Israeli Forces Kill Palestinian Terrorist Blamed for Deadly January Drive-by Shooting Attack in West Bank
Israeli forces killed a Palestinian terrorist in the West Bank on Tuesday, saying he was the head of the cell responsible for the Jan. 9 drive-by shooting near Nablus in which Rabbi Raziel Shevach was murdered.
Israel had been hunting the final member of the cell. A week after the attack, commandos killed one of the terrorists involved and captured a another in an operation in Jenin.
Early Tuesday morning, security forces entered the village of Yamoun in search of Ahmad Nasr Jarrar, Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. They found him there armed with an automatic weapon.
“As a result of the operation, the terrorist was shot and killed,” Rosenfeld said.
