Tapuach terror victim's widow lashes at IDF general

Tzofia Borovsky calls Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon 'heartless, talented hater' after razing of outpost commemorating husband murdered this week

Tzofia Borovsky, widow of Eviatar who was murdered this week in a terror attack in Tapuach Junction, slammed Central District Commander Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon following security forces razing of an outpost set up in memory of the victim.


"Heartless, and a talented hater," Borovsky called Alon.

The outpost included a building and a tent set up near the attack's site in order to raise a settlement named after the victim.


The razed building was used by the Shomron Council Chairman Gershon Mesika, who moved his office to the outpost following the attack.


In the letter read by settlers in a rally at the site on Friday Borovsky wrote: "Only yesterday Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon set with me, at Eviatar's parents' house in Kfar Hasidim.


"The man who according to the press showed understanding for the Fogel family murder and called it an 'Arab price tag,' found it difficult to show understanding, let alone empathy, for my five children and my own sorrow."


The widow continued to attack Alon: "The man who is supposed to be directly responsible for the safety of Jews in Judea and Samaria and who failed in his role to prevent the murder, showed cruel efficiency in razing the outpost set up close to the site.


"I would like to believe that this despicable and ugly act, made even before Eviatar's blood dried, stems from stupidity or misunderstanding. But I know, everyone knows, that the brigadier general is a smart man, thus, I've no choice but to conclude that Nitzan Alon simply has no heart."


Borovosky ended the letter by demanding the defense minister to oust Alon from his command.


Borovosky was not alone in the settler sector to criticize Alon. Tensions between the IDF and settlers rose following rioting and price tag activities after Eviatar Borovosky's murder.


Samaria Council Chairman Gerson Mesika said that "razing the outpost was a cowardly operation in the middle of the night by Brig. Gen. Nitzan Alon, the father of the opening of the road-blocks, relying on Palestinian police 'terrorists' and orders tying the hands of soldiers, causing an increase of terror."


The IDF did not state a response. In light of the rising tensions the IDF and police allotted large forces to areas of friction, especially near Itzhar.
