Israeli Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld says the 26-year-old man, a settler suspected of breaking into an army base, is from the northern West Bank settlement of Eli. He will appear in court Tuesday.
Rosenfeld says the attack was a so-called "price tag" mission, referring to a settler practice of attacking Palestinians or the army in retaliation for Israeli government operations against settlers.
Israeli police created a task force to investigate "price tag" suspects after the break-in at the army base in early September.
Rosenfeld says the task force is also looking for arsonists who torched two mosques.
