Following a deadly attack Sunday that left two dead and another injured, Israeli security forces searched for and killed the terrorist responsible for the murders. Killed in the attack were Rabbi Achiad Ettinger, a Tel Aviv rabbi and father of 12, and 19-year-old Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier Gal Keidan.

  • A third victim of the terrorist attack, 19-year-old IDF soldier Alexander Dvorsky, underwent surgery this week for his injuries and remains in serious condition.
  • U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke in a joint news conference focusing on Iranian influence in the Middle East. Netanyahu will travel to the U.S. next week to meet with President Trump.

  • Recent reports indicate that six more Hezbollah tunnels have been discovered in southern Lebanon, two of which have crossed into Israeli territory.
