Yamam, the Police elite National Counter Terror Unit, and the Shin Bet on Sunday arrested the terrorists who carried out the shooting attack near the Homesh in Samaria last Thursday that killed Yehuda Dimentman, 25. The four terrorists were picked up in the village of Silat al-Harithiya in the Jenin area on suspicion that two of them carried out the shooting and two assisted the operation which involved opening fire from an ambush on a civilian car with yeshiva students.
The Israeli forces also confiscated the two weapons that had been used in the attack, and a vehicle that had allegedly been used by the suspects. The four Arabs were arrested without a single shot being fired after the security forces surrounded the house where they were staying and they surrendered.
According to the suspicion, two Arabs opened fire at a car in which students of the Homesh yeshiva were driving near the outpost. After the shooting, which according to security forces was from an ambush, the driver continued to drive to the nearby settlement of Shavei Shomron, where the wounded received medical treatment, and the death of Dimentman, a resident of Shavei Shomron, was called. Two other passengers, who were lightly and moderately injured, were evacuated to Meir Hospital.
