We remember the Itamar massacre: Fogel family butchered while sleeping
💔 WE REMEMBER: On this day 9 years ago, on 11 March 2011, two Muslim terrorists broke into the Fogel’s home in the Jewish community of Itamar and massacred almost the entire family while they were sleeping: Ruthie (35), Ehud (36) and 3 of their children, Yoav (11), Elad (4) and Hadas, a 3-month-old baby who was decapitated.
A month-and-a-half later, Muslim terrorists Amjad and Hakim Awad, two cousins from the Arab village of Awarta, 18 and 19-year-old respectively, were arrested for the terror attack. A military court handed each terrorist a sentence of 130 years in prison.
They confessed the murders, expressing no remorse and reenacting the terror attack before security officials.
After breaking into an empty home, they stole a weapon before breaking into the Fogel family home, where they stabbed and shot to death the parents, Udi, 36 and Ruth, 35, along with three of their six children—Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and three-month-old Hadas, who was decapitated—as they slept in their beds.
