The family of Kim Levengrond Yehezkel, who has been killed in the terror attack in the Barkan industrial area, blames Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman for failing to catch the assailant and refraining from demolishing his house.
“It’s a difficult feeling. We are not getting any updates. Several security officials attended the shiva, and said they will be in touch, but not only are they not in touch—nothing is being done," Kim’s father, Rafi Levengrond, said in an interview with Ynet.
"The terrorist’s home is still standing, and that is Mr. Lieberman’s greatest failure. He failed and he has to immediately resign, he can’t manage anything and he’s not showing any authority," he criticized Lieberman.
“The defense minister has the authority to demolish terrorists' homes. If they aren’t doing it—Lieberman probably forbids it. If he is not using his authority perhaps he should get out of the driver seat,” continued Levengrond.
Levengrond explained that the family is bothered by the fact that numerous terrorists' houses are yet to be demolished.
“There are 102 other homes of terrorists that committed crimes as worse as the Barkan shooting, and they stand intact, the families live there, even though the terrorists have been caught. Nothing is being done.
“They said this terrorist worked alone. How could he have he done this alone if he’s been in hiding for so long? How does he get food and drink? He receives help,” the father went on to say.
“They caught someone that helped him. That person even had intelligence on him, but what are they going to do with him? What are they not interrogating him? He executed my daughter. He tied her up and executed her!" he exclaimed.
The family is planning a march in Barkan on the one month anniversary of Kim's murder, and is expecting a crowd “so that people know things are not right,” Levengrond concluded.
