Rabbi Eitam and Naama Henkin of Neria were killed in a drive-by shooting attack on the road between Itamar and Elon Moreh in Samaria. Their four young children were in the car at the time of the attack.
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".
