Pursuant to operational and intelligence activity by the Israeli Security Agency (Shin Bet), IDF and the special anti-terrorism unit of the Israel Police that was carried out overnight Saturday, the terrorists who carried out the shooting attack near Homesh this past Thursday, in which Yehuda Dimentman was murdered and two other people were wounded, were captured.

Four suspects were detained in the village of Silat al-Harithiya, northwest of Jenin, over their involvement in the murder.

In the framework of the field investigation, the suspected weapon used to carry out the terror attack was seized.

IDF, Shin Bet and Border Police forces recorded significant progress in the manhunt for the terrorists over the weekend. Most of the efforts focused on the intelligence level, in an attempt to obtain documentation of the terrorists fleeing and to collect findings on the ground, in order to track them down.

In addition to arrests, security forces confiscated security cameras in Palestinian Arab town in the Jenin and Shechem (Nablus) areas.

The investigation has found that two terrorists ambushed yeshiva students in the bushes and fired from a short distance at the car in which Dimentman and his two friends were riding. Yehuda was pronounced dead at the scene, and his friends were evacuated to hospital.

Footage from the vehicle in which Dimentman traveled with his friends was published Saturday night by Kan 11 News.

The footage, a product of the vehicle's dashcam, shows the flashes of gunfire from the terrorists' weapon.

15 bullet holes were found in the vehicle, which the victims continued driving as they called for medical aid.
