The Palestinian father of four who killed three Israelis at Har Adar on Tuesday morning was a “completely normal” and “good-natured” man who worked as a cleaner for a group of families at the settlement, one of the residents who employed him said soon after the shooting.

Interviewed on Israel Radio, Michal Avidor said she was “on my way to the school to tell my children that the man who’s been cleaning our house for the past two and a half years was the terrorist.” The gunman was identified as Nimer Jamal, 37, from the adjacent village of Bayt Surik.

Avidor said she was astounded when she realized who the terrorist was. “I started to figure it out when they said he was a father of four from the village.”

“This was a man who we talked with,” she said, “whom my children gave drinks and food.”

She said she felt completely shocked by the incident, and that the first thing she wanted to do when she got home from telling her children was to completely clean her house.
