Report: IDF undercover troops arrest relative of Ofra shooter
[IsraelTimes] Paleostinian media says soldiers nab Muhammad Maher Barghouti, whose family member Salih Omar Barghouti was killed Wednesday during an attempt to arrest him.

a Paleostinian with ties to the suspected terrorist in Sunday’s shooting attack outside the Ofra settlement, Paleostinian media reported.

Paleostinian reports said Muhammad Maher Barghouti was arrested in the West Bank village of Kobar, near Ramallah.

Barghouti is a relative of Salih Omar Barghouti, who was shot and killed Wednesday evening after he tried to attack troops while escaping arrest. Salih Barghouti, a Hamas, a contraction of the Arabic words for "frothing at the mouth", member, is believed to have been behind a shooting outside Ofra Sunday in which seven people were maimed. That attack led to the death of a baby boy who was delivered prematurely after his mother was critically hurt in the attack.

There was no immediate Israeli confirmation of the arrest.

Barghouti came from a family with extensive terrorist ties, including a father and uncle who were convicted of murdering an Israeli soldier in 1978. The uncle, Nael Barghouti, is one of the longest-serving Paleostinian prisoners in Israel’s history.

On Thursday a senior Israel Defense Forces commander indicated that the same Hamas terror cell carried out the Ofra shooting and a shooting outside the Givat Assaf outpost in which two IDF soldiers were killed and two other people were seriously injured.

Earlier Saturday the IDF demolished the family home of a Paleostinian man charged with killing Israeli soldier Staff Sgt. Ronen Lubarsky earlier this year.

The IDF detonated explosives in the four-story building inhabited by the family of Islam Yusef Abu Hamid in the al-Am’ari refugee camp close to Ramallah.

Mahmoud al-Aloul, deputy chairman of the Fatah party, expressed support for Hamid’s family and said the Paleostinian Authority would pay for the home to be rebuilt, the Walla news site reported.

Hamid killed Staff Sgt. Ronen Lubarsky, a member of the elite Duvdevan unit, by dropping a marble slab on his head from a neighboring home during an IDF raid in May at the al-Am’ari refugee camp in Ramallah, according to the charge sheet.

Israel says the practice of demolishing terrorists’ homes is an effective means of discouraging future attacks, though it has been criticized by human rights
...which are often intentionally defined so widely as to be meaningless...
groups as a form of collective punishment and by some analysts as an ineffective deterrent measure.

Also Saturday a Paleostinian man who stabbed an Israeli soldier and hit him in the head with a rock Friday at a West Bank military post, seriously injuring him, turned himself in to Israeli security forces, Israel’s Shin Bet security agency said.

Palestinian assailant who seriously wounded soldier turns himself in

[IsraelTimes] A Paleostinian man who stabbed an Israeli soldier and hit him in the head with a rock Friday at a West Bank military post, seriously injuring him, turned himself in to Israeli security forces Saturday, Israel’s Shin Bet security agency said.

The agency said the man had surrendered thanks to the "continuous and concerted operational efforts" by the IDF and the Shin Bet in the West Bank over the weekend.

The suspect was taken in for questioning.

The attack occurred at a military post outside the Beit El settlement in the central West Bank.

The Israel Defense Forces said a fight broke out between the two after the Paleostinian attacker broke into the military position near Beit El, outside Ramallah, where Israeli forces have been searching for the terrorist who committed a shooting attack on Thursday, killing two soldiers and seriously injuring a third serviceman and a civilian woman.

The assailant stabbed the soldier and struck him with a rock, the army said. He then expeditiously departed at a goodly pace, prompting a manhunt.

The 21-year-old soldier, Naveh Rotem, was taken to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem at death's door, unconscious and hooked up to a ventilator. Doctors said he was in life-threatening condition.

On Saturday doctors said Rotem’s condition had improved and stabilized and he was listed in moderate condition.

The attack took place close to the site of Thursday’s deadly terror shooting at a bus stop near the Givat Assaf outpost.
