Lapidנועם מושקוביץ', דוברות הכנסת

Prime Minister Yair Lapid on Tuesday lauded the Israel Police, Shin Bet internal security agency, and IDF for capturing Eslam Froukh, the terrorist who carried out the double bombing attack in Jerusalem last month.

"Following a wide-ranging intelligence effort and investigation, the security forces have apprehended the reprehensible terrorist who carried out the double bombing in Jerusalem," Lapid said.

"I closely monitored this complex investigation and was updated on its specifics. I commend the ISA, the Israel Police, the IDF and all the security forces for their investigation that led to the apprehending of this terrorist."

"Just as we pledged, we found him. Israel will find every terrorist who attacks our citizens and will deal with them to the fullest extent of the law. The fight against terrorism continues around the clock. During the investigation an additional suspect was arrested, who is not involved in this attack but planned to carry out an additional attack in the capital, thereby saving the lives of Israeli citizens."

"We will continue to fight terrorism and deal with terrorists and those who dispatch them to the fullest extent of the law. The State of Israel will do its utmost to deliver security for its citizens."

"I send condolences, on my behalf and on behalf of the Government of Israel, to the families of young Aryeh Shechopek and Tadasa Tashume, who were murdered in the double bombing, may their memories be for a blessing."
