19 wanted terrorists arrested – Demolition order given for home of Barkan terrorist
The IDF arrested 19 Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea and Samaria, who were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
The terrorists were turned over to security agencies for further investigation.
Security forces have ordered the demolition of the home of the Muslim terrorist who murdered Ziv Hagbi and Kim Levengrond Yehezkel at the Barkan industrial area in Samaria.
The order relates to the basement and the ground floor of the building in which the terrorist lived. It was signed after an objection by the family of the terrorist was rejected. The family was given until Sunday before the order is implemented. During this period, they can appeal to the Supreme Court.
On October 7th shortly before 8 a.m., a Muslim terrorist entered a factory where he worked in the Barkan Industrial Zone, near Ariel, armed with a locally-made Carlo submachine gun.
The terrorist went upstairs to fix an electrical malfunction on the second floor, noticed several employees, and decided to go back downstairs. The terrorist took zip ties from the factory’s warehouse and then returned to the second floor to carry out the terror attack.
Upon reaching the second floor, where the factory’s offices are located, the Muslim terrorist forced a janitor at gunpoint to handcuff the victim, released him unharmed and executed Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel.
The terrorist then advanced towards the office of Ziv Hajabi and shot him to death as well.
After the terror attack, the terrorist waited for about five minutes while the factory workers treated the victims and then fled the factory, still armed with the submachine gun, boarded a car and headed in the direction of Shechem.
Security forces continue to raid the Tulkarem area as a massive manhunt for the terrorist continues.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman addressed the death penalty for terrorists bill, which will be brought before the Knesset’s Constitution, Law and Justice Committee on Wednesday, tweeting, “We will not stop until the mission is accomplished.”
