Two Palestinians held for murdering elderly Israeli farmer

Two Palestinians who beat the farmer David Bar-Capra (70) to death outside his home in Moshav Pedaya last month were apprehended in a joint police-Shin Bet operation. This was disclosed Thursday. The suspects are Palestinian cousins, Majd Ali Aatzi and Alaa Harbi Aatzi aged 21 from Beit Laqiya. Both have a long record as terrorists. They entered Israel illegally from the West Bank and worked for the late Bar-Capra. The pair beat him after a failed robbery. The farmer later died of his wounds.
