Son of suspect in West Bank shooting attack said among those arrested

Palestinian media reports that Muntasir Shalabi, a resident of the West Bank town of Turmusayya, is one of the suspects sought by the Israeli military for involvement in Sunday’s terror attack at Tapuah Junction.

Shalabi’s son Ahmad was arrested by Israeli forces early this morning. According to Palestinian media reports, Israeli forces are still pursuing his father Muntasir.

According to Ahmad’s mother, Palestinian Authority security forces entered the Shibli family’s home hours before Israeli soldiers arrived to arrest him.

“Instead of working for the Palestinian people, they’re against us. They’re failures. All they want are jobs and money,” she tells official Hamas Al-Aqsa TV.
