Police Ins.-Gen. David Cohen said the investigation into Teitel's activities was a "complex security" operation carried out jointly by the Shin Bet and the Israel Police. He added that "professional units" in the police's national headquarters in Jerusalem and the Jerusalem District Police were involved in the investigation. "A dark dangerous world has been uncovered, in which human lives were taken, and others injured, against what appears to be an extremist ideological background," Cohen added. Cohen praised Shin Bet and police investigators for their "professional and strenuous investigation," as well as the cooperation between the two organizations.
