On Thursday, IDF Sergeant Yuval Mor-Yosef and Corporal Yosef Cohen were murdered by Arab terrorists in a shooting attack next to Givat Assaf, north of Jerusalem

An initial investigation revealed that the terrorist arrived at a hitchhiking post at Givat Assaf with his vehicle before stepping out and opening fire at those assembled there. The two soldiers were killed immediately by the gunfire at point blank range while the other soldier and Sabag were injured.

The terrorist then fled towards Ramallah, where he abandoned his vehicle. The IDF and Shin Bet have launched a massive manhunt after the terrorists and are conducting searches in a number of villages.
