Gallant urges public ‘not take law into own hands’ as settlers attack Palestinian towns

Defense Minister Yoav Gallant tells the public not to “take the law into [their] own hands” as settlers rampage through several villages across the West Bank after the body of missing Israeli teen Benjamin Achimeir was found. The teen was murdered in a terror attack, the IDF and Shin Bet security agency said in a joint statement.

“I appeal to the public, let the security forces act quickly in the hunt for the terrorists,” he tweets.

“Acts of revenge will make it difficult for our soldiers in their mission. The law must not be taken into one’s own hands,” he adds. Gallant also expresses his condolences.
