Tuesday morning, Palestinian Authority Arabs published a video on social media showing the house in which the head of the terror cell that murdered Rabbi Raziel Shevach nearly a month ago had been hiding until he was eliminated by IDF forces several hours earlier.
Ahmad Nasser Jarar, who participated personally in the murder of Rabbi Shevach and was the key member of the terrorist group, waseliminated early Tuesday morning in a joint operation of the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), the IDF and the Israel Police. The event was cleared for publication shortly afterwards.
During his arrest, the terrorist left the building in which he hid and was shot dead by the forces. An old M-16 was found on his body. There were no casualties among the Israeli forces.
Rabbi Shevach was murdered in a shooting attack last month near Havat Gilad in Samaria. The terrorists fired at Rabbi Shevach's vehicle at close range and then fled the scene.
Jarar was the only member of the cell who had not yet been captured by Israeli security forces. Since the attack, the IDF and the Shin Bet had been conducting a manhunt for him and had blocked the city of Shechem (Nablus) and other nearby villages.
Investigations carried out by the Shin Bet indicate that the cell headed by Jarar was involved in additional attempts to carry out terrorist attacks and in planning other terrorist attacks. The other terrorists arrested by security forces are being interrogated, and a gag order has been imposed on the details of the investigation.
