Muslim terrorist behind horrific rape and murder of Israeli girl caught alive near Ramallah mosque
BREAKING: In a joint operation, the Yamam special anti-terror unit and the IDF have arrested the Muslim terrorist who brutally murdered 19-year-old Ori Ansbacher in a horrific terror attack Thursday evening near the Jerusalem’s Biblical Zoo.
The 29-year-old terrorist, identified as Arafat Arfaiah, a resident of Hevron, was caught alive near a mosque in Ramallah and is currently being questioned, the Shin Bet and Israel Police said in a joint statement.
He is a member of the Hamas terror group and was known to the security forces for terrorism-related offenses. He has been staying illegally in Israel.
On Thursday morning, the Muslim terrorist left his home in Hevron with a knife, made his way to the Arab village of Beit Jala and then walked towards the Ein Yael forest, where he noticed Ori and murdered her.
A court-imposed gag order on the terror attack was partially lifted to reveal the arrest of the terrorist, but all other details of the barbaric murder remain barred from publication.
Violent riots broke out when IDF and Yamam forces entered the Arab city of Ramallah. The troops responded with crowd dispersal measures. Five Muslim terrorists were wounded by rubber bullets, according to Arab reports.
“I commend the Shin Bet and Israel Police special anti-terror unit for apprehending – within a few hours – the abhorrent murderer of the late Ori Ansbacher. The long arm of Israel will reach whoever hurts us and we will settle accounts with them. For myself and for the entire people of Israel I would like to express condolences to the Ansbacher family and to support them during their terrible grief,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said.
Ori was serving in the Civilian National Service (Sherut Leumi), working in a youth treatment center in Emek Rafaim. She was missing since Thursday afternoon.
Ori was found raped, stabbed 12 times and murdered by a Muslim terrorist Thursday evening in the Ein Yael forest, located near the Jerusalem’s Biblical Zoo and the Arab village of Walaja.
