The IDF arrested two Palestinian relatives from the West Bank city of El-Bireh on Tuesday morning in connection with Saturday night’s infiltration of the adjacent West Bank settlement Psagot, an attack that left nine-year-old Noam Glick lightly wounded.

Security services suspect that one of the men planned and executed the attack, while the other assisted.

On Saturday, just past 9 p.m., a masked man cut through both a ring of barbed wire and a steel chain fence surrounding Psagot. He then ran up a rocky hilltop and entered the back porch of the Glick family home just as Noam was returning from a Bnei Akiva activity.

According to Glick’s father, Israel, the man shot his daughter from a meter away, hitting her in the shoulder.

She was taken by ambulance to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem and was released on Tuesday.

Israel Glick told reporters on Sunday that it was a miracle that his daughter had survived the attack with such a light wound.

On Tuesday night, he told The Jerusalem Post that her friends and neighbors had warmly welcomed her home in the afternoon.
