Israel Defense Forces troops operating in the town of Aqraba, near Shechem (Nablus), razed the home of Osama Bani Padel, who murdered Shay Nigrekar, 60, and his son Aviad, 28, in Huwara in August.

Padel approached the victims on foot, opened fire at close range with a handgun and fled the scene in a vehicle. 

The Negrikars had spent several hours in Huwara, apparently running errands.

“The security forces are redoubling their efforts to apprehend the murderer and settle accounts with him, just as we have done with all murderers until now,” said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the time.

Meanwhile, Israeli forces arrested 10 Palestinian terror suspects in overnight operations across Judea and Samaria, of whom four were affiliated with Hamas.

In the town of Qarawat Bani Hassan in Samaria, soldiers seized more than 100,000 shekels ($27,000) in terror funds. And in the village of Zurif, near Hebron, troops confiscated more than 40 unlicensed vehicles.

Since Oct. 7, around 2,400 Palestinian terror suspects have been arrested throughout Judea and Samaria, of whom 1,200 are associated with Hamas.

Earlier Monday, an Israeli woman was moderately wounded in a terror shooting in the Binyamin region of Samaria, north of Jerusalem.

At least one Palestinian terrorist opened fire on the 27-year-old woman’s vehicle as she drove along Route 465 near the Ateret Junction, hitting her in the back.

Her husband, who fired back at the assailants, and their six-week-old baby, who were also in the car, were unharmed.

Israeli forces opened a manhunt for the terrorists, who fled the scene.

On Sunday, an Israeli soldier was stabbed and moderately wounded by a Palestinian terrorist at a gas station close to the Rantis Crossing, located west of Ramallah. The terrorist fled to the nearby town of Rantis, where Israeli forces apprehended him.
