On Sunday afternoon, IDF forces arrested three suspicious Arabs at the Gush Etzion junction, averting a terror attack.
All three were carrying knives, and during their interrogation admitted that they were planning on committing a terror attack when the IDF caught them.
Speaking in a closed forum to his soldiers, Etzion brigade commander, Colonel Yani Elaluf said that, “We aren’t at the threshold of a third Initifada, based on the number of attacks in Judea and Samaria, we’re already in the third Initifada.”
He expressed optimism, that unlike the previous Initifada, this time the IDF is prepared to fight it properly.
