Israel Policy Forum unequivocally condemns the murder of Rina Shnerb z”l, 17, in a bombing near Dolev in the West Bank. An attack against any civilian is an outrage, but the killing of a minor is particularly heinous. Moreover, we are deeply concerned by the fact that this is the third major terrorist incident in the West Bank in August alone.

We hope that those responsible for this terrorist attack are quickly apprehended and brought to justice, and we wish a speedy recovery to Rina’s father, Rabbi Eitan Shnerb, and brother, Dvir Shnerb, who were also injured. Our thoughts remain with the Shnerb family during this difficult time.
