The Walla news site speaks with a senior security official who provides new details on last week’s terror attack in Elad.

According to the official, the two Palestinian suspects entered Israel illegally through a hole in the West Bank security barrier. This was the 17th time the pair had entered the country illegally.

From there, they were picked up by Oren Ben Yiftah who drove them to Elad. Upon arrival at an amusement park parking lot in the central town, the suspects murdered Ben Yiftah. They then waited with the victim’s body in the car several hours until it got dark before they continued their killing spree, the security official tells Walla.

The vehicle was left at the scene.
