In a night-time raid, IDF soldiers arrested 27-year old Diaa Hamarsheh’s brother on Wednesday, a day after Hamarsheh illegally entered Israel from the Samarian village of Yabad, adjacent to Jenin, and killed five people in a shooting attack. The terrorist’s brother was among the five terrorists apprehended on suspicion of being involved in the slaughter.

The IDF has thwarted 15 terrorist attacks in Judea and Samaria as well as pre-1967 Israel, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on Tuesday while visiting the IDF’s Judea-Samaria headquarters on the outskirts of El-Bireh.
