IDF demolishes homes of 4 Muslim terrorists who brutally murdered Dvir Sorek
BREAKING: IDF, Border Police and Civil Administration forces demolished the homes of four Muslim terrorists who brutally murdered 19-year-old IDF soldier and Yeshiva student Dvir Sorek in August.
The homes were all located in the Arab village of Beit Kahil in the Hevron area.
Violent riots broke out during the operation, with Muslim terrorists setting fire to tires and throwing rocks at IDF forces, who responded with crow dispersal methods.
According to Arab reports, an IDF soldier was lightly wounded during the riots.
In addition, the IDF arrested five Muslim terrorists overnight in Judea and Samaria, who were wanted for involvement in terrorism and violent disorders directed against civilians and security personnel.
The terrorists were turned over to security agencies for further investigation.
As part of an ongoing campaign against illegal weapons, Border Police forces found and seized a local-made Carlo submachine gun and cartridges during a raid in an East Jerusalem shop. Two Muslim terrorists were arrested and transferred for questioning.
The Shin Bet, the IDF, and the Israeli police captured alive the Muslim terrorists who murdered Dvir Sorek, after a two-day manhunt.
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”, which combines Torah studies with military service.
Dvir’s body was found with multiple stab wounds in the early hours of the morning 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.
Muslim cousins Nasir Asafra, 24, and Qassem Asafra, 30, were arrested in August and later charged in the murder of Dvir. Three others were also indicted on terror charges in connection with the murder.
The Muslim terrorists are believed to have followed Dvir in a vehicle before murdering him and fleeing the scene.
