On the night of December 19, security forces detained terrorists who carried out an attack in the area of the Homesh outpost in northern Samaria last week.
Four participants in the attack and two their accomplice. The weapons used in the terrorist act were also confiscated.
The Shabak statement informs about the operation carried out in the area of the village of Silat al-Haritiya, during which 4 terrorists were detained.
According to the information in the Palestinian press, they are talking about operatives of the terrorist organization Islamic Jihad, one of whom is a former prisoner.
The terrorists did not resist and did not open fire on the Israeli forces.
Search for terrorists began immediately after the terrorist attack. It was found that their car was hidden behind a dirt roll. Here they waited for the car with the Jews to come down the hill. At the moment when the car approached them, they opened fire from a distance of 10 meters, firing about 30 bullets.
As a result, 25-year-old Yehuda Dimentman was killed. The driver, despite the fact that he was wounded and the tires of the car were punctured by bullets, managed to drive about 2 kilometers to Shomrei Shomron. This saved two wounded – otherwise the results of the attack could have been completely different.
