Israel Defense Forces entered Ramallah on the strength of intelligence from the Shin Bet and captured an Arab fugitive who attempted to stab Israelis at the Tapuach Junction on October 30.

Bassal Abu Alia, born in 1989, is accused in connection with the attack, along with a secon suspect. Alia, who lives in the Arab village of Muayaer, in Samaria, was injured when he attempted the attack, according to the allegations.

The would-be attacker was evacuated from the scene by the Palestinian Authority’s Red Crescent emergency medical response service. After an initial admission to an urgent care facility he was transferred to a medical center in the PA capital city of Ramallah.

After his discharge, however, he spent the past week hiding in a Ramallah hotel, hoping to avoid arrest by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet).
