Gantz vows to ‘settle the score’ with Tapuah terrorists

Defense Minister Benny Gantz vows Israel will capture the terrorists behind a drive-by shooting attack in the northern West Bank in which three Israelis were wounded, after security forces arrested a number of alleged accomplices.

“I have ordered a continued state of high alert in the area given the recent incidents,” Gantz says while touring the area.

Commenting on the overnight arrests, Gantz says, “We’ll get the terrorists and settle the score with them.”

He adds: “I continue to pray for the recovery of the injured still hospitalized in serious condition. Our security forces are prepared for any scenario and will continue to use any means necessary, wherever necessary, to protect our citizens’ safety.”
