Israel: Israeli defense officials said over the weekend that the latest wave of terrorist attacks can probably be contained, and that while copycat drive-by shooting attacks are a matter of concern, it is unlikely they will spread outside West Bank.
Meanwhile, the hunt for the terrorists who carried out the shooting attack that killed two Israeli soldiers in Givat Asaf on Thursday continued on Sunday.
”It’s only a matter of time before we get our hands on the cell’s members,” one IDF officer said.
The recent spate of terrorist attacks has prompted the IDF to increase deployment across West Bank, setting up 120 roadblocks in the area. Dozens of Hamas members suspected of terrorist activity were arrested across the West Bank over the weekend, the IDF said.
