IDF seals off candy shop of terrorist’s family
The Israeli Army welded shut the entrance to the sweet shop, located in the village of al-Ram and below the family’s home; residents of the village confronted Israeli security forces in the process; in a separate operation, a house in Nablus purchased by the terrorist who supplied the weapons used in the attack that killed Na’ama and Eitam Henkin was demolished.
The terrorist managed to kill two people—1st Sgt. Yossi Kirma and Levana Malihi—before being shot and killed himself by security forces.
The candy shop was closed by decree of Head of Central Command Maj. Gen. Roni Numa. The shop is set up on the first floor of the building, underneath the terrorist’s home. The welding roused members of the village to physically confront the security forces on the job, who contained the violence before it escalated further.
Following the attack, celebrations broke out in East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip, and candy was handed out to passersby. Palestinian media reported that the candy was provided by the terrorist’s family.
The terrorist’s daughter also put out a video after word of the attack broke out, praising her father and saying their relationship “was excellent.”
In addition, the IDF also destroyed a house of Amjad Elewi, who was responsible for supplying the terror cell with the weapons that were used to kill Na’ama and Eitam Henkin in 2015 in front of their four children. He was convicted and is now serving two life sentences.
Elewi’s house was only now demolished due to a delay caused by petitions made to the High Court against the move, which based their arguments on the notion that while he did supplied the weapons, he did not carry out the attack.
In December 2015, the IDF destroyed a house in Nablus belonging to the head of the terror cell that killed the Eitams, had recruited people to his cell, guided them how to execute the attack and made sure to provide them with weapons.
