B’chasdei Hashem, a terrorist attack in the Gush Etzion community of Migdal Ohz was prevented during the night as armed Arab children were detected and apprehended in time.
The video provided by the IDF spokesman unit shows what the command center saw, the two Arab children approaching the security fence of the community. They were both armed with knives, the knives seen in the accompanying photograph.
The suspects, eight-year-olds, told military officials they were dropped off in a van and given knives, told to perpetrate an attack. Being that they are too young to be held responsible, they were returned to the custody of their parents. The minimum age to hold one responsible is 12.
