Monday, January 11th, 2016

The IDF and Civil Administration together demolished the home of an Arab terrorist who attacked Israeli soldiers last weekend.

The demolition took place Sunday night.

The terrorist was one of a team of two who tried to stab IDF soldiers on Saturday morning at the Beka’ot checkpoint. The site is located between the Jordan Valley and Samaria, on the eastern outskirts of Shechem.

Both terrorists were asked to exit their vehicle after being stopped at the checkpoint, also known in Arabic as the Al-Hamra checkpoint.

An IDF spokesperson said the two assailants attempted to stab Israeli soldiers at the security crossing, who opened fire in response to the attack, according to the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency.

The two attackers received medical treatment on site but were pronounced dead, the IDF spokesperson said. No Israelis were injured.

IDF soldiers captured the fugitives in joint operations with Border Guard Police officers in various places throughout Judea and Samaria.

In another operation, elite fighters in the IDF ‘Duvdevan’ unit joined the Israel Security Agency (Shabak / Shin Bet) and IDF’s Etzion Regional Brigade. The group entered the Judean Arab community of Deheishe to hunt down terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), accused of leading riots and attacks at Rachel’s Tomb. Those taken into custody were transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

Other fugitives among those arrested during the night are accused members of the Gaza-based Hamas terrorist organization.
