Jerusalem (TPS) – Dafna Meir was laid to rest on Monday, January 18 following a funeral that began in her home community of Otniel and concluded in Givat Shaul in Jerusalem. Meir, 39, was stabbed to death in her home by a terrorist at approximately 5:00 pm on Sunday, January 17.
Despite attempts to save her by Magen David Adom paramedics who found her in critical condition, she succumbed to her wounds shortly thereafter and was pronounced dead.
Prior to the procession to Jerusalem, Mt. Hebron Regional Council Chairman Yochai Damari described the murderer as the “son of Satan.” He called upon Prime Minister Netanyahu to abandon the “illusory” notion of a Palestinian state. “The time has come to start implementing our sovereignty over Judea and Samaria. We are done with talk,” he said.
Political activist and Otniel resident Yehuda Glick called upon the Arab community to condemn the murder while demonstrating his resolve to fight against terror. “We are now suffering from a large and painful wound, but this will hurt them more than us. We will continue on with our lives,” he said.
