Late last month, a terrorist killed an American-Israeli citizen, ????, near Jericho. He was also on his way to a wedding.

The alleged gunman, 23-year-old Mutaz Salah al-Khawaja reported to be a member of Hamas, fled the scene and was killed later in a shootout with police.

According to a report in Arutz Sheva, a taxi driver from the city of Ramle was arrested for driving the shooter across the green line so he could get to Tel Aviv. Khawaja's parents were also brought in to determine whether they knew about the planned attack, as the father is also said to be a Hamas member.
