IDF Officials Pay Visit to Nine-Year-Old Terror Victim
The IDF's Head of Central Command, Nitzan Alon, and the head of the Binyamin Brigade, Yosef Pinto, paid a visit to the Glick family of the Binyamin community of Psagot.
Nine-year-old Noam Glick was shot in the neck at close range by a terrorist who infiltrated into the community on Saturday night.
Alon and Pinto were shown the place where the terrorist attacked Noam, met with the Glick family and spoke with Noam and her parents.
On Monday evening, IDF soldiers carried out an arrest operation in the Palestinian Authority Arab village of El-Bireh, which is located next to Psagot.
The Israeli troops arrested Alaa and Fares Adawi, two brothers aged 25 and 26, on suspicion of involvement in the Psagot attack.
The PA has failed to condemn the attack in Psagot, nor has it condemned the murders of IDF soldiers Gabriel (Gal) Kobi and Tomer Hazan.
At a meeting with leftist MKs Monday, PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas would not condemn the recent attacks, as is his obligation under the Oslo Accords. He did say, however, that he condemned “violence on both sides,” adding that he believed Israel and the PA could achieve an agreement in a matter of months.
On Sunday, an official Facebook page run by Abbas’s Fatah movement praised the terrorist who shot Noam Glick, and predicted he would strike again.
Construction and Housing Minister Uri Ariel (Bayit Yehudi) has promised that following the terror attack at Psagot, his ministry will strengthen and enlarge the community.
Ariel also visited the Shaarei Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem, where Noam Glick had been hospitalized after the attack, and met with the nine-year-old.
