IDF soldiers overnight Tuesday apprehended the terrorists who murdered Rabbi Michael Mark in front of his children earlier this month.
The terrorists were apprehended during an IDF operation in the village of Surif, north of Hevron.
One of the terrorists, Mohammed Fakih, was killed during clashes with the troops. The rest of the terrorists were taken in for questioning.
None of the Israeli soldiers were injured in the clashes.
Earlier it was reported that the sides exchanged gunfire during the operation, after the troops encountered riots in the village and responded by using riot control measures.
Palestinian media also reported that electricity to local villages was cut off.
