Meir Tamari, a resident of northern Samaria, was fatally wounded in a terrorist shooting on Tuesday morning.
The attack occurred near the Israeli town of Hermesh in Samaria, when a terrorist in a passing vehicle opened fire on Tamari and a nearby guard post.
Tamari was airlifted to a nearby hospital, but died of his injuries shortly after.
He leaves behind a wife and two young children.
It was also later revealed that Tamari has a family connection to Esther Horgen, who was brutally murdered by Palestinian terrorists in late 2020 while out for a hike in northern Samaria.
After losing Esther, her husband Benjamin Horgen later remaried. His second wife is the mother of Meir’s now-widowed wife.
Israeli security forces continue to hunt down the perpetrators of Tuesday’s shooting, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to settle accounts with them.
