Israeli forces were successful in capturing a terrorist on Tuesday moments after he threw a firebomb at the Kever Rachel (Rachel’s Tomb) complex, located just south of Jerusalem, near Bethlehem.

According to a police statement, Border Police forces were waiting to ambush terrorists throwing rocks and Molotov Cocktails at Rachel’s Tomb, a prominent Jewish site of prayer and study.

The forces identified a suspect who threw a Molotov cocktail at the tomb complex. Responding quickly, the forces arrested the suspect “red-handed” while trying to escape from the scene.

Footage of the incident seen by TPS shows the terrorist, wearing a black mask and a red shirt, throwing a firebomb toward Kever Rachel. He then waits a bit to see what happens, takes off his mask, turns around and runs.

The suspect, a resident of the Al Aida refugee camp in the Bethlehem area, was arrested and transferred to the police for questioning.
