Israel's security forces summarized their pursuit of Ariel terrorist Omar Abu Lila, 19, who on Sunday murdered two Israelis and injured a third.

On Tuesday night, security forces captured and eliminated the terrorist.

"Over the past few days, IDF soldiers have worked together with Shabak (Israel Security Agency) and Border Police to locate Lila and capture him," the IDF said in a statement.

"The capture was successful thanks to intensive efforts in the areas of intelligence, evidence gathering, and operational activities. It is the latest in a string of terrorist eliminations carried out by security forces during the past year.

"In addition, the IDF worked to arrest those who are suspected of aiding the terrorist after he carried out the attack.
