As Erez Levanon HY”D, the settler who was R”L murdered on Sunday by Arab terrorists (as reported HERE on YW) was being buried in the Kfar Etzion settlement this afternoon, his murderers were arrested by the Israeli Security Forces.
The two suspects were identified as Khader Abu Daya and Moussa Khalil. Following up on a lead, security forces raided a building in Beit Omar and found the suspects. They were arrested and transferred to Shin Bet custody for interrogation.
According to defense establishment estimates, no official Palestinian organization was behind the attack, which was initiated by the two suspects.
In their interrogation, the two confessed to carrying out the murder, which they said was planned earlier, including patrols of the area. On the day of the attack, the two left their village in possession of knives, and after spotting Levanon they ambushed him and stabbed him to death for “nationalistic motives.”
Levanon leaves behind a wife and three children.
