BREAKING: A Muslim terrorist was shot in the hand and arrested after attempting to stab a security officer at Herod’s Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City. No other injuries reported.
The 16-year-old teen-terrorist, from East Jerusalem, is in the hospital.
Israel Police say that they also arrested two other Muslim terrorists in connection with the attempted stabbing attack.
The police have heightened security in the area.
IDF troops, Border Police forces, and the Israeli Police carried out a major counter-terrorism operation overnight in the Arab village of al-Arroub, in the Hevron area, after Muslim terrorists attempted to murder Jews traveling on Route 60 near the village in several rock-throwing and firebomb attacks.
During the counter-terrorism operation, 13 Muslim terrorists were arrested. An M-16 weapon, a stolen car and terror funds were found and seized during the operation.
