IDF forces shot and killed a terrorist who had participated in a rock throwing attack on Israelis overnight Monday. Three Israelis were injured in the late-night rock- throwing attack on Road 443. Two other suspects were arrested in the incident.

The three victims – one Israeli and two foreign visitors – were lightly injured. They were evacuated to hospitals in Yerushalayim. The vehicle the were riding in was damaged. An additional 11 other vehicles were damaged in the rock attacks.

Overnight Monday, security officials said they arrested 7 wanted security suspects in other areas in Yehudah and Shomron. The suspects were wanted for participating in rioting and throwing stones and firebombs that endangered Israeli civilians and IDF soldiers. Several of the suspects were also charged with belonging to Hamas. All were being questioned on their activities by security forces.

Also overnight Monday, IDF forces demolished the home of the family of the terrorist who in March went on a stabbing spree along the boardwalk in southern Tel Aviv, killing an American tourist, Taylor Alan Force, and injuring eleven people before he was killed at the Jaffa port.
