Report: 3 Palestinian shooting suspects in jail since October

TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- The Israeli Security Agency and military said Thursday that they had arrested three Palestinians who shot at an Israeli vehicle in the occupied West Bank, reports said.

Israel's settler news agency Arutz Sheva said the Sept. 30 shooting occurred on an access road between the illegal settlements of Maale Shomron and Karnei Shomron. No one was injured.

According to the report, three suspects were arrested three days after the incident.

They were identified as Mahmad Katsh, 23, Mahmad Swidan, 20, and a third unnamed defendant. They will be tried in a military court in the northern West Bank, the report said.

It quoted a Shabak source as saying the case was seen as important because of the location where the suspects were from, Azzun village, which "has become a center of terror activity, with many instances of rock throwing and firebombs thrown at Israeli vehicles, as well as shooting attacks.

"The Shabak and IDF are working to limit the incidents, and will continue to do so."
