Name of Beersheba bank shooter cleared for release

The name of the perpetrator of the Beersheba bank shooting has been cleared for release: Itamar Alon, 40-year-old resident of the city. According to suspicions, Alon shot and killed four people in the bank branch and killed himself.


Alon previously worked as a security officer for the city's municipality and fell into economic difficulties. His actions apparently followed a dispute with the bank's employees over a debt. (Ilana Curiel)
