He is Arafat Arfaiah, 29, from Hebron who has already served time for terrorist offensives. He was arrested near Ramallah on Friday night against resistance from a violent crowd. The suspect told interrogators that he left home on Thursday morning, Feb. 7, carrying a knife and made his way to Beit Jala south of Jerusalem. He said he then walked towards the Ein Yael Forest near the Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem and, on his way, spotted Ori Ansbacher.. He admitted to assaulting and murdering her.  DEBKAfile: The suspect and his family. who live in the Abu Sneina district of Hebron, are notorious for being Hamas adherents. The DNA evidence collected at the scene of the crime corresponded with the sample in the suspect’s dossier.
