Out for a Nationalist Motive
(Communicated by the ISA)
The following has been cleared for publication:
The Israel Security Agency (ISA), in cooperation with the Israel Police and
the IDF, over the Sukkot holiday, on 5 October 2017, arrested two
Palestinians, residents of Kabatiya, on suspicion of murdering Reuven
Schmerling from the community of Elkana.
Evidence gathered thus far by the ISA indicates that this was a terrorist
attack carried out for a nationalist motive.
The investigation of the suspects is ongoing. Their identities, along with
other details, are under a gag order.
