Danny Gonen, a 25-year-old electrical engineering student, was laid to rest on Saturday night in his hometown of Lod. Over 1,000 people attended the funeral.

Gonen was the victim of a terrorist shooting on Friday afternoon near Dolev in the West Bank.

Gonen had arrived with a friend to bathe in a local spring. The pair decided to do a turn around after being told by a friend from nearby Dolev that a group of Palestinians were at the spring.

As they approached Parsa Junction, the IDF source said, a Palestinian standing at the side of the road asked them to pull over.

They complied, and the gunman asked them whether the "spring had water in it," the IDF source added. In the middle of their discussion, the man produced a handgun, and opened fire, striking both Israeli men with 9-milliliter rounds.

Searches are still underway in the West Bank as the shooter remains at large.
