The hiding place of the Muslim terrorist who murdered Kim Levengrond Yehezkel and Ziv Hagbi in a terror attack in the Barkan industrial zone last October, was located a month ago.
The Yamam special anti-terror unit was dispatched to the building in Shechem where he was hiding, in order to arrest him.
This is what the operation looked like from a vantage point next to the building and one of the team’s helmet cameras.
On October 7th shortly before 8 a.m., a Muslim terrorist entered a factory where he worked in the Barkan Industrial Zone, near Ariel, armed with a locally-made Carlo submachine gun.
The terrorist went upstairs to fix an electrical malfunction on the second floor, noticed several employees, and decided to go back downstairs. The terrorist took zip ties from the factory’s warehouse and then returned to the second floor to carry out the terror attack.
Upon reaching the second floor, where the factory’s offices are located, the Muslim terrorist forced a janitor at gunpoint to handcuff the victim, released him unharmed and executed Kim Levengrond-Yehezkel.
The terrorist then advanced towards the office of Ziv Hajabi and shot him to death as well.
After the terror attack, the terrorist waited for about five minutes while the factory workers treated the victims and then fled the factory, still armed with the submachine gun, boarded a car and headed in the direction of Shechem.
After a two-month manhunt by the Border Police’s counter-terrorism Yamam unit; troops from the IDF’s elite Duvdevan, Lotar and Oketz units; and Shin Bet forces, the Muslim terrorist behind the Barkan massacre was finally caught and eliminated.
