Muslim teen-terrorist eliminated, IDF soldier injured in rock-throwing attack

BREAKING: A Rock-throwing Muslim terrorist was shot and eliminated after attacking security forces during a raid in the Arab village of Fawwar in the Hevron area, as part of the hunt for the terrorists who threw the rock that killed Golani Staff Sgt Amit Ben Ygal.

Violent riots broke out during searches in the village, with Muslim terrorists throwing stones, boulders, firebombs and explosive devices towards IDF forces operating in the area.

IDF troops responded with riot dispersal means including live fire at main terrorists, in accordance with the rules of engagement.

The PA’s health ministry identified the eliminated terrorist as 15-year-old Zaid Fadel Qaysia.

One IDF soldier was lightly wounded and another four terrorists were reportedly injured, two of them seriously.

IDF, Shin Bet and Border Police forces continue to hunt for the Muslim terrorists who murdered Golani Staff Sgt Amit Ben Ygal.

Yesterday at around 4 am, a unit from the Golani Reconnaissance Battalion arrived at the Arab village of Ya’bad near Jenin in northern Samaria to arrest four wanted Muslim terrorists.

About half an hour later, a large stone was dropped on them from a rooftop, critically injuring 21-year-old staff Seargent Amit Ben Yigal.

The IDF says he was wearing a helmet. He was evacuated via helicopter to the Rambam Hospital in Haifa, where he was pronounced dead.

Hundreds gathered Tuesday afternoon at the military section of the cemetery in Beer Yaakov for the funeral of Amit.
