Hamas Cell Behind West Bank Shooting Arrested

Five members of a Hamas cell responsible for the murder of an Israeli couple in the West Bank have been arrested, Israeli security officials announced.

Eitam and Naama Henkin were shot in front of their four children while driving in the West Bank by assailants in another car. The Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security service, announced that each member of the cell has admitted to having had assigned roles in the attack: a driver, two gunmen, someone to clear the way for the car, and a commander, who recruited the other members but was not physically present. All five members were reported to have been involved in other attacks in the past.
