The terrorists who killed 29-year-old Ido Zoldan near Kedumim last month used weapons the Palestinian Authority received from Jordan with Israel's approval, a government official said Monday.
Palestinian security officers were behind the November 19 killing of Zoldan, a father of two from Shavei Shomron, when he drove past the Palestinian village of al-Punduk.
The three members of the terrorist cell were members of the PA security forces. Two of the three were arrested by the IDF, and the third is in Palestinian custody.
Since Hamas took control of the Gaza Strip from Fatah in June, Israel has allowed a number of shipments of Kalashnikov rifles and bullets from Jordan to the PA in the West Bank to bolster its security forces.
