The increase in violent attacks on the roads continue while at the same time Security Forces have captured several terror cells, some were caught in the center of Israel, and some of them had Israeli ID's. They were captured while planning abductions of IDF soldiers and/or civilians while patrolling various areas within Israeli seeking their victims.
The Security Forces are continuing the operations to capture additional terror cells who are working with various terror organizations in Hevron, Ramallah, and other areas and are being guided by terrorists who are incarcerated inside of Israeli prisons for terror activities.
We are on alert for emergency security and rescue because of the serious situation. We would like to express our appreciation for the dedication of our volunteers and the Security Forces who are working tirelessly in order to prevent terror and save lives. We are grateful to be able to work with them.
