Border Police arrested a Palestinian Saturday night for allegedly firing a weapon at a Border Police base located in the Abu Dis neighborhood of Jerusalem in November, according to a statement released by the Police Spokesperson's Unit.

The suspect, a resident of Abu Dis in his 30s, was arrested near the West Bank settlement of Ma'aleh Adumim. The suspect was arrested following intelligence and operational activities conducted by the authorities.

There were no injuries in the November shooting incident.


"The Border Police will continue cooperating with the security forces to put an end to terror and to apprehend the terrorists who seek to harm soldiers and civilians," the statement said.

Last week, four pipe bombs were thrown with one exploding outside the Abu Dis base. Border Police are working to arrest the perpetrators, according to the statement.
