Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman praises IDF Col. Roy Zweig who was injured after Palestinian gunmen opened fire during clashes with IDF troops guarding worshipers at Joseph’s Tomb on the outskirts of Nablus.
Zweig, who heads the Samaria Regional Brigade in the northern West Bank, reportedly refused to be taken to hospital for his shrapnel wounds until the safety of all the worshipers was guaranteed.
“I send my best wishes for a speedy recovery to the wounded from last night’s shooting attack at the Joseph’s Tomb compound in Nablus. The fighters who operated in the area showed determination and acted as expected of them – quickly and sharply,” tweets Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman.
“I look forward to the speedy return of Roi Zweig to operational activity — the IDF needs people like you, with courage and personal example,” Liberman says.
