Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expressed his condolences to the family of Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal of Har Bracha on Monday night following the terrorist attack outside the city of Ariel which took the life of the 29-year-old yeshiva teacher, husband and father of four.
“We send our condolences to his family,” the prime minister said.
“IDF forces are in pursuit of the murderers. We will exact our judgement,” he continued.
“These are very difficult moments. The people come together at times like these. I put our faith in the security forces, who are doing an excellent job.”
Rabbi Ben-Gal will be laid to rest at 10 am Tuesday in his home community of Har Bracha in Samaria.
Baruch Dayan HaEmet, and may his blood be avenged.
