JNS.org – Following an intensive manhunt, the Israel Police and the Shin Bet security agency on Tuesday apprehended the Palestinian terrorist who murdered Dafna Meir, an Israeli mother of six, in her home in Otniel on Sunday.

Morad Bader Abdullah Adais, 16, a resident of one of the Palestinian villages in the area, was taken in for questioning.

Initial investigations revealed that one of Adais’s distant relatives was killed while trying to carry out a terrorist attack two months ago. The defense establishment is looking into the possibility that the Meir murder was a revenge attack.
