Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara arrived at the Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem on Monday night to visit the family of Rina Shnerb, who was killed in a terror attack last Friday.

Rina’s father, 46-year-old Rabbi Eitan Shnerb, and her 19-year-old brother Dvir were wounded in the terror attack and are hospitalized side by side.

At the end of the Netanyahus' visit, the Prime Minister tweeted that the new neighborhood of three hundred homes to be built in Dolev, near the scene of the attack, would be named after Rina Shnerb, in keeping with the family's request.

"Tonight we visited and strengthened the Shnerb family at the hospital. A wonderful family. In keeping with the parent's request, we decided to name the new neighborhood that we'll build in Dolev 'Mitzpeh Rina', after Rina. The Jewish people will always remember her."
