Ma’ale Adumim Mayor Benny Kashriel has beefed up security following an attempted terror attack Tuesday, foiled by a security guard at the entrance to the community.

The guard fired at the terrorist but apparently missed; as he fought him off, the terrorist stabbed him and then fled from the Jerusalem suburb, home to nearly 40,000 people.

Three suspects were arrested later the same day in connection with the attack in the nearby Arab village of Azariyya.

Kashriel told residents that 20 new Border Guard officers have already been paired with the city’s regular police officers at checkpoints and in patrols around the city.

In a statement on the municipal website, Kashriel thanked local and national security officials for their rapid response to Tuesday’s terror attack. He added that he visited the security guard who was wounded and spoke with his family and the chief of surgery at Hadassah’s Mt. Scopus Medical Center campus, who said the victim was in “good condition.”

“I also have no doubt the terrorist will be caught,” he said. “I have faith in our security forces and I am sure we will hear good news soon,” he added.
