Settler leaders announce strike in response to shooting attack

Settler leaders announce a municipal strike in response to the deadly shooting attack outside the Givat Assaf outpost.

Samaria Council chairman Yossi Dagan tells reporters at the scene at the Assaf Junction that his municipality in addition to the Binyamin Regional Council and the Beit El Local Council will be ceasing their activities and closing down schools on Sunday in order to protest outside the cabinet meeting in Jerusalem.

Dagan says he will also be leading a demonstration outside the Prime Minister’s Residence this evening at 7 p.m.

“We call on council leaders and all citizens of Israel who care that Jews are being murdered day after day to join us because we are saying ‘enough,’ we will not be silent anymore,” Dagan says, seething.
