Two Palestinians Charged With ‘Terrorist’ Murder Of Reuven Schmerling H”YD


Israeli prosecutors filed charges on Sunday against two Palestinians suspected of murdering their Jewish employer this month in what authorities have labelled a “terror attack”, the justice ministry said.

According to the indictment, Yousef Kamil, 20, and Mohammed Abu Elrob, 19, both of Qabatiya in the northern West Bank, murdered Reuven Schmerling in a premeditated attack at their workplace in the Arab Israeli city of Kafr Qassem on October 4.

Schmerling, a resident of the nearby Jewish settlement of Elkana, was stabbed and beaten to death by the two in his coal warehouse, prosecutors say. The suspects admitted during interrogations to planning a stabbing attack prior arriving illegally in Israel, and sought to avenge the death of a friend who was shot and killed during an attempted stabbing attack at the Jalameh checkpoint.
