On Sunday, hundreds of Israelis from Kiryat Arba, Gush Etzion, and Hebron demonstrated in front of the Prime Minister’s office in Jerusalem demanding that security be restored to roads, following weeks of attacks on residents.

Protesters highlighted the recent murders of Kiryat Arba residents Rabbi Ya’akov Litman, 40, and his 18-year-old son Netanel outside of the Jewish community of Otniel, as well as the murder of Ezra Schwartz, an 18-year old American on a gap year in an Israeli yeshiva, and Yaakov Don, 49, a teacher and father of four, who were both murdered outside Alon Shvut.

Demonstrators carried signs demanding a return to security on the roads, posters of Rabbi Litman and his son’s portraits with the slogan, “The Nation of Israel Will Win,” and other posters saying, “We’re tired of being targets.”

Among the speakers were Minister Uri Ariel, Deputy Minister Ayoob Kara, MKs Dudi Amsalem and Betzalel Smotrich, Director of Gush Etzion Regional Council Davidi Pearl, Rabbi Dov Lior, Kiryat Arba Mayor Malachi Levinger, Director of Hebron Mountains Regional Council Yochai Damari, and Binyamin Regional Council Chairperson Avi Roe.

Minister Ariel spoke of the imperative of security but stressed that security comes with Jewish housing construction which, under the Netanyahu administration, has been frozen. Davidi Pearl stated: “We cannot sit idly by while Jewish people are being killed on the roads and in all places in Israel. Instead we must kill the idea of a two-state solution, kill off the hope that feeds the terror, and apply Israeli law and sovereignty in Judea and Samaria. We are here to tell it to the Prime Minister, face to face.”

The Kiryat Arba school system was shut down on Sunday in light of the security situation and so that children could attend the rally.
