Following the murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach by Palestinian terrorists in a drive-by shooting outside the Samaria settlement of Havat Gilad on January 9, 2018, Deborah Lyons, Canada’s Ambassador to Israel, expressed her shock at the brutal attack.

“Shocked and saddened by the shooting attack last night in West Bank that killed an Israeli father of 5, Rabbi Shevah, z”l. #Canada condemns all such violence and terror”, Lyons tweeted.

US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman also condemned the terrorist attack and tweeted that those wondering why there is no peace [with the Palestinians] should look no further than Tuesday nights murder of Shevach and the Palestinian reaction to it.

“An Israeli father of six was killed last night in cold blood by Palestinian terrorists. Hamas praises the killers and PA laws will provide them financial rewards,” he wrote on his Twitter account. “Look no further to why there is no peace. Praying for the bereaved Shevach family”, Friedman wrote on Twitter.

According to a new report by Israel’s Defense Ministry released on the day of Shevach’s murder, Palestinian Authority paid terrorists and their families over $347 million last year.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the true source of the conflict is the Palestinian Authority’s refusal to recognize the State of Israel “in any boundaries accompanied by the encouragement of the murder of Israelis wherever they are”.

35 year old Shevach who volunteered for Magen David Adom (Israel’s national emergency service), leaves behind a wife and six children, including a 10 month old baby. He was laid to rest on Wednesday morning in Havat Gilad. His funeral was attended by hundreds of mourners, including Education Minister Naftali Bennett, Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel, Chief Rabbi David Lau and Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem Shlomo Amar.
