22 Aug 2023, Hebron:
“Preschool teacher Batsheva Nigri was ‘a fun, happy woman,’ her Beit Hagai neighbor Hannah Zarichon said Monday on N12, after she was gunned down by terrorists in the presence of her 12-year-old daughter on Route 60 near Hebron… Nigri, mother of three, … was buried Monday night in Kfar Etzion.” (“Batsheva Nigri – ‘an infectionus laugh and a huge smile’;” Jerusalem Post, 22 Aug 2023 pg 1.)
“Batsheva had hitched a ride from Beit Hagai to Kiryat Arba. The driver, Aryeh Gottlieb, 39… was in serious but stable condition from gunshot wounds…”
(“Terrorists gun down mother in front of daughter; ‘We’re in wave of terror we haven’t known in a long time,’ says top general;” Jerusalem Post, 22 Aug 2023 pg 1, 7.)
Operation Home and Garden began July 3 and ended July 5, 2023, and was active only in Jenin.
Operation Break the Wave in March 2022 and is ongoing, nationwide, but with a focus in Northern West Bank (aka Southern Samaria) after a spike in terrorist attacks began in 2021.
Yesterday’s attack in Hebron would be considered Southern West Bank, located in Judea.
“This is the fifth Israeli to die in a terrorist attack this month and the 29th victim this year. Twelve of the terrorist attacks took place in the West Bank (Samaria and Judea), but this was the first fatality this year in the South Hebron Hills.” (article, pg 1).
