Three Israelis were killed and three were wounded shortly after 16:00 on Sunday in a drive-by shooting at a hitchhiking stop at the Gush Etzion junction south of Jerusalem. About an hour later, a teenager was shot and seriously wounded near Eli, in Samaria. The Fatah Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades claimed responsibility for both attacks. (News report)
Matat Adler, nee Rosenfeld, and her cousin, Kineret Mandel, were returning home from Jerusalem. A car from Carmel drove past and picked up hitchhikers, but there was no room for the two young women. A few minutes later, they were killed in the attack along with Oz Ben-Meir and three others were wounded.
Matat, who grew up in Beit Horon, completed her high school studies at the Or Torah Stone school in Jerusalem and then was drafted for army service.
Three months ago, she completed her army service as an officer in the Intelligence Corps. A month after her release, she married Yisrael Alder, an officer in the Armored Corps, and the couple settled in Carmel.
“She was planning on studying law, and being a judge, and bringing justice to the nation,”
a resident of Carmel said.
In the meantime, she was working in the area as a youth counsellor.
Matat (Rosenfeld) Adler was buried in Jerusalem.
She is survived by her parents, Naftali and Rivka Rosenfeld of Beit Horon, a brother, and three sisters.
