The father and brother of Mo'taz Khawaja, the Palestinian terrorist who carried out a shooting attack on Tel Aviv's Dizengoff Street Thursday night, were arrested by Israeli security forces in the West Bank village of Ni'lin, Israeli media reported Friday morning.
The two were transferred to the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) for interrogation.
Khawaja was reportedly a Hamas operative, as was his father, according to Walla.
It is unclear at this time if Khawaja's family knew of his intent to carry out the terrorist attack, which seriously wounded three people in Tel Aviv, Walla reported.
During Thursday night's investigation, a Ramle resident turned himself in. The man is suspected of driving people who are in Israel illegally and likely drove the terrorist to the scene of the attack.
Another man, a resident of Ksayfe, was also arrested on suspicion of involvement in the driving operation.
Israeli troops get ready to demolish the home of Tel Aviv terrorist
Israeli troops entered Ni'lin overnight, accompanied by bulldozers and mapped out the Khawaja's home in preparation for its demolition, Army Radio reported.
This follows Israeli Defense Minister Yoav Gallant's calls for the immediate destruction of the Khawaja's home.
Khawaja was a 23-year-old resident of the Palestinian village of Ni'lin near Ramallah in the West Bank. According to Palestinian media reports, he was a Hamas operative who was in Israeli prison twice for holding illegal weapons.
This is a developing story.
