A former top defense aide to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Army Radio on Friday that Israel "unfortunately will have to learn to live with a situation" in which its civilians are targeted by Palestinian gunmen on West Bank roadways.

Speaking just hours after a deadly shooting claimed the lives of an Israeli father and son in the southern West Bank, Yaakov Amidror, the former national security adviser to Netanyahu, said that any talk of "a magic solution" - be it the death penalty for terrorists or increased construction in West Bank settlements - is futile.

"There isn't anything that we can do tomorrow morning," Amidror said. "This isn't like what we experienced [during the second intifada] in 2002, when we had many more deaths. In one month, we had over 100 killed, but it was clear what had to be done."
