Hundreds of women demonstrated today at the Gush Etzion junction where two attacks took place over the past week resulting in the murder of four Jews - three in a shooting attack last week including an 18-year-old American student Ezra Schwartz, and one, Hadar Buchris, 21, in a stabbing attack there yesterday.

The protesters, mothers and and students living in the area, came to the junction by bus and private car from Efrat, Migdal Oz, Kfar Etzion and other local Jewish communities. 
Jewish women not giving in to terror

Gush Etzion Regional Council director Davidi Perl addressed the crowd and called for security, but stressed that police and military measures are only bandaids if the underlying root measures are not taken. “We must roll back the Two-State Solution and assert Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria [the West Bank]", he stated.

Though not in time for them to defend the recent victims, stricter security measures are being implemented at the junction including the construction of new fences, a rerouting of Arab traffic to bypass the junction, new concrete blocks to counter car-ramming attacks at the bus stops, and the deployment of more soldiers.

Israel felt the brunt of the renewed Jihad attack-wave today as terrorist stabbed to death a 20-year-old IDF soldier and injured a young women at a gas station on highway 443, while in another incident an elderly Arab was stabbed by two female teen terrorists near Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda open air market.

The Gush Etzion junction has been the scene of 9 murders since this current wave of terror began. PM Netanyahu came to the junction and spoke at the scene saying that among other security measures, he is considering taking away work permits from the families of terrorists.
