Hamas Cell Arrested for Murder of Rav Eitam and Naama Henkin Hy”d


eitam henkinThe Shin Bet said on Monday it had apprehended five members of a Hamas cell in Nablus for the murder of Rav Eitam and Naama Henkin Hy”d in a shooting attack in the West Bank on Thursday.

The cell was responsible for two previous shootings. After the shooters opened fire at the Henkin vehicle, their car stopped and two cell members shot at the Henkins at point-blank range.

During the shooting, one of the gunmen, Karem Razek, was accidentally wounded by another cell member and dropped his gun, which was later found by security forces.

It is possible that Razek’s injury led the cell members to leave the scene quickly, without hurting the four Henkin children in the back seat.

  1. This is strange because it was a Fatah unit, not Hamas, that claimed responsibility for the cold-blooded murder of Rabbi Henkin and his wife in front of their children.
