WATCH: Hamas Terrorist Who Killed Rabbi Dies In West Bank Firefight With IDF

The Times of Israel reports: Israel’s security forces overnight killed the Hamas terrorist who murdered Rabbi Miki Mark in a July 1 shooting attack in the West Bank. Three other members of the terror cell that planned and executed the attack were arrested, the army said early Wednesday morning.

The terrorist identified as 29-year-old Muhammad al-Fakih was killed when clashes broke out between the Israeli troops and the armed cell in the West Bank village of Surif, north of Hebron.

The soldiers were conducting a joint IDF, Shin Bet and Israel Police operation to arrest the four-member cell.

Fakih opened fire at the Israeli troops from inside the house in which he was hiding, and the IDF responded by firing several anti-tank missiles, the IDF said. The IDF then used a bulldozer to knock down most of the building, and when the troops finally entered the destroyed home they found Fakih dead inside.

No Israeli troops were hurt in the operation.
