Ax-wielding Muslim terrorist killed near Bethlehem
A Palestinian terrorist armed with an ax attacked soldiers at an IDF post at Al-Aroub south of Bethlehem on Wednesday afternoon.
The soldier’s helmet deflected the blow and the attacker was shot dead by fellow soldiers before he could strike again. All the soldiers were unharmed.
Elsewhere yesterday, security forces thwarted a terrorist attack in Jerusalem when they arrested two Palestinian boys in the Old City. Around 1 p.m. border policemen patrolling the Muslim quarter identified two 12-year-old boys behaving suspiciously, said police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld.
“Police units immediately approached them carefully and cautiously, and proceeded to question them,” said Rosenfeld. “During a search, officers found one of the boys concealed a meat cleaver and kitchen knife in his jacket, and the other boy had a large kitchen knife hidden in his jacket.”
Both youths were disarmed and arrested, he said. Under questioning, they confessed to planning to carry out a terrorist attack against Jews in the Old City.
“They remain in custody and will be arraigned at the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court,” said Rosenfeld.
