Muslim terrorist who stabbed an IDF soldier in Samaria captured alive
Cleared for publication: Following intelligence and operational activities, the Shin Bet in cooperation with Border Police and IDF forces on Thursday evening caught and arrested the Muslim terrorist who stabbed a reservist in Samaria earlier in the day.
The Muslim terrorist, a 19-year-old from the Arab village of Jammai’n near Shechem, was transferred for questioning.
On Thursday afternoon, the terrorist stabbed and seriously wounded a 32-year-old IDF reservist who was standing at a bus stop in the Samaria Brigade Junction.
Soldiers and passersby then tried unsuccessfully to overcome the terrorist, who managed to flee towards the Arab village of Huwara after being shot in the leg.
The soldiers’ fire hit several nearby vehicles, and shrapnel from the shooting lightly wounded a woman from Elon Moreh.
The Border Police’s counter-terrorism special unit Yamam, the elite Duvdevan unit, the counterterrorism Lotar unit, and the IDF Oketz Unit, as well as Shin Bet forces and Central Command and Judea-Samaria Brigade soldiers, are taking part in the manhunt.
