At the funeral for Ori Ansbacher on Friday, hundreds of tearful mourners sang a song of Redemption ahead of the heartbreaking eulogies and burial.
The body of Ori Ansbacher, 19, victim of a grisly Palestinian terror attack, was found in the Jerusalem Forest on Thursday night.
Following an intense search for the assailant, Israeli forces arrested 29-year-old Hebron resident Arafat Arfiah on Saturday.
“I commend the ISA [Shin Bet/Israel Security Agency] and Israel Police special anti-terror unit for apprehending – within a few hours – the abhorrent murderer of the late Ori Ansbacher. The long arm of Israel will reach whoever hurts us and we will settle accounts with them,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared.
“We will not be deterred and we will not cease our uncompromising fight against terrorism,” President Reuven Rivlin stated. “We will seek out the perpetrators and their associates until we find them and punish them to the fullest extent of the law, in every place and wherever they hide from us.”
Ansbacher was volunteering for national service at a youth center in Jerusalem. She was buried Friday in her hometown of Tekoa in Judea.
