As Elections Near, Terrorism Escalates

IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi arrived Sunday morning at the scene of Saturday night’s deadly shooting attack in Kiryat Arba. He expressed his appreciation to the military security coordinator for his response to the attack.

Initial investigations show that the shots were fired towards a store in which a father and son had entered. Five people were injured, one of them, Ronen Hanania, died of his wounds. His son Daniel was lightly wounded. Medic Ofer Ohana was seriously injured and as of yesterday afternoon AFSI received reports from his wife that his condition was stabilizing. Ofer, who runs the local Pina Chama ( a “warm corner” fo soldiers on duty), is a friend of many AFSI members.

In the Jordan Valley on Sunday afternoon, four young men were injured, one moderately and three lightly, in a terrorist ramming attack carried out at two different intersections in the Jordan Valley Sunday afternoon. A policeman and a security guard neutralized the terrorist at the Almog Junction.

We pray for the speedy recovery of all the victims. We pray that tomorrow’s elections in Israel bring forward the security, safety and sovereignty so desperately needed in Judea and Samaria.
