Levaya of Itamar Ben-Gal, Stabbed by Palestinian Terrorist

Samaria, Israel - Rabbi Itamar Ben-Gal was laid to rest on Tuesday, one day after he was murdered in a stabbing attack outside the West Bank settlement of Ariel.

Ben-Gal, 29, was standing near a highway outside the settlement on Monday near a bus stop on his way to a brit mila. The terrorist under suspicion was identified as Abed al-Karim Adel Asi, who has yet to be captured.

Ben-Gal, a resident of the Har Bracha settlement, was buried there.

An IDF officer driving by saw the stabbing attack and hit the assailant with his car, but the assailant was still able to flee the scene with the help of a vehicle that had been waiting for him, and is still on the loose.
