Rabbi murdered in drive-by shooting attack by Muslim terrorists in Samaria

A 35-year-old Jewish medic was murdered by Muslim terrorists in a drive by shooting attack near the Jewish community of Havat Gilad in Samaria.

The victim, who was later identified as 35-year-old Rabbi Raziel Shevach, was rushed to Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba and was originally said to have sustained extremely serious wounds but was pronounced dead shortly after.

The IDF immediately launched an investigation, scouring the area, closing off roads and setting up roadblocks in the Shechem area in pursuit of the Muslim terrorists.

Itay Zar, who founded Havat Gilad, said: “On my way home I hear about the incident, I am shocked. It is a very serious incident and we are praying for the welfare of the wounded man,” he said.

“We are sick of Arabs drinking a cup of coffee, getting into their cars and shooting at us and then returning to Shechem,” he added.

Yehuda Cohen, who witnessed the shooting recalled the terror attack: “We got to the area and saw a load of bullet casings on the road. The man was conscious but lapsed into unconsciousness while he was being spoken to,” he said.

The victim, Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a father of six, including an 8-month old baby, worked as a shohet (who performs the ritual Jewish slaughter of animals for food) and as a mohel (who performs the circumcision of babies) and also volunteered for Magen David Adom paramedics.

“I knew him for many years. We volunteered together in MDA. Only a short while ago he was given a certificate for distinction for his job in the service. He is effectively the rabbi of Havat Gilad. Raziel was a family man and always wanted to help,” Hass said.
