US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman summed up in a brief tweet the reactions of most to the vicious bombing attack on an Israeli family that took the life of 17-year-old Rina Shenrav z’l and seriously wounded her 18-year-old brother and her father, Rabbi Eitan. The family was hiking in the hills of the Samaria region, on their way to swim near the Ein Bubin spring close to the Jewish community of Dolev when a bomb planted by terrorists along the road exploded as the family strolled by.

“Heartbroken and outraged by the brutal terrorist attack in Dolev that left a 17 year old girl dead and her father and brother seriously injured,” Friedman tweeted. “No words to describe the sadness of the moment as we grieve and pray for the injured to recover. May they receive God’s blessings.”


US Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt likewise offered his support: “Another savage attack by Palestinian terrorists kills an Israeli teenager enjoying time with her family. This isn’t the path to peace, just endless suffering.”

“Hamas praised 17yo Rina Shnerb’s murder by Palestinian terrorists. The PA must unequivocally condemn this attack & the recent murder of 18yo Dvir Sorek. If they don’t, donor countries should demand the PA answer for why their donor funds continue to be used to reward attacks.”

US House Majority leader Seny Hoyer also condemned the attack. “I strongly condemn the attack on Rina Schnerav, her father Rabbi Eitan, and her brother Dvir,” Hoyer said in a statement. “I extend my deepest condolences to Rina’s family and friends and I hope those responsible are swiftly brought to justice.”

Dutch Ambassador to Israel Hans Docter likewise expressed his condolences and condemnation of the attack on Twitter, writing “I am shocked to learn of [the] tragedy near Dolev . . . My thoughts are with them and their loved ones. We hope that those responsible will be brought to justice.”

The Embassy of Italy also expressed condolences, saying violence and terror “can never be justified.”

May her memory be for a blessing.
