Thousands of people made a human chain in Gush Etzion Tuesday, joining hands on the road between the town of Kfar Etzion and the Gush Etzion junction in the wake of Tuesday's massacre in Har Nof and in memory of stabbing victim Dalia Lemkos, hy"d. 

Lemkos, 26, was murdered by terrorists last week, just feet from where Israeli teenagers Naftali Frenkel (16), Gilad Sha'ar (16), and Eyal Yifrah (19) were kidnapped before being murdered this summer. 

Students from the "Neve Hanna" girls' high school launched the initiative to form the human chain, and networked through the "Ohr Torah Stone" network of Torah institutions. Lemkos's family also joined.

"Gush Etzion is our home, and you cannot let terror attacks disrupt our daily lives," one of the students who organized the event told Arutz Sheva. "These bus stops are an important transportation hub for us every day."
