Israeli security forces continue manhunt after those responsible for Rabbi Raziel Shevah’s murder

IDF troops have continued to enforce the blockade at the entrance to the Palestinian city of Nablus and to the Palestinian villages in the area of the Jewish outpost Havat Gilad, following the attack two days ago in which Rabbi Raziel Shevah was killed. The effort by the intelligence agencies to apprehend the unknown assailants who perpetrated the attack is also ongoing.

According to an ongoing investigation, it is believed that the perpetrators were part of a cell that planned the terror attack in advance and that they were not lone-wolf assailants, in part due to the precision fire on Rabbi Shevah’s vehicle and the use of a military-grade M16 rifle.
