Beit El regional council head, Shay Alon responded to Thursday's terror attack in Givat Asaf calling on the Israeli government to stop their policy on open roads to Palestinians.

"We cannot endure fatal weekly shootings on our roads. We must close the roads to the Palestinians immediately. We will fight for this with all of our might," Alon said. Alon added in a statement released on Thursday: "I call on our political leaders to do stop everything and rethink the policy on open roads to Palestinian residents."

Adding, "Any terror attack will not cause us to leave the settlements, we will continue to live in Beit El, Metula and on the Gaza border - everywhere. Terror will not move us a millimeter from this land, we will continue to grow our roots here."

In a letter, MK Uri Ariel called on the prime minister to take immediate actions against the Palestinians, to restore the checkpoints throughout Judea and Samaria, to immediately demolish homes and expel terrorists living in the West Bank. He demanded that the security cabinet convene by Sunday and find quick solutions to restore security to residents of Judea and Samaria.
