IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Aviv Kohavi on Sunday toured the scene of the deadly terrorist attack that took place in Kiryat Arba late Saturday night and ordered forces to increase security in the area. Ronen Hanania, a 50-year-old resident of the Jewish community, was shot dead by the Palestinian terrorist outside a convenience store on Saturday vening.
Kohavi was presented with additional steps to increase security in the area, including the deployment of additional troops and the blocking of roads in the area of Hebron.
The Chief of Staff visited after Israeli troops mapped the terrorist’s home ahead of its possible demolition.
The terrorist behind the attack
The terrorist, identified as Hebron resident Muhammed Kamel al-Jaabari, was run over by the settlement’s military security coordinator after opening fire with an M-16 rifle in a store near the Ashmoret checkpoint. He was then shot dead by an off-duty IDF officer.
According to reports, several members of Jaabari’s family are associated with Hamas, including his brother who was released as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange deal and exiled to Gaza.
