Two days after the attack near Hermesh in Samaria in which Meir Tamari was murdered, his widow Tal spoke today (Thursday) at Shiva about her husband who was taken from her and appealed to the prime minister and ministers to restore the checkpoints on Judea and Samaria roads.
Last night, Tamari was laid to rest in the cemetery. Two days after the attack, Tal, his widow, was interviewed. "We could still laugh, support, go to bed hugged, our lives were cruelly taken from us. We will continue to live here and establish more communities."

She said of Meir: "When he came into the room, he had tenderness in his eyes, he had good eyes. He would try to improve everything around him to make it better. He would tell me that it was important to him that his children grow up in a good place and do good for others. He knew how to do a lot, he was a technical man, besides being an electrician he knew how to do everything. His hands were omnipotent, and he shared this gift with everyone he could, he didn't keep it to himself. Everyone who knew him knew he was amazing."
Regarding the checkpoints, she said: "I know that there were checkpoints once, the attack happened near one of the checkpoints that was no longer active, and if it had been active, Meir would be here today and my children had a father. I had a husband, I had a life partner, and all this could have been avoided. It's our natural right to be here, it's our land, it's our land."

Regional Council head Yossi Dagan: "We are in an illogical reality. The entire nation of Israel, not just the residents of Samaria, every decent person joins this cry."
