Terror attack thwarted near Jerusalem – Muslim terrorist caught and arrested
Police arrested on Saturday a 20-year-old Muslim terrorist armed with a knife in the Jewish community of Har Adar, near Jerusalem.
After a preliminary investigation carried out by Border Police forces, the terrorist admitted having earlier hidden a knife nearby, which he intended to use in a stabbing attack in order to murder Jews.
He led officers to the hiding place, where they found the knife.
Last week, a 22-year-old Muslim terrorist who attempted to stab a soldier standing at a bus stop at the Gitai Avishar Junction on Highway 5 in Samaria, was shot and eliminated by soldiers from the Artillery Corps’ 55th Battalion, who were on the scene.
No Israeli troops hurt.
