Jamal killed the three Israelis and critically wounded a fourth outside the West Bank settlement of Har Adar before he was shot dead. He came from the nearby village of Beit Surik and had worked for years in the settlement, where he was known as a conscientious worker who earned the trust of local residents.

In raids early Wednesday in villages Yatta and Abeda as well as A-Ram, security soldiers arrested two Palestinians suspected of intending to conduct terror attacks. Israeli forces confiscated two improvised weapons and two hand guns, as well as thousands of shekels the IDF believed were being used to fund potential attacks.

Israel demolishes the homes of Palestinian attackers as a deterrent measure, but Palestinians consider the policy collective punishment. Israel has also canceled the entry permits of several of Jamal's relatives in response to the attack.
