B’Tselem expresses its shock over Friday (21 July 2017) evening's attack in which Yosef Salomon, 71, his daughter, Chaya Salomon, 46, and his son, Elad Salomon, 35, were stabbed to death in their home in the settlement of Halamish by a Palestinian from the village of Kobar. Tova Salomon, 68, wife of Yosef and mother of Chaya and Elad, sustained moderate to severe injuries and was taken to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem. B’Tselem conveys its condolences to the family and wishes Tova Solomon a speedy recovery. Attacks against civilians undermine every moral, legal and human standard. B'Tselem strongly condemns any and all deliberate attacks on civilians and reiterates its call to politicians and leaders to act responsibly and refrain from stirring up violence.
