After laying siege to a house in the West Bank village of Kadum, IDF special forces arrested a Palestinian fugitive overnight Wednesday who was suspected of being part of a terror cell planning an attack on a target inside Israel. The fugitive was fired on by soldiers as he attempted to flee from the house and was subsequently evacuated to an Israeli hospital. Earlier, Police had declared a heightened state of readiness throughout Judea, Samaria and the Sharon region following an intelligence alert indicating that the terror cell was planning an infiltration into Israel. In the wake of the alert, police set up roadblocks throughout the West Bank and increased security checks at existing roadblocks. The intelligence information was passed to police by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency). Intelligence alerts have been received by the security establishment indicating plans for terror attacks throughout Israel and in Israeli and Jewish buildings and institutions throughout the world.
