IDF forces raided the home of the terrorist responsible for a shooting attack outside of Beit El on Monday which left three Israeli soldiers wounded, one of them seriously. The shooter was killed by Israeli forces responding to his attack.

The terrorist from Monday’s shooting attack has been identified as a member of the Palestinian Authority security forces.

In the pre-dawn raid early Tuesday morning Israeli security forces captured the terrorist’s brother, who was taken for interrogation.

Similar raids across Judea and Samaria by the IDF and Border Police netted an additional 10 wanted Arab terrorists, 7 of them are believed to be responsible for past attacks on Israeli civilians and security forces.

Beyond the arrest of the brother of the terrorist responsible for Monday’s shooting attack, Israel has also revoked work permits for relatives of the terrorist.
