Jerusalem Man Kidnapped and Murdered by Hamas

By Ezra HaLevi Arutz Sheva September 26, 2005

It was released for publication Monday evening that an Israeli Jew from
the Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev was kidnapped Wednesday and
murdered by Arab terrorists.

The body of Sasson Nuriel was discovered Monday morning in the Arab village
of Bituniya, west of Ramallah.

A gag order on the case was partially lifted Monday evening.

Nuriel, 55, owned a candy factory in the Mishor Adumim industrial zone, near
Jerusalem. His murderers, it appears, were members of the Hamas terrorist

Nuriel disappeared last Wednesday and his wife reported him missing to the
police late that night. Police and Shabak (General Security Services) agents
then carried out a search and investigation that led to the discovery of
Nuriel’s body Monday morning and the arrest of at least one Hamas terrorist in
connection with the murder. His body showed signs of extreme violence.

The Palestinian Authority did nothing to assist Israel in its search for
the kidnap-murder victim.

Nuriel’s funeral is set to take place at 8 PM at the Givat Sha’ul cemetery
in Jerusalem.
