A gag order was lifted permitting reporting that in a joint ISA (Israel Security Agency – Shin Bet), IDF and Israel Police operation, a number of Shechem district terrorists have been taken into custody.
The suspects are residents of Awarta, a PA (Palestinian Authority) autonomous village near Shechem. The two are alleged to have perpetrated an arson attack in a gas station near Yishuv Eli on August 14, 2015. The report states they admitted to the arson attack during interrogation.
One suspect, Majdi Kuarik is 22 and the second, Ahmed Atta Abdaat is 23. The case has been turned over to the IDF prosecutor to file indictments.
