The international community condemned the massacre while the attack, which police described as a “terrorist incident”, raised fears of an escalation of violence after months of tension in the West Bank.

Today the Israeli police announced that they arrested 42 people.

“Police have detained 42 suspects for questioning, some belonging to the terrorist’s family,” the police said in a statement.

The Israeli army also announced today that it is strengthening its forces in the occupied West Bank.

“Following an assessment of the situation by the IDF (Israel Defense Forces), it has been decided to reinforce the Judea and Samaria Division (West Bank) with an additional battalion,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah – the Iranian-backed Lebanese Shiite group – today praised the attack carried out by the Palestinian gunman.
