Israel Police have arrested Ziad Awad, one of the 1,027 terrorists released two-and-a-half years ago in exchange for IDF hostage Gilad Shalit, on suspicion that Awad was responsible for the murder of Baruch Mizrahi  on Passover eve near Hebron.

Mizrahi, a senior police officer, was on his way to a holiday Seder meal when he was ambushed and murdered, reportedly by Awad, a resident of Idna, an Arab village near Hebron.

Mizrahi’s wife was also wounded in the attack.

Police said Monday that they unearthed the signs that identified Awad as Mizrahi’s killer during the manhunt for Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shayer and Naftali Frenkel.

Evidence includes DNA samples, finger prints and other incriminating material were collected at the attack scene.

An indictment was filed today (Jun. 23) against Awad for murder and attempted murder. In addition, Awad’s son, A Adin Awad (18), was also arrested for abetting the attack by helping his father flee the scene.

Ziad Awad (L) and his son Izz Eddin (R) arriving to Ofer Mlitary court on June 23, 2014. They were arrested on May 7 by the Israel Police’s elite counter-terrorism unit in collaboration with the Shin Bet security service for the April 14 shooting of B aruch Mizrachi, the 47-year-old father of five. The senior Awad is accused of carrying out the shooting, while his son allegedly assisted him in planning the shooting and coordinating the escape.

Noam Shalit, who pressured successive Israeli governments to make the lopsided prisoner swap instead of demanding action by international human rights groups, told YNet on the arrest, “I didn’t know that one of the terrorists freed in the deal killed Baruch Mizrachi. It wasn’t me that put together the list of prisoners to release.”

Shalit added, “We didn’t demand the release of these prisoners or others.”

Here is an ad from the Free Gilad Shalit campaign, consisting of former Shabak chiefs demanding the release of terrorists, and even saying they won’t pose a danger:

Too many of those involved in freeing these terrorists deny their responsibility.

  1. Dvorah Chanah says:

    Most taxi drivers on erev hagim are Arabs. I'm sure they are well aware of the "opportunity".

  2. Be sure to send Obama and Kerry notices every time one of the released terrorists is confirmed as having committed another heinous crime. They bear responsibility for this as well, having pressured Israel to release terrorist prisoners as part of the "peace" deal.

    Obama especially needs to know as he is apparently releasing GITMO terrorists after they promise not to be bad again. /s

  3. Every terrorist should receive capital punishment. Senior Shalit is a cold blooded bastard,by declarig he did not ask that terrorists be realeased for his negligent goofy son Gilead! The father Shalit repayed Netanyahu for having his son released by immediately become a Member of knesset of the opposition left Labor party!!

  4. Uzi Kattan says:

    Netanyahoo has this officer's blood on his hands. He spilled his blood! He released murderers which only emboldened them, hed they been executed they wouldn't be able to murder again.

  5. Douglas Kent says:

    The terrorists in the photo are laughing because they know Natanyahu wants to release them.
