The Samaria Regional Council on Wednesday built a new outpost in memory
of terror victim Evyatar Borovsky, 31, who was stabbed to death the day
before by a Palestinian at the Tapuah Junction.
“His blood should
not be spilled in vain,” council head Gershon Mesika said, as he sat
behind a desk under a large white tent that he had set up on a hilltop
overlooking the junction.
From the top of the 100-dunam site, it
is possible to clearly see both of the two major arteries that cut
through the West Bank: Route 60 and a road that leads to the Jordan
Valley. Until recently, an IDF military base sat on the hilltop.
