The IDF on Wednesday morning released footage of its forces operating in the West Bank village from where the Palestinian terrorist left from before carrying out a brutal stabbing spree in Jaffa on Tuesday.

On Tuesday night, the IDF imposed a siege on the West Bank villages of the two Palestinian terrorists who carried out separate attacks within hours of each other Tuesday in the Israeli cities of Jaffa and Petah Tikva.

In addition, police forces launched searches at the house of another terrorist who shot and wounded two Border Police officers in an attack in Jerusalem on Tuesday afternoon.

According to Palestinian reports, the terrorist who killed an American tourist and wounded 12 in the stabbing spree in Jaffa was identified as Bashar Massalha, 22, from a village in the Kalkiliya area. The reports noted that Massalha had returned from a visit to Saudi Arabia's Mecca the week before.

The terrorist in the Petah Tikva stabbing that left one Israeli wounded was said to be Abed al-Rahman Radad, a 17-year-old resident of the northern West Bank town of Zawiya.
