Jerusalem, 21 August, 2022 (TPS) — An Israeli bus driving in the Benyamin area on Saturday night was attacked and shot at by Arab terrorists. No Israelis were injured in the attack but the bus was damaged by several bullets.

The IDF stated that live fire was shot at an Israeli bus adjacent to the village of Silwad. IDF soldiers launched a search in the area for suspects.

Yisrael Gantz, head of the Benyamin Regional Council, stated after the attack that “we have been seeing an escalation and a loss of deterrence for some time. A very great miracle happened tonight. We demand immediate and deep actions to eradicate terrorism and restore deterrence on the ground.”

Earlier in the evening, three female terrorists were arrested by Israeli forces at the Eliyahu Crossing near the city of Qalkilia in Samaria, after an improvised Carlo-type submachine gun and a suicide note were found in their vehicle.

According to the suspicion, the terrorists, who are residents of Shechem (Nablus) and without permits to enter Israel, intended to carry out a shooting attack against the security guards manning the checkpoint.

In related news, the IDF and other Israeli security forces conducted counterterrorism activities in a number of locations in Judea and Samaria, including in then the village of A-Zabadda and the city of Hebron.

The forces also operated in the village of Beit Fajar in the Gush Etzion area and arrested three wanted persons suspected of involvement in terrorist activities. In addition, IDF uniforms were found.

A total of seven wanted persons were arrested throughout Judea and Samaria

There were no Israeli casualties in any of the incidents.

The arrests were made as part of Operation Wave Breaker, Israel’s counterterrorism operation following several deadly terror attacks that the country experienced in recent months.
