Overnight, two firebombs were thrown at Israeli cars on road 60, south of the tunnel checkpoint, near the Beit Illit junction in Gush Etzion.
One of the drivers reported that he saw a terrorist about to throw the firebomb at them, so he hit the gas to get away. As a result, the firebomb landed just behind his car.
The army began searching the area for the attacker. During the search, a car was stopped and in it they found two sniper rifles, a homemade silencer, telescopic sites, bullets and magazine cartridges, according to a report by the Tazpit News Agency. Three Arabs were arrested.
There were other stone throwing and firebomb attacks in Judea and Samaria overnight.
