10 wanted terrorists arrested – Bomb defused as Jewish worshipers enter Joseph’s Tomb
BREAKING: The IDF arrested 10 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.
As part of an ongoing campaign against illegal weapons, IDF and Border Police forces seized a local-made Carlo submachine gun in the Arab village of Beit Awa, in the Hevron area.
According to initial reports, the terrorist intentionally crashed his car into a jeep belonging to an elite undercover unit operating at the entrance to the al-Amari neighborhood in Ramallah.
In response, the forces opened fire and neutralized the threat.
The terrorist was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. No injuries among the Border Police force.
The IDF, Border Police and the Civil Administration for Judea and Samaria secured the prayers and entry of some 1,350 Jewish worshipers to biblical Joseph’s Tomb in Shechem.
During security scans prior to the worshipers’ arrival, a bomb was found and was neutralized in a controlled detonation.
The prayers continued without exceptional incidents but violent riots broke out at the entrance to the city. Muslim terrorists threw rocks, firebombs, and fireworks at the troops, who responded with riot dispersal methods.
According to Arab reports, 51 Muslim terrorists were wounded during the riots.
A pipebomb was thrown Wednesday evening at a parking lot near Rachel’s Tomb, a Jewish holy site outside the Arab city of Bethlehem. No injuries were reported, but there is damage to three cars. Police sappers were called to deal with the pipebomb.
In addition, Muslim terrorists attempted to murder Jews by throwing rocks at cars traveling between Kiryat Arba and Beit Anun in the Hevron area. A 4-year-old Israeli girl was very light wounded from glass shrapnel when the car she was traveling in was attacked by the terrorists.
