A distant relative of the suspected guman in Friday's Tel Aviv shooting and a member of the Arara Local Council, told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday evening that “the family feels the stress” of the investigation.

“It is stupid to blame the parents. Could they have a system to hide him?” Ahmad Milhem exasperatingly said, adding that it is impossible to hide the kid in a house with the entire country searching for him.

As per the investigation, he said the police have arrested members of suspect Nashat Milhem's family and questioned them and other contacts, including old friends from school. “This will continue,” he added.

Milhem understands that the police are doing everything to find the alleged attacker.

Mudar Yunis, head of the municipality of Arara, the alleged attacker’s hometown, told the Post that there is no noticeable increased security presence in the town.

He declined to discuss any specific issues related to the case.
