“Dvir Sorek, 19, who was stabbed to death, was one of the participants in this discussion group. In no way we can imagine that someone we met yesterday will be the victim of tomorrow."
According to the Wafa Palestinian News Agency, the IDF detained six people in the Palestinian village of Beit Kahil, north of Hebron.
Grossman lost his son Uri, who was a soldier fighting Hezbollah in the Second Lebanon War in 2006.
The two men were arrested over the weekend.
In a statement Yoav Sorek issued Saturday night after learning that his son’s killers had been captured, he said, “we thank the security forces for quickly capturing the terrorists."
Earlier on Friday it was reported that IDF forces are clamping down on Hebron, believing that the terrorists who murdered Sorek are hiding there, after possibly having split.
“Our dear and beloved Dvir, in a few days we were supposed to celebrate your 19th [birthday],” his father, Yoav Sorek eulogized.
The previous kidnapping and murder of three led to 2014's Operation Protective Edge.
