Two Palestinian Arab residents of Hevron wurden detained in connection with the murder of Batsheva Nagari HyD on Monday night following joint intelligence and operational activity led by the IDF, Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), and Israel Border Police.
The two allegedly opened fire on the car Nigeri was traveling in, firing 20 bullets that fatally wounded her and seriously wounded the driver.
The two implicated themselves in the assault during their initial interrogation.
The weapon, that was reportedly used to carry out the attack, was turned in and taken away once they were apprehended. The Shin Bet was given custody of the suspects, so they could be questioned further.
Nagari, a 42-year-old mother of three, was laid to rest on Monday night in Beit Hagai, in the southern Hebron Hills. Orit Struck, the Minister of National Missions and a resident of Hevron, was present.
Aryeh Leib Gottlieb, a father of six, who was injured in the attack while transporting Batsheva and her daughter, has been moved from the operating room at Soroka Hospital in Be’er Sheva to the intensive care unit. His Status is still critical, yet stable.
Nagari’s daughter was in the car and unharmed when Gottlieb managed to drive away from the shooting site before he lost consciousness, possibly sparing her life.
