Judea and Samaria residents demand: ‘Enough concessions, fight terrorism with heavy hand’

Israel National News reports: “Ariel Elmaliach, chairman of the community of Eli, spoke to Arutz Sheva-Israel National News at the scene of the attack at the gas station near Eli and emphasized that the terrorists identified a weak point and therefore attacked there for the second time.

‘Unfortunately, we are suffering a second attack here in the last six months, despite the IDF’s hard work in the last four months, since the outbreak of the Swords of Iron War. In the last month the level of guarding and security at the station decreased and we very quickly experienced a serious incident with two more Israeli deaths, and this could have ended even worse,’ he said.

‘I appeal to the powers that be – if we want to win, we have to fight them – and continue the pressure that the army has exerted here in recent months. Then we won’t have terrorist attacks, stone throwing or shooting attacks,’ Elmaliach added.

MK Tzvi Sukkot told Arutz Sheva-Israel National News that precisely during the month of Ramadan Israel must act with a heavy hand in Judea and Samaria. ‘Ramadan 2024 must be remembered as the hardest Ramadan of all times for the Arabs here in the region. This must boomerang back on them. It is ridiculous that we are suffering terrorist attacks and Israel is considering how to make concessions for Ramadan. We need to bring back the checkpoints, carry out difficult operations inside the cities, collect the weapons and eliminate terrorism all over Judea and Samaria. This is an all-out war and we must break the misconception in Judea and Samaria as well.’…”
