Kiryat Arba's Chief Rabbi Dov Lior on Sunday called for collective punishment for the "rioters" that he said killed Hillel Palmer, 25, and his one-year-old son Yonatan in the West Bank on Friday.

Palmer and his infant son Yonatan died when their car overturned on Route 60 outside Kiryat Arba on Friday, in what police and the army suspect was a terror attack.

"There are murderous rioters around us," he said. "According to the Torah, there is a need for collective punishment, and the IDF must carry this out against the rioters. The are no innocent people in war," he continued.
