Israel: Policeman killed in April shot by freed Shalit deal prisoner

June 23, 2014 3:24 P.M. (Updated: June 25, 2014 10:19 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israel's Shin Bet intelligence agency said Monday that it had identified two Palestinians responsible for the April shooting that killed an Israeli policeman and injured two others, Israeli media reported.

Israeli forces arrested Ziad Awad, 42, and his 18-year-old son, on May 7 and they were charged in a military court on Monday, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said early Monday that he ordered Awad's family home demolished, the Israeli news site Ynet reported.

Ziad is a former prisoner who was released in the 2011 Gilad Shalit deal.

Israeli police officer Baruch Mizrahi was shot dead while he was driving near Hebron in the southern West Bank on April 14. His wife and son were also injured in the shooting.
