Barghouti, along with his brother, carried out the shooting attack near the settlement of Ofra on December 9, 2018, in which a baby, the late Amiad Yisrael Ish-Ran, was murdered.

A few days later, Israeli forces attempted to arrest Barghouti. After he initially attempted to evade authorities by both gunfire and vehicular assault, he was killed.
