Israeli soldiers kill gunman who shot dead two brothers, says Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that a gunman who had killed two brothers in Israel “in cold blood,” has been “eliminated.”

His security forces attacked the Palestinian town Jenin and killed at most six people in clashes with suspected terrorists.

They were acting on intelligence that identified the attacker for the fatal shooting of the brothers at Huwara in the West Bank area 10 days ago.

Netanyahu stated that the IDF soldiers, ISA agents, and Israel National Counter-Terrorism Unit Officers had eliminated the terrorist who killed the two amazing brothers Hallel Yaniv and Yigal Yaniv in cold blood.


“Our brave soldiers were able to act with surgical precision in the heart and soul of the murderers’ lair. They deserve my admiration and I send my best wishes to their quick recovery.

“As I have repeatedly said: Whoever hurts us will pay for it.”

Online video shows an intense gun battle between Israeli soldiers and residents of the town.

During the operation, a small Israeli helicopter was also shot down.

Three wanted Palestinians were also arrested in Nablus. According to reports, they are the sons a wanted terrorist.

Tension, threats, and riots since the murders

The murder of the Yaniv brothers aged 21 and 19 led to violent riots in which hundreds of settlers launched vengeance attacks against Huwara.

One Palestinian was also killed when cars and houses were set ablaze.

Major General Yossi Fuss , a top Israeli commander, described the rioting as “a Pogrom”.

Bezalel Shmotrich, an Israeli far-right finance minister, said that Huwara must be “wiped out”. Later, he offered partial retractions.

Israeli minister declares that the Palestinian town must be “wiped out”

Today, some shops are reopening after being forced to close due to the riots.

Palestinians Fear More Attacks

Despite the fact that the town is bustling again, there is a lot of fear that additional attacks may follow.

To prevent any further attacks, residents of Palestine have established a nightly watch in Huwara. Many have been affected by recent violence.

“I have a girl in my home and she called me. Sky News’ Hassan Owda said that she was crying.

“What is the matter?” I inquired. I asked her. She said that they were coming to the house. “I was in the shop and she told me to shut the door.

The shops were reopened and life was a little more normal. The town is still being patrolled by Israeli soldiers, although in smaller numbers. Palestinians who spoke with us said that they are not being protected by the military.

Mohammed Owda stated, “Nobody feels secure here.”

Huwara has 600 shops. They all open at 7 o’clock and close around 7. We asked them why they were closing down and they said it was unsafe. We can’t do business.”
