Arrests made in murders of West Bank family

A month after members of the Fogel family (parents Udi, 36 and Ruth, 35, and their children Yoav, 11, Elad, 4 and Hadas, 3 months) were brutally murdered at their home in Itamar in the West Bank while they were sleeping, the Commander of IDF forces overseeing the Shomron Regional Brigade, announces that  two of the alleged killers have been captured in the nearby Palestinian village of Awarta.

Col. Nimrod Aloni says the motivation of terror groups in the West Bank to execute attacks against Israeli civilians is still high.

“The murders of five family members including a 3 month baby constitute a crossing of all red lines, said IDF Lt. Col. Avital Leibovich.

“The IDF has invested in numerous operational and intelligence efforts and has worked closely with other security forces in order to find those responsible for this vicious murder.”

  1. Amen, good job IDF. I hope and pray Israel will not release either person as they have done in the past. As a warning, I recommend these two be made examples of if convicted.
