Two suspects in the attack of Rabbi Gavriel Davidovich, the Chief Rabbi of Argentina, were arrested last night according to Arutz Sheva quoting local media. The brutal attack, which took place in Rabbi Davidovich’s home around 2:00 AM on February 25, 2019, left the rabbi with several broken ribs and a severe lung injury. He was released from the hospital on March 4 after spending a week in the hospital being treated and recovering from his injuries.

The police were reportedly able to identify the assailants through security cameras located in the area, and the local police arrested the suspects in their homes. One of the vehicles used in the attack was found in the raid on the homes of the suspects. In addition, police found clothing that was worn during the attack on the Rabbi’s home. The identity of additional members of the gang are known to the police.

The investigation revealed that the attack was planned in advance, and it appears that the criminals were a gang of burglars who had broken into several other homes in the area. The identity of additional members of the gang are known to the police.
