The Shin Bet security agency, police, and IDF say in a joint statement that the terrorist who murdered 14-year-old Benjamin Achimeir in the West Bank earlier this month has been arrested.

His name is Ahmed Dawabsha. He's a 21-year-old resident of the West Bank town of Duma.

Shin Bet investigators will question the suspect.

14-year-old Benjamin Achimeir went missing while shepherding in the West Bank on April 12. His body was found a day later. According to the police, he was killed shortly after leaving the farm.

Achimeir's body was discovered by Eliyahu Libman, the father of Elyakim Libman, one of the hostages held by terrorists in the Gaza Strip.
