Three Israeli youths in their 20s were shot in a terrorist attack in northern Samaria near the back gate of the settlement of Shavei Shomron. One was shot in the neck and is apparently the one who died. One is in moderate condition and the third is reportedly in mild condition.

A security source told the TPS news agency that preliminary specifications were apparently two terrorists waiting for a vehicle that got off in a pentagonal convoy. And carried out the attack

The head of the Shomron Regional Council, Yossi Dagan, responded to the Terrorist attack with a strong condemnation of Israel’s government.

“The Israeli government is losing its deterrence, a series of repeated steps [by the government] is causing Arab terrorism from the Palestinian Authority again and again to increase its voice,” he said. “We are the residents in Samaria and with us, all the people of Israel will defeat terrorism, we will defeat them.”

Dagan went on to demand that the government of Israel be overturned saying harshly, “this government, whether we elected it or not, it is responsible for the security of every citizen in the State of Israel. It cannot be that time and time again civilians are shot in central places in the State of Israel. We expect the government to turn the diskette immediately, Jewish blood cannot be the no man’s land.”

Israel’s Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said: “Together with all the people of Israel, I send heartfelt condolences to the family of the person killed in the horrific attack that took place tonight in Samaria, and a speedy recovery to the wounded.

The security forces will get their hands on the terrorists very soon and we’ll ensure that justice is served.”

Defence Miniter Benny Gantz expressed his condolences to the family of the terror victim

He added: “I wish a speedy recovery to those who suffered injuries in the attack.

Security forces will catch the perpetrator.

We will increase our vigilance and readiness to thwart terror in Judea and Samaria, and will continue to take any measures necessary in facing terror groups in the area.”
