Neve Tzuf terrorist indicted for murder of Salomon family
Murderer Omar al-Abed, who slaughtered three Jews in Neveh Tzuf, indicted for murder.
The military prosecution filing the indictment sought to extend the murderer’s remand until the end of legal proceedings against him.
On the evening of Friday, July 21st, Omar al-Abed entered the town of Neve Tzuf (Halamish) in Binyamin armed with a knife. He broke into the Salomon family home while the members of the family were organizing a “Shalom Zachar” event on the occasion of the grandson’s birth.
He first stabbed Chaya, 46, the family member who was standing near the door. He then attacked the Chaya’s mother, who managed to escape to the second floor, wounded and bleeding.
Then he stabbed to death Yosef, 70, Chaya’s father, before attacking Yosef’s 35-year-old son, Elad, stabbing him to death.
Michal, Elad’s wife, fled with their five children to the second floor, where they hid. The hasty action of soldier “A” put an end to the butchery, and the soldier was awarded with a medal.
