Security forces confiscated a Hyundai in the Beit Fajar village near Bethlehem on Friday evening, according to Palestinian reports.

The driver of the vehicle, 29-year-old Amar Mansur Thawabata, was also arrested.

Earlier on Friday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted that the manhunt for the suspects was on. “We are going to catch these murderers. According to a report I received a little while ago, we’re on our way there and it won’t be long before it becomes clear.”


Yasser Okbi also tweeted photos of the suspected vehicle being taken away. 



The suspect is accused of being involved in the murder of 19-year-old Dvir Sorek. His body was found with multiple stab wounds outside the gate of the Migdal Oz settlement. 

Sorek was in the Hesder military program at the Orthodox Machanayim Yeshiva. He would have been serving in the IDF and attending Yeshiva at the same time.
