On Palestinian lands in the Deir Istia area near Salfit.
His visit to this settlement outpost came one day before the elections, and after a great deal of tension with the settlers’ leadership, who attended the foundation stone laying ceremony for the settlement neighborhood, which bears the name “Niviyah Ahayad” in reference to Rabbi Ahayad Ettinger, who was killed in an attack near the settlement of Ariel two years ago.
