The rocky peaks of the northern Judean Hills have seen their share of sorrow and tragedy this past year. Countless terror attacks have plagued the region, with the entrance to Gush Etzion – the main junction known as Tzomet Hagush – a frequent target of terrorists committing hit-and-run attacks, as well as stabbings of civilians.
