After deadly shooting attack, security beefed up at Ariel entrance

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

Authorities are laying down concrete barriers next to a guard post at the entrance of the West Bank settlement of Ariel, after a security guard was killed in a terror attack there last night.

The barriers are to protect the security guards while they operate outside of the guard post itself.

In the terror shooting last night, two gunmen drove up to the entrance of the community and opened fire into the post, killing a 23-year-old security guard, before driving off.
