The Shin Bet and the IDF arrested multiple terrorists suspected of carrying out the shooting attack on Highway 5 two weeks ago. The weapons used in the attack were confiscated.

During the attack, several vehicles were struck. In addition, several other vehicles were damaged by improvised spikes placed on the road to stop cars so that their occupants could be more easily shot at. The incident ended without injuries.

Immediately after the attack, security forces began working to locate the terrorists and arrested suspects based on intelligence information from the Shin Bet, and transferred them for further investigation.

Yesterday, IDF and Border Police reserve forces under the direction of the Shin Bet arrested additional members of the terrorist squad and confiscated weapons suspected to have been used by the terrorists in the attack, as well as ammunition and military equipment.
