Friends Of Ezra Schwartz Killed In Terror Attack Pay Respects Before Coffin Flown To US



 Mourning services were held in Israel on Saturday for Ezra Schwartz, a US citizen who was killed in a shooting terrorist attack on Thursday in the West Bank along with two others, an Israeli and a Palestinian.
Friends paid their respects before his body was flown back to the US for burial.
Schwartz, 18, who was studying in Israel, was from Sharon, Massachusetts.
In the attack, near the Gush Etzion settlement bloc, a Palestinian terrorist drove along the shoulder of the main road and shot at crawling traffic, killing the three and wounding others, a police commander said.
The attack brought to 18 the number of Israelis and others who have died, along with 80 Palestinians, in a wave of violence over the past seven weeks
