IDF Awards Two Heroes

Two Israeli civilians received IDF certificates of appreciation for having responded heroically to terrorist attacks. IDF Binyamin Brigade Commander Col. Amir Abulafia awarded the certificates to two residents of the Binyamin region of Judea and Samaria.

Moshe Benbenishti was cited for having "acted courageously when he did not lose his cool when attacked by rioters from the village of Zara el Kabaliye." In the incident, which occurred in March of this year, Moshe "used his personal pistol and hit one of the central inciters, and as a result saved his own life and scattered the mob that wanted to harm him."

Rabbi Erez Bar'on was praised for "acting with a perfectly cool head when he responded effectively and killed a terrorist who tried to attack him as well as a youth at the Shilo hitch-hiking post." The incident occurred a month ago.
