BBQ Planned for Site of Terror Attack in Gush Etzion


A barbecue is being planned for Thursday at the carpooling stop in Gush Etzion. The site was the scene of a terrorist firebomb attack on Friday, the latest in a series of attacks in the area. Michael Lourie, a resident of the Gush Etzion area told Arutz Sheva news he hopes the "tzomet ha-T" will soon have an official name with a bus stop and security. Locals have been spending time at the side on a daily basis since the attack from 2:00pm - 4:00pm.

Lourie, one of the organizers of the event, added, "not only do we need a stronger army presence in the region but we have to demand that at least three to four rows of olive trees be removed and replanted elsewhere because the terrorists have been using them as hideouts to throw rocks, Molotov cocktails and paint at our cars."

Thursday's visit is planned to be extra special with music, food and a festive atmosphere and take place from 4:00pm - 8:00pm. The public is invited to the potluck gathering. The site is near Efrat and connects Gush Etzion communities such a s Pnei Kedem, Meitzad, Maale Amos, Tekoa, and other townships.
