As the people of Israel and those who stand with her mourned the loss of Dvir Sorek, the student and soldier stabbed to death in a terror attack this week, Israel’s prime minister visited the site of the attack. The Jerusalem Post’s Herb Keinon reports that PM Netanyahu made assurances that the murderers would soon be caught:

The terrorists are coming to destroy, “and we are coming to build,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday afternoon in Gush Etzion at the site of the murder of 19-year-old Dvir Sorek.

“We lost a dear son of the Sorek family,” Netanyahu said. “We embrace the family. Our answer to these murderers is twofold: First of all, they are coming to destroy, and we are coming to build.”

Secondly, he said, “we will apprehend them and bring them to justice.”

Netanyahu, who came to the site after holding security consultations in the Kirya in Tel Aviv, said that the investigation is ongoing, and that the turn the car did after the murder was evident at the site.

The prime minister stressed that in recent years the security apparatus has found all the terrorist murderers. “And I have no doubt, also based on what I have heard, that we will get to who committed this horrible murder, and bring them – and those who sent them – to justice…”
