Today (Tuesday), an initial investigation of the deadly Har Adar terror attack reveals that both of the guards operated without fault. According to the investigation, the terrorist showed the guards his work permit and after they turned, he shot them in the back.

It appears that the terrorist shot at least 10 bullets in a selective and precise manner before security forces managed to respond. Therefore, there will likely be a change in the entry procedures for Palestinians into the settlement in order to prevent the possibility of direct contact with security forces.

During the evening, the IDF and the Shin Bet continued to operate in the region of the terrorist's hometown. Tomorrow, Palestinian workers from the same town as well as neighboring towns will be prohibited from leaving.
