Police forces thwarted an attack in the Samaria area.
Last night (Sunday) during an initiative of the police to prevent friction and disturbances at Tapuach Junction, the police stopped a vehicle that raised their suspicion.
During a search of the vehicle, the police seized an ax and a suicide note, in which it was written by the suspect that he was on his way to carry out a revenge attack.
Preliminary investigation shows that the suspect went around for about an hour looking for Israelis standing alone in order to hit them with the ax in his possession.
The suspect, a 22-year-old Palestinian resident of al-Bira, was arrested for questioning.
The commander of the Samaria region, Lt. Col. Haim Sargrof, said: "The vigilance of the police and the pursuit of contact probably prevented a major attack. We will continue to defend with determination and professionalism together with the other security forces the security of Israeli citizens anywhere and anytime."
