A 17-year-old Palestinian resident of Hebron was arrested in the area of Ein Yael by police on Sunday, he was carrying a knife and had no permits to enter the country, Police spokesperson reported. 


Ein Yael, near the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, is where 19-year-old Ori Ansbacher was raped and killed by Arafat Irfaiya in February. 
Irfaiya was from Hebron and was caught while trying to hide in a mosque. 


Presumably because of the rape, no Palestinian group has voiced support for him or taken credit for the attack.


The brutal murder shocked Israel, leading to a wave of protests demanding terrorists be handed death sentences, as well as an outpouring of grief over the death of Ansbacher.
