The IDF is looking for terrorists. The commander of the Judea and Samaria division, Brigadier General Avi Balut, arrived yesterday evening at the scene of the attack in Samaria, where terrorists killed Yehuda Dimentman.
Balut said it was dashing shooting from a passing car. The military found an ambush where the criminals were hiding. Tactically, the place was chosen so that the exit from the Khumash checkpoint was under fire. 16 bullets hit a specific car.
As a result of this attack, one person was killed and two were injured.
The wounded managed to independently reach the village of Shavei Shomron, from where they were transferred to hospitals Beilinson and Meir. Yehuda Dimentman died of his wounds on his way to the hospital.
Security forces, IDF, Shabak, Israeli police and other forces are involved in the reconnaissance and search operation.
The Khumash checkpoint has been abolished during the disengagement in 2005, but in recent years it has become an outpost for yeshiva students who study in the area. Young people come there every morning and leave in the evening, and some even sleep there.
Recently, there has been an increase in nationalist incidents and tensions between settlers and Palestinians from nearby villages, occasionally accompanied by outbreaks of violence, throwing of stones and Molotov cocktails. For example, last month a flag with a swastika was displayed at the Khumash checkpoint, which the Israelis managed to remove.
