The Rosh Ha’ayin municipality tells residents that police and security forces are searching for two Palestinian terrorists in a neighborhood in the central city.

“According to an update we received from the police, scans carried out in the Psagot [neighborhood] were found to be normal,” the municipality says, meaning that nothing unusual has been found yet.

“Security forces and police are deployed throughout the city,” it adds.

Police believe the two terrorists who killed three and severely wounded several others in Elad last night, are still in the area and have not crossed back to the West Bank.

Elad is located a few kilometers south of Rosh Ha’ayin, and both are close to the security barrier with the West Bank.
