JNS.org – A 40-year-old Israeli man was stabbed and critically wounded near the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron on Monday, the first day of Hanukkah.

After the police realized the Palestinian terrorist was stabbing the Israeli man, they shot and killed him. Israeli ZAKA emergency volunteer David Edrai said, “We received notification of a terror attack near the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron. I arrived at the scene with two other ZAKA volunteers. There we saw a seriously wounded Israeli who was evacuated to hospital. The terrorist had been shot dead.”

Meanwhile, three Israelis were lightly wounded in a car-ramming and stabbing attack in Jerusalem on Sunday. The terrorist, Amar Yasser Skapi, drove his car on the sidewalk into two men, stopped the car, got out, and began waving his knife. An Israeli police volunteer was stabbed in the hand after Skapi approached his car. As Skapi ran away, an Israeli soldier chased him down and shot him.

    ‘An Israeli soldier chased him down and shot him.’ The perfect sequence of events. Very satisfying to read, and the only improvement would have been if the last word had been ‘dead’. No doubt the cretin in Sweden would call this an ‘extrajudicial execution,’ but this is exactly how these situations need to be played out. If a person is caught committing an act of violence/terror, they should be shot dead, every time; no questions, no mercy, regardless of age or gender. The only neutralized terrorist is a dead terrorist.

    ISRAEL should force the known Palestinians who support this violence and murder of Israelis out of the country,banning their families from the land of Israel.If they are against Israel, than force them out. It is not freedom of expression to murder people on the streets of Israel.
