Hundreds attend the funeral of Meir Tamari, who was killed yesterday in a terror shooting near the northern West Bank settlement of Hermesh.
Tamari, who leaves behind a wife and two kids, is being buried on his 32nd birthday. The funeral is being held in Shaked.
“Today we were supposed to have a fun day with the children to celebrate your birthday,” his widow Tal says. “Instead of congratulating you on your birthday, we are here eulogizing you.”
“You were killed sanctifying God’s name, only because you were a Jew,” Tamari’s brother-in-law says in eulogy, according to Army Radio.
Settler leader Yossi Dogan also speaks at the funeral, demanding Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant provide “answers.”
“Jewish blood will not be forfeit,” Dagan says.
