Israel security forces were searching for the Palestinian terrorist who opened fire at a West Bank junction near Ariel after seizing a weapon from a soldier in an earlier attack. Staff Sergeant Gal Keidan , aged 19, from Beersheba was killed  and 2 other Israelis seriously wounded, an IDF soldier and father-of-twelve Rabbi Achiad Ettinger. Ettinger later succumbed to his injuries.

KAN reporter Mark Weiss spoke earlier with Eliana Passentin, the director of the International Desk at the Binyamin Regional Council, a friend and neighbor of Rabbi Ettinger.
