Netanyahu: Mizrahi's killer is Hamas man, I've ordered forces to demolish his house

Speaking at a Likud faction meeting Monday morning, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the Shin Bet, police and IDF "for solving the murder of the Chief Superintendent Baruch Mizrahi."


It was cleared for publication that Mizrahi's murder is Ziad Awad, a Palestinian freed as part of the prisoner exchange deal which saw Sgt. Gilad Shalit go free for over 1,000 prisoners.


"I have ordered the terrorists house destroyed," Netanyahu said, adding that Ziad is a "Hamas man, and his arrest is part of the overall effort we are making to fight Hamas." (Moran Azulay)
