Minister of Culture and Sports Limor Livnat (Likud) was "shocked at the murderous attack of her nephew Ben Yosef Livnat" on Sunday morning, after a group of Breslev hassidim was shot at by Palestinian Authority police after they visited Joseph's Tomb in Nablus without prior coordination.
"A man whose only goal on the second eve of Pessah was to pray, was murdered in cold blood in a hateful manner," Livnat said in a statement, "and has now left a woman and three orphans behind."
In addition to Livnat who was killed, another four people were injured in the incident.
