Manhunt continues for the Muslim terrorists who murdered Golani soldier Amit Ben Ygal

IDF troops are operating in the Arab village of Ya’bad in northern Samaria, as the manhunt continues for three Muslim terrorists who threw a large rock from the roof of a home and murdered Golani First Sgt Amit Ben Ygal.

According to Arab reports, the IDF arrested at least 16 suspects so far this morning, as forces returned to the Arab village where Amit was murdered.

The troops are currently searching homes and questioning villagers in an effort to find the terrorists.


Violent riots broke out earlier today during a raid in the Arab village of Fawwar in the Hevron area, with Muslim terrorists throwing rocks, boulders, firebombs and explosive devices towards IDF forces operating in the area.

IDF troops responded with riot dispersal means including live fire, eliminating a 15-year-old terrorist and wounding four others, two of them seriously.

One IDF soldier was lightly wounded during the violent riots.

Yesterday at around 4 am, a unit from the Golani Reconnaissance Battalion arrived at the Arab village of Ya’bad near Jenin in northern Samaria to arrest four wanted Muslim terrorists.

About half an hour later, a large stone was dropped on them from a rooftop, critically injuring 21-year-old staff Seargent Amit Ben Yigal.

The IDF says he was wearing a helmet. He was evacuated via helicopter to the Rambam Hospital in Haifa, where he was pronounced dead.

Hundreds gathered Tuesday afternoon at the military section of the cemetery in Beer Yaakov for the funeral of Amit.
