The victim of the shooting attack at the entrance to the settlement of Hermesh earlier today is named as Meir Tamari, 32, a resident of the West Bank community.
Tamari is survived by his wife and two young children, aged one and three.
The Samaria Regional Council says Tamari moved to Hermesh after getting married some four years ago.
Tamari was shot by Palestinian gunmen on a road near the settlement. He continued driving until he reached the entrance of the town, where he was treated by medics and later taken by helicopter to a hospital.
His death was declared a few hours later.
The Israeli military says it has launched a manhunt for the terrorists.
