IDF arrests 6 brothers and cousins of the Muslim terrorists who murdered Dvir Sorek
Security forces have arrested six brothers and cousins of the Muslim terrorists who brutally murdered 19-year-old IDF soldier and Yeshiva student Dvir Sorek.
The arrested are all members of the Atafra clan from the Arab village of Beit Kahil in the Hevron area.
Less than 48 hours after the body of Dvir Sorek was found on the side of the road near the Jewish community of Migdal Oz, IDF forces apprehended the two Muslim terrorists behind the murder.
The terrorists were identified as 24-year-old Hamas terrorist Nazir Saleh Khalil Atafra and 30-year-old Qasem Araf Khalil Atafra, both from Beit Kahil.
On August 8, Dvir’s body was found with multiple stab wounds, on the side of a road near the seminary where he studied. The soldier was neither armed nor in uniform when his body was found.
The terror attack was carried out as Dvir was making his way from the square near the entrance to the Jewish community of Efrat to the nearby community of Migdal Oz.
The Muslim terrorists are believed to have followed Dvir in a vehicle before murdering him and fleeing the scene.
