"Residents of the Binyamin region will not be sitting ducks in a Palestinian shooting range," said Israel Gantz, head of the Binyamin Regional Council, en route to the site of the latest terror attack on Thursday.

"Terrorism has lifted its head," he continued, noting that Israel needs to break out of its mindset, which he called "stuck." 

"We will not sit quietly. I demand that the government confront the terror immediately. The first step would be to ban the Arab population from driving on Route 60," he said.

In 2018, there have been 11 people killed in West Bank terror attacks so far.
