Hevron Mourns Officer, Looks Forward to Festival


Thousands are expected at the annual Passover music festival in Hevron on Thursday despite the murder of a police officer this week by Arab terrorists. Yochai Damari, the head of the Har Hevron Regional Council spoke to Arutz Sheva news on Wednesday about the mixed feelings of the residents. He said that the community is mourning but also not giving in to terror by continuing plans for the huge amounts of tourists expected to visit the historic sites in the region. He added that the shooting attack, because of it's close proximity, could have been much worse.
