JERUSALEM (VINnews) — IDF soldiers in the Binyamin region arrested a Palestinian in his 20’s on Monday afternoon dressed in a soldier’s uniform. The terrorist was identified by local residents walking on the main road near the community of Maale Levona in the Binyamin region. The resident’s suspicions were raised by the fake IDF uniform he was wearing and they alerted IDF soldiers from the chareidi Netzach Yehuda brigade who arrested the terrorist, who was found to be armed with weapons and ammunition.
Binyamin Regional Council head Yisrael Gantz said that “the awareness of the residents prevented a serious terror attack. They acted correctly in calling the Binyamin hotline. Thanks are due to the IDF soldiers for their fast action and to the members of the security division of the council. The coordination of the different forces prevented a serious incident, thank G-d.”
