The Shin Bet, IDF and Judea and Samaria district police uncovered an
extensive Hamas terror structure in Ramallah and the Binyamin region,
and arrested suspects including two men who confessed to taking part
in the brutal October 2000 lynching of two IDF soldiers, security
forces announced Thursday.
Arrests were made in June of Palestinian security suspects, some of
whom formed a Hamas field command in that region of the West Bank,
Two of those questioned confessed to being involved in the beating to
death of IDF reservists Yossi Avrahami and Vadim Nurzhitz at the PA
Ramallah police station, where the two were taken after getting lost.
The two suspects were charged at the Judea Military Court on August
5, police added.
“We notified the families of the victims about the arrests after the
investigation, and before publication of it. We acted with
sensitivity,” police spokesman Dudi Asraf added.
“We told the families that the Israel Police and the security forces
have not forgotten their sons, and that those involved in the crime
will be tried irrespective of the 12 years that passed since the
crime was committed,” Asraf said. (© 1995-2011, The Jerusalem Post
