Major operation underway: Manhunt continues for the Muslim terrorists who murdered Dvir Sorek HY’D
HAPPENING NOW: A massive manhunt is underway for the Muslim terrorists who kidnapped and brutally murdered 19-year-old IDF soldier and Yeshiva student Dvir Sorek.
Arabs report that IDF forces are operating in the Beit Fajar neighborhood of Bethlehem, a few kilometers away from Migdal Oz, where murder victim Dvir Sorek studied.
Arab media issued an urgent statement to all buildings with CCTV in the vicinity of the terror attack to remove their footage immediately, in order to deter the IDF investigation.
Local authorities in the Jewish community of Adam have issued a warning against hitchhiking, and have notified residents that it is prohibited to travel between Shag and Adam by foot under any circumstance.
Additional IDF reinforcements are on the way to help ensure security in the area, as Central Command orders leave for all soldiers suspended immediately.
The Hamas terror group praised the murder of Dvir Sorek and vowed to carry out more terror attacks in order to murder Jews.
Security forces launched a large-scale manhunt for the Muslim terrorists who murdered Dvir Sorek. The IDF was working on the growing assumption that the soldier, who was not in uniform and was unarmed, had first been abducted and that he had not been murdered at the site where his body was found.
The body of 19-year-old IDF soldier Dvir Sorek was discovered early Thursday morning brutally stabbed outside the Jewish community of Migdal Oz in Gush Etzion, prompting a massive manhunt for the Muslim terrorists behind the terror attack.
Troops began to search the area and found his cellphone near the community of Neve Daniel before his body was found at 03.00 near the community of Migdal Oz with multiple stab wounds.
Dvir was a student at a religious seminary in the Jewish community of Migdal Oz, and had joined the IDF while continuing his studies, in a program known in Hebrew as “hesder”.
Dvir was the grandson of Rabbi Binyamin Herling, who was murdered in a terror attack on Mount Ebal near Shechem, in October 2000.
PM Netanyahu, who also serves as defense minister, on Thursday afternoon arrived at the Defense Ministry’s Kiriya headquarters in Tel Aviv, where he was receiving continuous updates of the search for Dvir’s murderers.
