levanon.jpgAs Erez Levanon HY”D, the settler who was R”L murdered on Sunday by Arab terrorists (as reported HERE on YW) was being buried in the Kfar Etzion settlement this afternoon, his murderers were arrested by the Israeli Security Forces.

According to defense establishment estimates, no official Palestinian organization was behind the attack, which was initiated by the two suspects.

On the day of the attack, the two left their village in possession of knives, and after spotting Levanon they ambushed him and stabbed him to death for “nationalistic motives.”

Levanon leaves behind a wife and three children.

  1. One is not meant to look at faces of Reshaim, if they had Chas veshalom not be caught there would be a purpose for it since people might be able to help find them. In a story like this, the face of reshaim shouldn’t be posted.

  2. This was a horrible murder of an innocent Jewish man. When I first found out about it, it reminded me of the brutal murder of 18 year old Eliyahu Asheri in June of 2006. Stop the terror now. Israel must keep building that fence and maintain checkpoints at all costs. And the klal must do their part through reaching out to HaShem more through stepping up mitzvos and saying tehillim daily. HaShem will listen, it is up to us to call upon him.
