Israeli security forces raided the city of Shechem early Sunday morning in a special arrest operation under the intelligence guidance of the Shin Bet.

IDF soldiers, Border Police officers, and Yamam officers surrounded a home in the kasbah (Old City) and the two wanted suspects, the terrorists who carried out the shooting attack in Huwara in March, injuring two IDF soldiers, surrendered themselves to Israeli forces without resistance.

The terrorists were transferred to the Shin Bet for interrogation.

The manhunt for the terrorist had stretched out for a month and a half. The operation was launched on Sunday morning in the wake of intelligence information that the two were planning another attack.

  1. Yoav Gallant visits the two soldiers This week we have to visit him during his Mother’s Shiva:- I looked at Missasskim website & couldn’t see his mother’s Shiva details? Could anyone help & give me the Shiva details please?

  2. The הכרת הטוב we need to have for these soldiers for what they do, is quite expansive. Regardless of whether you support the medinah (I and the community that I identify with do not), these individuals put their life on the line to protect אחינו בני ישראל בארץ ישראל . Turning back the clock with all types of hypotheticals isn’t helpful – the way things stand nowadays – if the IDF isn’t מצליח there would be another holocaust and the world would stand by and watch with all kinds of excuses.
