IDF soldiers identified and arrested a Palestinian Authority terrorist who was carrying a pistol and ammunition in Samaria with the intention to open fire on a bus traveling nearby.
Two buses were hit by gunfire in the same area in two separate incidents over the past four weeks.
“Security forces conducted surveillance operations in anticipation of a future terrorist attack against the passing buses in the area. Soldiers who were stationed on the buses as part of the operations identified the suspect and prevented the impending attack,” said Samaria Regional Brigade Col. Yoav Yarom.
