Early Sunday evening, a terrorist stabbed 39-year-old Dafna Meir to death in front of her teenage daughter at their home in the town of Otniel, near Kiryat Arba in the West Bank.

Meir, who reportedly fought her Palestinian attacker to protect her children, leaves behind a husband and four children, aged 11 to 17.

A search is ongoing for the Palestinian attacker.

Thus far, the GuardianIndependentTelegraph and Times of London have all ignored the story.

Interestingly, the Indy did find time to publish an unrelated article by its Middle East correspondent on how Palestinians are “united” by Israel’s revived policy of demolishing terrorists’ homes. This article, by Ben Lynfield, was published more than 6 hours after the attack in Otniel.

Minutes before this post was published, another terror attack occurred in Tekoa, southeast of Jerusalem in the West Bank, where a pregnant woman in her 30s was stabbed and moderately wounded by a Palestinian assailant. The victim was evacuated to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

We’ll update this post if major UK news sites do eventually report on either of these latest attacks.

Meir was the 29th person killed since the latest wave of Arab terror began on October 1.
