Pua Palmer: The Army Let Us Down


Pua Palmer, widow of Asher Palmer who was murdered four months ago with his son Yonatan, in an attack near Kiryat Arba, expressed her displeasure on Sunday at the conduct of the army after the murder.

Immediately after the murder the IDF announced that the incident was a car accident and only later did it reveal that it was a terror attack. “The army, and especially Nitzan Alon, let us down,” Palmer said in an interview with Channel 1. “When they came to talk to us, I felt the commander was speaking as if he was a briefing his soldiers.”
