Two unidentified relatives of the Halamish terrorist, Omer al-Abed, were arrested overnight in the village of Kobar, where they live.

The operation was conducted in cooperation with the IDF, police, Border Police, and Israeli security agencies.

The charge is that two relatives knew of Abed's intention to carry out the attack. They have been taken in for further investigation. His brother, father, and mother have already been arrested. The home of the family is slated to be demolished.

Abed entered a private home last month in Halamish, in the West Bank, and stabbed to death three people during Shabbat dinner.
