IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis called the attack 'a serious terror attack'
A teenage girl was killed and her father and brother were seriously injured on Friday in an explosion near a natural spring near the Israeli settlement of Dolev in the West Bank in what the military is calling a serious terror attack.
IDF Spokesperson Brig.-Gen. Ronen Manelis called the attack 'a serious terror attack' and said that the military is still not sure if the explosive device was thrown at the family or if the device had been planted in the stream and remotely set off.
Manelis said the military had still not determined if the terrorists, who fled the scene, acted as part of an established terror group or were working alone.
Rina Shenrav, 17, of Lod, was critically wounded in the attack at Ein Bubin spring and was treated at the scene before succumbing to her wounds. Her funeral was scheduled for 3.30PM in the Lod cemetery.
Her father Eitan Shenrav is said to be conscious and in moderate condition while his 19 year-old son is out of surgery and stable with injuries to his entire body. The two men were evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem for medical treatment by helicopter while the Rina was treated on the spot.
According to reports, Eitan Shenrav received a commendation during his reserve service when he thwarted a terror infiltration by two armed Palestinians in the West Bank.
Editor's comment - This is what Israelis have to live with every day because of the hatred that Muslims are divinely commanded to have for all non-Muslims, not just Jews. This hatred, encapsulated in the doctrine of Al-Walaa-wal-Baraa, is the reason why non-Muslims should never trust Muslims (unless those Muslims have specifically repudiated the doctrine, in which case, of course, they're not Muslims any more.)
