IDF Staff Sergeant Gabriel Kobi (20), from Tirat Carmel, was killed on Sunday after being shot by an Arab sniper in Hebron.
Kobi was standing in the same general area where a few years ago another Arab sniper shot and killed a Jewish baby, Shalhevet Pass.
The city of Hebron is currently under lockdown as the IDF searches for his killer.
Kobi is the second IDf soldier killed in 3 days by Palestinian Authority Arabs.
On Friday, another Arab lured an off-duty Air Force soldier to an area near his village, where he then killed the him, and dumped the soldier’s body into a well.
