An indictment was filed Thursday in the military court in Judea against the mother of the terrorist who committed the massacre in Neve Tzuf (Halamish) last Friday night.

Ibtisam al-Abed was charged with incitement after praising her son's act of murder in an interview the next day.

Last Friday, Yosef Salomon, 70, his daughter Chaya, 46, and his son Elad, 35, were stabbed to death by Arab terrorist Omar al-Abed after he broke into their house during a family celebration in honor of the grandson’s birth.

Hundreds of people participated Thursday in the Brit Milah (circumcision) ceremony for the grandson born to the Salomon family last week.

The baby's name is "Ari Yosef." His parents, Shmuel and Chen Salomon, said that they invited all of Israel to participate in their joy "so that the Salomon family will be remembered as happy and joyous and not sad and hurt."

Shmuel said that his son was named "Ari" after his wife's late grandfather, and that the middle name "Yosef" was added in memory of his father, murdered in the brutal terrorist attack last Friday night.

Earlier, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, visited the home of the Salomon family in Elad prior to the Brit Milah ceremony.
