Israel Police released a video on Monday showing officers from Yamam (Israel’s National Counter-terrorism Unit) arresting the terrorist suspected of the murder of Esther Horgan last week near Tel Menashe.
The footage, recorded by the helmet cameras of the Yamam officers, shows the officers carrying out searches in the Palestinian village of Toura near Jenin.
The officers then enter the home of the suspect and arrest him. The arrest, carried out on Thursday, was a joint operation by Israel Police, the IDF and Border Police.
