The IDF's Binyamin Division Brigade together with Israel's Border Police arrested on Wednesday morning the mother of one of the terrorists involved in Friday's combination stabbing-shooting attack at Damascus Gate.

The attack injured four people and killed Sergeant Major Hadas Malka.

The woman, who lives in the Arab village of Deir Abu Mash'al, is suspected of vitriolically inciting her son to violence, praising shahids (martyers), and calling for terror attacks against Jews.

In a raid on the family's home, security forces found inciting material, including flags and posters.

On Tuesday night, IDF, Border Police, Shabak, and Israel Police forces arrested eight wanted terrorists and brought them for interrogation.

All eight terrorists were arrested in the Binyamin, Ephraim, and Gush Etzion regions.
