The Israeli settler who was murdered in a drive-by shooting attack on Tuesday has been identified as 35-year-old Raziel Shevach from the outpost of Havat Gilad.

Shevach, a well-known figure in his community, was a rabbi, a mohel and a Magen David Adom volunteer. His friends and colleagues reacted with utter shock to the news of his murder. “This loss is very hard to grasp,” one of them said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered his condolences to his family and vowed to bring the terrorists to justice.
