Security forces arrested three young Arab suspects shortly after midnight in connection with the stabbing of an Israeli jogger near Neve Daniel late Tuesday afternoon.
Tomer Ditor, 28, was attacked Tuesday by an Arab terrorist as he jogged along the Derech Avot path between the Jewish communities of Elazar and Neve Daniel.
Ditor, a student who lives in the Gush Etzion community of Rosh Tzurim, was able to make it to the gated entrance of Neve Daniel to report the attack, despite his wounds. He was rushed to the Trauma Unit at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where he was listed in fair condition.
The suspects were taken into custody at the Palestinian Authority village of Kfar Nachlin, which is located close to Neve Daniel.
All three were turned over to Shin Bet Israel Security Agency personnel for interrogation, according to local sources.
