IDF forces continued their search for the terrorists responsible for the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach in Havat Gilad throughout Saturday and Sunday morning in an operation in the West Bank village of Burqin. Security forces arrested several suspects during the night.

While searching for the head of the terror cell that committed the attack, security forces surrounded and sealed off several houses in the village. One of the arrested individuals is suspected to have aided the terror cell.

As previously reported by JOL, at least one Palestinian was killed yesterday during clashes with the IDF in Burqin, the Palestinian media has reported. Two weeks ago, Israeli security forces raided homes in the city of Jenin and partly demolished the home of one of the terrorists involved in the deadly attack.
