On Wednesday evening, special forces conducted an exchange of fire with terrorists inside the village of Surda in the Ramallah area.
The terrorists in question are apparently those who carried out the shooting attack four days ago near Ofra.
According to preliminary reports, one of the terrorists, Salah Bharghouti, was eliminated, apparently by “Yamam” special forces. A second terrorist suspected of involvement in the attack was arrested by security forces in the Ramallah area.
Earlier Wednesday, the baby who was delivered prematurely after his mother was critically wounded in the shooting attack at the Ofra Junction on Sunday died, Shaare Tzedek Medical Center announced.
“We regretfully announce the death of Shira and Amichai’s child four days after the attack, despite the efforts of the medical doctors to save him,” the hospital said in a statement.
