Israeli Forces Arrest Terrorist Behind Shooting Attack


The IDF and the Shin Bet announced on Thursday that they had arrested the terrorist who carried out a shooting attack on IDF soldiers in Sept. 2022.

In a joint operation the Israeli forces detained Maher Aseid, a resident of the Palestinian village of Wadi Burkin. According to Israeli intelligence, he “planned and carried out the shooting and attempted arson attack against a soldier bus in the Bekaa and Emekim region on Sept. 4, 2022, along with his son (who was killed) and his nephew.” Six soldiers were wounded in the attack.

Maher was arrested in the PA village of El Yamon, not far from Jenin, by the IDF soldiers and the Special Forces. He was handed over for further investigation by the Shin Bet.

“The security forces will continue to work to locate, arrest and bring to justice those who carried out attacks against the citizens of Israel and the security forces, even after the time has passed since the attack was carried out,” the joint statement by the IDF and Shin Bet said.
