(Dec. 6, 2016) On Monday night, an IDF unit, laying in ambush in Gush Etzion, captured part of a terror cell with a lit firebomb in their hands as they headed to their intended target.
An IDF lookout spotted the three terrorists approaching the security wall near Road 60, next to El Hadr in Gush Etzion.
The ambush unit was already in place in the area, as the IDF was looking for the terrorists who have been setting fires.
As the terror cell approached, the IDF soldiers leaped into action (some a little faster than the others). One of the pytoterrorists was captured. The others appear to have gotten away – for now.
The entire event was caught by IDF security cameras at the command center, who were directing the IDF soldiers to their terror target.
