TEL AVIV – The Palestinian man who confessed to the brutal murder of an Israeli teen told interrogators that he had purposely entered Israel to find a Jewish victim to kill because he wanted to be a martyr, Channel 13 news reported Monday.
The Shin Bet security agency on Monday deemed the rape and murder to be a nationalistically motivated terror attack.
The Shin Bet security agency said Irfayia had confessed and reenacted the murder of Ansbacher.
“We should not hide the truth,” Shaked told Channel 13 news.
“He killed Ori because she was a Jewish girl.” Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan echoed Shaked’s call for the death penalty.
