Rabbi Eitam Henkin and Naama Henkin of Neria, young parents of four, were killed in a drive-by shooting attack on the road between Itamar and Elon Moreh in Samaria at about 9 p.m. on Thursday night. The family was on its way home from a reunion of yeshiva graduates.

The parents suffered multiple gunshot wounds to their upper bodies and were pronounced dead at the scene. The four children – 9-month-old baby, and four-year-old, seven-year-old and nine-year-old boys – were rescued from the vehicle and were taken with light injuries to a nearby medical center.

At least two terrorists targeted the vehicle as the Henkins drove past the Arab village of Beit Furik. A group affiliated with the Fatah Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades claimed responsibility for the attack. A Hamas spokesman praised the attack by the "brave resistance," calling the murderous act "heroic".
