"We will not allow terror to raise its head – and we will fight the perpetrators and those who send them."
The suspected terrorist was shot and killed by Border Police officers.
"I am sure he will come back to visit us when he is standing on his feet," said Dr. Amir Korengreen, Director of the Orthopedic Trauma Unit who operated on Ibrahim.
The suspect stated at the checkpoint that he was trying to carry out an attack and "wanted to die."
The indictment said that before attacking that group of soldiers, al-Tourman had considered ramming another group.
