Meretz chair Zehava Gal-On released a statement on Sunday expressing "shock over the horrific terrorist attack in Otniel this evening."

Dafna Meir, a 39-year-old mother of six, was stabbed to death in her home in the southern West Bank settlement on Sunday afternoon. The assailant, believed to be a Palestinian who worked nearby, fled the scene immediately afterwards.

"My heart goes out to the family of the victim, Dafna Meir, who was attacked in her home by a cruel, heartless terrorist while her children were nearby," Gal-On said. "Every effort must be made to locate the perpetrator and to prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law."
