Esther Horgan HY’D, mother of 6 brutally murdered by Muslim terrorists in Samaria

Esther Horgan HY’D, a 52-year-old mother of six, resident of the Jewish community of Tal Menashe was found murdered in the Reihan forest in northern Samaria early Monday.

According to the defense establishment, the terrorist who murdered Esther is an Arab-Israeli.

“I share the deep grief of the Horgan family following the heinous murder of Esther, of blessed memory,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said.

“Security forces are already working to get their hands on the heinous murderer. We will never accept a reality in which human life becomes cheap,” Gantz added.

Esther left her home in Tal Menashe on Sunday afternoon for a jog in the nearby Shaked Forest.

Her body was found early Monday with clear signs of a violent attack.

Security forces launched a manhunt in an effort to find the Muslim terrorist who murdered Esther.
The Samaria Regional Council said in a statement that Horgan’s murder was an act of terror.
“Her husband alerted security forces after she failed to return home. She was found with her skull bashed in,” the statement said.
“A dear woman so full of kindness goes out in the afternoon in the center of the State of Israel to exercise a minute away from her home, and is murdered by vile people in such a cruel way,” said the head of the Samaria Regional Council, Yossi Dagan.
