Israeli security forces overnight Saturday arrested a Palestinian man suspected of attacking and critically wounding an Israeli security guard with an ax in the West Bank settlement of Ma’ale Adumim on Thursday.

The Shin Bet said that in a joint operation with the IDF and Israel Police, it apprehended Saadi Ali Abu Ahmad, born in 1995, of al-Eizariya, adjacent to Ma’ale Adumim. He possessed a permit to work in settlements, the Shin Bet said, and according to reports may have known the victim, Tzvika Cohen, 48.
