Wanted Fatah terrorist arrested in Bethlehem
This afternoon security forces operating in Bethlehem arrested Muhammad Muntasser Taufik Abu Zaid, a 19 year-old wanted Fatah terrorist. Abu Zaid was shot and injured while attempting to escape arrest. He was taken to an Israeli hospital to receive medical treatment.
Abu Zaid was involved in numerous shooting attacks against IDF forces in the past year, and recruited terrorists for shooting attacks and bombing attacks against Israeli civilians and IDF forces. Abu Zaid is known as an explosives expert involved in bomb construction and weapons dealing.
In his efforts to carry out attacks, Abu Zaid received directives and funds from members of the Popular Resistance Committees terror organization in the Gaza Strip. Even in the past few days, Abu Zaid was planning various attacks.
