Published

on

On Thursday, Yotam Ovadia, 31, an innocent Israeli father, was brutally stabbed to death in Adam, Israel, a West Bank community, by a Palestinian terrorist.

Authorities say Ovadia had just finished grocery shopping and was en route to his parent’s house when he and two other Israeli Jews were stabbed by a Muslim terrorist, who has been identified as Tarak Da’ar Yousef, 17. According to his family, Ovadia was planning to cook a romantic dinner for his wife before he was killed on Thursday. On Thursday, the people of Israel celebrated Tu B’av, the Israeli version of Valentine’s Day.

After breaking through a security fence, Yousef managed to stab three Jews before he was shot dead.

Ovadia’s death has prompted Israel’s Defense Minister to take an ever more hardline stance against the Palestinians in the West Bank.

“The best answer to terrorism is the expansion of settlements,” Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s Defense Minister said.

On Friday, the Israeli military raided the house of Yousef, and they have vowed to destroy his house, a tactic used by Israel to deter Muslim terrorists in the West Bank from attacking Israelis.

Jason Greenblatt, who serves as President Donald Trump’s advisor on Israel took to Twitter to condemn the attack. “Yet another barbaric attack tonight. When will President Abbas and Palestinian leaders condemn the violence? Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families tonight,” Greenblatt tweeted.

Following the terrorist attack that killed one and injured two others, Hamas praised the terrorist as “heroic”.

While the conflict between Israeli’s and Palestinians is never ending, tensions were escalated this week after the Israeli Knesset passed the “Basic Law”, which declares that Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people and determines specific matters, which demonstrate the Jewish character of the nation.

On Friday, Palestinians fought with Israeli’s outside of the Temple Mount in retaliation for the “Basic Law”.

As protests broke out in Jerusalem, Ovadia was buried in a ceremony attended by  Tourism Minister Yariv Levin (Likud), Deputy Defense Minister Rabbi Eli Ben Dahan (Jewish Home), MK Moti Yogev (Jewish Home), Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat, and GOC Central Commander Nadav Padan .

Ovadia leaves behind a wife and two young daughters.
