PM visits families of Barkan attack victims
Netanyahu, accompanied by wife Sara and son Yair, makes condolence visits to homes of Kim Levengrond Yehezkel and Ziv Hagbi, who were killed in Alon recycling factory shooting, and promises their killer will be brought to justice.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, along with his wife Sara and son Yair, visited on Thursday the bereaved families of Kim Levengrond Yehezkel and Ziv Hagbi, who were killed in the Barkan terror attack on Sunday.



The three made condolence visits to the victims’ family homes in Rosh HaAyin and Rishon LeZion.


"Today we visited the families of Kim Levengrond Yehezkel and Ziv Hagbi. Our hearts, just as the hearts of the entire nation, are torn at the loss of their loved ones,” said the prime minister following the meetings via his Twitter account.

“We will catch the abominable murderer and bring him to justice," he added, referring to the ongoing manhunt for the terrorist responsible for the attack.


On Sunday, Ashraf Walid Suleiman Na'alwa from the village of Shweiki near Tulkarem, embarked on a shooting spree at the offices of the Alon recycling factory, where he worked as an electrician, killing two other factory employees—Levengrond Yehezkel and Hagbi, and moderately wounding another office worker.


The perpetrator reportedly forced a cleaner at gunpoint to handcuff Kim before shooting her. Kim's body was found with her hands bound by cable tie, which the terrorist took several minutes before the attack from the storeroom of the factory.


The terrorist fled the scene prompting the start of a large scale manhunt in the area, with Palestinian security forces reported assisting the IDF search teams.

The terrorist’s house is reported to have already been mapped and several of his alleged accomplices have been arrested.


While addressing the capture of the terrorist who stabbed an IDF reservist on Thursday, Defense Minister Lieberman directly warned the Barkan killer.


“This allows us to redirect all the efforts into capturing the abominable murderer from the Barkan attack, with whom, we will settle the score soon as well,” he wrote on his social media account.
