airsoft guns, a stolen motorcycle and some NIS 850,000 ($235,000) were found in cash.
