IDF Enters Area B to Search for Ramot Terrorist

A large force of IDF soldiers has entered the Palestinian Authority Arab village of Beit Iska, in Area B, to search for the terrorist who stabbed 17-year-old Jerusalem yeshiva student Yehuda Ne’emad at about 3:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

Doctors at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center who treated the teen on Saturday night told Arutz Sheva that it was a miracle Ne’emad survived the attack.

The village, about a five minute walk from the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot, is located about half a kilometer from the site of the stabbing. Eyewitnesses spoke with police and provided numerous details about the attack. One witness, Aharon Rabin, also spoke with Arutz Sheva TV.

A number of arrests were reportedly made in the village earlier in the evening. Jerusalem police have since issued a gag order against publishing further details on the investigation into the attack, however.

The village is located in Area B, designated as the area jointly administered by the Palestinian Authority and the Israeli government, and under the security control of the IDF. Beit Iska is situated between Ramot and the community of Mevasseret Tzion.

Dozens of youths who heard about the attack earlier in the day reportedly tried Saturday night to reach the Arab village via the same riverbed path apparently used by the terrorist, but were warned by police to return to Ramot.
