Yitzhar Attack Foiled by IDF
Soldiers at an IDF post near the Samaria town of Yitzhar – not far from Itamar, the site of the murder of the Fogel family just weeks ago – detected an attempted invasion of Arab terrorists on Friday night. The two terrorists who were attempting to get into the town escaped after a chase by IDF troops and the town's security brigade.
Soldiers detected two suspicious looking characters outside the town's security perimeter fence at about midnight Friday. The two were detected when they were about 150 meters from the fence, and were continuing to advance towards it. Troops focused a searchlight on them and called on them to halt, but the two began running away, escaping to a nearby Arab village. IDF troops entered the village in a search for the terrorists, but were unable to find them.
Imagine if - God forbid - there had been another Fogel-like massacre.
