IDF says it caught cell that fired at settlement last month

No one was hurt in the July 10 shooting in Beit El, near Ramallah; suspects hail from nearby Jalazoun refugee camp

The IDF said Wednesday it had captured the terror squad responsible for a shooting at the Beit El settlement last month.

The army did not offer many details about the arrests, including the number of suspects nabbed in the operation, but said they hailed from the Jalazoun refugee camp in Ramallah, which is not far from Beit El.

“The Jalazoun refugee camp is a focal point for terror from which a number of cells have originated,” the IDF said in a statement.

The July 10 attack attributed to the terror cell ended without casualties. At the time, the army said spent bullet casings were found outside the settlement.

Security forces launched a search of the area in the wake of the shooting.

The army’s Wednesday statement did not indicate when the suspects were caught.
