An improvised explosive device planted in the road blew up as the family passed while hiking Friday morning towards the Ein Buvin spring near the Jewish community of Dolev in the Samaria hills. Rina’s 19-year-old brother and 46-year-old father, Rabbi Eitan Shnerb, remain hospitalized with serious injuries. Rina was laid to rest on Friday before sunset.

Two of the men who were reportedly arrested during IDF raids in the village of Ein Arik were residents of the village, seven kilometers (four miles) west of Ramallah, according to Ynet. The third suspect who was arrested was said to be a resident of the nearby village of Ein Qinya.

It’s not clear how the three are connected to the attack; however, IDF soldiers reportedly also confiscated surveillance cameras from local businesses and set up security checkpoints as well.
