Last week, Stand for Israel reported that the terrorist who murdered Rabbi Miki Mark was killed in a gunfight with the IDF. Now, The Times of Israel's Stuart Winer reports that ten more terrorists involved in the shooting attack have been arrested, as well as more than two dozen more involved with making illegal weapons:

The Israel Defense Forces arrested 10 people in the West Bank town of Dura overnight Sunday-Monday, in connection with the murder of an Israeli rabbi in a drive-by shooting last month.

The detainees include the relatives of the terrorist who killed Miki Mark, 48, as well as others suspected of helping Muhammad al-Fakih hide after he carried out the deadly attack.

The Israeli security forces also carried out widespread security operations across the West Bank overnight, tracking down weapons workshops and arms dealers. A total of 27 people were arrested in the sweep.
