Israeli Security Foils Road Terror Attacks
Israeli security forces continue to foil Arab road terror attempts, including an attempted axe-murderer and a briefcase bomb under a bridge.
An Arab terrorist was shot dead near the Samaria (Shomron) Jewish community of Shavei Shomron on Monday morning after he attacked a group of Shin Bet (Shabak) agents.
The attack began with ramming the military jeep in which the agents were traveling. The terrorist then got out of his own vehicle and charged the injured agents with the axe. He succeeded in wounding two of the agents before one of their comrades shot and killed him. Four of the agents had already been wounded as a result of the collision.
