Israeli security services’ estimations were right when they repeatedly warned against the calm in the West Bank. The estimations were also right when they said that the Israeli collective punishments against Palestinians won’t end the attacks carried out by individuals.
However, these estimations were not right regarding the courage of the Palestinian attackers, along with their families who have been ready to pay the price of their struggle against the Zionist occupiers.
The Zionist entity has been on alert since Sunday morning, when a Palestinian hero approached the so-called Ariel commercial center, stabbed an Israeli soldier, grabbed his weapon, and began firing at nearby vehicles. He then entered a vehicle whose driver had fled, fired at a hitchhiking station, and escaped.
Several others were injured in the double operation, with Israeli media reporting that the Israeli rabbi who was seriously injured succumbed to his injuries Monday morning.
Israeli occupation forces continued searching for the suspect, who security services have identified as Omar Amin Abu Laila, a 19-year old resident of the West Bank village of Az-Zawiya with no history of security-related offenses.
The occupation army and Shin Bet security service arrested relatives of Abu Laila early on Monday morning.
Zionist settlers called Abu Laila “Rambo” on social media for not only carrying out an individual double attack but for stabbing a soldier and opening fire in more than one place, prompting the occupation authorities and settlers to think first that there are more than one attacker and more than one operation, Al-Akhbar Lebanese daily reported on Monday.
