Israel’s Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman visited Rambam Medical Center in Haifa, where the Israeli combat soldier who was injured in last night’s raid is still hospitalized. Lieberman praised the security forces for killing one of the terrorists who carried out last week’s deadly drive-by shooting in Havat Gilad and said the other terrorist, who fled the scene, will soon be caught.

A day after the IDF killed one of the terrorists who carried out last week’s deadly drive-by shooting attack in Havat Gilad, Israel’s Defense Minister Avidgor Lieberman said Friday the second terrorist, who managed to flee the scene, is “living on borrowed time.”

“The war on terror is not a one-time thing but an ongoing effort,” Lieberman said. “I’m certain we will soon be able to track down the terrorist who fled and settle the score with him.”

Lieberman made these statements at Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center, where he was paying a visit to the Israeli combat soldier who was injured during last night’s raid in Jenin. Lieberman thanked him and said he hopes to see him return to his service quickly.

The Israeli authorities “know who the terrorists are and who the accessories are,” Lieberman added. “We will get to all of them. No one will remain free for much longer.”

On Thursday evening, the injured soldier was visited by the parents of 35-year-old Rabbi Raziel Shevach, who was murdered in the Havat Gilad drive-by shooting attack. They extended their gratitude to him and wished him a speedy recovery.
