Palestinian media reported that the IDF early Saturday morning demolished the house of Morad Bader Abdallah Adis, in the city of Beit Amra west of the city of Yata, south of Hebron.

An initial security assessment showed the terrorist entered Otniel, came to the Meir home, stabbed her to death and then fled.

Meir, a mother of six, was a nurse at Soroka University Medical Center in Beersheba.

Two days after the murder, Adis was arrested in his home, located three kilometers from the settlement of Otniel. He was detained and interrogated by the Shin Bet (Israeli Security Agency).

During the investigation, it was revealed that a distant relative of Adis was killed after attempting a stabbing attack two months prior.
