Reports emerged Monday of a new discovery in the as yet unsolved case of a murderous attack on a gay youth center in Tel Aviv, and Ynet has learned that police will summon around 1,000 people to be questioned in connection with the new information.
The investigation of the attack, in which a gunman killed two people, was placed under a gag order since its occurrence almost a year ago.
But it appears that new evidence has emerged from laboratory tests, which uncovered an element shared by thousands of Israelis.
Police mapped out the population, and filtered out a thousand people with whom they intend to speak personally and test.
"A huge number of people need to be checked out," a police official told Ynet. In the meantime, the investigating team will continue probing all other leads.
Police Commissioner Dudi Cohen, who receives updates on all findings personally, said he would spare no resource to solve the case, which he defined as one of the worst attacks Israel had seen.
