During a Shabak operation in cooperation with the Yamam and the IDF, Maad Hamed, a 33-year-old resident of the village of Silwad in Binyamin, was arrested Wednesday evening.

Maad has been imprisoned by Palestinian Authority since the terror attack. Today, the Shabak received information indicating that Maad had escaped detention by the PA. According to the suspicion, the purpose of Maad's escape was to commit a terror attack against Israel in the immediate future.
