Golani Patrol fighter Amit Ben Yigal was killed this morning by a heavy block thrown by a Muslim during an operation in the village of Ya'bad in northern Samaria.

The initial IDF investigation revealed that the attacker was standing on the roof of a three-story house on the outskirts of the village with a large block, and when he noticed Ben Yigal raise his head, threw it at him. It is assumed that the murderer escaped from the structure where the attack was carried out. The GSS and IDF have detained a number of suspects from the village.
