IDF soldiers overnight Saturday identified three terrorists who threw firebombs and rocks at a vehicle traveling on a road near Mevo Dotan in Samaria.

The fighters who were operating in the area initiated an arrest procedure that included firing at the suspects. An injury to one of the suspects was identified and the other two were arrested by the fighters after a chase.

Last week, the same terrorist cell threw rocks at a bus carrying Israeli citizens on the same road near Mevo Dotan.

On Saturday afternoon, IDF fighters and police officers arrested five suspects who crossed the border from Jordan into Israeli territory. No weapons were found on the suspects and they were questioned at the scene.
