Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus announced this morning that Shlomit Krigman, the 24-year-old victim critically wounded yesterday in a stabbing attack in the Binyamin region community of Beit Horon, has died of her wounds.
“Shlomit was the sister of six siblings and a daughter of one of the founding families of the Shadmot Mehola community [located in the northern Jordan Valley]. She completed two years of National Service,” a Shadmot Mehola council spokesperson told Tazpit Press Service (TPS).
“She was a smiling girl, very friendly, and very loved by her friends,” the spokesperson continued.
The spokesperson said that Shadmot Mehola will grow and emerge stronger from this tragedy.
“The community of Shadmot Mehola is strong and we are supporting and embracing the Krigman family,” the spokesperson stressed. “It is important that the enemy understand that we will only grow stronger in our determination and our justified settlement of all parts of our land including the Jordan Valley.”
Binyamin Regional Council Chairman Avi Roeh offered his condolences to the Krigman family and also affirmed his own council’s determination to move forward and become even stronger than before.
“Our communities are strong enough to provide social, mental and security solutions with the help of the volunteers and teens in our communities,” Roeh stated. “Murderers will not succeed in removing us from here. We will only emerge stronger from these terrorist attacks.” (TPS)
