Israeli Special Forces on Saturday captured two terrorists who murdered IDF soldier Cpl. Dvir Sorek near his yeshiva on Wednesday evening.

The IDF stated that it located and arrested the two terrorists suspected to have committed the attack. The two were found in Beit Kahil, situated a few miles down the road from the site of the attack.

19-year-old Corporal Dvir Sorek was stabbed and killed in a terrorist attack Wednesday night. He was neither armed nor in uniform and was on the way to the yeshiva where he was studying.

Prime Minister and Defense Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday night praised the Shin Bet and the security forces for “apprehending the murderers of Dvir Sorek within 48 hours.”

“In recent years our forces have laid hands on all of the Palestinian murderers who have attacked Israelis and today they have done so again,” he stated, “we will continue to forcefully fight terrorism on all fronts.”
