Defense Minister Yoav Gallant vows the military will capture the terrorists who killed British-Israeli sisters Maia and Rina Dee in the Jordan Valley on Friday.

“Any terrorist who thinks they may elude the IDF during the holy days is gravely mistaken,” says Gallant, in remarks provided by his office, following a tour of the northern West Bank with military officials.

“Anyone who attempts even the slightest harm, will be brought to justice,” he adds.

The briefing in the area focused on “counterterrorism activities, the search for the terrorists who conducted attacks in the region, and the need to contend with infiltration attempts,” according to his office.
