The two Israelis were reportedly driving near the Jewish community of Dolev in Judea and Samaria when a Palestinian man signaled them to stop and asked for directions before shooting them at point-blank range.

Both victims were taken to Tel HaShomer Hospital, where one of the men succumbed to his wounds and died. Israeli security forces are still searching for the suspect.

On Saturday, hundreds flocked to the Lod cemetery to pay their final respects to Gonen. Devora Gonen, his mother, said in a eulogy, “You lived your life as a Jew, free in his land. You loved this land, you loved truth and that is how you lived.”
