Israeli Mother Murdered In Front Of Young Daughter

by admin

The IDF opened a manhunt for the terrorists.


A 40-year-old Israeli woman was killed and a 39-year-old man was seriously wounded on Monday in a terrorist shooting near Hebron in Judea.

She was identified as Batsheva Nagari, a mother of three from Beit Hagai, an Israeli community in the South Hebron Hills. She was a kindergarten teacher.

At least one terrorist opened fire on the victims while they were driving on the Route 60 highway, close to the Beit Hagai Junction.

Magen David Adom emergency medical personnel treated two people at the scene with critical gunshot wounds, later declaring Nagari dead. The other victim, a man in his 30s, was evacuated to Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva.

Nagari’s six-year-old daughter, who was in the back seat of the car at the time of the attack, was not injured.

The Israel Defense Forces launched a manhunt for the terrorists and set up roadblocks in the area.

The victims’ vehicle was hit by at least 22 rounds, with another three bullet impacts located nearby, according to a preliminary military probe.

The IDF said the fire came from a passing car without license plates and that the perpetrators fled toward Hebron.

Troops subsequently encircled the city and were questioning civilians.

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant held an operational briefing following the attack. He is being updated by his military secretary, Brig. Gen. Guy Markizano.

Gallant was scheduled to visit the site of the attack for a situation assessment along with senior military officials.

National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir criticized Gallant, telling close associates that “Gallant’s policy is weak against the severe wave of terrorism.”

Ben-Gvir demanded that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu move up the next Security Cabinet meeting when he intends to propose a series of measures, including placing closures on Palestinian Authority cities, denying Israeli work permits to Palestinian Arabs, placing checkpoints and roadblocks in Judea and Samaria and resuming the policy of targeted killings of terrorist leaders.

Foreign Minister Eli Cohen sent his condolences to the victim’s family and prayers for the wounded.

“I call on the international community to condemn terrorism and the Palestinian Authority, which encourages terrorism and pays the murderers of Jews,” Cohen wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “We will continue to fight terrorism with a hard hand, and react strongly against the attempts of our enemies to harm the security of our citizens.”

עוד פיגוע שקורע את הלב.
עוד אמא שנרצחה.
שולח תנחומים למשפחתה של בת שבע נגרי שנרצחה בפיגוע בקרית ארבע, ומתפלל לשלום הפצוע.

אני קורא לקהילה הבינלאומית לגנות את הטרור ואת הרש”פ שמעודדת טרור ומשלמת לרוצחי יהודים.

נמשיך להילחם בטרור ביד קשה, ולהגיב בעוצמה כנגד ניסיונות אויבינו לפגוע… pic.twitter.com/PT7WM6MzNV

Hamas praised the attack, describing it as “part of the religious war over holy places and against Zionist projects” in Judea and Samaria.

The Efrat Local Council issued a statement saying that Nagari grew up in the city and that she was “appreciated and loved by the children and the parents.”

Efrat Mayor Oded Reviv said: “Our hearts go out together with the Ravid family, there are no words that can express how great the pain is and how much the children who were already expecting to see the kindergarten teacher they loved so much will also miss her. Together with all the council’s employees, we are working to support the family and provide pedagogical support for the children.”

“The terrorists act as a result of the hate education and funding from the Palestinian Authority, with the goal of massacring us. The government simply can’t continue down the path of the terrible Oslo agreements,” said Shlomo Ne’eman, head of both the Gush Etzion Regional Council and the Yesha Council.

“We demand that the government of Israel and the IDF change course and act with all means at their disposal to deal a severe blow to the terrorist infrastructure and the terrorist P.A. The supporters, the instigators and sponsors of terrorism can no longer continue with their daily routine. There is a war here, and in a war one must behave accordingly,” he added.

On Saturday, a Palestinian terrorist shot and killed two Israelis in Huwara, located just outside Nablus (Shechem) in Samaria.

The victims, Shay Silas Nigrekar, 60, and his 28-year-old son Aviad Nir, were residents of Ashdod.

The IDF was continuing on Monday to search for the perpetrator.

Earlier this month, a Palestinian terrorist killed an Israeli man in the heart of Tel Aviv.

The incident began when two municipal patrol officers attempted to question a suspicious man at the corner of Montefiore and Allenby streets. He ignored their overtures, drew a handgun and opened fire on them, hitting one, identified as Chen Amir, 42.

The second guard then chased after the terrorist, shooting and killing him.

Amir was evacuated to nearby Ichilov Hospital (Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center) in critical condition, where he was later pronounced dead. He is survived by his wife and three daughters.

So far in 2023, Palestinian terrorists have killed 34 people (33 Israelis and an Italian tourist) in Israel and committed almost 200 shooting attacks in Judea and Samaria.
