Two weeks ago, Achikam and David were murdered while hiking with a friend near Nahal Telem. Achikam and David, despite being wounded during the initial attack, were able to return fire and kill two of their attackers, thus saving their friend’s life. This brave act also enabled Israeli security forces to identify who the attackers were – once again members of the Palestinian “Security” Forces, Palestinian policemen that are supposed to be on the side of the Palestinian Authority, which is supposed to be on the side of trying to make peace with Israel.
This week, in memory of that terrible incident, young Israelis, friends and family members of the two young men, gave back a most Israeli response – they hiked to the place where the young men were murdered.
As reported by Israel National News:
