Senior officer: Not sure that the whole Ofra attack cell was arrested

A senior officer reacted, Thursday to the elimination of one of the terrorists involved in Sunday night's shooting attack at the Ofra Junction and the arrest of several others, saying, "We are in a process, and it is not certain that the entire squad has been caught, and therefore we are preparing to defend the settlements and the civilians."

The officer also said, "Deterrence exists but in order to preserve it, we need to keep working. We have recently seen attempts to carry out terrorist attacks, and the weaker the [Palestinian] authority is, the more likely terrorists are to carry out attacks."
