Muslim terrorist who rammed car into IDF soldiers in Jerusalem, caught and arrested after massive manhunt
BREAKING: The Muslim terrorist who rammed his car into a group of Golani soldiers in Jerusalem last night, was caught and arrested after a massive manhunt.
Following extensive operational and intelligence efforts conducted by the Yamam Border Police anti-terror unit and the Shin Bet, the terrorist was arrested at the Gush Junction. He was transferred to security forces for questioning.
“The IDF and the Israeli Police will continue operating in order to maintain the security in the area, to thwart terror attacks and to apprehend terrorists”, the Border Police said in a statement.
Earlier today, the IDF located the car involved in the Jerusalem ramming attack in the Arab village of Beit Jala, 10 kilometers from Jerusalem.
At least 14 IDF soldiers were wounded, one in critical condition, when the Muslim terrorist rammed his car into soldiers near the First Station, a popular entertainment hub.
One soldier in his 20s was critically wounded. He was transferred to Shaarei Tzedek hospital unconscious and suffering major trauma. Another soldier, who was moderately injured, was transferred to the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital. Twelve were lightly injured and were evacuated to Shaarai Tzedek, Hadassah Ein Kerem and Hadassah Mount Scopus hospitals in Jerusalem.
The group of Golani soldiers were at the popular spot during a heritage tour ahead of their swearing-in ceremony at the Kotel, when they were struck from behind by the Muslim terrorist.
Some of the soldiers loaded their weapons and tried to run after the terrorist, but did not manage to fire.
