Arafat Irfaiya, the Muslim terrorist who slaughtered 19-year-old Ori Ansbacher in a horrific terror attack Thursday evening near the Jerusalem’s Biblical Zoo, was brought to court on Monday for the extension of his arrest on the charges of murder and rape.
The 29-year-old Muslim terrorist from Hevron has confessed to murdering Ori, and staged a reconstruction of the slaughter on Sunday, ahead of his arraignment in court.
The Shin Bet said Irfayia left his home in Hevron carrying a knife, saw the victim in the forest, attacked and killed her.
In a joint operation, the Yamam special anti-terror unit and the IDF, the terrorist was caught alive Friday night near a mosque in Ramallah.
Security camera footage led the Border Police’s counterterrorism Yamam unit to a building adjacent to the mosque, where the terrorist was hiding, and where he was eventually captured by Zilly, a 6-year-old Belgian Malinois canine cop member of the Yamam.
The terrorist is believed to be affiliated with the Hamas terror group and was previously imprisoned. He threatened to carry out a terrorist attack two years ago in order to become a martyr or to go to jail, according to Channel 13.
Transcripts of the terrorist’s interrogation from 2017, after he was arrested at the entrance to the Temple Mount with a large kitchen knife in his pocket, reveal that he said: “I will do it again, I will buy a knife again and I will come back here to go to jail or be a martyr”.
