The brit, for the son of Ben- Gal’s sister-in-law, was held as planned at Yeshivat Har Bracha in the Har Bracha settlement, where Ben-Gal lived with his family and taught at the yeshiva.Ariel Mayor Eli Shaviro called on Netanyahu, government ministers and Knesset parliamentarians to respond to the attack by annexing settlements in Judea and Samaria.“You have the responsibility to prevent the next terror attack,” Shaviro said. “Apply sovereignty.”Ben-Gal’s death marks the second time this month that an Israeli has been killed in a terror attack in the Samaria region.On January 9, Rabbi Raziel Shevach, a father of six, was shot dead by Palestinians as he drove near his home in the Havat Gilad outpost.Two of Shevach’s brothers are graduates of the Har Bracha yeshiva.Shevach and Ben-Gal knew each other. A photograph of the two of them together with three other men was circulated on WhatsApp late Monday afternoon.Ben-Gal will be buried in Har Bracha on Tuesday morning.Samaria Regional Council head Yossi Dagan said that two murders in one month was unacceptable.“I cannot look anymore into the eyes of bereaved families,” Dagan said. “It is not enough to chase terrorists. The terror infrastructure must be dealt with.” He called on the IDF to restore the checkpoints that had been taken down as a humanitarian gesture to the Palestinians in the West Bank.Hamas Politburo member Husam Badran, who is the former head of Hamas in the northern West Bank, said the attack was part of the “new heroism” of the “free people of the West Bank,” who were “targeting settlers who have wreaked havoc in the land.”To the Israelis, he said: “Neither your forces nor your army will protect you, and security cooperation will not be of use to you. Oh you usurping occupiers, you are paying with your blood the price of Netanyahu’s stupidity and Trump’s arrogance,” Badran said.Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon called on the Security Council to demand that the Palestinian Authority stop payments to terrorist and their families rather than asking PA President Mahmoud Abbas to speak at its February 20 meeting.“The Palestinian leadership must be held accountable for today’s horrific murder in Israel,” Danon said. “This terror attack is the direct result of incitement and payments to terrorists by the Palestinian Authority. Instead of inviting Mahmoud Abbas to address the Security Council to disseminate lies and hate, the council should unequivocally condemn this attack and demand that he stop paying stipends to terrorists.”President Reuven Rivlin tweeted that he was “deeply saddened” by the attack.“We all send comfort and strength to his widow, his four young children, his family and his students, who will never forget him,” Rivlin said.Anna Ahronheim and Adam Rasgon contributed to this report.
