Palestinian kills Israeli civilian and soldier near settlement of Ariel

B’Tselem expresses its sorrow over the killing of Rabbi Ahiad Ettinger, a 47-year-old husband and father of twelve from the settlement of Eli in Nablus District who was shot by a Palestinianand on 17 March 2019 and died of his wounds yesterday, and conveys its sincerest condolences to his family. The deliberate targeting of civilians undermines every moral, legal and human standard. B’Tselem strongly condemns any and all deliberate attacks against civilians and calls once again on politicians and leaders to act responsibly and avoid fanning the flames of violence.
