Israel Police on Thursday secured a gag order on two separate terror attacks which occurred this past week, including the shooting on Monday night near Shvut Rahel which took the life of 27-year-old Malachi Rosenfeld of Kochav Hashahar.
The second incident was the targeting of a Magen David Adom ambulance that was hit by several bullets as it passed near the settlement of Beit El. No one was hurt in the attack.
Judea and Samaria police said that nothing can be said about the details of either investigation or whether or not the gag order indicates that security forces have found a link between the two incidents.
Over the past two weeks there have been a series of terror attacks in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, and the IDF and the Shin Bet believe they are the result of one or two terror cells based in the West Bank. The shooting attacks in the West Bank have shown planning and a level of infrastructure and support that don’t fit typical “lone wolf” attacks.
