The Israeli site YNet reportes that Israeli security forces on Tuesday abducted Bassel Abou Alya (26) from the northern West Bank, from a hotel in Ramallah, i.e. ''Area A'', where Israeli forces don't have juridsdiction or acces. Abu Alyia was arrested due to his involvement in an attempted stabbing attack on October 30 at the Tapuach (Za'atara) junction south of BNablus in the West Bank with another Palestinian ''terrorist'' who was killed. He was transferred into Shin Bet custody, according to YNet.
Although he was wounded by a border policewoman's fire, Abu Alya managed to flee the scene to a Red Crescent ambulance, which evacuated him to Rafidia hospital. The Shin Bet managed to pick up his trail using accurate intelligence. He was arrested at a Ramallah hotel by undercover IDF troops. The arrest went without incident.
