The Shin Bet, IDF and Judea and Samaria district police uncovered an extensive Hamas terror structure in Ramallah and the Binyamin region, and arrested suspects including two men who confessed to taking part in the brutal October 2000 lynching of two IDF soldiers, security forces announced Thursday.Not only that, the Muslim named Wisam Radi, who was seen with bloody hands in a horrific picture at the time, has been captured and convicted for his own role:
Arrests were made in June of Palestinian security suspects, some of whom formed a Hamas field command in that region of the West Bank, police said.
Two of those questioned confessed to being involved in the beating to death of IDF reservists Yossi Avrahami and Vadim Nurzhitz at the PA Ramallah police station, where the two were taken after getting lost.
The two suspects were charged at the Judea Military Court on August 5, police added.
“We notified the families of the victims about the arrests after the investigation, and before publication of it. We acted with sensitivity,” police spokesman Dudi Asraf added.
“We told the families that the Israel Police and the security forces have not forgotten their sons, and that those involved in the crime will be tried irrespective of the 12 years that passed since the crime was committed,” Asraf said.
The military appeals court last week convicted Wisam Radi of murdering a soldier during the 2000 Ramallah lynching, overturning a lower court's decision to acquit him.The court did the right thing to convict him and overturn the lower court's decision. He should also receive the death sentence, just like the other 2 monsters.
The lynching occurred shortly after the intifada broke out, when two army reservists took a wrong turn and wound up in Ramallah. There, they were beaten to death by an angry mob. Afterward, pictures of one of the lynchers triumphantly brandishing his bloody hands were broadcast worldwide.
Radi, who was 25 at the time, was a Palestinian policeman serving in Ramallah. The appeals court found that after hearing two soldiers had been taken to the Ramallah police station, he rushed over and joined in abusing the body of Vadim Norzhich, who was already dead. He then went to where Yosef Avrahami was being held and hit him in the head with a lug wrench.
