The IDF has arrested three terrorists who were responsible for the death of Rina Shnerb in August. All three of them live in the Ramallah area and are members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.
Samer Mina Salim Arbid, 44, had been heavily involved in preparing explosives to be used in the Second Intifada against Israel in the early 2000s. He was the one who set up and activated the bomb that killed Rina.
Kassem a-Karim Ragah Shabli, 25, provided the explosives and assisted in the assembly of the bomb, and Yazen Hassin Hassni Mjames, 25, took part in the logistics and execution of the detonation.
In response to the capture, the Shnerb family said that “throughout the entire process we had full confidence in the security forces and we thank them for the effort invested in catching the killers.”
“We call on the government to provide full security to every traveler and on the nation of Israel to continue to live, to travel and to add good throughout our land,” they added.
Rina was murdered by a remotely detonated bomb as she walked on a trail to a spring with her father and brother on August, 23rd. Rina’s father, Rabbi Eitan Shnerb, 46, was lightly injured in the attack, and his son Dvir, 19, more seriously.
