Arab-Israeli businessman offers $10K reward to find alleged Tel Aviv gunman

“This is someone who acted against Israeli citizens, and I won’t allow someone like him to destroy trust and security, ” said Mazen Qaq,

Nashat Melhem,   who is suspected of carrying out a deadly shooting attack in the center of Tel Aviv

 

 

An Arab-Israeli businessman, Mazen Qaq, is offering a $10, 000 cash reward for information that helps in the capture of Nashat Milhem, the Arab-Israeli fugitive suspected of killing three people in two Tel Aviv shooting attacks.

“This is someone who acted against Israeli citizens, and I won’t allow someone like him to destroy trust and security, ” said Mazen Qaq, head of the merchants’ committee in Jerusalem’s Old City and a resident of eastern Jerusalem, when announced the reward on Tuesday (Dec. 5), Ynet reported.

Qaq also told Ynet that business in the Old City has dropped by 70 percent in the past few months as a result of the surge of stabbings and other attacks by Palestinian assailants against Jews.

“We’re cousins. We need to forget this nonsense about Arabs and Jews, ” he said, according to Ynet. “We are all human beings, no matter what your religion is, we are one people. We give you a hand, you help us and we help you.”

According to the Times of Israel, Melhem is believed to be hiding somewhere in northern Israel. However, Melhem’s father, who was arrested today as a suspected accomplice, has said he believes Melhem is hiding in the West Bank.
