The security establishment also continues this morning (Friday) to try to get its hands on the terrorist who murdered the Hillel Weigal Yaniv brothers near Hawara on Sunday.
Shortly after the attack, the IDF and the Israel Defense Forces set up roadblocks in Samaria to prevent him from escaping, but the armed terrorist escaped and has not been caught so far.
During the nights that have passed since then, many scans and operational actions were carried out to try and trace the terrorist's escape route and hiding place.
After four days, a situation assessment was held led by Defense Minister Yoav Galant and Chief of Staff Harzi Halevi, during which the hunt was officially transferred to the intelligence level, led by the Shin Bet.

"Whoever carried out the attack knew the area very well. He stood in ambush for a long time, carefully selected the vehicle and opened fire," a military official told Walla this evening.
"According to the speed with which he disappeared from the scene of the attack, he did not flee spontaneously - but also planned the escape route. Our assessment is that he received assistance and is hiding in Nablus."
Teams of special units have been put on high alert in case the "golden clue" arrives that will lead the IDF to his hiding place. In the meantime, the IDF is conducting activity on the highways on the outskirts of the villages and towns in the Nablus sector, and around Jericho to prevent further shooting attacks.
In the attack that took place on Sunday on Route 60 near Kfar Havara, two brothers were murdered, Hillel Menachem Yaniv, Weigal Yaakov Yaniv, 21 and 19 years old.
The MDA team that arrived at the scene gave them medical treatment and evacuated them to the Belinson Hospital, but they were later pronounced dead.
