Updated: Jordan Valley Terror Victim Identified

The man who was bludgeoned to death, apparently by two Palestinian Authority terrorists, has been identified as a retired IDF colonel Sariya (שריה) Ofer.

Ofer was the founder of the IAF special forces unit “Shaldag”.

He is also the nephew of Sammy Ofer, the business magnate and philanthropist, who owned, among other things, the ZIM shipping company and the Israel Corporation.

According to Sariya’s wife, Monique, at around 1 AM, the couple heard noises outside their house. When her husband out to check, he was attacked by two terrorists.

His wife managed to flee the house, crawling through bushes and barbed wire fence until she reached the road, suffering cuts.

While in the house, she managed to call a friend who alerted the police.

According to the wife’s daughter, the terrorists were searching with flashlights for the wife, as she was escaping.

Should do what they do down South in the USofA – shoot first, and then ask questions later – husband should never have gone out of the house without a weapon, and the wife should have had one too – it’s kill them or be killed – show no mercy when your lives are at stake, as is the State of Israel’s existence.

    RealJStreets Certainly is a sign of peace talks. Traditionally #Palestine terror and rockets always rise during #Israel peace talks

  6. RealJStreets says:

    IsraelSpeaker No coincidence, has happened every time, with another terrorist prisoner release due soon, more fun times ahead. #terror

    Good idea to install burglar alarms in every home.

  8. KONTROVERSI4 says:

    JewishPress Jewish Vs Christian, Christian vs Islam, Islam Vs Jewish woo… No peace because religion

  9. burglar alarms, a wonderful idea; in fact, nowadays with terrorists out to kill at every opportunity, it is indispensable. A gun and a dog might help too. As a former military officer, it is surprising that he went out to investigate without being armed. Very sad and disturbing!
