A Palestinian man was arrested on charges of murder after allegedly being involved in the killing of three kidnapped yeshiva students, Israel Police said.
Hosam Topash of Hebron, is suspect of being behind the kidnapping and murder of Gilad Shar, Naftali Frankel and Eyal Yifrah in the West Bank.
The police and the IDF are still searching for the two other suspects identified as Marwan Qawasama and A’amar Abu-Aisha. The neighbors of the suspect reported that the IDF created a parameter around houses and declared the area a closed military zone.
About 125 soldiers raided the home. Topash, a father of two children, previously served time in an Israeli prison for terror activity.
Police believe that the other two suspects are still hiding in Hebron, and they will be captured soon.
