Otniel rabbi killer’s family say PA tipped Israel off

The family of a Palestinian terrorist, killed by IDF soldiers earlier Wednesay, says the Palestinian security forces tipped Israel off on his location, Israel Radio reports.

Muhammad al-Fakih is believed to have fired the shot that killed Rabbi Miki Mark in a drive-by shooting on July 1.

Fakih died in the West Bank village of Surif, north of Hebron early Wednesday morning, when the Israel Defense Forces fired anti-tank missiles before bulldozing the house in which he was hunkered down.

Palestinian official Saeb Erekat says Fakih’s death is a “crime,” the radio report says.
