She called for the security barriers and checkpoints to be returned to the highways. The were initially removed by the government as a gesture of peace to the Palestinian Authority. "The murder could have been avoided if there were barriers. No one checked him [the infiltrator] and they have free access. They can go anywhere. It makes no sense." The family has five children all under the age of 8.  "If there is no response from the state, we will have a response on our own," she added.
