Jordan Valley Murder ‘a Gift to the Palestinian People’

Two suspects have revealed under questioning that the murder was a deliberate terrorist attack. Sources in the military caused anger when, in the days after the killing, they suggested Ofer had been murdered in a robbery gone wrong rather than a deliberate terrorist attack.

The suspects told investigators that they had come to Brosh two weeks before the killing to gather information in advance of a planned violent theft. However, after realizing that Ofer was a retired senior IDF officer, they decided to kill him.
