The security guard killed in a shooting attack near Ariel last night is identified as 23-year-old Vyacheslav Golev.

Golev was a former student at Ariel University. He is survived by his parents and seven siblings who live in Bet Shemesh, and his fiancée who was stationed at the guard post during the attack.

The Bet Shemesh municipality says it is embracing the family.

“The security guard showed supreme heroism and saved the life of the security guard who worked with him,” mayor Aliza Bloch says.

The date and time of Golev’s funeral are not immediately set.
