Charges will be filed Tuesday against a 20-year-old Arab terrorist who stabbed an 18-year-old yeshivah student near Har Hazeisim two weeks ago . The Arab used a sharp piece of wood that was lying on the floor of a store and stabbed the victim in his upper body. The victim managed to escape and ran out of the neighborhood, making his way to a nearby police station, where he received first aid before being taken to a nearby hospital.

Also on Tuesday, police said that they had discovered a printing press used for printing phony entry passes into Israel for Arabs, as well as Israeli identity cards, drivers licenses and other official documents. The printing press was found in the village of Akraba, south of Shechem. Samples of documents, as well as ink and other materials, were also found at the site.

Overnight Monday, security officials said they arrested 15 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.
