Hamas cell apprehended in murder of Na’ama and Eitam Henkin

Four days after the couple Na’ama and Eitam Henkin were murdered in a drive-by shooting ambush in front of their four children, Israel security forces Monday announced they had laid hands of the Hamas cell responsible for the attack following an intense intelligence effort. The Hamas cell based in Nablus had five members, all of whom have confessed.  Each was allotted a task: One kept an eye on the road, three traveled in the attack vehicle – a driver and two shooters – and a commander who stayed back in Nablus. They were identified as Ghaeb Ahmad Muhamed Aliwi, 37, Yahya Muhammed Naif Abdallah Hajj Hamad, 24, and Karim Lutfi Fathi Rezaq, 23 – the two gunmen who fired the fatal shots; Samir Zahir Ibrahim Kusa, 33, the driver; and Zeid Ziyad Jamil Omar, 26 who kept observation.  Rezak was accidentally shot by cell members during the attack. Israeli troops arrested him and took him in from his hospital bed. A number of accessories were also arrested.
