Palestinian Terror: Stabbing Attack in Yishuv Tekoa [UPDATED 11:09AM IL]



10:22: [VIDEO & PHOTOS IN ARTICLE] One person has been wounded and a terrorist shot in a stabbing attack near Yishuv Tekoa, in the eastern Gush Etzion district. Zaka reports the victim in moderate-to-serious condition.

Additional details to follow as they become available.

10:30: The victim in the latest Palestinian terror attack was wounded in the upper torso. Magen David Adom is reporting a woman about 30 was wounded, reported to be in serious condition.

The terrorist was shot and killed.

10:37: The victim, who is pregnant, is listed in serious condition and is being transported to the trauma unit of Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

This is the second stabbing attack inside a yishuv in the past 24 hours. Last night, Mrs. Dafna Meir HY”D was stabbed to death in front of her home in Otniel, in the Southern Hebron Hills. Her levaya is taking place at this time, making its way from Otniel to Har Menuchos as an ambulance from eastern Gush Etzion transports the latest victim of Arab terror to a Jerusalem trauma center.

11:09: The terrorist appears to have entered the yishuv via a hole that existed in the security fence or one he made. The hole was spotted by IDF trackers operating in the community following the attack. The 18-year-old terrorist from Beit Lechem then entered a clothing facility, possibly a second hand store or gemach in the industrial area and attacked the pregnant woman.

The IDF has instructed all Gush Etzion area communities to immediately oust all Arab workers and shoppers in stores.

The tzibur is asked to be mispallel for the victim, Michal bas Esther as well as her unborn child.

  1. I emailed an on line petition I started December with the signatures and comments last night to Agudah, OU, UJA, JNF, ZOA, AIPAC, ADL and AJC to finally wake up and demand actual repercussions if the Palestinians who we send hundreds of millions to annually do not stop acting like the terrorist PLO of old. Lets see if any of them respond.
