In a tragic incident on June 20, Palestinian terrorists brutally murdered Israelis who were dining at the gas station, as well as at the restaurant pit stop. The victims were Nahman Mordoff, Elisha Anteman, Harel Masood (aged 17-21), and Ofer Fairman (63), Hy”d.

In the Al-Arroub refugee camp, two individuals sought by authorities were apprehended, and another arrest was made in the Azzun village.

During this altercation, a military vehicle temporarily became stuck, sustaining minor damage before being successfully retrieved.
