Omar Abu Laila – Palestinian terrorist who stabbed Israeli soldier Gal Keidan, stole his weapon, and shot and murdered him at Ariel Junction on March 17, 2019. Abu Laila then shot at passersby, murdering Rabbi Achiad Ettinger, and stole the car of a civilian who had fled the scene, which he drove to Gitai Avishar Junction, west of Ariel, where he shot and seriously wounded another Israeli. Abu Laila was shot and killed on March 19, 2019, during an exchange of gunfire with Israeli soldiers when they attempted to apprehend him.

Muhannad Halabi - 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist who murdered 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett’s wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, the terrorist wrote on Facebook that a "third Intifada” had begun - referring to recent terror attacks and Palestinian violence in response to Jews visiting the Temple Mount - saying that it was a response to Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not “succumb to humiliation.” This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."

Basel Al-A’araj – head of a Palestinian terror cell that planned to attack Israeli targets. Al-A'araj and his cell were arrested by the PA Security Forces in spring 2016 and held in prison until they were released on Sept. 9, 2016, largely due to a public Palestinian campaign. Israeli soldiers tried to arrest Al-A'araj in El-Bireh on March 6, 2017, but he resisted and opened fire on them at which point they shot and killed him.

Abd Al-Rahman Raddad – 17-year-old Palestinian terrorist who carried out a stabbing attack, injuring 1, in Petach Tikva on March 8, 2016. The victim pulled the knife out of his neck and killed Raddad with it.

Abd Al-Hamid Abu Sorour – 19-year-old Palestinian terrorist and Hamas member who carried out a suicide bombing attack on bus no. 12 in the Talpiot neighborhood in southeast Jerusalem on April 18, 2016. 21 people were injured in the attack. Abu Sorour died of his injuries a few days later in an Israeli hospital.

Ahmed Ismail Jarrar – Palestinian terrorist who was a member of the terror cell led by Ahmed Nasr Jarrar that murdered Rabbi Raziel Shevach in a drive-by shooting on Jan. 9, 2018, near Havat Gilad, in the Nablus area.

Ahmed Nasr Jarrar – Palestinian terrorist who led the terror cell that murdered Rabbi Raziel Shevach in a drive-by shooting on Jan. 9, 2018, near Havat Gilad, in the Nablus area.
