Three murdered in Neve Tzuf terror attack
Elad Menahem Salomon, 36
July 21, 2017 - Elad Menahem Salomon, 36, of Elad, was one of three family memebers murdered in their home in the West Bank settlement of Neve Tzuf Halamish on Friday night.
Elad Menahem Salomon, 36, of Elad, was one of three victims from the same family who were murdered in a terrorist attack in the family home in the West Bank settlement of Neve Tzuf-Halamish on Friday night. The other victims were Elad’s father Yossi and his sister Chaya.
The family had gathered together for the Sabbath to celebrate the birth that morning of a new grandson in the family. They were expecting friends to join them when, instead, a Palestinian, resident of the nearby village of Kubar, burst into the house and attacked the family with a knife. The assailant was shot and wounded by an off-duty IDF soldier who heard screams from the neighboring house and rushed to assist.
Tova Salomon, 68, Yosef's wife and the mother of the two other victims, was wounded in the attack.
Elad, a computer technician, is survived by his wife, five children, his mother and three siblings. Accompanied by thousands of mourners, he was laid to rest on Sunday evening (23 July 2017) in the Modi’in cemetery together with his father Yossi and his sister Chaya.
