Rabbi Hillel Horowitz, a candidate for the Jewish Home Party, praised the quick actions of a female IDF soldier who shot and killed a suspect who attacked IDF soldiers in Hevron.
"I congratulate the Border Police's rapid response and precise elimination of the assailant who threatened officers with a gun."
The incident happened near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron at a location where many terrorist attempts have been made in the past, according to preliminary reports. There are also conflicting reports claiming that the weapon turned out to be a model, or toy gun. The suspect had approached a group soldiers, threatening them and pointing the object at the head of one officer.
