IDF Demolishes Hebron Home of Genady’s Killer

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

Israeli security forces and engineers destroyed the Hebron home of the Arab terrorist who murdered a Kiryat Arba resident on December 7, 2015.

Genady Kaufman, z’l, 40, was repeatedly stabbed in the chest by Abed al Rahman Masoudah, 20, as he carried out his vicious terror attack outside the Cave of the Patriarchs in Judea.

Kaufman was critically wounded barely a ten minute walk from his home in nearby Kiryat Arba. He died of his wounds three weeks later, after fighting for life in Jerusalem at Shaare Zedek Medical Center’s intensive care unit.

He was the 25th Israeli victim to fall under the current wave of terror.

The terrorist was immediately shot dead on site by security forces.

The question now is whether Iran will pay this terrorist’s family $30,000 for the destruction of its home, as recently promised. If so, how and when will that international sponsor of terror against Israel manage to channel the funds to the family?

IDF, Shin Bet Capture Accused Terrorist Murderer of Avraham Hasno, z”l

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

IDF soldiers from the elite Duvdevan unit and Israeli intelligence agents arrested the suspected killer of 55-year-old Avraham Hasno, z’l in a joint operation in the southern Hebron Hills.

They took the suspect into custody overnight from a location near the Arab village of Dahariya, near Yattir.

The suspect is accused of murdering Hasno in a terrorist vehicle hit-and-run attack on October 20, 2015 at the Fuar Junction near Hebron and Kiryat Arba, after he was ambushed in a rock-throwing roadblock at the site. He was run over twice by the Arab truck driver in mid-October.

Local Arab residents cheered and whistled while paramedics unsuccessfully tried to save his life.

The murderer was initially spared Israeli arrest by immediately turning to the Palestinian Authority, who took him into custody.

The suspect was detained (read: protected) until recently at the Palestinian Authority police station in Dahariya, according to a statement by the Shin Bet.

Subsequent to his release by the PA authorities several days ago, he was arrested by Israeli forces following much effort and intelligence work.

The detainee has been transferred to security personnel for further investigation and interrogation.
