The terrorist who carried out the shooting attack at Givat Assaf last week in which two IDF soldiers were murdered was Assam Barghouti, the brother of the terrorist who carried out the attack at the Ofra junction and was eliminated, Salah Amar Barghouti of the village of Kobar.

According to a report by Carmel Dangur on Kan Bet, Assam Barghouti served a prison term in an Israeli prison and was released at the beginning of the year. The defense establishment believes that he will fight with the forces that locate him rather than be arrested.

Assam's brother, Salah Barghouti, was eliminated last week - three days after shooting at civilians standing at the Ofra junction.

In the attack in Ofra, seven people were wounded and a baby, Amiad Yisrael Ish-Ran, was murdered. At the time of the attack, he was in the womb of his mother, Shira Ish-Ran, who was seriously wounded in the attack, forcing doctors to deliver him prematurely, and he died three days later.

In addition to the two murdered soldiers in the attack the Givat Assaf junction, another soldier was critically wounded, and a 20-year-old female resident of Beit El was moderately wounded.

The parents of the critically wounded soldier, Netanel Felber, have called on the public to come together this Shabbat and pray for his recovery. Felber's Hebrew name for prayer is Netanel Ilan ben Shayna Tzipora.
