Father of Elad terror suspect says hasn’t heard from son in 2 days

The father of one of the suspected Elad attackers tells Palestinian media that he last saw his son two days ago and had not heard from him since.

As’ad al-Rifa’i is one of two Palestinians believed to have killed three Israelis yesterday in Elad in a deadly terror attack.

“All I know is that my son went to go work with his friend Subhi in Ramallah. That’s it, nothing more,” Yousef al-Rifa’i says.

Yousef says that his son As’ad worked in construction in Israel and occasionally helped out his friend Subhi’s electrical business. Israeli authorities suspect Subhi of committing the attack along with As’ad.

“No one has told us anything — not the Jews, not the Palestinian Authority,” Yousef adds.
