19 wanted terrorists arrested – Manhunt continues for the Muslim terrorist who murdered Kim and Ziv
The Border Police’s counter-terrorism special unit Yamam, the elite Duvdevan unit, the counterterrorism Lotar unit, and the IDF Oketz Unit, as well as Shin Bet forces and Central Command and Judea-Samaria Brigade soldiers, are taking part in the manhunt for the Muslim terrorist who brutally murdered Kim Levengrond Yehezkel (28) and Ziv Hajabi (35), and wounded another woman in Sunday morning’s shooting attack.
The forces operated in the Arab village of Shuweika, north of Tulkarem, home of the terrorist.
The IDF identified the terrorist as 23-year-old Ashraf Waleed Suliman Na’alwa.
Several Muslim suspects, including members of the terrorist’s family, were arrested overnight and taken in for questioning to determine whether they helped the terrorist to carry out the attack or flee the scene.
“IDF and Shin Bet troops will continue to work to catch the terrorist and to preserve the security of the region’s residents, with an increased operational and intelligence effort,” the IDF said.
Violent riots broke out during the IDF operation in the Arab village. Muslim terrorists threw rocks and firebombs at troops, who responded with riot dispersal methods.
Sunday morning 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 started running towards Kim, who worked there as a secretary and was sitting behind a table at the end of the corridor.
Once he caught up to Kim, he put her in handcuffs and executed her.
The terrorist then advanced towards the office of Ziv Hajabi and shot him to death as well.
After the terror attack, the Muslim terrorist fled the scene, still armed with the submachine gun.
