One Israeli policeman was killed and three others were injured Monday morning as Palestinians opened fire at a police car near the West Bank settlement of Beit Hagai. The officers were making their way to Hebron from the southern city of Beersheba.
The police have cleared for publication the name of the policeman killed in a shooting attack south of Hebron: The killed officer was identified as Command Sergeant Major Yehoshua (Shuki) Sofer, 39, who had served in the Hebron region for 14 years. [YNET]
One of the cell's heads said in his interrogation that just two weeks before he embarked on the attack, his six-year-old daughter was hospitalized in Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, where she had a tumor removed from her eye. The operation was funded by an Israeli organization. [YNET]
